My schools here still haven’t decided to shut down (yet), but absent rates have substantially increased.

I forgot about coronavirus for a while and went to walmart, grabbed a 2 liter of pop, looked at magic cards, and left
didn't notice anything out of the ordinary

I would love to hear more about general back room conversation on toilet paper, hand sanitizer, lysol wipes, or bottled water is doing.

There is no toilet paper anywhere!!

I work as a cook at a Bar n Grill, and I believe the virus is going to be in our area some time within the next week based on the speed of transmission in my state, but for the moment I am still scheduled to be coming in to work.

Went to Walmart last night to get some rubbing alcohol cause I spilled shit on my controller. All rubbing alcohol, baby wipes, soap, latex gloves, etc. was out of stock.

Also I have no class for the next week. A ton of colleges/universities in MI closed down this past week.

my county and two more counties in the area closed down all K-12 public and private schools until april 24th and my dad is rescheduling his flight to see me; also a lot of comic and anime conventions are cancelling or rescheduling

*edit* also the preschool i work at is taking in students from grade-level schools as long as there aren’t any cases of known or suspected infections in their schools

Check your specific college/university

The college I work for, for instance, is remaining open as far as I'm aware. We're just not hosting any face-to-face classes.

So if you want literally anything from us that's not classroom related, our campus is still "kind of" open.

Like I said, it really depends on the college/university though.

My work might be closing until April. We're getting more details on Monday.

Had forced telework as an infrastructural/stress test of our VPN and overall ability to manage our work. Went both good and bad; got stuff done but not without some issues.

Schools in this state have closed for two weeks. I imagine forced teleworking will be on the horizon for me, just once some kinks are knocked out.

We mostly just joked about selling the cases on eBay instead of stocking them. Our warehouse will only send us two cases at a time right now to ration it out.

there was a confirmed case at the uni i went to, so they're shut down atm along with a lot of other schools in the area. luckily i graduated last semester so i don't have to deal with everything moving to online lol

Re: Coronavirus
 
all public schools in ontario are closed and the universites and colleges are closing one by one

people are lining up around the outside of costco and other grocery stores to even get inside and get supplies, and when they checkout, the lines wrap around the store. we had a presumptive case of a doctor who may have had it but cleared. I live right on the michigan border however and cases there have exploded. With the amount of back and forth travellers here in my city I feel like we will get hit pretty hard by this.

I find it hilarious that in the face of a pandemic the most important thing to people is toilet paper
