I think the fact that it was nice outside, saturday and nowhere else to go is why you saw a lot of runners

I haven't taken my kids to a playground in two weeks. It's a place of high contagion. Come on.
Yesterday they closed the playground/park behind my home (Brookhaven, Delco). Yet, though signs were posted everywhere & the whole place was yellow-taped, STILL a group of kids rode their bikes right under the tapes & continued to hang out there. I guess the rules don't apply to THEM.

I will be home for 4 straight days starting on Friday and I have to stack up on candy, nachos and mexican food LOL. No way in hell can I eat less during this time. Comfort food is needed at this time

Yeah, appetite isn't what it used to be and I'm also not exercising as much. I bailed out of Philadelphia for family property in semi-rural Maryland (low density, far from the maddening crowd, surrounded by lots of open lands). Long walks with dogs is great but it's not the same as anything more intense.

It's day 10 of being a refugee and it's all very weird. It seems like we've dropped a gazillion tons of dynamite right into the middle of our economy and I'm still not quite sure if it was worth it or if it was a massive overreaction. Got warning emails from our CEO about possible layoffs and while I'm reasonably secure in my role due to current projects, if things don't change soon regarding the shutdowns America is heading for a nasty world of economic hurt that could be a lot worse than the virus itself.

Has anyone felt any symptoms or nervous that they might have it? I am trying so hard to leave New York for either Philadelphia or Chicago, but I am under the weather and a little worse each day, day 4 of my quarantine (whether I am sick or not).

You have the tell-tale symptoms?

Hit or miss, which makes it harder to differentiate. No appetite or taste, very achy, no cough (had one, it went away), no fever, but very nauseous the past day.
My hunch is a stomach bug or bad cold, also with bad timing, but either way I don't want to leave the house due my exposure and exposure to others.
