Can't buy a roll of toilet paper around here....nor dried beans, rice, or peanut butter.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

@AnitaAnne talking about hospital rooms. Here last fall 2 hospitals (Ohio Valley Medical Center. and East Ohio Regional Hosp) (actually one big business owned by someone in Ca. went belly up. As far as I know all the medical equipment is still in them as they were looking for someone to buy them.
Both are in really good shape as they have been remodeled numerous times.

They are just sitting there doing nothing.

Ohio Valley Medical Center (OVMC), founded in 1890 as City Hospital, was a 200-bed health care facility located in the heart of downtown Wheeling, West Virginia. While the building was remodeled and greatly expanded throughout the years, the architecture dates back to the Ohio Valley General Hospital School of Nursing that was established on the campus of OVGH in 1892 as the first school of nursing

and

East Ohio Regional Hospital (EORH), founded in 1906 as Martins Ferry Hospital by local physician Dr. R.H. Wilson, EORH was a 140-bed health care facility located in downtown Martins Ferry, Ohio. Having begun its tradition of healing with only 30 beds and five physicians, EORH flourished with the expansion of services and the addition of new health care facilities and centers.

Did our grocery shopping tonight instead of tomorrow and our food coop was out of TP, canned tomatoes, all types of bread...and bulk lentils Shows you what a silly hippy dippy town we live in.

My passport is expiring so I went to a Walgreens pharmacy to get new photos taken to renew. While I was waiting for the pictures, a 50 something guy came in panicked, freaked out on the clerk for being out of rubbing alcohol, and then decided hed buy vodka to make Gus hand sanitizer instead, even though the clerk calmly told him thats not the same thing and wouldnt work Clerk and I had a good laugh about how irrational people are being. I dont envy him his job over the next few weeks but appreciated that he seemed to be in good spirits.

They might be put back into service. Some places may use hotels, but providing staff will still be a big issue. Plus hotels do not have the supplemental oxygen that will be needed.

What happens when the nurses and physicians get sick and need to quarantine?

It's a bit weird isn't it? I had a sore throat yesterday, and so did my son. I generally cough a little in the morning, as I loosen some phlegm, then I'm fine the rest of the day. But I've never been so conscious of it. My parents (both in the 70s) arrived Thursday to celebrate my son's 17th birthday, and the first thing I said to them, from about 30 feet away, is "I have a sore throat! No hugs!". I feel fine today, but I've been drinking a ton of pine needle tea, and that has often been a life-saver for me in the past.

@SueC suggested a while ago we share our immune-boosting tips. Here's mine!

Pine needle tea was an Indigenous drink shared with some of the French who came to the new world. It's best made from white pine needles (google it, but basically, long needles that are in bunches of five). Extremely high in vitamin C. It kept them from getting scurvy when they had no access to fruit and vegetables in Canadian winters. You boil the needles and let them sit, preferably overnight. Makes a lovely reddish-tinted tea that can be drank hot or cold. As soon as I feel the beginnings of a cold, I drink several cups a day, and it has often saved me from getting really sick. Symptoms disappear, and I recover. And if I do get sick, it does alleviate symptoms. Just in case anyone out there is looking for a natural immune boost and has access to white pine!

Well our schools will shut down at end of day Wednesday and be closed until mid April. Spent the day putting grades in around prepping for online class transition as an in the event and at 5pm we were told no school and since other districts in the state aren't ready for implementing online we are all just closing for essentially a month. Regular teachers paid as usual. Those that are paid by the day that had long terms - well I can't say. I'm losing pay the entire time. Fortunate that husband is still working but who knows. My check makes the ends meet and takes care of the extras. I have hay to get through April and into May, supplements as well. I'll get the dogs and cat enough, fill two cans for the chickens and as long as the chickens lay we will not starve. I'll also do my hurricane prep early. Maybe in the month off I can gentle one of the beef cows and convince her to let us have enough for coffee and the growing boy to drink. It will be interesting to see what develops with the schools, we had already started offering distance learning for those that preferred to stay home. It meant not so much increase in demand for classrooms as communities grow and schools can't keep up.

Nursing homes are on lock down. Schools are still open. Colleges are taking an extra week for break.

Town was still busy. Restaurants full. Bands at the bars.

The one case in the state reportedly has been able to recover at home.

Hope it holds.
