Have you cleaned out your closet since the pandemic started? I feel like there’s a lot of unnecessary stuff in there now....and I am thinking minimalist for post-COVID couture. What are your classic go-to’s?
While I understand the risk involved, am I right in saying that travel to India from the US is not banned and only requires a negative COVID test ? Anyone who travelled this week ? Indian passport holder and need to travel urgently.
I get too distracted by reddit, youtube and google to make WFH a viable solution. I’m also struggling to focus on work when I see client tasks as inconsequential in the face of COVID. What do?
My district has a COVID-19 Compliance Tipline. While I don’t have need of it currently, it is good to know it is there. Does your district have this?
Does anyone know how people who already filed their AOS (i-485) will be affected by this? I'm vaccinated but my AOS was filed in March along with medical examination and I'm concerned this will delay the process even more :( Will we get RFEs after October 1st? https://www.natlawreview.com/article/cdc-issues-new-covid-19-vaccination-requirements-green-card-applicants
What’s etiquette for going to a happy hour (social distanced) for laid off coworkers? Was due to covid. My wife is going to one tomorrow and was wondering do you get a card or gift card?

I’m the event planner for CLSA at my law school and was wondering if anybody is willing to be on a panel regarding ethics during the coronavirus regarding the way confidential information is sent and received, how you guys use zoom for depositions or any ethical challenges you’ve come across during this time. Thank you!

Can COVID be transmitted through water?
I feel terrible for seniors/elderly trying to get Covid vaccine appts online. I am splitting my time living between Florida and Illinois and signing up for the vaccine in either state is a nightmare for people who are not very computer savvy. I have been helping seniors who had problems figuring it out. If you have the time, reach out and help others. I have seen immense relief and a weight lifted when people get an appointment. Plus, helping others makes you feel good! 💪
Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding. She’s just moving forward like we aren’t in a pandemic and it’s becoming exhausting trying to be supportive and excited for her when it feels like she’s living in a fantasy world. She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.
Would you do lunch for a first-time date? It’s a date and he said he’d be getting a Covid test the day before, but I’m not sure I’m comfortable with the risk. Thoughts?

Heard this comparison - Trump’s negligence on coronavirus is like a teacher encouraging students to go to the bathroom while an active shooter’s on campus
My roommate and best friend refuses to get the covid vaccine whenever it’s available because she believes vaccines gave her sister autism. We’re reaching a point of tension where I can’t bring anything up with her that isn’t topical because she’s going through a lot and becomes easily triggered by anything foreign to her. I can’t move out right now. And it also makes me sad that she’s so close minded about the world. Any advice for coexisting/coping? I predict winter will be tough. TIA...♥️
If you request a salary that’s too high does the hirer usually tell you it’s too high and offer you the salary they had in mind or just ghost you and move on to the next candidate?

Hey could use some honest opinions on this because I’m still in shock. I was preparing to give in my resignation + 2 weeks from EY on Monday to jump ship to Deloitte. I accepted the offer from Deloitte on Friday, and I just got hit with a bomb today that my brother has cancer and we have no idea what stage it’s at. Should I just rescind my acceptance from Deloitte? I don’t know how it would be taken if I start at a new firm and immediately need substantial flexibility and time off.

The points guy always gave me the creeps
Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.
