How come there is no glove on that hand and do you sanitize after every shift? Thanks for the fun photo to lighten things up.

Stuck at home? Ive been working everyday so far. What is nice though is i can come in between 9am-10am and hopefully be done by 2pm-3pm. Wake up have breakfast with the family then go to work. Kinda weird to be doing that and it's not a Sat or Sun.

Shifter is amazing just hope you have sanitizer for it, and apply every time you shift.

Did anyone see the movie Pappion with Steve McQueen? When he was in solitary confinement he would get to stick his head out of a small door on his cell once in awhile, that is how I am starting to feel.  At least another two to three weeks of this lockdown. Hope this all works out. Best wishes to all.

How I wish for our lives to get back to normal once the lock down is over. I know that will be impossible until a vaccine has been formulated.

Yeah. A vaccine can take a year or so before one is ready. I heard a couple weeks ago they've been making progress on that part but it'll be a while before it's ready for use...

My department has been put on Furlough. Since I am the only warehouse employee I can kinda make my own schedule. Decided I should start rolling in at 7am instead of 10am. It will still keep me under 40 hours a week. If I work enough hours a week I wont have to deal with filing for unemployment and it wont effect my bills.

No being stuck at home here, for now.  My company makes release liner, which is used in graphics, labels, automotive, gaskets, and medical industries.  Been busy with normal engineering work.  The decrease in traffic makes for a more enjoyable drive every day.

There are less vehicles on the roads but today at 7am I was surprised how many there were. The freeway was full but flowing at an ok pace.

Ive been working fairly normally, as construction is essential somehow. My commute has been super awesome with less people on the road.

Construction is essential here too, and I was told because if construction doesn't finish some people will be living on the streets. Dunno how true that is though.

I live close to the freeway and it sounds like lots of travel today.
