    We just found out that all public and private schools are shut down until April 13th state wide. The university my oldest girl goes to is online only now for the rest of the semester. Our company just bought thermal cameras for the dispatcher to check personnel's temperature at the airport before they come offshore. My sister lives near Houston, TX and all the grocery stores in her area are out of even the normal staples. Are people are planning to hibernate for the next month? Honestly, in my 50 yrs on this earth, I have never seen society act like this. I bet next January there will be a population explosion.

    See below

    Through April 24th where my son is.

    Also...

    I know local leave is considered 50 miles for my org.

    https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Re...t-of-defense-on-domestic-travel-restrictions/

    Today, the Deputy Secretary of Defense David L. Norquist approved new travel restrictions for service members, DoD civilians, and their families assigned to DoD installations, facilities and surrounding areas within the United States and its territories. This restriction will halt all domestic travel, including Permanent Change of Station, and Temporary Duty. This restriction will also pause civilian hiring at DoD installations and components for persons who do not reside within the hiring entity's local commuting area.

    Additionally, service members will be authorized local leave only, following Service guidelines. This new guidance is effective March 16 and continues through May 11.

    Similar to other travel guidance regarding COVID-19, travel exceptions may be granted for compelling cases where the travel is mission-essential, for humanitarian reasons, or warranted due to extreme hardship. Approval authority for these exceptions belongs to the Combatant Commander, the Service Secretaries, the Chief Management Officer, or the Director of the Joint Staff, but may be delegated.

    The Department will continue to issue additional guidance with regard to the COVID-19 as conditions warrant. Our goal is to remain ahead of the virus spread so our military force remains effective and ready.

    For more information on the CDC travel restrictions, visit https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/.

    We encourage all DOD personnel to visit https://www.defense.gov/Explore/Spotlight/Coronavirus/for information on staying healthy during the outbreak. The Department will issue follow-on guidance on this directive prior to implementation.

    I’m glad they are closing the schools down. It’s
    The current shutdown of America sucks, but I can understand why they are doing it.

    Tournament. Actually shot 97 but one of them fucked up. Pretty hard not to know if you missed 3 or 4. Who cares though. Wasn’t a money tourney.
