All my North U jobs this spring have cancelled. Gatherings of generally around 50.

"Such change demands on our part a serious and responsible recognition not only of the kind of world we may be leaving to our children, but also to the millions of people living under a system which has overlooked them" - Pope Francis September 2015

My company cancelled our technical conference last week. We have 400 engineers and scientists that meet and present our best projects. We were charged for the food when we canceled. We all look forward to the technical conference. Very disappointing, but it doesn't make sense to bring in people from across the northeast and great lakes with the chance to expose them to the virus.

This is not the flu.

We also cancelled all travel outside of the US and all event attendance.

Its cold and flu season, but high risk people should be very careful.

Luckily children seem to be resistant to the virus.

My company cancelled all flight travel to avoid airport crowds and traveling exposures. If you canít drive to your business travel you canít go.

We also prohibited any meetings with more than 20 people in attendance on site to avoid people in close proximity.

We also cancelled creating or attending any conferences....on-site or off-site....by our company or any other groups/companies.

Just about an hour ago we got an email to test our VPNs for the home connections.

My guess is we will be working from home next week.

Agreed, much fewer cases of Covid-19 than the common flu. smile1

Resilient kids arenít in the denominator of those affected with Covid-19....so the fatality rate appears high.....but it is skewed since older people are affected which makes it appear higher than it really is as compared to the common flu.
