Outbreak – Day 6 Work Form Home – Day 10 Isolation

Matthew 0 Comments

With Montreal calling in an extended State of Emergency, and with the numbers of unemployed reaching new heights as businesses close, many people are turning tot he government and banks for relief.  But how much will the relief help those in need?  As I found out earlier today, when my friends called their bank (RBC) to try and get mortgage and credit card relief for their personal accounts and business accounts.  What they found out was shocking.  Now unlike most blogs on the web these days, instead of forcing you through 17 pages of back story forcing you to click the Next Page button and view a million adds before I explain why it was shocking (God I hate those sites) I will explain it right here and now.…

I was hoping to get to this earlier today, but with work and the fact it’s Friday, the time sort of got away from me.  I read over my last few articles, and I realized that the tone wasn’t very positive.  Can you blame me?  It’s hard to stay positive when the world is in peril.  The facts are not pleasant… Today I watched as the number of reported cases soared by ~30,000 world wide, over 5,000 of those were in the United States to our south, which almost surpassed the new cases of Italy! (US: 5,594, Italy: 5,986).  I try to keep a pleasant and positive demeanor but, how? …

The Outbreak – Day 4 of work from home – Day 6 of isolation

It’s strange stepping out onto my friends back porch… the only noise you hear are the distant transports and the Canada Geese flying above… other than that, complete silence.  Inside, my friends wife is keeping up to date on all the Covid 19 news videos on YouTube, and catching up on articles posted throughout the day.  Almost 900 confirmed cases in Canada, 257 of which are in Ontario.  Although it does seem to be slowing down a little in Canada compared to predictions, it’s still not over.  Militaries around the world are prepping for the worst.  There are rumors of the possibility of Martial Law and other military actions starting to brew on the net.…

Yesterday the Prime Minister of Canada announced that no one should leave their home unless absolutely necessary.  So we are now on official lock-down. We broke our volunteer lock down the other day just to make sure we had enough food as it looks like this is gonna be a lot longer than 2 weeks.  Most stuff was stocked, as long as you were looking for fresh goods… toilet paper, most pasta, canned goods, mac & cheese, those were all gone… But we got what we needed.

Last week, before I left Montreal, my work sent out a notice that they were going to test the feasibility of working from home by sending the IT workers home for 2 weeks starting Monday, that was last Thursday.…
