I have been practicing social distancing and telecommuting for about 6 weeks now. I have learned new skills and tried virtual programs I had never used before to continue work with my colleagues and participate in virtual meetings via Zoom, Microscoft Teams, and Amazon Chime. I have not gone to visit my parents that are elderly in Orlando to not put them in risk. I do miss them, but we have been able to keep in touch via calls and Zoom/Facetime. These are uncertain times… it’s hard to plan large meetings and events not knowing what things will be like in the next 6 months or even year. It seems some people are taking it seriously and others brushing it off / thinking it’s all an overreaction – that social distancing is doing more harm than good to people’s lives/economy. I wish everyone could be on the same page so we can stay safe and hopefully overcome this sooner than later.
