I am fine now but I was ill for about five weeks (cough, horrendous sore throat, very very tired) but as it started on 7 January I just thought "I've never had a cold like THIS before." At the time it didn't occur to me that it could be the virus that was causing problems in China - how could I possibly have caught it?
But on New Year's Eve I had been travelling on trains going to, through, and from Gatwick airport carrying passengers coming from abroad including skiing trips in Italy, Austria and France, and I had spent nearly an hour at Gatwick station amongst these travellers. So now I believe I have had the virus, and I am looking forward to the antibody test being available to see if I am right.

Willie-O, our friends who live in B.C. and who enjoy cruising had previously booked a cruise to see the fall colours along the Maritime coast and New England. They decided to cancel. Better to be safe than sorry; my friend did once succumb to norovirus on a cruise and doesn't want to catch anything else, after that experience.

Been very very long! Me and Molly are holed up in our Ottawa Valley home, made the year’s maple syrup and I am almost fully supplied with next year’s firewood. Tilled the garden.

Normally I’d be in Cape Breton by now—lobster opening day today in fact, but it wouldn’t be the same even if we were down there. No deadheading on my buddy’s fishing boat, certainly no gigs. No pub sessions. The past few years I got back into busking because I discovered the Sydney waterfront is fertile ground for yer stirring shanties when cruise ships are in. Believe it or not they are now planning to start coming again in August, and fall looks as busy as ever, lots of big ships. Don’t know what to make of that. Masked busking or just stay away? Provincial borders are still sorta-closed anyway.

I’ve been too dispirited to play much music. But I’m happy to have lived long enough to be (temporarily, but still) receiving a living wage from the Canadian government to be an unemployed folksinger. So, speaking rhetorically, god bless Canada, and all of you.

Easing of restrictions here in New Zealand tomorrow, many businesses back to work. However, not completely freely. No groups of more than 10 allowed, don't sit next to strangers on the 'bus, 1metre spacing from others, phone orders into takeaways, book into restaurants, stuff like that.   
We did get off very lightly so far, though. Not many carriers, prompt government action, most people accepting the restrictions.
Only 21 deaths, two souls in hospital.
Haste the inoculations, because that's what it will take to get rid of Covid 19.

All self-isolated, and a bit scared of the nearby centre for asylum seekers where some 25 people caught 19. But for the moment, staying in should mean staying safe. School might re-open start of June, thus the coming week will be a lot of planning to see if we can social distance but still welcome everyone back in. Possibly it'll be mixed distance learning and classroom.
Just had the invitation for the Workum Liereliet, and I'm wondering whether start of October we will actually be able to gather in the hundreds without getting infected. Even so, I'm not sure what shanty I could do at the open podium, finding something that goes well with a disease running around.
But if the centre for asylum seekers will not spread 19 further, then we should be alright.

The mental health clinic, after two months of suspended admissions,
is resuming new admissions this week.
As they are all from out-of-state and
the pandemic restrictions are still on,
the new admits (if they don't say No at admission, which they may)
will be quarantined for two weeks
in the admit wing of the clinic's in-patient residence.

i'm one of the patients who has volunteered to help
to make the newbies feel at home,

here in the Big Smoke, on the edge of the CBD we also have screens in our supermarkets & pharmacies, & not so many people on the streets, or in buses & trains. Several times I've been the only person on the bus, my very own private chauffeur-driven bus which carries up to 80 passengers!

Tho as I live in backpackerland, I do see groups of young folks not taking the situation seriously.

Another group that does not take things seriously (well, has many members who do not take things seriously) are footballers - young Gods for whom rules to not apply, who post their infringements on social media for their worshippers to see.

Ebbie, so sorry to hear about your animals. Keep on being Rapunzel in your tall tower.

When all this madness was getting underway in mid-March both Himself and I had a hair trim. He of course didn't have as much off as I did (I have long hair so only need a tidy-up trim every six months or so, but this time had several inches taken off) and is now finding out that his barber has probably retired; he has talked about doing so for the past year or more, and now his shop has closed.

Being in a country town makes it easier than if we were still living in the Big Smoke. We venture out once or twice a week for fresh food, and of course for the drug run when we need medications. Many stores now have put in clear screens as barriers between staff and customers, and you can bet your life they won't ever be removed.

