    We have third party contracts that must be exercised. Approved work will get done even if no one is in the store. We did one like that today. There will be more to come.

    In my area, it wil be getting warm very quickly. Some stores have EMS, and the monitoring can detect if there is something that must be addressed, and that will become a service call.

    I would say that within a month we will begin to see the numbers trending downward, and everything will come to life again.

    In China, the numbers suggest an 8 week window halted the progression of the virus, so we are close to being half way there.

    Fear not.

    Not sure how my company is going to handle it yet. We have quite a few hospitals, data centers, etc that we take care of.

    I do have a system going in Saturday and another sold for next week.

    Here is something to think about:
    From the other side of the restaurant counter...
    Given how restaurants work, and what we know about sanitation in the kitchen...
    Would YOU want to eat there, given there is currently no cure for CVD19???

    I decided over the weekend... I am not gonna eat out (not even fast food) until this thing blows over...
    Gonna have to learn how to pack a cooler again...
    All food is handled by a human somewhere down the line. We are already on the front lines, exposed to other people, I am not going to worry about getting the Chinese Virus in a meal.

    Yeah, agree... all food is handled repeatedly by humans...

    However... no reason to make myself one of the statistics...
    And I am in my later 60's... so I am potentially at higher risk for the virus...

    I am stocked with frozen/non-perishable food... and will buy my produce at the Sr times (stores only open to Sr's), all local/organic grown, and thoroughly wash it before putting it in the (new) fridge.

    I get you point, I would not expose my self just the same under those circumstances. Our anniversary is on the 30th, it will be our first take out celebration.

    On Thursday, our governor declared that all of the stores had to close. That's right...the stores that we service. This resulted in the stores cancelling their approved work, for now. So, our company decided that we all needed to file for unemployment. It is not clear whether or not they are using the typical standard of two week before the checks begin. I have a nice chunk of cash in the bank, but man, yesterday got boring very quickly.

    So, in a couple of weeks, we will have to go from zero to 90....

    Gov Wolf is waving the usual 1 week waiting period for benefits.

    Good time, IMO, to get stuff done around the house!

    Then those irritating things, that always break at the WORST time,
    Are already fixed!

    I had a tree fall the other night... gonna get out the chain saw next week and trim a bunch of trees...
    Maybe take a few down.

    Nothing is being mentioned about waiving the time period on the unemployment portal for Pa, but that does not mean there is no immediate benefit. I'm sure no one wanted to take the time to tweak the site.

    "There is no longer a waiting period before a worker can apply for unemployment compensation. Those who apply may be eligible for benefits during their first week of being unemployed."

    - Workers no longer have to be looking for another job to file for unemployment. Formerly, applicants were required to be on the active pursuit for a new job.

    I saw it elsewhere also and heard announcement about this on NPR too.

    My company had 6 service calls this week.

    One of those was a call back for repeat failure of a part that we replaced recently.
    Hopefully next week we will be able to do a couple of installs

    We’ve got our two new young guys on 3 day weeks. We’ve got some construction projects going that have helped keep guys busy. If those jobs start shutting down, we’ll all be sitting at home.
