I will add - I'm suppose to be retired! Looks like the fourth wind is about to blow, and we're off again.One of our businesses was issued the letter last week. We can issue the same to anyone we feel is required to complete business. Must say, very unexpected, very appreciated. We are hiring - in a big way. It' s a great feeling to be able to hire in these times.
We still have a trip booked for a conference and a few days relaxations for around 10 days end of July to KUL and HKT. My expectation is we won't be going as while there might be some semblance of returning to something like normal domestically the international resolution of the virus spread will not have been resolved by then.
Yes, for the moment - Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and a few other places in NE canada then NYC then Victoria, CA, Vancouver followed by LA, SG and back to AU. However this trip may go south, as did our trip for next week AU-SG-JP-UK-NYC-JP-AU and another in Jun SG and MY. Cancelling trips this year seems to be the new norm.
It's all very well for government's to be making such recommendations but here in the US there are no masks available to buy from drugstores. Those listed on Amazon on restricted to health care workers. I managed to order some cotton ones off Etsy and am waiting for their arrival. The recommendation of whipping one up at home, how many people actually have sewing machines or even needle and thread in their house these days as we are such a disposable society we normally toss things out rather than repair.Can we qualify this by stating that this is a recommendation in the USA where CV19 is rife and where a lack of testing means that the authorities have little idea of how many are infected and where they are.
Please do not fuel those selling masks at high prices via ebay etc. I know from my daughter that PPE etc has been stolen from her hospital.
NSW?Not sure if this has been shared: one can check incidence of coronavirus cases by postcode:
July. Two cruises out of Athens and another on a big ship out of Italy.
Ordered some yesterday from Ebay then it occurred to me they aren't easy to remove. We have two survivor buffs!One of the bloggers in my feed (Frequent Miler?) suggested making masks out of eye masks from airline amenity kits.
If I have to wear something, I think I would use my Buff (like Survivor).
