That most deadly week was driven by a record day mostly composed of deaths from previous months finally being reported. If you look at deaths by the date of death graph though, they've been going down.

I think this thread has gotten too big, getting weird errors when trying to post.

Last week was the most deadly in Florida and today there were 595 new cases in Florida. I don’t share your confidence.

I strongly agree with you on the food bank suggestion. We calculated how much we saved by not eating out and sent them that amount. Last week was the Giving Challenge in Sarasota and two foundations each matched your first $100 in donations. The Cat Depot traditionally wins the Giving Challenge with just over $100,000. This year the food bank “won” with $621,000. Take that you pesky cats.

Given the amount of food slated to spoil that isn't going to the restaurants right now, there's no excuse for food banks to not be well stocked right now. I know New York state was planning to buy up their farmers' surpluses and the feds started talking about doing the same.

My (small) group of friends that ever get together in person had our last in-person gathering right about a week later. We've been on video-conferenced meetings since.

The way my forums are formatted, it's up to page 2321.

Look at these idiots. Why can't they take it seriously? Hold on just a bit longer or we're going to be right back at the beginning again. At work the past few days there are more and more groups of full families, 5- 6- 7-strong, all ages, with not a mask in sight. They act likes it's Spring Break. Beer, sandwiches, chips, junk food, etc.

I feel like the employees are going to be stuck wearing these masks for months still since the public as a whole is rapidly getting sick of being cautious and unselfish. Meanwhile all of these fucknuts like Trump and all of the tiny penis I'm going to take my big gun to a open-the-country protest are emboldening these fools to ignore the truth. 'Murica!

I'm totally ignorant of what the right move is going forward, but I confidently say that we are going to feel the residual damage of this pandemic on our education system for years to come. Assuming that the more pressing need like the food students get from the school system can be ignored, If the school year doesn't start like normal in the fall, I have no idea how the current education system is going to juggle the gaps in learning we are going to face.

For people who WFH (without kids) I would imagine this could be the case if they have any degree of self discipline.

Heavily dependent on the gig I think. Every CPA I know is WFH and still pulling 50+ weeks.

Mike Pence has ended his self quarantine after 24 hours and will be at the White House today.

So there’s still a chance they can infect the whole bunch of them.
