Well it has happened! We are now officially in lockdown!
The government made an announcement early this evening.
All schools are closed, they said until April 19th, but I’m pretty sure it will be for longer than that.
We’re not allowed to gather in groups of more than 4 people!
All non essential businesses are closed! Restaurants, cafe’s, everything is shut down!
Grocery stores are staying open, but we arent allowed to go out unless its absolutely essential.
They said we’re in this for the long haul. This could go on for months is what they said.
There is a law now that if your in a taxi, you have to sit in the back seat. You cant sit in the front.
Police are on the streets, manning the public parks, and other amenities.
I’ll be staying home, not gonna go to my parents. My PA said she’s still working, and unless that changes, I’ll be staying put.
I need access to good wifi, to do therapy, and my conference calls for slimming world.
So thats where things are at. I am anxious, very, very anxious. My anxiety has hit an entirely new level.
The only thing we can do now is sit tight, and wait, wait for this to pass, and as our local media here keeps saying, it will pass. It wont go on forever.
