Re: Flying in September, think it will be safe?

Air travel should reopen in about 2 weeks. Hopefully, common sense will prevail by then. Enjoy your travels. Don’t let the media and “experts” frighten you with their highly inaccurate models and social distancing nonsense.

Re: What will you do first, once COVID pandemic is over?

It’s business as usual for most rational people. Hopefully, common sense will prevail soon. If it is up to the media and the “experts” there will never be enough data for their highly inaccurate models and so they will continue to lecture us on social distancing and flattening the curve.

Re: How much cash to have during coronavirus panic?

Anyone change their mind, I'm thinking $5000 may not be enough. ;) We are very happy we have and had cash on hand - it is being used quite effectively during this virus related period. For what? Nobody I’ve exchanged money with lately wants cash. Everything is credit card only. They don’t even want...

Do not withdraw them yet. This could lead to harassment from their peers for the unnecessary panic.

Re: Should I keep paying fitness center fees while it is closed?

You should not pay for a service not being provided. We plan to bombard our gym with emails, phone calls, social media posts, etc. if they continue to charge us.
