Retirees can just keep your responses to yourself. 

I'm at the office. So is my staff. This could change.

I'm a teacher in the public schools, so I am home (but I'm doing a lot more manual labor than I normally do at school - those honey-do's never seem to decrease). My wife is a retired educator so she's home also. We've been isolated since a trip to the grocery store on Saturday evening.

I'm blessed to not be in the position of having to make a choice between work and social isolation, as of now. We are passing on organized church services and I have put my 3-days a week local group golf games on hold for now. Its a choice that I feel is right for me but I won't condemn those who feel that they can't do likewise.

My hope and prayer is that a short time from now all of this can be put behind us and that death rates are low.

Working from home, as is my norm since returning from the UK

Two Biz trips cancelled so far

Probably won't venture out of the Knoxvegas area for a couple more weeks
I do have to go to either Dayton, OH or Warner Robins, GA sometime next month for to get a new military retiree ID card, getting old has its requirements

Retirees may not have to worry about work, but we're told that we're gonna DIE if we leave our homes!!! Irritatin' thing is, I'm in better physical shape than a lot of these young whippersnappers who won't get off of my lawn!

We’re a military contractor, so it’ll have to get apocalyptic before we shut down. But we’re being encouraged to stay home if we feel the least bit sick.

Tell me about it.  After 9/11 we weren't allowed on base the rest of the week.  My military boss lived in the same area so we met at his house on his lanai by his pool.  Not bad working conditions

While I don't know you personally, Granny, I've read enough from you to confidently say that I think you are a kind and caring person. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you!

I am working from home, we were sent home Monday because an employee tested positive late Friday.  Now the entire Agency is home as of today though (JSC, KSC, etc).

Working at work, mostly.

Where I work now we sell health and wellness products, mostly through online orders.  Part of our line is hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray and wipes... So, yeah... Been a busy, busy week.
