What is up with possibly infected with Coronavirus Trump shaking everybody’s hand at the press conference today?


My husband and I had planned to go to the States for 2 nights with the kids (we’re Canadian) over the March break. This morning we decided that we should cancel the trip. We got refunded for the AirBnB but we had a couple packages that we had shipped to the US to avoid duty that we needed to go pick up. So we popped down today and got them.

At the border to enter the US we were only asked where we were going, we explained and were sent on our way.

At the border to Canada an hour later we asked if we had any flu symptoms and if we had travelled to China or Europe in the last 14 days. After paying duty for our goods we were sent on our way.

Two very different approaches.

So a few local school districts have closed their physical campuses for two weeks. Most have spring break in that time. Colorado reported our first death from Covid19.

I implemented higher level cleaning in my massage studio, car (since I do in home) and in my home.

Age wise, my roomies and I are like a three generation house, an almost 70 yo, me, at 51, and a 23 yo. All unrelated. We are treating this seriously, as the employed ones are forward facing, and the older one won’t stay home. He says the grocery is almost empty, but expecting a truck tomorrow.

I’m inventorying every scrap of food, herbs, spices and medicine I have tomorrow.
I’m planning to have two weeks of “good enough.”
I wanted to plant microgreens anyway, so I’ll start those over the next couple days.

I haven't noticed any panic buying locally. but that could have changed in the past 24 hours. This morning, the company I work asked all non essential employees to work from home for the next two and a half weeks.

Yes. I should have enough groceries. But I'm not confined to the house. I can go to the store if necessary. Will items be sold out ? Yes, and I'll adapt. I'll see what is in stock that is mostly healthy.

My advice to those who are worried that they can't eat healthy the next two weeks is to do the best they can with what they have. Try not to stress eat. I know that wont be easy because I even I had a stressful day that caused some emotional eating. I'll do better tomorrow. so will you !

No, I am not sure what to buy for a healthy 2 to 3 weeks.

My son has had a transplant so we both have to avoid crowded places, public transit etc. He gets sick, he will die...

I see videos of panic buyers emptying the shelves... It makes me think that when I do go shopping, there will not be anything left to buy.

I do have a wee veggie plot, but it is not time for growing - snow is forecast in next few days

I'm stocked with enough food and supplies for three weeks, with a special emphasis on comfort/healing foods - chicken soup, ginger ale. Stocked up on cough/cold/allergy meds.

Will nag DH to call his doctor to renew his albuterol prescription NOW before he actually gets sick. Now, if I could just keep him from hanging out in his crowded local bar...

The question was what would we eat for two weeks.
Looking at what I’ve got stashed, I’d say beans, tomatoes, pumpkin, some frozen fruit and greens, lots of tea (so.much.tea), onions, garlic and a bunch of spices.
And pancakes, I have lots of flour and leavening, and flax to sub as eggs.
Honestly, I can see myself ordering delivery twice in that time, something large-ish to be three-four meals.
I also have lots of hydration packets, so drinks would be interesting.

Hmm. Perhaps a few potatoes would not be amiss.

@WOUBBIE

WOUBBIE, brings up a very good point.

Our medical system is already overworked and under staffed. If the people who are diagnosed with coronavirus were to double each day for even two weeks, there wouldn't be enough hospital beds or staff to care for them all. Hospitals would be overwhelmed very quickly.

My company will decide in the next couple of days when or if employees will WFH for a two week quarantine period. I can WFH, if needed. Our Seattle office employees have been told to WFH until the end of the month.

