    I see Fox news has said we are basically running concentration camps here in NZ. Do any Americans actually believe this crap?

    Still ok where I'm at. The building where I live has an open floor plan so our units face open sky atria. Basically, outside my door is a roofless atrium. It's pleasant and under the circumstances, safer than closed hallways. We've had 3 cases in the building, staggered across 3 months. The first case though also included all of the building staff. The latest two are limited to just their apartments.

    My family and I are fine . We have a house protocol where we disinfect everything when we come from outside (or any package we receive) and we wash our hands. We're all equipped with small spray bottles of alcohol which we use generously in a variety of ways. So far so good.

    The city and some parts of the country had a strict lockdown for 2-3 months starting around March. This has been gradually loosened but we're all still required to practice social distancing and wearing of masks / face shields. My family and I have basically been in our flat for months now, and have only gone out to buy supplies and go to the bank. We only got to visit my mom two weeks ago, after 7.5 months. We used to visit every other week. (I missed her nagging!) We work from home, which I like because it's convenient and cheaper than going to the office. I wish there were some kind of balance though: the economy of working from home plus a certain amount of face-to-face interaction with colleagues.

    Hi Rocketyos, your place sounds just wonderful and I am glad you and family are doing good. It's a rough spot for sure in the world these days, so it's always good to hear when friends are doing ok during all the havic and saddness. We all are hoping that someday things will go back to normal. Stay safe and drop a post so we know all is well with you and family!!! Stay safe!!!:emoji_hugging::emoji_hugging::emoji_hugging::emoji_hugging:
