    We have 10 offices across the country and I have upgrades and on site maintenance to do. I can’t drive to 8 of them and without a you had it test I am not ready to hop on a plane but in May I may be willing to. Tests and treatment options make me more comfortable.

    45 in good shape but knowing if I win the reverse lotto that it where to become serious for me options (pills) other than a vent is a good thing.

    Went to a few Lgs’s yesterday. The first had you check in and wait in your car for your turn to shop. I was really just passing time until the place I wanted to go to opened. So I left and tried another place that was closed.

    Finally I went to the place I wanted to go to all along and they weren’t even letting people in the building. They had tables out front and their employees would allegedly go get what you needed and come back. I went there with the intent to get a .22 pistol or rifle to start my kid on and have for small game. I wasn’t sure which yet. I left rather disappointed. I know they are trying to protect their employees, but it’s got to be losing them sales as well. Why keep the store open if these policies are in place? It can’t be cost effective.

    I wouldn't be getting on a plane now either. Agree treatment options would relax things a lot.

    I think the true experts have said what they had to say, the next level, the guys who read up on it a lot, are realizing they don't have much to add to the story, and the rest of us are already aware of what could happen and what we re doing. Not really much to say after that besides the anecdotes that we all have to offer. There are plenty of other threads for that.

    I am looking at the same thing. It seems I should have put some back in two weeks ago. I have been expecting the market to go much lower. I am not sure how to reconcile what the market is doing with reports like the link below.

    The downturn yesterday doubled today, 49 new cases increased to 98. Kansas jumped from 747 cases to 845. Three counties in Kansas has over half of the states total number of cases 522. Currently there are 198 in the hospital and 25 deaths so far. Just over 8K testing negative.

    I wouldn’t have. The only thing that surprised me is that it wasn’t an Avian Flu virus.

    I’ve been expecting this for years.

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is in intensive care at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, 10 Downing Street said.

    "Over the course of this afternoon, the condition of the Prime Minister has worsened and, on the advice of his medical team, he has been moved to the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital," a spokesperson said in a statement.

    Johnson was admitted to the London hospital last night with persistent symptoms of coronavirus, 10 days after first being diagnosed.

    Wow. I guess that means he is on a ventilator?

    Edited: OK, I see where it says he is there as a precaution in case he needs ventilation.

    It will be interesting to see if they ever release what treatments they have tried/are trying on him.

    In Austria they now have 4 rules in place. A person can go outside if: 1. Going to work. 2. Going to walk as an exercise. 3. Going for groceries. 4. Going to support someone.

    SECDEF issues guidelines for how troops will start wearing face coverings in public:

    Service members will be instructed to start wearing face coverings in public in the latest effort to limit the spread of the deadly coronavirus, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said in a military-wide memo issued Sunday afternoon.

    DoD will not issue masks specifically for this and the memo says individuals should make their own face coverings.
