Coronavirus - impacting you yet?

Yes, affected work and the wife’s work (they’ve all been sent home)

 

Now we just found out an employee at her firm has it.

Blimey Mick, that's a bit close to home. Total isolation for you and your wife now then. That's a bugger.

No David, she was in another branch, down in Bordeaux, but she did talk to people, who talked to people who talked to my wife.

 

We are on our own out here anyway, as you know I’m not working, she’s out of the office till further notice, so we’ll see.

Norway is on lockdown for non essential things.  Not forced, as I hear France is but the whole place is very quiet.

 

I have been working.  The kids school has closed.  The missus is home working, as are most people.  My missus was in Munich working, she has been in isolation since they made the ruling.  14 days is up tomorrow, she has no symptoms.  She also travelled to Sweden with work last week, they only enforced the isolation after she got back so as far as I am aware after tomorrow she can get out and about for essential things.

 

Pretty civilised here in the shops.  The shelves are a bit bare but you can generally get what you need.  I don’t live in the centre of Oslo though, that might be a different story.

 

So yes, you can tell something isnt quite right but there is a long way to go yet.

 

What’s with all the pictures of the UK military moving about?  Is BJ declaring martial law?

Good question, bit of both really, you can work, with the right paperwork but it’s awkward.

Clients aren’t too keen to see you.

Employee/s less than thrilled, especially with vulnerable family members...

The government are covering my employee’s wages for the moment so working as a team would be fraud.

 

We will do the two weeks and reexamine it, if I’m not dead.
