I am working at nuclear power plant and we have a refuel outage coming in couple weeks after that if things don’t calm down I expect to get laid off by end of May. My wife works in health care industry so as long as she doesn’t get sick she should be good.

Sorry for the dumb questions...but why would you be at risk for layoff?

I am truly sympathetic to your situation. None of us are coming out of this unscathed. I think the population density of the area makes your situation much worse than some of us.

My son is an ER doctor and I'm sure he would take any suggestion that will stop this. What do you suppose they should do? They have very little protective equipment and are inundated with patients. Please don't take this as a personal attack, he is frustrated too and worried about bringing it home to his family. I don't think anyone knows how to fix this fast.

Good morning all.

We supply HVAC Filters.
MD has most everything closed and no more then 10 people in any group, at least 6 ft apart.

Working, but has slowed. The service we provide is HVAC Testing & Balancing and only work we have is at health care facilities at this point most of the other construction projects are shut down. Wife works in health care and we are just hoping we don't come down with the virus.
Be safe out there !!!!

Business has been home-based since 2005. Been working through a tremendous backlog of orders. First quarter is always my busiest, although there really hasn't been a slow time in over a year.

I work as a field service engineer for a medical device company. Currently our factory in the SF bay area is shutdown and operating on a skeleton crew just shipping out parts but not sure how long that will last with our supply chain being broken. I work from home and travel to hospitals to repair our equipment in operating rooms but am really slow right now, unless it is a hard down emergency the hospitals won't let you in. Scheduled preventive maintenance has all but come to a halt. I maybe logged 20 hours last week. This week may be less. I only have so much admin work to do at home

I manage the Birmingham store, for the rental division of the Alabama Caterpillar dealer. We have responded by telling many of our employees to work from home, but my job (and my team) is a 'be present' role, so we are working normal business hours.

More importantly, we have many customers doing construction projects that are moving forward as normal. Our very large accounts have slowed somewhat, due to them usually having lots of people involved in projects. Our smaller accounts are working every day and continuing to look to us for equipment and services. Alabama currently has 130 ish confirmed cases of the virus, and climbing. I expect a more aggressive state order to close businesses for 1-2 weeks, in the coming days. We shall see.

Still pushing up walls,driving nails(not a lot mostly use gun) and yelling at worker to just do what they where told w/o a ton of screw ups.So pretty much normal.

We are working on 2 houses both out in country a ways and rarely more than 5 or 6 on site at one time. As as materials can be delivered or picked up I plan to keep rolling.

Week 2 of working from home here. We provide engineering services to a number or large manufacturing and agriculture businesses. Already starting to see some clients going through cost reductions which are going to likely set us back 10 years worth of growth that was a result of really hard work. All wiped away in a week, basically.

My wife's business is closed.

I manage capital engineering programs. I’m working... from Home. However, I always work from home when I am not on the road. My office is in Mexico (live in NC), but I cant get there right now and I really miss it. Things are more difficult when not in the plant(s).

42 Hotel nights this year already, so being at home is fun though.

My wife and I are doing "Welfare Checks" on many of our friends. We have a regular schedule of daily phone calls basically to know that they are fine and to ask if they need anything. This started something with a lot of our racer friends, now they are also calling friends, the list is growing.

So to answer the original question, yep we are working!

The plant isn’t making as much money as they want and after we finish refueling and picking everything up they want to lay off all construction crafts(me) so they can lay off some plant workers. The owners just came out of bankruptcy.

I was on vacation yesterday and today. (planned several months ago). Will be back at work tomorrow. No lock down yet, but auto repair is one of the "essential businesses". I don't know how much customer demand they'll be.


It's amazing to me. For instance, pentastarrails entire state is shut down, with 415 cases.


I used to be a people person, but people ruined that.

The company I work for had us all start working from home last week, for three weeks ending April 3.

Company-wide email today extended that another two weeks, through April 17.
