I stayed in NYC out of fear of bringing anything home to family.

Same - parents are in a retirement community and they are in their 70s. Staying in NYC for now

I fled to the suburbs for space and to placate my family

Placate? You’re basically a biological torpedo...

Went back to the suburbs. It’s like this tranquil oasis- the grocery stores have lots of food too.

Staying here. Don’t have family nearby and my family is older so better for me to stay put. Also Nyc probably has the best doctors so 🙏🏽

like

Agree, but nyc will definitly have more beds than my small hometown

Evacuated to suburbs with in-laws, fingers crossed. Yes we all did the risk analysis and with everyone’s heath status and daycare closed, it was the best option.
Figured NYC hospitals would be overloaded for people who don’t have the luxury of leaving.

Went back to my parents in the suburbs of another state but quarantining myself from them for two weeks since my last social contact in NYC. Kind of sucks, I should have stayed in NYC and then came down after two weeks of self quarantine were done, given I had my apt to myself there

Was in similar boat but wanted out ASAP in case domestic travel was going to become difficult. Things have escalated so quickly, who knows what things will look like 2 weeks from now. Not insinuating we won’t be able to travel by car, but who the hell even knows.

I fled to our summer home in the woods in PA. Makes it easier to go outside without having to practice social distancing when there are no people around.

like

Also flew back home from NYC over the weekend even though it’s pretty bad where my family lives in the Bay Area

Idk the cases seem to be multiplying in NYC much faster? I assume it’s bc from what I can tell testing was better here than in NYC in initial days. We’re definitely better on response here in the Bay Area with multiple drive through centers, etc.

I barely see anyone outside even walking in neighborhood...and people seem to be taking it a lot more seriously

I left NYC so I can WFH better, not stress about food, and have more space to roam in if it gets to point that I can’t even go on runs. I figured my parents were just as exposed as me so I wouldn’t be bringing them anything new - also they’re fairly young and healthy

No family here so stay in my own apartment 🤷‍♀️

Fled DC to the suburbs where my family still lives to wait this thing out

Stayed in nyc where my whole family is. Mom and grandma bunkered down together and I'm not visiting anyone.

Currently staying here with my girlfriend. We only go outside for a walk daily and to grocery shop 1-2x a week. Neither of us have found it to be too bad.

Also escaped to the suburbs. My sister lives in Denver and her and her fiancé fled to Wyoming thinking it’s the end of the world 🤷🏼‍♂️

Didn’t go home and my parents got corona anyways. Mild case, they’re doing okay but I’m going to keep away. I’m pretty miserable stuck in the city by myself so I might try to escape to a friends beach house since I can’t go home for a few weeks

Hello,

I am a 3rd year insurance defense attorney with product and premise liability experience. Due to long-COVID, I am likely to lose my job.

The plan is to find a government position that would involve more substantive litigation and trial work, then leverage that into the private sector a few years down the line.

Any advice would be appreciated regarding networking, where to start, etc. Thank you.

I have a contingent offer after being laid off in spring due to COVID. Since then the job market has obviously been tough, so a few buddies and I started a start up that has done very well, but we haven’t filed for LLC status yet (keeps pushing back). We have ~10 guys working on various areas. I just received an offer back in my usual industry, and have been truthful in my experiences. Will they ding me in a background check since there’s no 1099 to prove formal employment? FYI I have references

3.5 yrs into sobriety, I’m 25 years old, I have my masters, senior at my firm, passed REG a few weeks ago and have my eyes set on being done with the CPA by Jan 2021 and law school after.

Posting this to say that I had a DWI and a felony drug charge but AA gave me the tools to turn it around. Covid is rampaging our lives but we can still be growing spiritually. Sometimes it’s okay to hand the keys over and let someone else drive. You can and you will get through this.

I work at a small, 3 lawyer firm. One of the lawyers is not barred in the state we practice. Because of this, the managing attorney has been having him draft motions and other legal documents and use my name and bar number and having me file them because I will have to appear in court for the matter. Is this normal? I am not provided time to review the materials before I file them so I end up working longer days because I am nervous to file something using my name and bar number.
