Tomorrow I resume my temporary, at home, Google Classroom, second grade teaching gig. I forgot how good I had it during the day :~)

Personally, I'm going fanatical about knocking off the bugs if there is a possibility that I've touched a surface that was previously touched by someone who may have the virus. That means, strictly following the guidelines for how long the virus is viable on particular surfaces, and always decontaminating anything that we need to touch earlier than that, for more immediate use; using soap and water, or an alcohol product.

 

That means, for example, taking the whole shopping thing extremely seriously - every item brought home is considered to be coated with 'wet paint', so to speak.

I must admit that as far as COVID-19 is regarded, I'm mostly an objectivist :)

Some statistics updated daily and the curves we must flatten:

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

 Seems that many are destined to find out the same, as even the Sporting Events Downunder that many from the USA were apparently watching in the absence of local sports, have now been cancelled too, with even Sydney pretty well quarantined now as well, although with schools still open, but parents advised to keep their kids at home if they are able to do so safely.

 It has also been suggested that our Internet speeds will soon drop back to 1990 speeds due to massive congestion with many now isolated at home.

 That should also include the bags used for deliveries from the Supermarket,  even when they are left at the front door .

You should wash your hands after unpacking,  and putting away the bags for return with the next delivery. 

 

Paper bags may be preferable to plastic bags because the virus population declines twice as fast on the former.

Agreed. They should never phased out paper bags which were often quite strong. Perhaps they did that originally due to environmental groups complaining about the cutting down of trees ?

However, we didn't have as much packaged frozen food back then.

The " string bags" used years ago were also quite cheap and ideal for most fruit and Vegetables.
