This whole CoronaVirus situation is ever changing, and the only thing that is reliable is to take each day at a time.
Thursday morning, we were given a brief update by our operations manager (who was covering for our Logistics Manager that morning) on the latest as far as our company is concerned.
Things changed again two days later, and I am off work for a couple weeks, at a minimum. My company is paying us for the two weeks we know we are going to be off, after that, it’s still a day by day / week by week situation. While I am not surprised by the closer, I also have the gut feeling that it will be longer than two weeks.
Not to mention the next couple weeks are supposed to be cold and rainy, which means I will be stay in, not going for walks, and knitting a lot, as well as watching the TV shows I have on DVD. I have so much sock yarn that I am needing to get knit up, and socks to finish. I am going to try to see how many pairs of socks I can finish before I go back to work.
At this point I am fortunate, even though I am off, I will have an extra two weeks paid, as well as still having a job to go back to, many others are not as fortunate. I am also the kind of person who is OK staying home for a while, since I enjoy knitting and watching TV shows, I can occupy myself. I will be glad to go back to work when it is all over. There will be work to be done, there is a new set that will need to be set still, freight to come in and be worked, checking the food for expired stuff and all that jazz.
Even though work itself has slowed down the past three months, the rest of my life outside of work has still been pretty busy, and it will be nice to take a couple weeks, stay home (not because I am sick) and just slow down a bit.
