Linda Kay, that was exactly how they did it at UCLA Migraine Center when I went on Wed. I saw no other patients. And I was not allowed to approach the appointment desk. Instead all appointments have to be made by phone.

I am with you Dawn. I do have a an appointment with my cardiologist next Tuesday and they told me I would have my temperature taken and then put in a room. No one can go in with me unless I need help. I am going alone so no problem with that.

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

I do not wear my mask driving either. I find that it sometimes slips up and causing a vision issue. However, I wear it if I am around anyone or out in public. I have not been into a store since this all began. I do not see myself going into one anytime soon.

I don't wear my mask while driving in the car but I make sure I have it on when I am outside. Took a little drive this morning and our mall had a sign saying that they were open, I will wait util next week to check it out since I know this weekend it will be crowded.

The few times I left the house after staying home 4 weeks, there was little traffic. Now there is more and most are driving like crazy folks again.

I don't wear my mask in the car either. Everyone from underground parking to the doctor's office was wearing a mask when I went to the UCLA Migraine Center for my injections to prevent migraines. I was relieved as we have only had 3 reported cases of the virus where I live and LA has had around 30,000 reported cases. I did not get out of the car during the 2 and 1/2 hour drive there or on the return trip. The drive time was shorter because freeway traffic was much lighter than usual.

Some people wear masks in their car, lots don’t wear them at all. I don’t wear mine in the car but if I have to go inside anywhere, my mask will be on my face. I think that is the safest way to be right now.

Just got back from the UCLA Migraine Center where I got my third round of Botox injections in my head and shoulders to prevent migraines . I had my temperature taken 4 times before I got to the treatment room. No other patients were in the waiting room and one has to call in to make an appointment. I went from home where we have 3 cases of COVID-19 to where they have thousands so was being very careful.

I only watch the news once a day since all it talks about is the cornavirus. This Friday most of VA is reopening. There are parts of VA that are heavy populated that will open at the end of May.

Know your distance. Do you know what 6 ft of distance looks like? Make sure you can eyeball-estimate your safety zone.

This virus is going to be around for a while so we will be keeping our distance for the near future. Good to be able to estimate what 6 ft. looks like.

Learn to love washing your hands! Think about all the wonderful things that your hands do for you. Those hand washing sessions, 20 seconds of scrubbing, gives you that chance to be mindful and appreciate your hands and give them a massage. Follow up the hand washing with a really good hand lotion, so that your skin won't get chapped, chafed or over dry from all the soap and water. Look for a lotion with dimethicone, which leaves a barrier that protects your skin. Put on a good night-time use hand cream to heal skin overnight.

Here is a little exercise to give some perspective. Make a list of at least 10 things that are important to you. You don't have to put them in priority order or anything. When most things have been taken away from us, it helps to remind ourselves of what's really important.

Great news Dawn and I agree with you 100%. I know I am so ready to go back to exercise classes but just do not feel safe about it. I also need to finish my cardio rehab but that is not open yet either though the Wellness Center where the classes are held are now open for exercising again. Most cardio rehab clients are considered fragile and still confined to home until June 12 in Georgia.

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

I wrote a long message to my boss & the CEO of our YMCA about my concerns surrounding returning to work. I miss my pool time and want very much to be back swimming laps and doing water aerobics. HOWEVER, I am very concerned about teaching group swim & water aerobic classes. I teach mostly elderly & children. Both are concerning groups... one in the danger zone for getting sick & the other in the danger zone for carrying every cootie that comes along. There is no way that I can be socially distant when teaching those classes. I wanted to make sure that the bosses know that I love my job and don't want to lose it... but that I am concerned that it is not safe for any of us to start the classes back up. I got a great message back from the CEO stating that he knows my dedication to the Y and that I am not at any risk of losing my job. He will be taking things very slow. I feel better now.

Stay healthy. Stay safe. Stay home when possible. Keep your physical distance and wear your mask. Wash Your hands. Even as businesses, parks, trails and beaches start to open up, combinations of the above actions will still be important.

Georgia is open but seniors are still suppose to stay home until June 12(?). It doesn’t matter, I am pretty much staying home, only going out to things I have to do. My family is still doing my grocery shopping for me as I am not comfortable going to stores. I will go to drive thru for something to eat or pay bills and even go to parking lot church (today was a first for me). If family come by we talk outside and no touching.

My walking with Elouise helps get her outside and me too. We are not together long but it helps our mental sanity a lot.

I talk with daughters, son, granddaughters often and that helps some. Also chatting with close friends make me feel better. Try new things to make me think helps.

Make a plan: list the important people that you need and want to stay in contact with, and determine how you will maintain that contact and maybe even set up a schedule for how often, what days, what time. Will it be by email? Video chat? Text message? Facebook? WhatsApp? Choose your preferred method on communication and plan it now. You and each of the important people on your contact list will have that time together to look forward to and to do a welfare check.

