Looks like my organization finally decided this COVID-19 virus is worse than anyone wants to think about and they needed to be more cautious.
Yes, as of tomorrow, we will report to work only in the case of emergency situations. Other than these, we are to work from home.
Sure. I have no problem with that.
I only have one meeting on Friday that I wanted very badly to attend. If we cannot make that meeting, many things will be delayed. Will it go ahead remotely?
Other than this meeting; I am looking forward to having some home-office time, having no meetings in my life, having no unnecessary distraction at work, and staying away from office stress. I also see this as the best opportunity for me to learn a software I was meaning to learn for years.
This evening, just in case, I did some grocery shopping. I stocked some frozen veggies and this feels good. Also fresh cabbage and carrot, as they usually stay fresh longer than any other veggies I know. Since my freezer and pantry are packed with food, I feel secure.
So, here is to Day 0 of COVID-19 home isolation/quarantine.