I'm 63 and have health issues.... high bp, thyroid issue and I have issues with my lungs. I am already high risk in catching the flu and I take precautions every year because of that. I limit leaving my home, I already use pick-up grocery shopping options and online shopping options, if I am forced to leave my sanctuary I do wear a surgical mask and latex gloves. I was told by my doctor at John Hopkins for me to get a severe case of the flu it would be a life or death issue and I would be in a hospital .... my chances of surviving this would be slim to none.... so I am spending more time at home which is fine with me and while I usually buy my groceries only once a month I did get a few extras this month to insure I'll be ok... I had a doctor's check-up this week and he gave me a pneumonia booster shot and told me to take whatever precautions I can that it IS going to be here and it WILL spread like wildfire.... so look I gotta do what I feel is best for me!

I'm sure not going to sit here and wait for the government to look out for me cause THAT isn't going to happen they can't take care of them selves!!!!!! smh

So I have to say I'm anxious and a little afraid.

I work at a major grocery store as a person who gives out samples of food. We are no longer serving samples to the public.

Today was absolutely insane up there. It is amazing how the bottled water, hand sanitizer and soap, bleach, and toilet paper are flying off the shelves. People are stocking up to prepare in case there is a quarantine in our area. I hope there is no need for it. I truly do.

I think a lot of folks are misunderstanding what public health officials are getting at. The main goal right now is to keep our health system from getting impossibly overwhelmed. We accomplish that by slowing down the inevitable spread of the disease.

It's going to spread. We just need to make sure that it doesn't ramp up so quickly that there are literally not enough ventilators or hospital beds for people who need them.

So wash your hands, avoid crowds, and stay home if you're sick. I have at least 3 people in my immediate family to worry about - one is 94, one has asthma, and the third is prone to serious bronchitis with upper respiratory infections. If they need to go to the ER I want to know that there's care available for them.

We've always kept a well stocked medicine cabinet and pantry.
So we made sure we'd be ok if we were quarantined for a month or so by picking up some of our favorites.

My biggest concern is that people are focusing on germ control , but not food if their children are suddenly home for lunch everyday. Panicked crowds worry me.

The news has reported that the city of Boston has cancelled the St Patrick's Day parade. Ireland cancelled parades across the entire country.

While I do believe we need to be mindful, I think this is getting blown out of proportion. There really is no need to panic. If you have elderly relatives or neighbors, check in on them to make sure they have what they need, in case they can't make it to the grocery store to buy supplies.

So far, the only panic buying I've been seeing is for Purell, bleach and alcohol wipes.

Nope. not looking at my 401k for a few days. I'll be depressed if I do.

So far where I live people aren’t freaking out about it. I don’t understand and haven’t since the start of this whole thing how they plan to stop the virus spreading. I flew into an International airport in late January when this whole thing was kicking off and they didn’t ask anyone if they’d been to Wuhan until they got to customs. People could have touched a millions things before they got to that point... Also what about the people that get it and only have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, they would be spreading the virus and have no idea.

Anyways, we have a good amount of canned staples (beans tomatoes etc.) and the freezer in full of stuff too. We’d be ok. Plus I could always order fresh produce to be delivered to the house if I had to.

Our finances would take a big hit though, if my hubby and I aren’t working we aren’t making money and we couldn’t afford to do that for too long.

Repeating this - Take a deep breath, wash your hands, and eat your veggies. We'll be okay.

And adding - Warm water, soap and sing happy birthday while you are washing to ensure you scrub long enough to kill any germs. I work with kids (helping to toilet in some cases) and do this at least 20x a day.

One of my lovely neighbors is a woman in her early seventies who is generous to a fault. She works part time at one nursing home and volunteers at another nursing home (she does laundry for them ). When she told me that, I almost fell off my chair. Even her daughter (a nurse) is worried for her. My imagination went into high gear. Heaven forbid someone gets the virus, she may be handling the contaminated linen until the facility determines the nursing home resident has it. Yikes.

I don't know which is more troubling. People who panic, or people who don't worry enough.

@KRAFTYKRAFT

My cousins are going on a two week tour of Eastern Europe this weekend. I checked their tour website. They are still a go. The tours to Italy have been cancelled for March.

