Covid-19 and you

35 posts in this topic

Its been about 50 days since we have been on lockdown and it seems cabin fever has set in for a lot of folks.  Starting to see a lot of folks easing up on restrictions and not being so worried.

Golf courses are still open, so that is nice.  Unfortunately the weather still thinks its early March rather than late April.  Its interesting that the rules are set up by county commissioners in conjunction with the county health department.  For some reason, some courses can't sell beer or food.  Some counties won't let more than 1 person in a cart, even if you drive to the course together.  That is just the tip of the iceberg of some of the lunacy you see.  I'll say this, seeing this whole thing play out, it has really helped to reinforce my views on limited government behavior, rules, laws, etc.

I'm surprised you cannot play MTG over a video conference connection. Probably just because i don't know the game i guess.

I went yesterday.  They clean the carts really well.  They put pool noodles in the hole around the flag sticks, so nobody touches the sticks.  Outside of that, golf is outside and limited to 4 people gathering anyway.  Clubhouses are either closed or extremely limited, depending on the county.  Unfortunately, mother nature thinks its March, not end of April.

I tried playing over skype. More hassle than it's worth. My buddy kept walking away, helping wife and kids. Which is awesome and all good, just kind of a drag when I have nothing to do but wait. He'd be gone for 15-20 mins, we'd forget where we were, kind of a clusterf. You gotta set it up right.

We've been talking about getting together for a real game soon. Just be smart and clean about it. I dunno.

I worked remotely after my relocation (mandatory requirement) and didn't like it all that much.  I found I was much more productive actually going in to the office even if there weren't others there.  There were too many distractions at home, and I didn't feel like I ever really got away from work even in off hours.  So now I go in along with a small handful of others, and we take all the precautions such as socially distancing and sanitizing surfaces.  I prefer having two separate environments:  work and home.

I have been working from home for years.  It is a mindset otherwise you risk feeling like you are at work all the time.  I try to separate my work space from my place space and that seems to help.

Friends and family are going good.  Ohio has been slowly reopening.  Its a mixed bag.  Some folks aren't doing anything different and continuing life as normal.  Others are still holing up and not doing much.  I personally feel like the situation is going to be fluid for quite some time and we need to learn to live with it.  But that's just me.

So school is about to start and for those of us with kids how are you handling it? 

My two will be staying home and doing a virtual school.  I just don't see how they can make the schools safe enough to keep it out.  It will get into the schools and spread.  I give schools til Labor Day.
