    Anyone’s work being affected by coronavirus?

    I’m in international transportation so it definitely is. China coming back 10 days later than planned has affected shipments going out, us getting needed paperwork, lots of vessel sailing cancellations.

    We’re waiting to see what happens when China comes back on Monday.

    I was reading just today about the just-in-time delivery being interrupted and supplies running low. It will be interesting to see how long this lasts and the impact on world commerce.

    Yes.

    We have implemented extra patient contact protocols, had extra training, and our infectious disease control team is doing extra training and drills as well.

    One of our young single guys is out sick all week. The joke is he was at the bar with a Chinese girl and he thought she said, "Yee hah!" and that she was really into him, but what she really said was, "Wuhan", where she is from, and now he has coronavirus.

    If you can't laugh at work it makes for a long day.

    Yes, and in a good way: the company now ASKS us to work from home if we have something as little as a weak simple cold and sneeze once.
    That said, I do not want to sound as someone who is superficially happy of a situation that has brought griefs to the families whose loved ones have died because of the virus.

    Still no changes at work. Still a policy that only managers can work from home.

    We would have to be issued laptops to work at home. Only supervisors on up have laptops they can take home.