The rate of infection is still rising in my part of the great state of Texas, so I'm being very careful about going out. Today I picked up dog food and some takeout Chinese for lunch. Last week I got take out Mexican. I want my favorite restaurants to survive.

The garden is growing and I have time to expand it out over the next couple of weeks for some of the hot weather plants. I'm starting some from seed right now.

I did my shopping for meat over the last few weeks and have cut up some beef and pork into single portions and frozen them. I already had a lot of individual portions of chicken and fish. Grains and cereal are fine, and it's usually fresh vegetables and fruit that take me out to the store every couple of weeks. As summer advances it'll just be fruit since I'll be growing my own vegetables.

I fear I won't be making many trips out or resuming my museum volunteer work for several months. If you live in a state that doesn't take this very seriously, you have to do all you can to protect yourself because the governor is more interested in my pocketbook than my health.

Ebbie, I'm so sorry about your animals. This is a terrible time to be suddenly bereft.

In Stratford, Ontario, CET and I are rubbing along, our routine in retirement changed most by the closure of Ontario's provincial court system (CET was doing Legal Aid lawyering). We both work at home anyway, each tapping away at our respective computer. He has a very messy office, I work in the study, which I keep neat because otherwise I could not stand it.

Our garden is waking up and the trees are full of robins, cardinals, blue jays and mourning doves. CET goes out for long hikes on the Avon Trail. My range is shorter, thanks to arthritis in my feet, but I can still do up to eight km (five miles) around town. I like to check out the geese doing flotilla manoeuvres on the river, and the municipal swans preening on the banks. The great blue herons and the cormorants should be back soon from their winter quarters down south.

Some other Canadian provinces are beginning to re-open their economies, but not Ontario yet. I'm not at all sure that I'm prepared to take the risk of letting anyone who is not CET breathe on me, even to get my hair cut. As for restaurants ... Um, no. We can cook, and are not that desperate for the company of others.

I am in my 11th week of self isolation and if was young, had long hair, a curvy body in a long gown and my apartment was in a tall tower I'd spend even more time at the window. But I cope.

I have my windows open as often as I can. Today and yesterday the sun shone and that was nice.

I am now fully alone. I had my cat put to sleep on March 1 and two weeks ago I had to put down my beloved little dog- he had developed pancreatitis and it was time.

The weather here in London is gorgeous if a bit nippy. This is a bit of a smack in the face for those trapped at home without gardens but we are seeing more restraint with people not flocking to the parks. Phoebe had a cough last week and chose to self-isolate. Her office asked if she would like to go on furlough (the company can then reclaim 80% of her salary from the government). The cough passed, and hasn't been passed to Liz or me, so Phoebe and Liz went for a big shop yesterday. The supermarkets are restricting the numbers in store so they had to queue for a while but everything on the shopping list was in stock although they had to buy different brands for some items. Phoebe has gone into work today as nothing seems to have happened about the furlough. From conversations with her manager it seems they may operate a rota so that there are 2 or 3 people on site each day.

We live not far from the local hospital and I occasionally pass by when exercising. There are a lot more patient transport ambulances (as opposed to emergency vehicles) outside the hospital than usual. In less than a week they built a facility for cleaning vehicles and now the ambulances are waiting in 2 lines, one awaiting cleansing and one ready for use. There are far fewer people outside of the hospital, even to take a smoking break. The majority of out-patient clinics are suspended and visitors are being discouraged.

I've been in solo seclusion since leaving work on March 19, and until yesterday, I had not ventured farther from my house than the curb. I had stocked up on my way home from work, and supplemented groceries with one delivery.

Toilet paper was unavailable, as was flour: it seems everyone has taken up baking! A younger friend comes around weekly to have me cosign checks for church, and she'd offered to shop for anything I really needed. I thanked her but declined. Then the deluge came, and I had a sudden infestation of big ants- more than I'd ever seen in a house! Aresols are out with my asthma, so I called her and told her I'd reconsidered; would she get me some Borax, please? If she found TP and flour, that would be nice, but not as essential. She arrived with all three, only the TP was a pack of 30 rolls! I laughed till I was out of breath, "well, they'd only let me get one package!" She said.

