this is from the main thread and still applies:

Thanks for the info, jbiz. I think it's a good idea to make a shopping list then for ourselves / our older friends / family. Would be great if there are confirmed medical professionals who could add/change this:

Western Medicine

-fever and body aches - acetaminophen, and/or NyQuil/DayQuil, maybe ibuprofen too [1]
-cough suppressant - dextromethorphan (Robitussin...if it says something like "suppressant and expectorant" it will also have mucinex in it - the ingredient in mucinex is guaifenesin)
-nasal decongestion - pseudoephedrine (Sudafed - people with high blood pressure should avoid this)


My info comes from Dr. Tanaya Bhowmick (via healthline.com), an infectious disease specialist at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, New Jersey. She also recommends that people who rely on prescription medications keep approximately a 30-day supply on hand.

Non-pharmacological care
-Sleep
-Tons of water
-Food
-Adequate supplies of TP, Paper towels, disinfectant spray or wipes, soap galore; hand sanitizer for going out
-Message boards, setup a slack with friends, write, play music, watch movies, stretch, move, get fresh air and sun in non-crowded places; stay mentally healthy and stay in touch with friends and family



What else?

I would also add: reach out to those in nursing homes or assisted living as much as you can...just for company.

I'm thinking how many youngsters are feeling alone and thrown off by the lack of socializing; consider these friends in the homes who are usually incredibly isolated and now even more so.

you're right, damn, thanks for catching that. I just changed it in the above post.

Please add or edit if you find necessary, since a lot of that info came from your initial post.

Thanks.

here's some information regarding California state benefits that my company emailed out today that might be helpful for anyone in CA. the state waived the 1 week waiting period for unemployment benefits, which includes reduction of hours...
Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order yesterday to further enhance the state and local government’s ability to respond to COVID-19. Below is a summary of state benefits that may be accessed should you need to take time off work due to reasons related to COVID-19.

Sick or Quarantined

California’s paid sick leave law provides time off for employees to take paid sick leave for themselves or a family member for preventative care, diagnosis, and care or treatment of a health condition. Please know that you are entitled to use whatever sick leave or PTO you have accumulated. Please remember to follow standard time off request protocols by submitting a time off request in ADP, and if you are a clinical staff member, by also submitting a Request for Time Off form to Client Services and your Supervisor.

If you’re unable to work due to having or being exposed to COVID-19 (certified by a medical professional), you can file a Disability Insurance (DI) claim by going to https://www.edd.ca.gov/Disability/How_t ... Online.htm

DI provides short-term benefit payments to eligible workers who have a full or partial loss of wages due to a non-work-related illness, injury, or pregnancy. Benefit amounts are approximately 60-70 percent of wages (depending on income) and range from $50-$1,300 a week.

Caregiving

If you’re unable to work because you are caring for an ill or quarantined family member with COVID-19 (certified by a medical professional), you can file a Paid Family Leave (PFL) claim by going to https://www.edd.ca.gov/Disability/How_t ... Online.htm

PFL provides up to six weeks of benefit payments to eligible workers who have a full or partial loss of wages because they need time off work to care for a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child. Benefit amounts are approximately 60-70 percent of wages (depending on income) and range from $50-$1,300 a week.

Reduced Work Hours
If your work hours have been reduced due to COVID-19, you can file an Unemployment Insurance (UI) claim by going to https://www.edd.ca.gov/Unemployment/Filing_a_Claim.htm

UI provides partial wage replacement benefit payments to workers that have their hours reduced, through no fault of their own. Workers who are temporarily unemployed due to COVID-19 and expected to return to work with their employer within a few weeks are not required to actively seek work each week. However, they must remain able and available and ready to work during their unemployment for each week of benefits claimed and meet all other eligibility criteria. Eligible individuals can receive benefits that range from $40-$450 per week.

Something that's actually been useful (except for the more paranoia-prone friends in the discord that we've made for voice chatting) is adding a bot to its own channel that gives stats and stuff. Its not preventative or anything but it's helped keep people who are avoiding the news up to date

This is University of Washington's Policies and protocols website for COVID-19. It is meant for medical professionals (or those in the healthcare world), but might shed some light on how things are proceeding within the community. It has all of the information on how they are handling everything from testing criteria to what to do with an autopsy.

This haven't been any documented cases of surface transfer, but a couple of articles out there cite studies that show it can live 2-3 days on metal and maybe several hours on cardboard. It's probably fine but if it were me I would probably wear gloves and mask when writing and assembling just for the psychological reassurance if anything. My grandma is 98 with congestive heart failure so I definitely get your concern.
