My county in PA is almost surrounded by those with the virus. Last night there was 96 in the state, by noon today there was 133. Along with Berks, where one case was reported, Lackawanna and York counties were added to the list with one and two cases respectively.

Previously the disease had been confirmed in Beaver, Bucks, Chester, Cumberland, Delaware, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia, Pike, Washington, and Wayne counties. There have been 1,187 cases with negative results.

Grocery stores are opening later and devoting the first hour to 1-1/2 hours to the immune depressed and elderly. That's kind of them but Hubby doesn't get up that early and I can't drive so....<sigh> Guess son's girlfriend will be doing the running. He's compromised with heart as is hubby and me with remission and diabetes.

Hello! :) :D

It's amazing how fast the disease is spreading. It's quite scary actually. To think it all started with China. May we all be safe and stay well as much as possible mmmmm ya.  :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose:

Yeah, I am shocked on how fast it has spread too. Scary, but all we can do is pray and take precautions.

Yes it sure is getting closer. I'm in MT, so far we only have 20 cases and thankfully none in our county yet. But here's my daily quote from my FC daily email today, and remember, we are all in this together  :heart:  :heart:  :heart:           
           "When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn."
-- Harriet Beecher Stowe

Just did my PTC and saw in the entertainment section that Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii 5-0, Lost) had caught it, while in NY filming. On his way back to Hawaii he developed a scratchy throat and within a few days, other symptoms appeared. He self quarantined except when he drove to a drive through testing area. He's doing much better now, thank goodness. I really like him.    :thumbsup:  :heart:

I guess everyone is going to get their turn with the virus. It does not discriminate against anyone.

Dang, so sorry for the 1 death, that's one too many :( MT now has 27 cases, still pretty low, and most of those are said to be from people traveling internationally. Which just makes me scratch my head...why would you not cancel those plans, but maybe it just couldn't be helped, I don't know. No deaths here yet.

Oh I pray for that too, I am laid off, even though I only work part time, and unfortunately, cannot draw unemployment yet, so that stimulus money will sure help. Plus I just filed my taxes last week, getting some back there too. I have very few bills so that's quite helpful. I rent a room from my sister, she owns the place, so not lonely, although I'm pretty much a loner anyhow, wouldn't bother me too badly. I'm thankful we have (well) water, heat, food, and can still go outside, as the weather has been nice here.

I live in Minnesota.  Here's the latest:

Wednesday, March 18: The number of reported COVID-19 cases in Minnesota has reached 77, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.

Cases have been reported in 16 counties.  The state has performed 2,761 tests for the virus, according to MDH.

Latest Update in Minnesota:
Total of 235 confirmed cases in 31 Minnesota counties.  One of these is just one county away.
Since the start of the outbreak, 21 patients have been hospitalized in the state.
Currently 12 patients are hospitalized with five in intensive care.

Our  Gov. Tim Walz will self-quarantine for two weeks after learning Monday he'd been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

I've seen lots of people wondering whether the virus hit the USA earlier than we think. I had a wicked flu recently that I'm now wondering if it could have been covid. A couple weeks before that my family took a trip to see the grand canyon and I remember wondering why the vast majority of tourists around us were asians wearing face masks. Now that I check my calendar, that was a couple days before the travel restrictions were announced. :/

After listening to the radio today, I am once again feeling suspicious of the whole thing. Not that there isn't a virus, but relating to how we're responding to the threat in this particular manner. There does seem to be more here than meets the eye. Since China is the instigator here and wants to cripple our economy so that they can be the most prominent power, this would be doing the job proud.

I've heard that this is the first time we've had to resort to closing all small businesses to slow the spread which may be designed to close them all permanently. And when I think about it, I believe that. We've had these kinds of scares before and we didn't shut everything down to combat it. Our economy will have a tough time recovering now even though I believe it will. Pray for Trump if you pray. I pray for him every day.

Has anyone else heard this? The whole is fascinating and horrible at the same time. It makes me terribly confused about the whole thing. Whom do you believe?

Hiya! :) :D

I really hope the virus stop spreading so things can go back to the way they were. We really need to put everything into perspective and work together. I don't want too many people not to make it into 2021. :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose: :heart: :rose:
