Is the fear of the coronavirus overblown? Planning on going to bali, kuala lumpur, and singapore in the summer. Read that a vaccine wont be available until 2021. Am i just asking for it? Thoughts?

They are not overblown and people say otherwise fail to realize the implications of a zoontonic virus.

I just wouldn’t travel to China. Those places seem fine

Those places are fine

We lived in HK at the tail end of the SARS thing and we didn’t panic but it was definitely was an anxious time. 😷 Whether it’s a good idea depends on your risk tolerance but also on your underlying health. If you do book, check the cancellation policy, get travel insurance and/or book it on your Amex as it may get cancelled last minute. Personally I’d go for it as I seem to have a knack for surviving high risk travel. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Can probably get reduced rates if tourism more broadly takes a hit in Asia 😬

There’s no confirmed cases in Indonesia yet. Although some say, that’s because they lack the testing equipment.

I wouldn’t go. That’s the perfect time for the epidemic to have spread fully to those areas. Singapore already has a bunch of cases. I’m sure the others do too, with their number of Chinese visitors, they just haven’t been confirmed yet.

Random Question - I live with a roommate for the last 2 years now. We have become really good friends and she is like a sister to me. We used to hangout and do a lot of fun stuff before COVID. When I make a plan to do something during COVID, I always include her to do or go somewhere. Of late, when she makes plans, she goes on her own or if she goes with her friends (whom I know), she would not invite me. I feel left out and sad because of it. I think I should not feel that way as she can

I just found out that the person I was with last year is with someone new. We were separated because of distance/covid. It just makes me sad because I feel that covid took away the opportunity for us to be together and further develop the connection that we had. It was unique and hard to find. So much has changed. I’ll get over it and if we aren’t going to be together then I am sure it’s for the best. Just feeling this heaviness today.

It’s that time of year for firms to consider attorney promotions. How has covid affected that? If someone’s hours or origination credit is lower, do you give some leeway and still consider them for promotion? Or is it “business is business” & you apply the same rules as in normal years? I’m curious how other firms are handling.
