Certainly everyone at beerpal is aware. We should have a thread. Let's start with this:

I'm taking precautions, such as washing my hands more thoroughly and watching out for anybody who appears to be ill. However, I am still attending events that haven't been cancelled. I went to a Beer Meetup today, and all was fine. Hey, beer contains alcohol, which kills germs. ;)

Things have really been getting crazy in the last 24 hours. First it was a national emergency, and now my home state of PA has shut down ALL schools. At least my kids should be happy. Apparently they won't need to make up those days either!

I went to BJ's Wholesale Club an hour ago and couldn't believe it. Not a single fruit or vegetable!! Half of the meat shelves were bare too. I was just going for my regular stuff and managed to get all I needed, but geeeez.

Last week I was assigned a night shift task for 2 weeks. I was pissed at first, working 5pm-5am, but it sure does help with the social distancing! I normally work with over 1000 people at the site, but at night I'm stuck with only 3 others at the facility LOL.

I work at a Pharmaceutical plant that's mostly finished with construction but not yet in production. At least it's pretty clean!

I realize that CoronaVirus is a genuine health concern, especially for the many elderly with underlying health issues, in this building. But it all seems to be at a level of near-hysteria.

I work part-time helping the maintenance staff. My main responsibility now is sanitizing and disinfecting the public areas. Today, most social events were cancelled by the manager for the weeks ahead. We are not to allow anyone from outside, except medical staff, personal aides, etc. In this county, there have been NO reports of CoronaVirus...yet.

I'm not worried about myself. I'm young and healthy for my age. I don't want to become a symptom-free carrier that could spread the virus to suseptible people. Really, I think the chance of that happening is VERY LOW at this time.

I'm compelled to keep track of the ongoing situation, in spite of my view that it's overdone. Coronavirus.gov and similar sites are checked by me regularly. Hope a vaccine/treatment/cure will be available SOON!

A bottle share that I had hoped to attend got cancelled. Break, break my heart! However, I understand the organizer's reasoning. With any luck we'll be on for next month. In the meantime, I am supporting my local breweries, which are having curbside pickup.

Good Evening All,

There's a ton of conspiracy theories about many historical events, correct? That does not prove that all conspiracy theories are wrong, or right.

Oswald, as a single gunman, shot Kennedy?

9/11 was committed by Islamic terrorists wielding box cutters, who couldn't even fly a tiny private airplane competently?

Live animals, maybe somewhere in China, caused CoronaVirus to infect the globe?

Suggested possibilities (from many sources; not my own creations):

Oswald was a patsy.

9/11 was a test of diverse weapons technologies on the people of NYC.

COVID-19 is a bio-weapons test on a worldwide population.

Surely no governments or individuals would be evil enough to perpetrate such atrocities on an unsuspecting public !!!

Would they?

L8r,

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE !!!

Lots of people exist in a state of panic right now, even as they are driving.

In the last few days, 1) I almost got run over crossing the street. 2) At a speed limit sign, I slowed down. Car behind swooped around me on the left, swooped around the car in front of me on the right, and turned onto 81 ramp.

They may not even realize what they're doing...

WATCH OUT !!!

It may be that more and more will come to light as investigations proceed...

Remember how the Watergate plumbers trail slowly led to the Oval Office? IMO the Trump Admin is not the culprit, but who is ?!?

Our President and our Governor (NYS) are taking angry shots at each other, especially lately. Civil unrest is not exclusive to New York, but it isn't helping.

Seems that Trump is really doing his best to get the US thru this COVID thing. Seems that Cuomo is really doing his best to get NY thru this COVID thing. They were both agreeing and disagreeing on different issues, but the mutual respect seemed to be there. The virus situation has taken a toll on both leaders. :(

Y'all are from different states and different countries. What's your view?

I sorta segued into a 3 hr 40 minute online tour of Manhattan, from four years ago this month. I haven't been to Manhattan since 1982, and I don't miss it. I stood in the entryway of Electric Lady Studios in the mid-seventies. I told this to a nearby Greenwich Village barkeep; he asked Who is Jimi Hendrix ?!? :D

Somehow, I really am interested in watching the long Manhattan video. ;)

Here's NYS history of the CoronaVirus, with no personal editorial, as presented by CNBC.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/09/08/new-york-gov-cuomo-says-trump-is-actively-trying-to-kill-new-york-city.html

What's the story in YOUR State or Country ???
