So...did we ever figure out if it was actually a pool related person who tested positive?

Only supply stores and grocery outfits are doing business now besides hospitals and that will slow once everyone has hoarded what they need. Covid has been doubling in the USA every 2.5 days of late and we don't even have test kits for 20% of the population and waaaaaay less than 1% have been tested to date so there is no telling how bad it may really be.If we get away with only a recession, we will be quite fortunate.

PS- Italy now has more deaths than China-Im betting all that men kissing men respect crap is a factor.
Where we disagree isn't on much, but what I'm saying is that the market's reaction has more to do with the perceived magnitude and length of the upcoming recession which, although you've accurately cited the textbook definition, will likely last more than two quarters. That recession will likely be a deep and extended one regardless of how long it takes to get out of the woods with corona. The perceived length of this health scare is just one of many things driving market volatility. Then again, perhaps we agree after all.

Don't go in an elevator unless you live on the 15th floor or something and then take it alone if possible.

On second thought, i just recalled Cali has mandatory shelter in home edict in effect i think

Shelter in place except for essential needs like getting food or going to the bank or pharmacy. You won't get arrested if you go out for a drive (virtually no traffic) but this is more a request by our local government for the protection of everybody.

Yes, a request for now. If residents don't heed the governor's order, my money in on Martial Law following in short order.

Wir haben angst und sind allein

I’ve been raising my kid alone for years, her mom just moved close to where I can actually have some weeknights and whole weekends to go out and do whatever and then this crap started lol.

Everyone’s got it bad but many are worse off than me. Whoever created this game is cruel and usual.

I’m just looking forward to whenever it’s over and the congregating spots open back up. I have a feeling there will be a very festive and loose atmosphere

I suspect that day when things are back to near normal is more weeks away that we all can imagine.

My daughter just landed at LAX from Costa Rica. She was supposed to be on Avianca, but they suspended service until April. We were able to get her on Delta and she's back.

She's coming back from her trip to a different world than she left just over a week ago. Shortages, shelter in place, essential services - for a college students this is so foreign to them, it's an alternate reality.

There are a lot of Americans simply stuck overseas for the time being, no way back.

that's great news, Chris!

I'm sure you can't wait to see her and give her a big hug...., you know, a big air hug...like 6 feet apart...

congrats and be safe.

As you know, I'm in the meetings business. I received this from Marriott and it's chilling, the CEO of Marriott discussing the Covid 19 impact on them. Considering Marriott is the world's largest hotel chain, the repercussions are significant. Many businesses are impacted in the same way. The domino effect will be significant. The important thing to a business is lasting until we can make a recovery.

REFUNDS TO BE ISSUED FOR 2020 BCA POOL LEAGUE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
March 21, 2020

On Sunday, March 15 we made the unfortunate announcement that the final four days of the BCA Pool League World Championships, scheduled for March 11-21, would be canceled due to the growing COVID-19 pandemic. This eliminated the teams portion of the event and left many asking if they would receive entry fee refunds. The answer is yes, of course.

Entry fees typically consist of three parts - prize fund, admin fees and green fees. Admin fees help cover the administrative cost of processing entries and green fees help cover the cost of the pool tables, lights, staff and other setup needs. Although hundreds of hours were spent processing entries and verifying ratings and eligibility (i.e. admin fees) and 150,000 square feet of the Rio Convention Center was setup with over 300 Diamond pool tables and lights (i.e. green fees), many of our members ultimately did not get to play. Therefore, CueSports International will issue full refunds upon request for divisions that were canceled.

We are also taking this a step further. The event was already underway when the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared COVID-19 a pandemic on March 11. After that announcement, some people whose travel plans were scheduled after March 11 chose to not make the trip. Therefore, CueSports International will also issue full refunds upon request to those registrants who did not participate in the 8-Ball Singles divisions which began on Saturday, March 14.

To request a refund, please visit www.playcsipool.com/refunds and complete the Refund Request Form by May 25, 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc across the world and many people have suddenly found themselves without work or income. Although this has also been a massive blow to CueSports International, we will process refunds as quickly as possible in the hope that it will help ease the burdens on our members in some small way.

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy in this unprecedented time.

The right thing would be to issue refunds without having to make a request. The greedy bastards want to keep as much as they can.

Even nonprofits are refunding people without them having to make an affirmative request.
