    Yes, there are different circumstances that I guess we all need to be sensitive to. It is especially worrisome for you and for people who are in densely crowded areas. I live in an upscale suburb with plenty of personal space, but the grocery store wipeouts are still quite bad. But I have seen some indications of programs set up to deliver to and support those who can't leave their homes. That is encouraging.

    My youngest has a fever and a cough so we're following the UK advice and self isolating for 2 weeks as a household. None of the rest of us have symptoms yet, my youngest is 15 months so picks things up all the time so it could be anything. Only 3 days in and climbing the walls already! Got to take this all seriously though, my mother in law has cancer and is in her 60s so is really at risk.

    We're also self-isolating as a family. The youngest hasn't been to school after Friday, but the oldest went in yesterday. When I called our 2 weeks isolation in this morning school just said: 'Thanks for letting us know.' I hope they'll get to complete some independent work, because we both still have to work from home.
    On the plus side, I discovered that I can arrange meetings with students in a virtual classroom. Some of my students have been playing uke version of songs we listened to this year. So, I'll see if they would like to meet up in a virtual classroom and play the songs online together. I think it would help us stay normal...

    I'm glad I get along well with my wife. If it gets stressful, it's just a matter of turning down the hearing aide.

    I am also trying self isolating and one week in, am finding it hard work! I generally walk everywhere and enjoy the fresh air, even if walking about in our city. I miss that freedom. So far so good, but it is increasingly hard for someone as naturally sociable and friendly as myself. Being elderly, I suppose iti s the sensible course, but to quote Joni Mitchell; You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone'!
    All power and respect to you Concert,Tenor and Baritone players, but Soprano is what does it for me every time! (And my beautiful Sopranino!)

    We brought our adult daughter back home. She had been living alone in another state. We're sort of distancing from each other.

    We are having my spouse who is at the cut off age in our State stay at home. My work is open but I've been staying home. Hopefully I will still have a job.

    Everyone hang in there and stay healthy.

    Today, I thought it might be me. Despite being pretty much isolated since Friday night, today I awoke with a sore throat and dry cough, with a few sneezes and runny nose. Monitored all day, luckily no fever or body aches, and a good hunger. Really pretty mild. I'm thinking/hoping it's just a normal cold, which I normally kick to the curb quickly with lots of water, Vitamin C and zinc lozenges. We'll see in the morning. Hopefully I won't need to bore you by writing the "Corona Blues".
    Same symptoms here. I think some trees are blooming here in southern New England and it might be the pollen thatís causing the sinus stuff, burning eyes, sore throat etc. At least I hope so, fwiw, my wife is feeling it too.

    Seasonal miseries continue, coronavirus or no coronavirus.

    Washing my hands, staying in, hoping for the best.

    To me, the burning eyes are a dead giveaway that it's allergies. We are hoping here in Florida that our numbers are staying fairly low because the big yellow globs of pollen are gobbling up the corona germs just like pac-man--- wacca wacca wacca wacca...

    I'm blessed in that I work at home and at my own pace, so I'm good with the distancing. My wife and I have been walking every day. I don't think that one has to confine themselves to the house, just can't have close contact. Other than being old and taking meds for blood pressure, I'm healthy. I have enough food for a couple of weeks, but we decided to also use this as a good opportunity to lose a little weight, which would not hurt me at all. So we have been just eating meals and not eating all day long. That will help stretch out what we have. My wife is a marketing consultant for a winery and we have forty bottles of wine in the basement, along with an assortment of liquors and beers. While we have embraced the idea of losing a little weight, we don't want to go overboard with it, so a glass of wine in the evening or a rum and Coke in the afternoon is still part of our routine. That's my report.

    Our biggest thing is our grand daughter who lives a half hour away. Her parents both have to work and she goes to daycare. My son in law works here in town and commutes. Often he will bring her up with him and we have her for the day. My daughter thinks that it is not a good thing for her to come up with all the exposure they are getting. They are just worried she will give us something. So we talk to her on the phone or zoom it. That's not as much fun, but it works.

    Just as I was writing this my daughter said that she will be working from home.

    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.
