    Yea labs literally don't have the equipment to run tests any faster. There's a lot of tests out there but the ones most readily available take several days. The technology and resources can only keep up so fast with something so new

    Oh I’m sorry @HBC! I hope it’s regular sick from normal germs and being burnt out. Enjoy your rest and doggy snuggles.

    Sorry you’re dealing with this @HBC, but I hope antibiotics are enough to help you kick it and you’re able to rest and enjoy the time off.

    @HBC stay well, friend. I hope the test is negative and that you're on the mend soon... and selfishly for us I'm glad you're away from that environment for a little while, even though I know you're a helper and want to be able to help <3

    Long distance hugs, @HBC. Hoping it’s nothing big and you can use this time to rest up.

    I think the one positive to come out of this is this is really illuminating to me all of the things I've taken for granted and will make me a more aware human going forward. Like Amazon is a necessary evil right now, and they're providing a needed service to us all, but the reason there are limited alternatives is because we let Amazon kill them, all for the low low price of free two day shipping. I have never thought enough about the supply chain and resources it takes to get goods from all over the world to me. I'm also watching closely how retailers are responding to the crisis and how they treat their workers- somehow from workers themselves it would appear that in this reality Walmart of all corporations is treating employees better than Target by a long shot. Costco has also been terrible to their employees, and endangered others by leaving stores with known cases open without deep cleaning! CVS and Walgreens have been equally unhelpful, but previously dying Rite Aid is actually doing it right. I also realized how much I valued media and news and I've been super impressed with their coverage so while I used to complain about their firewalls, I just signed up for a digital subscription to the New York Times.

    FWIW, rooster has been a Walmart employee for 10 years and they have always been place that is decent to work for. His insurance is pretty decent (mine is better, though) and 401k match is higher than mine. They definitely arent perfect (anti-union among other things) but they’re nowhere near Amazon’s level corruption.

    They're also encouraging sick employees to continue to come to work, which really cancels them for me.

    Our local Target has been doing a good job of cleaning, limiting supplies to 1 item per household, etc. Shitty to hear that on a corporate level they are trash.
