Any word if they are letting the new hires start class tomorrow or did they give them the United treatment.

That’s good to hear, at least they have seniority numbers.

They sent emails and the CP called to tell us in person that the classes after this week were postponed and that we’d be next in line should classes resume. A nice gesture, I thought, and done early enough as to not impact current employment. Such is life in the time of Wuhan.

Not sure where you getting your info but you should stick with facts instead of your ‘doomsday prepper’ characters...
BS. Not sure where YOU are getting YOUR info, but you’re delusional.

I don’t have any family in the medical field, and as of today I personally know 15 people who’ve tested positive in the last 3 days across four states.

I’m just an average Joe, and there are 300+ million like me in our country. Add to that the newsworthy people coming out and there is no way your number is anything but delusional.

Even POTUS has flipped on this, just watch the news clips (you may have to change the channel though to find the conflicting ones).

While one can quibble about effects, CV is clearly here and growing rapidly, not at “52 new cases total” on ANY day.

This is not really persuasive...as you may have been told back in third grade when the rest of us were taught how to reason, debate and not name-call. Were you out that year, or did you just leave school before that?

If name calling is a valid tactic for our Dear Leader, why is it not appropriate for his followers?

I don't know anybody yet, although I'm sure that will change eventually. I know people all over the world.

May be a situation where ultimately everyone will get either the bug or the vaccine, whichever comes first.

The province where this started - where Wuhan is - Hubei province, has a population of 59 million people including 11 million in Wuhan city itself. Total cases identified to date in Hubei - the epicenter of the outbreak - is 67,800 and in all of China 80,800. That means if you lived in that province your chance of being diagnosed with COVID-19 was one in 870 and in the rest of China even less.

They are already starting to withdraw restrictions there:

And those are perfectly transparent numbers. I am sure.
