Hows the Covid situation in the city? I'm heading back to Atlanta tomorrow after 2 weeks - wondering how crazy it is.

Well our traffic problem is no more! I think only ab 150 confirmed here rn (I’m sure much more realistically). I’ve got friends who are nurses warning us to stay away from hospitals as it’s going around at a lot of them. Most people, including myself, are only going out to get essentials at drug and groceries stores. Avoiding bars, gym etc..

Feel it’s worth noting that while it’s only 150 confirmed cases, that’s because of the lapse in testing. Doctors are turning away young people with flu like symptoms unless they’re in serious condition. I know multiple people in the office across from us that got sick with the “flu” and quarantined. There are likely thousands, if not tens of thousands of cases in Atlanta right now.

My gym is shut - Lifetime Fitness. People seem to be practicing social distancing and staying indoors except for the essential trips. However seems like the calm before the storm!!

I’d imagine similar to other cities (minus SF and NYC). Businesses are closing and more people seem to be working from home. People seem to be stocking up as stores are bare. Heard the beltline was packed last weekend though.

How are you traveling OP? I’m in NY too and thinking of going back to ATL but can’t decide if I should and if I do, should I take a flight or drive.

Took a flight A1. It's empty but lots of flights still operating

My friend and her boyfriend are flying down to Atlanta today from NYC to stay with her parents. (Their NYC apartment was getting a little small for them.)

How was the flight C3?

Thoughts? Both me and my spouse want him to stay home with the kids. Childcare has been so unreliable since covid started & we’re at a breaking point with it. I earn plenty for us to be able to have him stay home, but then there’s this overarching fear and anxiety that I can’t shake, even though we’re doing great financially and don’t need his income. I feel like I’ll never feel like it’s enough no matter how much I earn/save and it’s holding us back from making a decision we’d all benefit from.
