Yes; caution and preparedness, not panic.

I don't leave the house very often, and then it is usually HD or grocery store during slow hours.  I wonder if Ken and I had COVID -19 two (2) weeks ago?  Mainly fever with chills followed by sweats.  A cough after the fevers stopped.  If that was what we had, then we were lucky with the health affects and should have some immunity.  ??

Can't help but share this here: Razz

Unless you also had difficulty breathing, you're probably fine.  The likely worst-case scenario is that you contracted the milder form of the virus, which should confer lifetime immunity to that particular strain.  

As long as you haven't had a positive test for COVID-19 or experienced more severe symptoms, I don't think it's necessary to self-quarantine or take measures beyond what's routinely recommended by CDC:  Wash your hands frequently, as directed by the CDC, avoid crowds, and cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing, preferably in your elbow.  Dispose of used Kleenex, etc. as soon as possible.  Maintain 6-7' distance from anyone coughing, sneezing, etc.  If you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing, etc. get tested and voluntarily quarantine yourself.


Please note that I'm not a medical doctor, but do consult with same from time to time and follow the updates.  


I had a cold or mild version of the flu three + weeks ago.  It began with a mild sore throat, which resolved within two days, some mild fatigue, drippy nose, sneezing, cough, and once, my temperature "spiked" at 99.3F.  Within 5.5 days, I began to recover, and am now fine.  There was no extreme fatigue or fever, so I probably had a garden-variety cold.  I don't get out much, either, and so far there are only 21 confirmed cases in Oregon.  


My MO is to go with probablities, rather than possibilities, while keeping informed and taking appropriate precautions.

Baker Creek Heirloom (https://www.rareseeds.com/) is shut down until at least Monday to tray to catch up on orders and restock shelves. Apparently an abnormal rush to buy seeds has overwhelmed them.

Not surprised. I read somewhere that seeds were in short supply in big box stores. I don't know this personally because I'm staying home right now.

Victory Seeds is having trouble filling orders due to the panic buying that is taking place now, and they say it may take up to four weeks to fulfill an order for seeds.  Panic buying has taken its toll on them, too!

I wonder how many of those seed packets will actually be used? Once this has passed, will people still want to panic garden? Do they understand that it will be weeks or months before the plants produce?
