    I’m already quarantined. The building I’m in is empty. Nobody is allowed here. The only ones here are all in the same situation potentially infected by the same people. We were all already here when we found out this morning.

    Nobody had symptoms, nobody is sick.
    The group of us here all were around individuals that were around other individuals that are sick. One is a confirmed case.
    Doctor doesn’t want me to get tested. I’ve called.
    If I or any of us show symptoms we are going to get tested and go home.
    There’s nobody here that is not potentially at risk. And like I said we are in the same situation potentially infected by the same group of people.

    YES.

    A local restaurant owner was in contact with one of the 1st that got it out here. He was advised to follow voluntary quarantine. He DIDNT.

    12 days later he's been confirmand positive. How many people has he been in contact with in the last 12 days?

    You can carry this disease 10 - 14 days with NO symptoms yet carry it and pass it on. It is not something to mess with.

    There are not enough test kits available presently so no one knows if there OK or a Carrier!

    Keep a distance from everyone

    Were 3 - 4 weeks away from hitting the peak IF were lucky.

    The resort I work at employs around 2500. Nearly 3000 rooms. Eighteen restaurants, food or beverage outlets, a commissary and two high-process banqueting kitchens. Main business focus is conventions and tourists. TENS of thousands normally pass through our doors each month.

    This week, the rapidly escalating & harsh facts of this so-called pandemic has left the place a ghost town. MANY layoffs or furloughs decided on...virtually overnight. TONS of food removed from the many, MANY refrigeration units, then shutting them down and opening the doors. Also shutting off gas to cooking appliances, shutting off hoods - and turning out the lights.

    Only ONE restaurant remained open today. That restaurant NORMALLY feeds over a-thousand through three meals, but they only fed thirty people when they shut down at their new closing hours of 2pm.
    Our in-room dining kitchen had only taken FIVE meal orders as of 4pm.

    In engineering, we're already on reduced hours, but I'm expecting similar scaling down to a skeleton crew before weeks end. Nothing has been said of that, but these things happened ELSEWHERE within hours of those folk's LAST DAY.

    I'm surprise they haven't announced any suspension of operations yet like resorts in Las Vegas and Colorado have.

    We have 6 techs and we are on an rotation for every service call. We can defer it and wait for the next round. Some of us have younglings at home that daycare is still open but who knows how long.

    I’m curious about my union classes, I’m 3 classes short of turning out and they are shut down for the foreseeable future.

    Looks to have been a false alarm. We traced everyone’s steps back and found those that were infected or exposed didn’t come in contact with us. The suspected cases were diagnosed today by a doctor as non-Coronavirus related.

    His this crisis cost you your job yet? With the service industry getting crushed right now, how long can you hold out?
    I wouldn't say it has cost me my job. But I may have to get a side job to survive till summer. This winter was killer mild and the summer before it was record slow for us. So really a perfect storm to make us go broke. I think we are all broke and reaching our credit limits.
