Weekend Reading: The Big Changes to Our Routine Edition

So... our schools here are closing as of Monday. All events over 250 people are canceled. I'm getting waves of cancelation notifications from my kids' activities. Fun times. In the midst of all of this, my husband and I are trying to work out how we'll handle working from home when we both have a lot of meetings. We've done two days so far with mixed success. (Key lesson: plan out lunchtime better, since the "overflow" meeting room has been the dining room table and that means the other person can't finish their meeting and stroll out and start heating up lunch.) It is going to be interesting to see how we do when we add two restless kids into the mix.

Anyway, I have just a few links for you.

This set of graphics on the South Korean COVID-19 clusters is interesting. Look at Patient 31.

I love the videos circulating of Italians finding a way to have community even during lockdown:

Here's your bunny of the week:
That's all I have this week. I'll try to make a point of reading some non-pandemic content next week so that hopefully I'll have better links to share! Have a good weekend, everyone.

    Thank you.
    I really appreciated your links.

  2. That patient 31 is really something. Fleeing medical care, going to lunch with a friend while having a fever... So much damage done by one inconsiderate person.
