    All the truck drivers should work from home. They can drive their trucks with remote control sitting in the recliner.

    You say that till you have it and are dying. Please educate yourself rather than listening to rush and sean hannity. Its not the flu. Its something far worst. It literally has a kill rate 39 times that of the flu and thats just going by the numbers we have at hand.

    I love Rush. 2112 is a great album. No idea who this Sean Hannity dude is though.

    So what is your professional recommendation? Stop going to work, stop going to school, don't leave your house? I can't pay my bills sitting at home not working over a fear of a virus I may or may not get. Apart from taking precautions like frequent hand washing and not touching my face, what should I do?

    Exactly. I'm not gonna put life on hold and hide under my blanket for the next 2 months while this blows over.

    Wear a face mask. I've seen doctors saying they don't work, yet they're wearing one during an interview.
    Some are better than others, but I think if someone sneezes and coughs, I'd rather have a face mask catch some of that moisture than it hit me directly in the mouth and nose.
    They're hard to find due to demand, but I did find some at Harbor Freight and welding supply stores.
    They're not high quality, but, in my opinion, better than not wearing one in crowded places.

    But the eyes aren't protected

    You'll need a full face respirator disposable suits with a hoodie gloves and a ton of hand sanitizer