Until yesterday, my close up interaction was limited to my boss bringing me a Mac so I could work remotely. I tried to get my prescription delivered, but was told I'd have to present my brand new medicare card in person to get my essential inhaler, so I masked up and ventured out. The car was creaky from being unmoved. I had been thinking to get some Easter candy & other things since I was out, but was limited by the behavior of other shoppers.

Been spending way too much time on Facebook, though the delight of facebook concerts by performers I love has been incredible! Anne Lister, Deb Cowan, Gina Forsyth, Sally Rogers doing a song-a-day, and all the other online ways with PayPal "tip jars" to support musicians. Zoom church participation, ballad and sing-around sessions, online interaction has moved more completely to our heart of hearts in many places.

I live in Cleveland, Ohio & watching our governor set the standard for a medical science-informed approach has been pleasantly astonishing. (He's a republican) The first cases in Cleveland were in my zipcode, but so far the only cases have been at several degrees of remove. I consider myslef very lucky, indeed.

Hi, Skarpi,

Thanks for asking! bbc, checking in from Troy, New York. Although things are not as bad (at least, yet) here as they are in & around NYC, as of a couple of days ago, we had nearly 80 confirmed cases & 5 deaths in my county. I have been sheltering alone in my apartment since March 13 & am doing well. I have a good stock of food & supplies & am just trying to stay out of the way. Contact by phone & Internet is invaluable! I’ve been able to get deliveries of food & my 2 sons are willing to help out if I need them. Both of them are able to work from home—David from his computer company & Jay from NYS Taxation, taking tax questions by phone & helping maintain the 24-hour COVID-19 hotline. Surprisingly, my days seem quite full & I am in a good frame of mind, although I’d like to be out, photographing the Spring wildflowers. I find myself living more mindfully, aware of & thankful for each thing in my life. As time passes in this new normal, I’m feeling that good can come from our current situation if we are willing to let it! Be at peace, my friends! Stay safe & well!

Love,

Barbara

The last time we met up with anyone was 13th March for local clogging group (Anne dances despite the need for a hip operation, I play).

Since then we have done a click and collect at Asda once a few days after that, and then I have driven to the post box to send books to the grandchildren and to post off model kits to purchasers 3 times.

Luckily we had plenty of stores in before the crisis started.

We live in a remote location, in a ten acre field with the one of the local farmer's sheep for company, one acre fenced off as garden. So the nice weather has meant that I have been out catching up on the garden jobs which have got a long way behind because of the very wet winter.

We have a public footpath and a permitted footpath running through our land. We have closed the permitted footpath as there were so many new walkers coming through with dogs not on leads.

They say "Oh our dog is well trained, it won't chase the sheep".
My reply is "How do the sheep know that?".

We have a couple of lambs there now and more to come.

At least we have some Zoom sessions to keep us on our toes doing a bit of practice!

I'm hunkered down here in a small town south of Akron, Ohio. I only go out to take the dogs and my son brings up groceries. My wife on the other hand is a registered nurse at a senior care facility. So far they have managed to keep it out of the facility by allowing no visitors and checking the temperature of all employees and visiting Drs before they can enter. They did have a scare 10 days ago when a nurse from a temp agency had no temperature upon entering but had one of 102 5 hours later. My wife, of course, sent her straight home and contacted the agency to find out that nurse had been in a different facility a few days earlier where there were 3 cases of Covid. It was, as I said a scare, but 10 days have passed with no residents or staff showing symptoms. My wife moved into a spare room on site for a week, mostly for my protection, but is back home now.
I am grateful to You-tube, Netflix and Prime for keeping me occupied. Speaking of which, Skarpi, I watched a very good mini-series that was set and filmed in Iceland called "The Valhalla Murders". What a land of stark beauty you live in. I would love to visit some day, but gods know when anybody will be visiting other countries for pleasure again.

Isolated with wife and two cats in our row cottage in a former mining village outside Edinburgh. A couple of minutes walk from open countryside, so not at all claustrophobic. Not used to ordering groceries etc for delivery but it's not working out too badly. Two friends have had the bug - one with multiple serious health issues recovered very quickly, another who seemed marathon-ready has been struigling for breath for three weeks. Connection to the outside world is a bit flaky - no house landline or internet, one recent and one very old phone on congested 3G. Been digging the garden more thoroughly than it's been done for years and doing lots of tidying. Then hopefully do lots of musical instrument practice.

