    I thought it would be best to collate our thoughts, paranoid delusions, logical fallacies and observations in one spot.
    I'll start: I haven't got it... yet. I'll probably catch it before anybody - I have hundreds of you disease-carrying bastards breathing all over me every week. The other doctor here works in an isolated, darkened room, protected by hard radiation and layers of lead sheeting, so he's safe.
    There is a mountain of information out there from authorised sources, which I'm not going to repeat - it's all fairly standard stuff.
    The best way to isolate yourself is to be alone in your Ferrari, in a rural area, doing 200+ kph (viruses can't move that fast). So the GG and GAD should be OK - maybe even attract some sort of emergency funding...

    ...............and THE biggest bonus for some of those folk who take up your suggestion..................................is to do it drunk as a skunk 'cos there isn't going to be any static breathalising...apparently.

    Now I just have to work out what an essential business is, both my own psych practice with my ex and my partner's own psych practice will most likely need to close but at least we can do our services online.

    Me too mate. I employ 11, and fear it may be much less by the end of the week. What do you do?

    Greg and I don't care. We're loaded.

    We're just staying home and living off our huge passive income.

    I do vinyl lining of swimming pools, which is obviously a non essential service. We only have family involved just my wife and my brother. But if people have no money the pool will be farthest from peoples minds !!

    I wish you the best of luck over the coming months. We’re all going to be paddling the canoe up **** creek for a while.
    Well, maybe not all of us. Not all of us are loaded.

    Yes, it will generate a lot more mental illness, while simultaneously restricting access to help. There are new item numbers for telehealth, but I believe you guys had that already.
