Had two interviews, second was late last week before the COVID stuff kicked in. The recruiter who was very responsive has gone silent, ignoring my last two emails. Can't tell if it's me or the virus.

Give it a rest and (try to) chill for the remainder of this week. Everyone is super preoccupied and distracted from business as usual. I have a similar situation currently and as much as I want to catastrophize the job hunt and hiring climate, I honestly have next to zero ability to focus on normal life. Everybody is going through it. Unless the recruiter gave you specific timing, wait to follow up. Give it maybe two full weeks of this panic and WFH to subside (hopefully subside...) and then reach out if the recruiter doesn’t reach out first.

Hiring freeze

I’m guessing it’s not you. I think this virus is throwing everyone through a loop.