I face timed with my great granddaughter who is almost 5 today and talked with her mother. DGGD was sad that her little sister had pulled down all the pictures she had drawn and put on the wall. We talked about it and ended up laughing.

Learn to love washing your hands! Think about all the wonderful things that your hands do for you. Those hand washing sessions, 20 seconds of scrubbing, gives you that chance to be mindful and appreciate your hands and give them a massage. Follow up the hand washing with a really good hand lotion, so that your skin won't get chapped, chafed or over dry from all the soap and water. Look for a lotion with dimethicone, which leaves a barrier that protects your skin. Put on a good night-time use hand cream to heal skin overnight.

I am still not going out much—finally went to Harvey’s (grocery store) but few people were in there. That is it except for seeing a couple of girlfriends that are not going to stores either. I saw my doctor yesterday but it was by facetime.

Good morning. I have been staying at home during this pandemic except for going to the grocery store. I have been keeping busy with crocheting and other activities. Will be glad when some of the restrictions will be lifted. Here the Dentist office and other professional offices will open on Friday.

I bought a new FitBit and got it all set up and ready to go today. I am looking forward to the warmer temperatures that we are suppose to be getting here starting tomorrow. I am hoping to be able to get out and walk some.

Loved the little YouTube video on making a mask. I don't sew and it is probably a good thing after watching that video. I have been looking up how to crochet the facemask adapters/ear savers. I can't wear a regular face mask due to my oxygen, so I either have to wear ones with ties or get an extension, so therefore that is the reason I am going to try and crochet some. So, I will leave the sewing to the pros. lol

Anyway, having been isolated for over a month so far, it hasn't been as bad as I had expected, although I will be glad to be more independent when this is over. I have been able to keep busy and that helps the time go by.

That was a hoot and reminded me of myself the first time I tried to make a mask. LOL. I just couldn’t get things to go right the first time and ended up watching several different tutorials before I figured out how to do it. LOL

Lainie, I would not go to the hospital either if at all possible. I also get my meds at CVS drive-thru. Today my 3 friends got together and played cards. We are all seniors and have been staying home so felt safe getting together.

I agree that I think May is too soon. I like his original June 10th date and still think that he will keep most of us in. I was shocked today that the Judge ruled in the favor of the inside gun center. I look forward to listening the the Governor at 2pm to hear the latest.

I hope that everyone is well. Stay safe. Stay home when you can. Wear a face mask when you can not. I am holding us all in prayer.

I am going to be going to the grocery store today. The Governor of VA is saying that he will reopen the state early May. May be a little bit too early in my opinion.

Linda Kay, I live in GA too. I had to go out on Friday to pick up a grocery order at Walmart. I was so shocked by how many people were out and about. I have a compromised immune system so I won't be going into any store for any reason. I had my last chemo treatment on January 2nd and I finished my 35th radiation treatment on March 17th. I only go to pick up groceries at Walmart and pick up prescriptions at CVS drive-thru. On Friday, I will be driving 2 hours to Savannah to go to my Gynecologist/Oncologist and my Radiation Oncologist for a check-up. I was suppose to go a couple of weeks ago, but postponed it a couple more weeks. The Gyn/Oncologist's office is in the hospital and the Radiation Oncologist is across the street at the Cancer Center. I'm more afraid of going into the hospital. He's on the second floor, so I'm hoping no one else enters the elevator when I do.

I've had dreams of going grocery shopping in Walmart. Then realizing I shouldn't be there. I usually wake myself up at that point terrified. Luckily, I haven't had any more of those dreams recently.

Even though I live in GA and it is already I got opening up some, I will not go to Walmart or inside any stores. I admit I am going to get my nails done Tuesday morning early and will be in and out before most folks are moving around. I have been going to Pam’s for almost 30 years and I know how cautious and particular she is. That is why I am going to her shop. Yes, I will go to the drive thru at the bank and fast foods but not using any keypads. One of the grands or children will get gas for my car. I am not comfortable going much of anywhere.

I think that is being smart until I see just how things are going to go when people are going about. Staying busy is my lifeline now.

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

Thank you for this thread.

I work at the newest, biggest grocery store in town. I just came off a 9-day stint.

I can tell you that 75% are grateful we are open, working and providing basic (and some not-so-basic) supplies and food for citizens. For the most part, people are obeying the social guidelines. Good for them and for me and my fellow workers.

But - 25% of the customers are rude, in a hurry and will not wait for other shoppers or people - step between me, around me, touch me do not wear masks or maintain distance. They feel entitled. Some are angry - scared - resentful. I get this. Life will never be the same for any of us.

Be kind, courteous, patient. And most importantly, take care of yourselves and each other.

Hugs,
Candace

Yesterday when the auto mechanic brought my friends van back from the shop, I wore my mask and stayed back as much as I could. I only go to the store once a week and follow the guidelines of the store. Although some people do not follow them, There were people who did not follow the arrows on the floor and there was one person who did not wear a mask or gloves. I hope that when he got to the checkout, they told him.
