Continue with updates on the spread of the virus, countries responses and how it is impacting on your lives in terms if work arrangements, social gatherings etc

Rather than double/triple/quadrulpe post, just edit your last post if no one has replied since. If you’re a repeat offender, your posts will likely end up getting merged anyway

Are other people starting to not go out?

I'm trying to let it not affect my life as much, still going on nights out and cinema etc but I am being cautious about it all.

my parents are/were going to travel to France this Easter but that's looking less likely by the day so we'll be keeping a close eye on what they're doing.
I wasn't going anyway but was looking forward to a week to myself.
main hope is that my grandma doesn't get it anyhow as she's over 80 with a pre-existing condition. if she does I'll probably never see her in person again as she's in Australia. sad.gif

Iím trying to avoid going anywhere on public transport on the weekends, especially Central/busier parts. Iím debating whether or not to go to the cinema, I can get there in walking distance, but it seems more and more risky every day and Iíve seen advice against it. Iím certainly keeping using the gym though as exercise is still important (and I am paying for it!)

I'm literally just going about my normal life, if I get it I get it and I want to enjoy being able to go out and do stuff whilst I still can.

My parents both work for the NHS though so they're feeling the stress.

Iím carrying on as normal at present until Iím told not to do something. So I am still going to work and swimming. I may go to the cinema if I fancy it but thereís not exactly much on. I am trying to avoid supermarkets because of morons rather than the virus but I will go to my local Spar if I need to. My mum has asked me not to visit until the schools are closed so I will have to FaceTime my parents and just drop off a present and a card outside the house for Motherís Day.

Iíve booked to go to the cinema this afternoon (as Chez says, Iíve already paid upfront so until Cineworld are refunding me for a month of my membership, Iím gonna keep making use laugh.gif) and Iíve got a couple of nights out at the end of this month/start of next month that I already have tickets for, and if they still go ahead Iím still gonna go

Iíve still gotta turn up for work every day and that involves using public transport, so Iím not planning to scrap my leisure time

I’m living my life as usual at the moment, although conscious that things are easily changing on a daily basis. I’m still going into work and I usually work from home at least once a week anyway. I’m currently at uni for one day a week but they’ve now moved to online teaching, so that’s the major difference I’ve experienced so far even if there were only two weeks left anyway.

I’m conscious about buying tickets for stuff though. There’s an event next Saturday which I want to go to but I’m aware it could be cancelled at the drop of a hat so putting off buying ticket for now. Otherwise I’d be happy to go.

British journalism is truly a joke. I don't understand why we are the only country with this approach to dealing with it.

I've got to come into contact with so many people at work everyday, so if I'm gonna get it it'll be there I feel laugh.gif For that reason I'm not gonna let it stop me doing things, but my friends, boyfriend etc. all seem to be panicking way more so if we do anything social usually someone will drive and we'll go to their house or stay at mine because people don't want to do things.

Still haven't been properly outside in almost two months now argh. Some of the things around the city (like malls) are starting to re-open and the push in China seems to be that the worst of the virus is over. But there's still no update from about when schools will re-open and it could still be a while yet before that happens, if there is a school to go back to.

From what I can tell they're being INCREDIBLY stringent with anyone arriving back into the country to ensure it doesn't start up again, but there's still a little way to go before normal life resumes. So this is how I'd estimate European life looks in early June if the peak is in May.

Went out this morning but it was the first day I actually felt very anxious about going outside. I came into close proximity with a couple who were coughing a lot and it got me a bit paranoid. Iíve come home now but Iím not sure I want to go back out again at the moment. huh.gif
