    Re: How is your job being affected right now?

    I work in the Digital Innovation group for a large health system on the west coast, we provide tools to the system (and other systems) that enable online scheduling for primary care and express care clinics. Our current workload is converting a majority of the providers to support our Virtual Care offerings which is experiencing a huge uptick which taxes existing framework and support systems, so nonetheless we are pretty busy. I also have an office at home with a complete work station setup so working from home is not a problem. I was however in the midst of interviewing for a new position at another company in their Digital Innovation group (Banking) that is currently on hold, my wife also was interviewing for a new job and was told she had it but the offer wouldn't be extended until this thing settles down (It's in the public transportation sector)

    So yes currently busy, but who knows what happens with the other position and who knows what the down stream affect has on future budgeting for my current position.

    Waiting to see what this bill will include, before deciding whether or not to lay off my employees.

    Our law office is still open, but some people are working remotely and we are generally not allowing third parties, including clients, access to the office. Legal services are defined as "essential," so we are still working, but it does affect what we can do. No trials, court hearings or depositions are going being conducted.
    Our local court house is closed, but I gained access yesterday to file a lawsuit--the problem is my client needs to have a court hearing held upon a motion for a temporary restraining order and an injunction, but we can't get a hearing date at the moment. At the request of a different client yesterday I did meet with my client at its manufacturing facility to discuss a matter and watch a laser make the parts at issue, but I was probably sanitary enough to perform surgery during that visit-I would have had greater health concerns going to our local Kroger's.
    My 27 year old son has moved in with us as all classes at the University of Tennessee School of Law are now exclusively online. His wife will soon also be living with us after she completes a visit to her parents.

    I've been teaching online now for a full week. It was rocky at first figuring out how to navigate with Zoom meetings, but that seems easy after a week. Still need to get my feet wet recording online lectures, so that's next. Overall, I feel very lucky to have a job right now.

    I teach fully online already, and I'm still "working" from home otherwise. My occasional subbing has gone away, and that paid surprisingly well, but I did my taxes yesterday, and I'm getting a good refund, so I won't be hurting for a while.

    As more work from home, Walmart sees rise in sales of tops, not bottoms

    With more and more people working from home, Walmart has picked up on an interesting trend: Tops have seen an increase in sales while bottoms haven't.

    The reason? Teleworking.

    That's what Walmart's executive vice president of corporate affairs, Dan Bartlett, told Yahoo Finance on Thursday. Later, a spokesman for the company told CNN the same thing.

    As officials try to control the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of white collar workers — normally bound by dress codes and expectations in the office — are trading business trousers for sweat pants and stiff blazers for that hoodie they would only ever allow their family, roommates or dog to see.

    But there's that matter of video conferencing where you still want to present a presentable self to your colleagues. And so, many of us are donning business attire on top and casual clothing from the waist down.

    I do network capacity engineering for an ISP. My job is somewhat busier because we are pitching in to help the operations teams. Most people are working from home but don't have enough monitors to replicate what would be in an operations center. So more eyes on fewer screens.

    Lot of QA fallacies in this environment, tools at home are lacking

    Re: How is your job being affected right now?

    I have a few things going on right now. Since I had to close my company a few years ago, I've gone back to the courier company I drove for back in '05, but that has been slow lately with a good portion of their customers being shut down. I have four published novels, but sales aren't producing what could be called full time income yet, although I've sold more ebooks in the last few days, a trend I expect to continue for the moment. I've been doing Amazon delivery routes to try to supplement the decreasing income from the courier work. I was doing Lyft as well, but there's no way in hell I'm going to haul passengers around at the moment.

    It's my wife I'm really concerned about. She works in health care, so her work hasn't slacked off one bit, so as long as neither of us gets sick, we're ok for income until this blows over, but every time she goes to work I have this nagging worry that she's going to get exposed and bring it home. We could afford for me to get sick more than we could her right now, but we're hoping we both stay healthy until this runs its course.
