For the full time job jammers:

How many people dropping dead in your general area will it take for you to say ‘f it’ and just go surfing every day ?

If people start dropping like flies society won’t quite be on “walking dead” rules but we can’t still be on regular society rules right?

I've already decided that if I'm on the 'self-isolation' program, it's okay to slip out to go surfing because I usually come in close contact with zero people.

In all seriousness, I am carefully watching the situation and wondering when it is appropriate to request the ability to work remotely. Being that my wife is immunosuppressed, she falls into the higher risk "pre-existing condition" category. Not worth the risk coming into a germy office and possibly bringing something home for her to catch if I can reasonably and adequately do my job from home.

I'm in the military, my position is manned literally 24/7 365 days a year no matter what is going on, rain, snow, hurricane, etc.. I figure I'd just be told bring some clothes to work and be quarantined until the end of time. Gross.

I work at a institution of higher ed with folks from all over the world, but I have have life insurance. I'm with Chilly, "why would I go to the office when I can reasonably and adequately do my job from the beach?"

I don't have a job and otherwise had to turn down an offer in January because of all the Doctor visits and such, , , .

I can't surf as long as I have this friggin chemo port in my chest, , , , I only get to surf the internet!

And now, with me having MDS, my White Count is only 1.0. The "normal range" is 4.2 to 10.3! So, and as such, I'm not supposed to go ANYWHERE! The VA has told me that if I get a fever or otherwise "don't feel good" to give them a "notice" call and go straight to an Emergency Department. But, I am going to go to the liquor store and get a big bottle of mid-grade tequila.

I remember surfing Windansea during the SARS epidemic and Bill Andrews asking me if I was infected (I cough a lot due to cold air asthma during early morning sessions). That still brings a smile to my face. "The hell is wrong with you? You have SARS or something?"

I'm planning to spend my quarantine days at the beach for sure.
