One form of exercise per day, all non essential business closed down. Can’t visit friends and family. Can only be with people within your household. Strange times. What’s it like where you guys are?   

I live on LI so right now it’s only non-essential business’ that are closed but I wouldn’t be surprised if we went on lockdown by the end of the week. Personally speaking I can agree with going with all non essential business being closed until this subsided but the lockdown stuff seems really excessive to me.

Yeah I also agree about the non essential businesses even though personally that effects us massively. 
 

It is what it is....we went on a semi lockdown and people just took the piss to be fair. Thats why it’s now became the full blown lockdown. 
 

Im lucky we still get to take our boys out once a day as being contained with two toddlers 24/7 will make you go crazy lol

@TheChad how’s it there mate? 

Ouch, total lockdown. I hope the time passes quickly for you.

Seems you can pretty much just say "what was it like in the UK a week ago?" and get our status. The only thing we were early with was the panic-buying. As of midday yesterday, our rules are:

The following facilities are restricted from opening from midday local time 23 March 2020:

  • pubs, registered and licensed clubs (excluding bottle shops attached to these venues), hotels (excluding accommodation)
  • gyms and indoor sporting venues
  • cinemas, entertainment venues, casinos and night clubs
  • restaurants and cafes will be restricted to takeaway and/or home delivery
  • religious gatherings, places of worship or funerals (in enclosed spaces and other than very small groups and where the 1 person per 4 square metre rule applies)

Our schools are still open, but there are mixed messages between the state and federal governments.

Personally, I've been at home for the last two weeks. Haven't talked to another human being in person since last Thursday. I'm doing okay but some of my friends are a bit freaked out. Many hours of video games will be played. Many hours of Netflix will be watched. And if I can concentrate enough, it'll be time to read a few books too.

Yes that does seem more or less exactly how we were just last week. Things are changing daily here though, when the schools closed that was the start of it really. 
 

Yeah I assume Netflix will get millions of new subscribers now! Stay safe mate and keep us updated.

You too. I live alone so I can just play video games all day and sort of wait for it all to blow over. I can't imagine what it would be like having a family to take care of as well.

One day this will all just be "that strange time" we remember with something roughly the opposite of nostalgia.

True mate although the isolation may get tougher as time goes on. It’s good to have networks and communities to fall back on like here. If anyone needs anything or talk about anything this is a good place to share.
