Schools in WA & OR are closed, the SON lodge is closed, no gatherings of 50 or more people.  Most businesses are finding ways for people to work from home.  I'm glad I already do almost all my classes via Skype, so I can continue working!  Scott's home, too, on medical leave because he's scheduled for rotator cuff surgery at the end of April.  We're hoping that he still will be able to get that done!  As soon as the World Health Organization declared this a pandemic, people started to panic buy cleaning wipes, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, face masks, bread, milk, flour, soup, cases of bottled water, ice cream, and other things deemed necessary to survive.  Erin took the store pics on the day of the declaration.  I went out today, the day of the Health Department ruling above, and there was no bread, no cleaning supplies, some canned fruits & veggies, no soup, and no toilet paper.  All the restaurants are drive-through or take-out only, or delivery.
