Sorry about your unplanned furlough.
Stay healthy and stay in touch, since I'd bet that Lake Norman has internet.
The job situation right now is really worrisome for all of us.
Who knows what might happen next week or even tomorrow?
It is a nice time of the year to be headed to the lake.
What can you catch there?

Good luck and enjoy your stay in the great state of N.C. Just be aware, N.C. and many other states have travel restrictions in place. My wife had to get an official statement in writing from the USPS, her employer, stating that her job and her travel to work and back was essential. Other than grocery shopping, driving to the pharmacy for a prescription pick up, and a few others, travel in N.C. might be frowned upon.

So you can file for Unemployment in early May. I'm guessing things get progressively moving upwards again in June. So maybe your layoff won't reach into July.

Just stay healthy until you get called back. Avoid getting too stressed out. You will make Mom happy spending extended time with her.

Peace-out Adam. Need anything...... just PM me. I can get to Pittsburgh in five hours and keep the speedometer under 80. Done that a few times already.

You should quarantine yourself for 14 days rather than risk getting your parents sick.

I'm on a doc. ordered quarantine...

was running a mild fever, little muscle soreness, extremely mildly sore throat, your basic flu-like symptoms.
in my town they set up a community hotline, describe symptoms, and they advise you how to proceed. they had me go to a "community testing center"(which just happend to be my regular doc's office) to be tested for Flu, strep, etc. not the big one.
was tested for both Flu and Strep, both Neg. temp @ time of exam was only 98.3 so not qualified for the big test...
they gave me a 14 day quarantine order. (Since they didn't know WHAT was causing my symptoms...)

Lucky for me, even though I do pay for the optional short term disablilty plan, I was sitting on 10 days(2 weeks worth) of paid time off Due to expire in May. I'd rather use those up first.

since that exam, Highest I've seen is 99.0, today, the highest was 98.6.. as long as that pattern holds... week and a half of unexpected "vacation" I guess...

mods please delete if you feel I've violated any rules.

Yes, traveling to an older person's house, parents included, for as visit is not something that should be done at this time.

As painful as it may be, I agree this is the right thing to do in order to protect your elders at this time.

My dad wants my sister and BIL with two small kids to come visit him and my mom for Easter. My sister said no, even though my dad was trying all kinds of emotional blackmail. She is doing the right thing, even if my dad doesn't realize it.

I am staying away from my mom and step father...

Because of 3 LEGITIMATE reasons...

#1 My mom and my step father both have a medical history that makes them potentially very vulnerable... Especially my mom... I have multiple sclerosis myself... So if I get it .. it will likely be harder on me than say a average person... I always get things harsher than my wife does...


#2 My area.... Highest rate in my state in per capita numbers... James city county and Williamsburg... Based up Virginia Dept Health numbers...

#3 I have seen first hand...... A bad viral influenza 2 years ago brought into my facility.... By a daughter... And it did take out her mom... She developed complications from it starting with pneumonia... Became respiratory impaired greatly and sepsis set in... And nearly her mom's neighbor who shared a common bathroom....
