The governor put further restrictions into place last night, effectively shutting down all non-essential businesses. We can still work from home, but the real question is how long will we have work to do? I guess that remains to be seen. We’re all busy this week, so at least that’s something.

In related news, I’ve been arguing a bit with Jake this week about the social distancing stuff. So, in order to set a good example, I’ve decided to stop volunteering at the shelter until I either get and recover from coronavirus or the danger has passed. I can’t tell you how disappointed I am to have to do this. But, it was going to happen sooner or later anyway–I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a shelter in place directive soon. I did inquire about other things I might be able to do to help the shelter out, so I hope there is something else I can do to help in the interim. I know they are looking for foster homes for the animals. Right now is not a great time for me to do that for a number of reasons, but you never know when circumstances might change. It is definitely something I’d like to do someday and if I can figure out a way to do it during this mess, all the better. But, if you are able to foster an animal, please consider doing so.
