    Think about all the extra use the house is getting now....We are in it 24/7. Much more water use... flushing etc....all equals a plumbers dream.

    Oh, guess I missed that. I thought it was just Boston but I can see now that Quincy has closed until May 1st. I just can’t keep up anymore.

    I just got an email from my doctor’s office. They are rescheduling many appointments. For those appointments that are kept they are asking you to wait in your car until they call you to come in. They’ve also temporarily closed the urgent care in our city.

    The Governors of any state that has issued restrictions would have issued an Executive Order detailing every kind of business that is deemed to be an essential service. Our Governor here in CT has already issued several amendments to his Order and clarifications. My State Representative sent a PDF of the Order to me, but they are easily available online if you google your state.

    The orders are not being followed and/or they are taking a wide berth on the interpretation because they do not outline specific occupations. For example: the dollar store sells some food items, so they are staying open even though they are not specifically a grocery store.

    CT's Order was very specific and businesses can call the state if they are not sure, and clarifications are issued if necessary. Can't speak about Orders in other states.

    NJ closed most of the beaches and boardwalks. The cases, especially near NY are rapidly growing. Only 3 in our county and 2 of them work here but do not live here. My son is wearing more protective gear now. He stays away from us. Leaves his boots in the garage and all his clothes in his room. He only uses his bathroom.

    I just got back from the grocery store and it kinda freaked me out to be honest with you. There were MANY people in masks today....it made an uncomfortable situation even more so....I guess its now about time that I will wear mine next time as well
