The usual pests/bugs: ants, water bugs, spiders, etc...

I almost have a nice view at my delivery Costco in Salt Lake City.
I am essential and I have a letter to prove it

My company is essential however I have been working from home for the past 3 weeks and will continue to do so. Surfing the web and researching my bike is what brought me here in the first place, actually!

Our physical office is still open for a few folks who need to ship product and anyone who needs to go in for a few hours for whatever reason. We're pretty spread out anyways and the facilities crew has been cleaning/sanitizing every morning. So far, so good...

The coronavirus pandemic precautions haven't really slowed down some small businesses and independent contractors. A friend who does no-kill animal removal is still hopping busy. Another who is a one-man home remodeling contractor continues working on unoccupied houses, but has declined jobs remodeling occupied homes.

Let's hope this helps more politicians and Americans realize the value of small businesses and ordinary employees.

I've been in WFH status for the past three weeks. We have daily (!) Zoom check-in meetings for the 'team', and I go into the office for short periods if I need to use the office machinery (copiers, printers, mail stuff). Pretty light staff in the office when I have to go in. Best part is I only live 4 miles from the office, I can ride a bicycle there in my really casual clothes (shorts/t-shirt), take the bicycle up the elevator with me, and no one cares (I have yet to see the boss when I'm there). Not sure how long this will last, but I'm hoping if they start layoffs that they'll give me early retirement (I'm about 2.5 years away from 65y.o.).
