I doubt that you can even go inside at this point. The only places where you can go inside around here are places that have takeout but no drive through. I picked up lunch from Black Bear Diner earlier today, was a little tired of fast food.

We have one here. Good food and big portions. Usually the place is packed all the time.

my grandma passed today at the ripe age of 100 but no one could be by her side because she was in the hospital.  she was such a sweet sweet lady.  truly not a bad bone in her body.  

I don’t see them postponing games. Worst comes the worst they just play games without people in attendance.   Should be normal for the Marlins but for everyone else it will be pretty weird.

It looks like the A‘s can still play home games.

So I've been tossing this around in my head for a few days:

My daughter (20) works at Dunkin' Donuts doing random, various tasks. Some days she's the drive through person, some days the order fulfiller, some days, etc.  (you get the picture).  It's a part time job where she happens to make pretty decent money that helps her to afford the things she wants and helps with college expenses.  She has a group of work friends that is her social circle right now.  (She commutes to CSUF.)

Dunkin' currently has walk-in and drive through services, but no indoor seating is allowed.  I'm a little uncomfortable with her working and have attempted to dissuade her from continuing to work.  Her mother (my ex-wife) and my current wife agree that the risk outweighs the benefits.  We've both had discussions about her quitting, but my daughter continues to resist.  She can be quite the little bitch when she puts her mind to it. 

I haven't pulled the Dad Card yet, but I'm worried enough that I may have to. My question (at long last):  am I overreacting?

She's explained Dunkin's "commitment to cleanliness", wears gloves, and washes hands often.  I've countered with many of the logical arguments.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

To complicate things even further, a lot of opinions on this are sharply divided along political lines.    I live in a conservative area and our school board is already planning on opening schools on April 23rd  (as compared to CSULB, which has decided to go strictly online until the end of the school year).   My decision process is much less complicated because I don't have to consider economic/political concerns that the school board does....so, when the time comes, if I don't feel very good about the safety....my HS sophomore is staying home.   But she's 16  (not 20) and I would think a Dunkin Donuts would be a much cleaner environment that a HS campus w/ 1,000 student (not the most hygienic group)  mingling all day.

Older people would rather die than let Covid-19 harm US economy – Texas official

Lieutenant governor Dan Patrick tells Fox News: ‘Do we have to shut down the entire country for this? I think we can get back to work’

*************************

Maybe the stupidest thing I've heard so far. I'm 70 years old and wouldn't want to die to save the economy. Although I have no problem with him being willing to die to save the economy. One less moron to worry about.

At 20 I would let her do her thing. As long as she's healthy she's not in real personal danger. I don't have the desire to battle my girls on  every bad decision they make. Too exhausting

I know the Rockies Season will be postponed awhile because Denver is under quarantine. Probably The Mariners and The Phillies Seasons will be postponed as well, meaning yes, Baseball in general will be postponed. The six-feet separation would be rather difficult in a Major League Ballpark. Once the pandemic ends, which I hope will be soon,  who knows. At the very least, Baseball Season will be late starting this year.

Damn, I'm really sorry to hear that. Wish the best for you and the rest of your family.

We had our first positive case, confirmed on Thursday. This is an employee who didn't run a fever until about a week in, meaning that she passed our temperature screenings every day on the way to work. She works intake, so both of our intake units are on quarantine for the next two weeks. This is what I have spent the past two days on - that, and people further losing their minds. My employees are still showing up for work. I left the office about an hour and a half late today, making sure that everything is in place for the weekend.

This just hit the local news, so the family calls are just beginning.

I am on call for the southern region over the weekend. Three institutions with about 6,000 inmates total, two of them intake centers. We will see what that brings.

They don't make them like that anymore.  Deeply sorry for your loss.

Oh @Dochalo I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine what you and your family went through during her remaining time in the hospital. 

What a sad time it is when we can't be around our elderly loved ones.

Wow 100. What a blessed life. Sorry to hear this. People that survive a life of longevity like this are very special. She saw a lot of things along the way. May she RIP.