Some cruises to effected countries have been cancelled. If you're going on a cruise to say, the Caribbean, you'll be fine. I'd say a person should be more concerned about getting a norovirus (stomach bug) on a cruise rather than the coronavirus.

Just from the various news articles I've read, cruise ships do seem to be something of a floating petri dish.

To add to your very good habits of making sure you regularly wash your hands, I'm going to add taking a walk on deck regularly to get some fresh air. Cruise ships, like airplanes, circulate stale air through their ventilation systems. so, you want to get out of your cabin as often as you can.

Enjoy your cruise !

Believe it or not my family is going on a cruise in theee weeks- I am trying not to think about it and focus on the fun vacation aspect. That said - I will take sanitizer (and maybe my own soap) and of course I wash my hands often. I am utilizing everything I did to get through the flu season

So, some travel is being cancelled. I am back to remind people to wash your hands lol and remind you that the flu is a bigger deal, and I don't even think the flu is that scary. Season wide, 95 people have died from the flu in Minnesota and many of those have pre-existing conditions and/or are elderly. To date, only 12 people in all of the USA have died from the Coronavirus and 11 of those were residents of a Washington State care facility.

Take a deep breath, wash your hands, and eat your veggies. We'll be okay.

Yes, I practice standard universal precautions. I try to listen to my body and take care of myself if I feel I am starting to come down with a cold. I have plenty of food on hand and other supplies so I am not concerned should I or another family member contracts the COVID-19. So far our state has not had any cases.

If my employer asked me to work from home for two weeks, I could do it. I'd go a little stir crazy not being able to get outside to take a walk. I'd be okay for food.

I started preparing 3 weeks ago. I stocked up on meds, plenty of canned goods, rice, paper goods, disinfectant cleaning supplies, alcohol, and water. I carry a tiny spray bottle of alcohol in my purse with some hand sanitizer wipes. I avoid crowds and shop off hours. IMO, being prepared is just being proactive. You don't have to panic if you have what you need just in case.

Honestly, I am not worried about the coronavirus. We are much more likely to get the flu and I don't get a flu shot, if that tells you anything. There were more murders in Minneapolis last year than flu deaths.

Thus said, I practise good hygiene by washing my hands. I have enough food on hand too. Being prepared is good and not just because there *might* be a coronavirus outbreak.

For two weeks, we would be ok, have lots of frozen veggies, canned veggies, beans in bags and canned. Flour and dry yeast, canned milk, to bake bread. TP and tissues. As long as power stays on, it would be ok. Think of those that still have to go to work, or deliver gasoline. Or the ones that deliver groceries. There would be disruptions.

"My question for Sparkers is this,"If you couldn't go to the grocery store, do you have enough food to make meals for two weeks ?" Two weeks is the incubation period for the coronavirus.

The usual.
Between the pantry and the freezer, we are good with meat, fruit, and vegetables.
I have a variety of dry goods/canned goods also.
We would be good for the two weeks.

Interesting question. Yes, I have enough food here for more than a couple weeks (thanks to the chest freezer and pantry). But, I would have to get creative and fix some meals we don't usually have. I think breakfast would be the most difficult as the milk, eggs, and such would not last more than a few days. I guess we would be eating some non-traditional breakfasts.

All of a sudden, I have the urge to go grocery shopping. emoticon

I think we've all been watching the news and know about the coronavirus. At first, it seemed to only effect China, but it is now making its way across the globe.

A friend of mine has a brother in Milan. He says that his brother is having a hard time buying groceries. Store shelves have been cleared and no deliveries are being made in many cities.

My question for Sparkers is this,"If you couldn't go to the grocery store, do you have enough food to make meals for two weeks ?" Two weeks is the incubation period for the coronavirus.

So, if you were stuck at home for two weeks, what would you eat ?

If I couldn't get to the store, I do have cans of tuna, sardines, beans, tomatoes, rice, quinoa, soup and pasta for staples. For fresh veggies, I'd barely make it a week before running out.
