Well, I was an essential worker til a few days ago  :sleep:

I expect my boss is counting the days til I can come back to work, as she has to cover my shifts in the meantime.

Oh, and since she started working in the lab for the first time in years, we now have plexiglass everywhere and a security guard up front screening people and forcing purell before entering the store.

Imagine that.  :rolleyes: Can't wait to quit that place.

Yeah, she might as well have printed out a big sign saying "Only looking after No.1"

That's rotten.

BTW Zoupa, how is one declared cured and no longer contagious, do you know?

I worked from home, but now my employer has shut down its European operations including administration for two weeks, so I only dial in once a day for an hour to check on production issues and to assign work to my Indian colleagues.

No option for nothing has changed, business as usual and still going to work normally.

Job ended Sunday, traversing back to Alaska through the socialist hellhole known as Canada as we speak.

Wondering when work will start up again as pretty much all tv/film is on hold.

Working from home, full speed ahead. At least till Easter, though probably longer.

Oh wow.

How are you doing, Zoupa?

I am working from home until further notice like the rest of my company group's offices. Expectation is around three months.

Working from home except when dad calls me up to run the odd print job. It's actually around this time I take off for holiday anyway. Except now I work while only wearing pants half the time and devise ingenious ways to keep my guys from strangling each other. Yeah and I started reading Thucydides last night. :mellow:

Non-essential, working from home. Officially due to last until after Easter and if the numbers keep reasonable, I suspect they will try to open up some schools or work places again.

I quit my job last week, as I have accepted a bigger job elsewhere, which is really awkward in terms of timing, but it all seems to be working out well enough.