The most visible thing that's gone wrong is litter. Bags of dogshit everywhere and car drivers being typically disgusting about flinging stuff out of their windows and flytipping. The council can't possibly deal with it.

Gosh, Skarpi! A long time since I've seen your name. Mind you, that's a product of neither of us being very regular posters these last few years, rather than anything more sinister.

Hurrah for Iceland! I won't say you're an island of calm at the moment, but you do seem to be being a bit more sensible than some. The last figures I saw for your lot suggested a death rate of ~0.25% for Covid, in line with seasonal flu (a little bit more serious). Yet the world is reacting like Covid is Ebola. Ho hum. If you're willing to do a bit of your own looking, you'll find there's lots of reasons to think that Covid is not as bad as is being made out. If you're vulnerable (or in regular contact with someone that is), take care. If you're not... Quit panicking. There are worse things in the world to worry about.

Yes, I'm still going, folks. To the huge disappointment of Mr Shaw, I daresay. ;-) Curiously enough, Steve, my Mum is 90 tomorrow! Family party called off weeks ago, unsurprisingly, but the Grand Old Girl is still going strong & not especially deaf, so I can phone her & will!

Maryanne

My step-daughter and her husband just delivered me a plentiful supply of toilet rolls because he says I'm full of s**t!!
Doesn't a crisis bring out the best in us :-]
BTW they take very good care of me and it is much appreciated.
My newsagent is delivering all the papers himself as all his paperboys are stuck at home.
If I wasn't so idle I would have loads to do (garden etc) but maybe I'll be glad I left everything for a while if the lockdown forecasts are correct.
Take the best care everybody
Charlie

Our daughter, who is a nurse practitioner, has quarantined my wife and me here in Vermont. She says Vermont is prepared for any virus surge, but of course, everyone is anxious. I am working on a new recording project in my basement. Stay home everyone, stay safe.

Good one, Sandra. Some of the popup YouTube performers haven't figured out how to capture just the song and not the empty room echo behind them. Passing this on.

All is well in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Outside of a local daily walk,and online grocery pick ups, we have been "stay at homes for the past two weeks (spouse, a techie, works from home).
Today, our premier repeated the message "stay the blazes home". Methinks that he was thinking the "F" word.

Gary, that is dangerous, the nanny coming and going. Perhaps she should stay with you during the duration?

Hey all! Been a LONG time since I peeked into Mudcat. Parenting a hyperactive preschooler will do that to you.

So far we are okay here in MD. My trade association switched to all-telework back on March 16th. Sheryl was originally going to to her lab at NIH (*NOT* working on coronavirus) all week but is now working from home 2 days a week.

We have a nanny coming in any weekdays it's just me at home. It's a risk, but I can't do work just in the early AM or late PM like some people since my job involves lots of conference calls and webinars.

Finding most things I need in the nearby Safeway except TP. That I had to show up at Target right at opening to score a pack.

Looking for good concerts to stream and perhaps circles to join. Watching a lot from my friends in the filk community. Only challenge is we are a NO FACEBOOK household, so we're out of luck when performers rely on Facebook Live. Can do just about anything else.

Gary

Doing fine in Silver Spring, Maryland. Have food and paper products for several weeks. (I made a huge pot of beef stew last week to supplement various frozen stuff.)
Will need to look for milk and fresh veggies soon.. but cows always need to be milked, so I hope supplies are steady.

Beginning Spring yard work cutting vines and digging out the lawn mower. The street is pretty quiet, but I see more people walking dogs than usual. It's no problem being able to walk and be outside here.

My wife and I are both well, living on the outer edges of South Croydon in the UK. My wife is on the Sainsbury's vulnerable list so we have one delivery slot per week, and she is completely on top of this!

Stay safe.

Safe and rather contentedly self-isolating. Fortunate to have a young and healthy friend who will, if necessary, go foraging for me if I need supplies.

Thanks for asking, Skarpi, and for starting this thread.
