Everyone's just having to play it by ear

Sorry mate but that isn't acceptable. We have a department of health that should have plans in place for global pandemic scenarios. They may not have every variable understood, but control methods and disaster mitigation should exist already. Playing it by ear means that no one has learnt a thing from previous pandemics, either here or more recently in africa and asia, and that our leadership have been negligent in preparation.

It was never government policy. 

So they need to get their communication sorted. When the PM stands in front of a camera umming, ahhhing, and pointing to other people to answer, and the only actual statement of substance about spread control is 'herd immunity' then they need to take a long hard look at themselves and ask if they are the people capable of leading this crisis. It was embarrassing. Get up there and tell us what you are doing NOW, not that lots of people will die and at some point (2022?) herd immunity will stop the spread.

Have we had any confirmed oneboro cases yet? 

feeling a little 'off' today, probably psychosomatic since I found out that two people on my floor in my office have gone down with it. To be fair I haven't been in the office for 2 weeks though, so hopefully, ok

We need to implement some sort of 'no quoting' quarantine so that we can't get sick off of other people's posts...

Who else is able to and is being directed to work from home soon or already?

In an industry like mine it makes sense. We're on computers all day, there are some quirks to make sure everything runs smoothly but generally we're hearing a lot of companies going into lockdown. Me and my wife both work at different companies in the same industry and we've already had one person who has potentially caught the virus in each place so efforts have been stepped up to make sure things don't shut down entirely.

I'm worried for people who work in non-essential areas of retail who may be forced to go home, I've already heard some won't be paid and the government is being pushed to extend some form of SSP to them. Given the reputation of the universal benefits scheme, I'm really worried some are going to go without.

Got a call from my Ops Director today saying that the client at the offices where we work have advised the workforce to work from home. Not sure where that leaves me and my catering team tomorrow!!!!

I work in supported living supporting vulnerable adults with learning disabilities, no chance of me working from home...
