I’m a Snap On franchisee In Sacramento. Started seeing it about a week ago when random people didn’t show up to work cause they were afraid to get sick. Now I am hearing that the auto dealerships may not allow tool venders on property until further notice. Being my route is 65% dealerships who knows how this will turn out....

No shit? My dad Carl (same name) is a mechanic. Worked for Goodyear for 20+ years in Elk Grove and now works for Pepsi as a diesel mechanic. He wont use anything other than Snap On tools. His favorite days were everytime the snap on truck came by.

I myself work in real estate underwriting mortgage loans. Business has been booming with the low rates and purchase season is around the corner. I keep waiting for my job to make us work from home but for now they keep saying business as usual and to show up. It's going to take someone actually testing positive at the building before my work shuts things down.

I’m in the Bay Area and a mandatory 3 week “shelter in place” order starts at midnight. I think shit around here is going to get sketchy. There is a lot of gray area about who is allowed to travel and who is supposed to be isolated - only essential personnel are supposed to be out on the roads but you can go to the store or doctor if needed. Mass transit is still going to run but you must stay 6 feet away from the next person. Is this just the beginning of a much stricter order to come?

IT for gov/public safety/911. Things have gotten busy but I work in a highly secure building and we are pushing on just like normal.

I'm at a University. Still open but all of my kids' sports have been cancelled and those groups are smaller than Uni class sizes. First 2 cases in my town today. We shall see...

My kids school and day care have been shut down. Our oldest (6) goes to a private school and our youngest (2) goes to day care. We still have to pay for both even though they arent attending. Oh, and now on top of that we have to pay someone to watch them every day while we work. Hopefully everything goes back to normal in a few weeks. I wont hold my breath though.

My wife’s school was trying to keep the daycare open, but they had no luck. They are on a week to week basis right now. Thankfully, the school asked the teachers if the were willing to babysit the kids during the closure and a bunch of parents jumped at the chance of having my wife watch their kids. She may potentially make more than actually going to work. Fingers crossed this goes no more than 2 weeks though.

I pay $27 per day per kid here. Theres serious money into having a day care if you can handle a bunch of kids. And barring unforeseen circumstances such as the corona, people will always need child care.

I do blueprints for new houses, room additions, remodels, etc. After the best start to a year since I went into business I have had only 1 call for a new project in the last two weeks... Luckily I'm small enough I can keep my head above water for a few months, but this could have huge effects on the economy moving forward and people may have to worry about surviving financially rather then worries about home improvements. Hope we can all get through it!

The big push this week in my role has been heavily focused upon VPN link consumption on the regional towers. We've seen substantial increase to say the least.

Ouch. It wouldn't even be worth my wife working at that point.

I work for the Railroad as a Conductor and there is no down time for us. The only people that will get any time off without the threat of losing their jobs are the management/executives. We have been told if you feel sick to stay home but if you take more than 3 days off in a 90 period you are subject to termination.

I work in the shop at an REI and am home 2 weeks with pay starting yesterday. I fear things will be way worse in 2 weeks. Then what?

It's going to be horrendous for the economy for awhile. Hopefully not a super long while. Best to you all to stay on top through it.

Strategic Account Manager for a tire manufacturer. I work remote anyways, so working from home for the next 3 weeks isn't a tall order. Just hopeful that consumer spending comes back strong in Q2 and makes up for this crappy Q1. We will make it. Hope everyone stays safe and secure out there.

I was at one of my customers offices today in Union City, CA and 3 new hires who they had hired away from a competitor were due to start working. I got to overhear a manager tell them their positions were on hold for a few weeks due to the current state of the Bay Area. I know at least one of them left a job of 15 years to go there.

So we officially sent everyone home today and for the rest of the month we are all working from home.

Our kids were to start back to school this week but that has been put on hold. the schools are likely going to online only for the remainder of the year. That’s for kindergarten, 3rd and 4th grade.

I’m not sure what all the families will do when you have two income households.

We are very fortunate that I make enough that my wife has been able to stay home for a number of years. But what about all those families with both parents working? Or single moms or dads raising kids?

I’m just not sure what happens. Just a big giant mess right now. And unfortunately we are just at the beginning of this shit storm.

The boom and bust economy is here, it's over. Its funny looking back at the page 1 comments about "as long as things don't get worse..." and here we are 3 days later, it's worse. In 3 more days it's going to be even worse than it has been, and so on. This is something bigger than any of us have ever seen will be written in textbooks. Start saving and STOP spending

I'm the GM of a high-line car dealership in So. Ca. We sell Porsche, Bentley, Ferrari, Benz, Maserati... .. People in this market seem to think that this is a great time to buy, but we just got the lockdown notice this evening. We'll see how it goes the next few days.... I learned a very valuable lesson in 2008, always have a cash surplus on hand because you never know what's going to happen....
And you guys going thru the lean times. Been there, done that.. That was probably the funnest times i ever had with my kid. Enjoy it while you can.
