Mission accomplished !  After over an hour and half on hold with United Airlines, my wife was able to cancel her flight next week to Orlando.  And they were very nice about it.

Get off the Trump references...no place for that here.  It is apparent what your stance is.  

Rico, just wanted to apologize for getting political.  I let my emotions get out of hand.  I'm sorry for that...and will be more vigilant going forward.  I do understand the rule regarding politics and the reason.  Mea culpa.  Let's hope baseball season gets here sooner than later.  Go Reds!!  😁

Disneyland in California is shutting down 'til the rest of the month.

Could Disney World, Universal Studios, etc., be far behind?

I follow several You Tube channels that cover Disney World/Universal. And surrounding area.  Nothing yet. However, would not be surprised Disney World and others get shut down before long. As well as Disney World's like in Japan and France.

And after checking. Here is an update on Japan :

Only a matter of time before the rest of state follows suit.

Howdy folks - I'd encourage everyone to go read my post in the announcements section regarding this topic.

The shorter version?  Don't dive into deeply into politics and don't call each other names.

I’m a teacher and I fully expect tomorrow to be my last day for a while. Next week would have been our last week before spring break. The question now is, will we go back when we were scheduled to?

Any idea about high school or college graduation ceremonies?  Or is that still far enough away?

I would say that is too far in the future.  From what I am hearing these next 30 days will tell a lot.

Agree.  My educated prediction

Next week - continued spread to all states and growing number of cases.  Testing becomes more widely available

2 weeks - death rate sores in US to hundreds per day with total numbers in thousands, spread to essentially all communities

3 weeks - peak case numbers identified and death rates stabilize

4 weeks - stability in cases and deaths per day but numbers continue to mount

5 weeks - declining number of cases still stable growing death numbers

6 weeks - declining cases and deaths

7 weeks and beyond - virus fizzles

Armour smoked. I usually prefer the normal BBQ or hot & spicy but the options were limited. Never heard of bourbon BBQ though! Dang!

Bourbon bbq is great. Amazon is best bet to get it.  All armour Vienna sausages are good though. My second favorite is hot & spicy.

Ohio health official estimates that over 100,000 infected in Ohio alone.

https://www.wdrb.com/news/ohio-s-top-health-official-estimates-people-in-ohio-infected/article_a1169122-64da-11ea-866b-b3ed4b637ee4.html

Negative take:  That's a very big number and will only get bigger.  Extrapolated over the entire U.S. and it's incomprehensible.

Positive take:  If that many people are truly infected, then the mortality rate is well below the 3.5% that's being tossed out on all of the comparisons against the flu.  Too early to tell what the real percentage is, but since I don't think Ohio has had any deaths so far it could really be much lower than what is being quoted.

Beginning Monday, all Denver metro school districts will be closed the rest of March.  Some well into April.

The reason they did not close on Friday, is to give parents time to plan.
