I asked this a week ago when I was a no and got pretty much no's from everyone else. Tonight I skipped my first social gathering, a friends Birthday party at a bar out of pandemic concerns.  How about the rest of you?

I've been self-isolated ever since I was made redundant nearly 3 years ago, so...

I haven’t and I probably won’t. I don’t go to that many crowded places anyway.

Since this past Tuesday, I stopped going to Planet Fitness and going out to restaurants.  Even though I am not really thinking that I would be that much at risk, I figured I'd better take the extra care for a couple of weeks just because I'm in the elderly age group and have a heart condition (do four heart attacks, a quadruple bypass, and a defibrillator/pacemaker count?).

Yes.  I was supposed to go to a birthday party Sat, and due to this it was cancelled. I was glad, because it can be postponed for another time. 

I am afraid to touch screens at the supermarket check outs, or at atms. So avoiding trips as much as possible and  making things with what I have. When I have to, I make sure I clean my hands with sanitizer as well as the car steering wheel and  door knobs I touched.

I cant say I've skipped anything because I haven't planned anything even before the virus. I am getting more concerned than I was on your last Q.

Do we have any idea how long this will go on for?

My nephew is a virologist, and said to my brother, who was afraid to go to California in April to see his son, that by the time April comes around the disease will have covered more than half if the US. So he told my brother to go,  use precautions, and not to worry. Have himself a Corona when he gets there. I myself would cancel. 


My nephew was going to the US, Disney world next week, but its closed.  I hope he gets his money back

I haven't and am looking to take advantage of these cheap flights.

Yes, the husband and I had a trip planned up to DC for this weekend to see the museums, monuments, and catch a  couple shows.We cancelled it 6 hours before our train left because things were shutting down and we didn't want to risk bringing anything home to his 70 year old diabetic great aunt who lives with us.

No.  I stay in constant exposure because of my job, so it has dulled my vigilance.

Furthermore,  the panic and overreaction to it leads me to believe that, along with all the other virus scares over the years (Y2K (computer virus), bird flu. Swine flu, sers, Zika, Ebola), are just that.  Scares.

For real, I am taking this shite seriously because I have never seen tv coverage 24x7. Plus I am older than the previous outbreaks and am immuno- compromised. I take a monthly biologic that further reduces my immunity. I never remember constant tv coverage and NIH warnings about going to gyms bars and restaurants all while encouraging folks not to panic. So which is it? A National Emergency? Or an over reaction?

Dr Fauci head of NIH is cautioning people to hunker down and stay out of public places period.

Oh, and all schools in Ohio K-12 are closed, all colleges are closed and of last night all casinos!

Time to make popcorn and watch tv, drink, smoke or have sex or maybe all four. Lol. Anxiety doesn’t workout well for sex if you know what I mean?


Definitely, all four.  The sex is particularly relaxing and stress relieving in my book.

Im being more cautious now as before I wasn't really.

my work closed down for 3 weeks and a lot of places are closing down where I live; the library, rec centres, the casinos. etc. the local mall has reduced the operating hours. Im surprised my gym (La Fitness) is still open. 
just hanging out at home now and was going to go to the casino with my girlfriend later but now that's cancelled.
