    And I must admit I bought extra amounts of canned goods, peanut butter, pasta and oatmeal.

    The Caronavirus......? What say you

    People are panicking, which is never a good thing. Is it serious, yes, but if everyone uses basic good hygiene, and doesn’t run around shouting “the sky is falling”, I think we will be okay. Remember the scare with h1n1. There were over 12,000 deaths in the US, but there are over 327 million people in the United States, so you’re talking about very, very low percentage. Not a health related scare, but also remember Y2K. People were so sure that something horrific was going to happen and nothing did. I’m not saying that we should all ignore it, but everyone needs to take a step back and not panic.

    I am concerned, and I think everyone should be, but some people are just plain out panicking. I did see someone wearing a mask when I was out running errands a couple of days ago, but other than that, I have not seen any evidence that people are overreacting--no evidence of anyone buying what looks like extra supplies, no empty grocery store shelves. At this point I would want to avoid travel and very crowded venues if I had any plans to do those things--which I don't--but beyond that I am continuing with my normal routine.

    I agree with everything everyone posted....very true
    BUT
    As the old saying goes it’s never a problem until it is.

    we never think it will never effect us until it does.

    I just wish it was not politicized but like everything else today it is and will continue to be.

    kinda sad if you ask me.

    Hmmm, someone VERY like you once said years ago that they were thinking of firing any employee that had a bumper sticker that said voter for_______.

    Lol

    I just turned 50 the first week of February and officially retired February 26th on my youngest sons 12th birthday.

    looking forward to a quiet life on Lake Keowee in South Carolina in the Blue Ridge Mountains fly fishing the rest of my days away with family and friends and the occasional vacation with the Chief.

    The only thing on my mind is Sailfish, Trout, Tarpon, Bonefish and Tarpon.......Not employees or politics.

    I'm not panicking but I did just cancel a trip to San Francisco (involving air trave) to meet up with my brother and sisters for a sibling reunion. I wouldn't have canceled it, but I watch my granddaughter 2 days a week and my daughter, her mother, is 4 months pregnant so I can't afford to take a week off on vacation and then 2 weeks to ensure that I'm not just pre-symptomatic.

    I was really looking forward to going, but in this case, I believe being extra cautious is warranted.

    BD, congrats on retiring and welcome to the club!

    ^^^I don’t blame you, especially with a pregnant daughter and watching grandchildren. No reason to take unnecessary risks.

    No need to panic now but just wait if this stuff starts spreading through elementary, middle and high schools. I pray it doesn’t.

    Took a little road trip to Florida Coast Thursday Friday and Saturday about a 5 hour drive so cleaning company could deep clean the house and take the kids deep sea fishing.

    My Nephews first time.

My heart is full for you and your family. God bless!
