We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

Most of our staff are in the indefinite stage now as well. Honestly at this point I don't how I would function going back into the office. It is so nice to roll out of bed and hop on the PC and do IT work all day in my shorts and tshirt. :-)

I think I'd go insane. We've been on a hybrid model of 3 days in office 2 days out of office, then the next week 2 days in office and 3 days out since April. I look forward to my office days, honestly.

Unfortunately, it looks like our cases are growing again. Already at 41,000 today.

I struggled a bit to get used to it a for a couple months, but feels natural now. The biggest thing for me is burning those extra calories from the day - walking a block or two to the car, going up and down stairs, etc. I stayed jogging 4x a week and the pants were still getting tight.

Same there, and reinforces being dumbfounded that the two have gotten so mixed together.

The issue here is compounded. Our public transportation is incurring a half a billion dollar loss on the backs of these decisions. I by no means think individual companies should factor that into their decisions but there's a trickle down, which means we're all going to pay for that half billion dollar public transportation loss at some point. They're not just going to absorb it.

Secondly, a lot of young people here have given up their high monthly rents to move back in with their parents. For Chicago, that means people that once lived and physically worked here are now back home in Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio, so harder to wrangle people back into the downtown Chicago office. So business decisions revolve more around placating staff as opposed to actual risk assessment.

Bars/parties okay. Office, too risky.

It helps that I don't have young kids at home because if I did I would always want to go in lol. Now that I have been home for months and it is going to be extremely difficult if I have to go back in. I work alot more hours I think WFH but I like the fact that I can go do yard work or leave and do stuff without someone watching over me. The only thing I miss at work is talking to people in person but I am over that lol.

Feel that’s a normal response until people start feigning fear in order to achieve it. Then it becomes a disservice.

Yeah, I wear shoes no more than about 16 hours a week now and I really like it. I wear long pants maybe 3 hours a week on average.

Iím actually losing some tax deductions from mileage by not doing any driving so thatís kind of annoying but it is offset by not having to drive anywhere and saving that time. I work for myself so I donít really have any difference with regards to having to deal with coworkers or bosses but I imagine I wouldnít miss it being home. I have no idea how long I will be able to continue working virtually though as itís going to be completely dependent on client insurance companies.

My cousin had a Cancun wedding planned for June, which got canceled. So they moved it to KC - small rehearsal dinner outside, outdoor wedding. She just tested positive the day before her rehearsal dinner.

She is such a sweet kid. Works 3 jobs - including massage therapist. I feel so bad for her. She is the last person who deserves this. They have no money and now they’ve gotten double-fucked on deposits. Also her fiancee is a type 1 diabetic. So far he has no symptoms. No idea how.

I feel so heartsick for her. I guess it could have been much worse if she had tested positive the day after the wedding and a bunch of people got sick. Hopefully there’s no collateral damage now.

Maybe God is trying to tell her something

And he's a type 1, he'll be fine
