Online shoppers: are you taking any precautions with the cardboard boxes or plastic bags you’re getting? I read that coronavirus can be viable on cardboard for 24 hrs and polyurethane for a few days 😷

Honestly yeah, I'm leaving the boxes for at least 24 hours before I open them and then disinfecting what's inside.

I use to work in a sterile cel culture lab. Spray everything with alcohol religiously before you bring it in your “safe” environment goes a long way to peace of mind

Did you make your own alcohol spray or is an alcohol spray sold in stores?

looking for advice- need to travel to NJ from a high-risk state for a personal matter. It should only take 2 days to resolve and I will be traveling directly to my property and staying there until the issue is fixed, I do not want to stay the full 14 days as I have work and family members to take care of back home. What do you advise? For clarity, I don’t have Covid and don’t frequently travel (even locally) and only doing so out of necessity

Elon rumored to leave the Bay Area and move to Nevada/Texas. Covid has likely decimated the NYC economy for the short term, with many companies and employees questioning if they’ll ever go back. What do we think will be the new hot housing market post-Covid? Will NYC/SF/LA recover, or will people move to cheaper COL? Will the net result be 0 change?

For those that have been working with health systems on COVID testing, what have the isolation / quarantine protocols been after someone tests positive? The current CDC recommendations don't seem to match my current understanding. Current CDC recommendation: 10 days have passed since you had a positive test (asymptomatic). If symptomatic, 10 days since onset of symptoms, 24 hours since fever (no meds), and symptoms are "improving" Elsewhere: 14 days, or 10 days with 2 neg tests 24 hours apart.

My manager used to say “COVID is nothing, it’s just like flu and eventually we are all going to get it” and “we are healthy and young and we won’t get affected”... she thought I was overreacting back in March when I was wearing a mask in the office. Today she told everyone that her son became a close contact of a confirmed case when the kids had a party... and now she’s scared and anxious and worried waiting for her son’s test result... what can I say... Sorry not sorry?

Trump talking about he hasn’t felt this way in 20 years. That’s because he hasn’t been eating fast food for the past couple days. The more he keep up with this I’m so healthy rhetoric and don’t be afraid of COVID, the more he proves he put on a hoax the past few days.

What’s your take on lonely boys? Chatting with a dude—hot, fit, great job. But made multiple references to being lonely cause he’s living alone, cause his friends have left the city cause of COVID. Super open and vulnerable with me before even going on a first date. Not hating, just don’t know what to make of the situation.

I know we are living in the COVID Era and things may be different but as a self-taught designer that’s been employed for the last 8 years here in the city, I’d like to be able to make myself attractive to the advertising world. I usually operate on the fringes of the design community and I don’t know all the cool kids (outside of interning at 3st). What can I do besides have a great portfolio?

A good friend had to cancel her wedding this year cause covid but with the virus relatively under control in NYC, they decided to move ahead with a socially distanced, small wedding ceremony of just 20 friends (in a tent outdoors) and only 2-4 ppl per table. Masks required. I am living with my parents right now and debating if I should go or not. The couple was really understanding and did say they would not be offended if I chose not to go. Thoughts?

Tomorrow is Monday and I’m feeling gloomy. I didn’t used to feel this way before Covid, and always looked forward to traveling to the client site and joining my team. I’m working 12-14 hours a day now, and some weekends. I hate the client we’re working with. I associate my apartment with work and stress, instead of relaxation, and constantly feel like I need to get out. All this is causing me to hate work. Anyone else experiencing this? Any advice on how to manage the situation?
