A very readable piece from an epidemiologist, which I got from a physician and relative... Hold the Line

That kinda backs up something that I heard from my son in law who is a Suffolk County officer and a boat owner. He had heard that Marina's may still be closed for the same reason they have closed parks,playgrounds etc. They are afraid of the 4-6 guys piling into a boat to go fishing or boat owners taking friends out for a cruise. It would be too hard to enforce. They don't want to spend their day chasing people down. This is just something he heard and isn't written in stone. Maybe a one person one boat rule?

Good thing I do a lot of my work during tax season at home, life is not too different. The guy I work with also works from home (I log into his software when I'm not there), so I'm trying to limit myself to 2 days at his house, mostly to meet clients who need a face-to-face. We already do a lot by email and snail mail. Funny thing is it now takes me only about 20 minutes longer to get there from where I used to live, even though it is an extra 60 miles. It is almost all interstate, far less traffic and traffic lights! I've even got a few out of state clients.

So, what are you all doing with your extra time at home? With spring here, maybe our yards will get more attention than usual. We have a few new plants and trees that need planting. Like the rest of you, my boat will need attention soon, too.

I've been self-isolating for nearly a month now. Even though I had this year's flu shot and shouldn't have got the flu, nevertheless I got what seemed like the flu about 4 weeks ago. Slight temperature, headaches, joint aches, sweats, sneezing, etc. It never became severe and I'm over it now. I never got tested for Coronavirus because, at it's onset, I don't think there even was an available test for it. I'm still isolating myself because I don't know if it was coronavirus or something else, so it seems the sensible thing to do.

Anyway, I've discovered a minor problem that I never contemplated. My hair became shaggy, and no barbershops are open here, so, last night I got out my electric shears (that I used to trim my dog's fur), a pair of scissors and a hand mirror and set to work. I can report that some of my hair is definitely shorter than it was, so I guess the operation was a qualified success, but if it had been done by a professional barber, I wouldn't have paid him.

The good thing is it will grow back! When we were kids, my mom, bless her heart, got the idea to save money giving us haircuts. She borrowed her brother's shears, guess he was cutting my cousin's hair. Being the youngest at that time I was the first pick. before she was done, I had a very short crew cut, not quite military buzz but close. I was also her last pick! And it did grow back out. Just wish it still would. I'm mostly solar-powered now!

Good try, Steve... I've experienced the challenge of working with a mirror--you move left, and the image moves right! In college, I made some money cutting Navy ROTC cadets' hair with attachments on my shaver (they needed to stay white-walled below the hat line, but I couldn't do my own.

As a condo association president, I'm promoting isolation and figuring out how some association business will proceed... Meanwhile, without gardening or lawn care to do myself, I have "stuff" from earlier in life to be sorted out and disposed of, having procrastinated for many years. (I thought about attending a Procrastinators' Anonymous meeting this week, but............ ) Then there's my boat, shrink-wrapped on the hard, but the marina situation is problematic.

I applaud all isolation--it's critical to breaking the network of transmission and "flattening the curve" so the healthcare system isn't overwhelmed. If that makes the curve longer rather than higher, so be it--you or I or somebody else might have access to an ICU bed if we need it.

Hi David, while it might seem like overkill and paranoia, all our phones and devices can run a video phone app, whether FaceTime, Duo, Zoom.us, Skype or slack.
While it might be clunky at first people get used to it quickly.
May I suggest that instead of face to face across a desk, face to face with a screen between.
All we need is one ...

We also use Zoom to face-time with my grand kids and my wife who is in the now closed school system is using WebEx to face time with her class kids.

Zoom and FaceTime have proven to be sanity savers as we can connect with our loved ones, social communities and organizations. We all need to be careful and focused so to stay healthy and safe. That said, I can't wait to get launched and enjoy outdoors!!!

Not that you're there, but recreational boating is now banned in Maryland. I guess they don't trust social distancing on board, which is probably logical. (Do you help somebody get on or off? Does everyone stay apart on board? Can they enforce a rule that allows single-handing? Do they allow solo boating but close marinas? Etc.)

My Maryland marina is closed. You can't practice social distancing when you're walking past others on narrow docks. It's dangerous for someone to clean and maintain the restrooms and showers, to maintain the pumpout, they don't want to work on your boat, and they started thinking about all the "what ifs." What if there's a fire, or a boat starts to sink, or the marina's plumbing breaks, or the marina's electric system fails, or a boater gets sick or is hurt while on his boat? How do they help you and respond without risking themselves? Moreover, the Bay is closed to recreational boating, so all you can do is sit on your boat at the dock. They'll re-open in a month or two, and if they don't, we can do overdue home repairs. This won't last forever.

Interesting: in Connecticut boat yards and marinas are considered "essential" businesses . . .

On the news yesterday in British Columbia, Canada boaters/cottage goers were advised not to visit due to limited availability of medical facilities in smaller towns
