I have to admit this is getting stressful

I'm a little bit over 60 yrs old, coming to work in elder healthcare facilities (not front line but obviously still exposed), exposing my family too and live in little NJ where we have 2492 new cases just today. Everyday, more and more issues at work dealing with issues related to COVID-19. It's on my other screen now as I type here. At night I am starting to dream about it too......... This board is a nice diversion. Even if we are talking about Coronavirus.

At 60 you should be ok if you get it... I’d be more worried if you have elderly parents around!!!

I have a few elderly neighbours and they are all in panic mode so I’m doing some shopping for them and dropping it at their front door... one told me she washes everything when she gets it with Reusable gloves and then throws the gloves out... crazy times and I feel for them...

Pretty eerie at the supermarket... you have to wait outside as they limit numbers and you can only go one direction through the aisles and always 2 meters apart.. so far everyone taking it seriously....

Hope it ends soon

Hang in there Rammer. Seems like we've veered into the twilight zone. I'm glad your getting supplies for your elder neighbors ElAcky. Hope it's over soon. What city are you in?

We are all in the same boat. Everybody has their own issues - elderly parents or at risk family members. I am concerned about my coworkers at risk and residents at the nursing facilities. As a manager, in on decisions being made, I feel responsible. Also, I have 2 pregnant daughters right now. Talk about timing. One is right on the front lines - a charge nurse at a hospital and still working..... We don't talk about it much, it's all upbeat but It's gotta be a little scary for them. With this emergency will they even have access to good healthcare when the baby comes? What if there are complications?

Rammer I am sure all will be fine.. the important thing is to stay positive and remember that they are healthy... I think i've only heard of 1 case of a pregnant woman dying and there are zero cases of children under 9 dying
