Healthy right now.  But think I have about 2-3 days before I become a raging alcoholic.

This!  lol.  I am not an alcoholic but my 2020 resolution was to cut back.  No drinks during the week.
 

I was doing great.  Now I can’t leave my house? Am working from home while my kids are running around the house all day.  
 

oh boy

I've been cutting way back on beer as well in order to drop a few lbs. Still drinking scotch, however, as I'm not insane. 

Polished off 2 different growlers over the weekend to help support local businesses.  The growler/bottle shop that a friend owns isn't as impacted by the restaurant/bar closure in WA, but I'm not sure about my favorite brewery.

Not really a valid test.  There are probably only 20 people here in total.  No way will we know anyone with it (yet).

One of our job sites is shut down because one of the GC’s foreman’s wife is suspected to have it. She’s not being tested because she’s not high risk. Now we’re quarantining our guys for on that job site for 2 weeks. It’s going to be such a clusterfuck having to shut down job sites for 2 weeks anytime there has been potential exposure.

That wasn't the question, the question was, do you know anyone who does or has ? 

Pretty simple question that shouldn't tie twats in a knot.

There are currently 69 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Los Angeles county.  There's 10 million people here.  In 2 weeks there might be hundreds of thousands of cases, but its still a bit too early.

L.A. County Confirms 16 More Coronavirus Cases, Bringing Total to 69
Posted by Contributing Editor on March 15, 2020

Local health officials confirmed 16 more cases of coronavirus Sunday, bringing the county’s total to 69, as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said the city would comply with California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s order to close all bars, and officials prepared to use Dockweiler RV Park south of LAX as a quarantine zone.

Ten of the 69 cases are “likely due to community transmission,” the county health department said.

The cases announced Sunday include one with an unidentified source of exposure, three cases exposed during recent travel, two cases of health-care workers exposed in a health-care setting, four who had close contact with a confirmed case, and five that are pending more investigation.

The 16th case was previously reported Saturday by Long Beach officials, as that city has its own health department.

“We anticipate more cases and increased community spread as more testing occurs,” said Dr. Barbara Ferrer, L.A. County’s public health director. “We are asking everyone to expect more social distancing requirements as more cases are identified. Please do not call 911 to request testing for COVID-19 and please do not go to our emergency rooms unless you are seriously ill and require emergency care.

How many people have died in LA county this year from the regular flu?

i believe there are what 20,000+ plus deaths from regular flu in the US this season.  Why no hysteria about that?  How does this compare to other seasons?

The mortality rate of the flu is estimated at like 0.1%.  The mortality rate for COVID-19 is something like 2%-3%.  Towards the higher end if we do nothing and allow coronavirus to run rampant and overwhelm hospitals with patients.  COVID-19 isn't gonna wipe out humanity but its definitely killing at a higher rate than normal.  We're quarantining in the US as a science experiment it seems.

Experiences of the symptoms definitely differ between people, but I really appreciate the simple, insightful way this guy describes what he's feeling:

Media hype is focking this with a John Holmes sized d!ck. They should all be executed. Trump admin isn't doing us any favors shutting everything down creating more hysteria. Both kids out of work for at least the foreseeable future. I'm a bit upset

A friend of mine has been home with what he says is the flu. He has not gone to to the doctor or been tested. He lives alone so he says he doesn’t feel the need. He’s just riding it out.

I've been sick for 3 weeks now. Really bad cough, runny nose, earache, and sinus issues. I'm 98% positive it was a cold that turned into a sinus infection which is what normally happens to me this time of year. How do I get tested?
