    Foodservice delivery driver. Our center has cut us from 5 days to 4 due to restaurants cutting down so much on their orders. I took this week off, but I'll be back next week, and the feeling of dread gets worse by the day.

    OP Physical Therapist for a big hospital chain. Currently still reporting to work and either see a condensed patient caseload, (post-op joint replacements, LBP causing people to miss work, acute injuries, athletes, etc) or enter the float pool, where you are reassigned to another (PT) job at the hospital.

    Trying to be thankful to keep working but I am not psyched to work at the hospital, with known positive patients there.

    I have no idea how we're still 'working' but I'm very fortunate that we are.....hopefully it will continue.

    Working as Project controller out at an Exxon refinery. Finally got moved off-site this week but still working 40 HRs from our office building near Houston. The project has cut down significantly and is planning on gradually decreasing to a complete halt. Harris county put the shelter in place order out effective tonight. I was given a little laminated card today saying that I was essential personnel even though I could easily do the job from home since we have much less work going on. So dumb. I have a 4 month old so going to convince them tomorrow that I don’t need to be there.

    I’ve worked from home for 6 years now, but my gf, who is an in office manager at the same company is working from home now too. Tight in our place but so fucking thrilled when they sent everyone home last week.

    We are in EdTech so it’s actually very busy, which is great because it keeps me from being full on anxiety reading the shut awful news all day

    I went to work today. Fleet manager for a local govt. I have 2 assistants and we’re taking turns working. Our/their assistants(secretaries) are at home. I’ve reduced the daily 40 mechanics to 20 and they’re in shifts so the 12(early) never see the late (8 guys).

    I’d love to shut down completely but cities need fire, police, utilities, and fuel to operate.

    Technical Support at what you may call a “Call Center” specifically for our service. We’re considered essential / life saving medical service. We have a good 95% of employees working from home. A few employees still coming into office so a manager (me) needs to be there.

    We also manufacture and ship/receive equipment so our warehouse is of course working but they extended hours to limit the number of employees working together. They all wear protective gear. Received equipment is quarantined for 3 days.

    Tax attorney that has worked from home for the last 8 years with probably 40 percent travel to clients/DC office.

    I don't travel anymore, which is a change, but my daily routine has not changed at all when I WFH. The only change is having to deal with everyone else making a big deal about working from home on every. fucking. call.

    Dude in the office's wife is a nurse at the hospital and found out last night that one of her patients last week was COVID positive. So he's now at home, and some of the other guys he works with the most, but seems like we're all on a counter now.

    I work in the transportation industry. NY isn't shutting us down or the bottom will fall out. Most of the work I do is not essential but being that construction sites aren't shutting down im still working. I have the luxury of sitting in my pickup truck and practicing social distancing. Matter of fact I've mastered it decades ago.

    Edit I need to find Lysol. Not to clean my truck. I use 91% Rubbing alcohol. I pour it on baby wipes and keep soap and hand sanitizer with me. But I want Lysol so the next fucker that leans on my truck when I roll my window down I can blast him in the face with it.

    Sounds like we had one guy that quit/was let go because he didn’t want to come in and was not sick.

    I don’t completely blame him except he was a bit of a C word and not easy to work with in general.

    GM two Chick-fil-A's. Running drive thru only at both, so I'm only working about 35, normally work 45-50. Only working at one of our stores right now because we siloed each one to keep them both from getting shut down in case of an infection. Also working about 5x more operationally than I typically would.

    Called my doctor today to make sure it was okay to go home this weekend and nurse said due to the fact I travel for work and had a coughing fit Monday night I need to be tested and quarantined.
