My understanding is that it is still illegal to pump your own gas in New Jersey

That is correct.

Rand Paul has it and may well have passed it onto quite a few Senators.  What is so terrifying about this is he was asymptomatic and was feeling fine, but still had it (and was almost certainly infectious).  Because the US (and Canada) are so desperately short of testing equipment and facilities, the official line is if you don't have symptoms, you won't get tested -- and then obviously you can and will keep spreading it.  I'm not trying to spread blame, but right now we're up the proverbial creek.

Is there any place that is providing live virtual jazz?  I'd be willing to pay for a live stream if it helps musicians.

Around the middle of February I missed several days of work with a pretty unpleasant flu (diagnosed By teladoc).

Now I read that the loss or diminishment of taste/smell is a covid signifier and at one point I was starting to munch on peanuts that had essentially no taste. That lasted a couple of days I would say 

I also had the most hellacious coughing fits in which my throat would go into temporary spasm for 30 seconds or so. Never experienced that before.

It's also true that shortly thereafter my office mates missed work, and last week right before we went to telecommuting, one of them may have had a relapse.

So I am basically wondering if I actually had it. (My wife trailed me by a couple of days in her own experience of similar symptoms though I don't think she had a loss of taste.)

I had the same from New Year until a couple of weeks ago. Worse cough I've ever had, significant shortness of breath. Remember feeling very unwell at its peak but not sure I had the Covid temperature.  Scan showed likely pneumonia but I do wonder. Follow up x-ray this week if they're still doing them.

What I've been reading is that not all of the symptoms show up in everyone who catches it, and we know that 80% have "mild" version of it (that just means you don't end up on a ventilator or dead).  So Mark and Dan, you may indeed have had it.

I had something similar right over the Xmas period - most of the listed symptoms. Was bed-ridden for the best part of a week. Will never know if it was or wasn’t but it struck with a fever very quickly indeed and felt like nothing I’ve ever had before. Night sweats and waking up coughing. As the whole thing was combined with a nasty and very painful dental condition, this tended to take precedence in my attention and treatment. The chest thing took corticosteroids to shift. All of this before Coronavirus was even in the news.

My symptoms were way less severe ... Just the loss of taste was odd for me. Never anything bronchial, whatever it was.

No idea how essential it seems to the vast majority to go to the bakery store every single day.
No idea how not essential it seems to our institutions to provide more tests and more masks.
Such a guilty nonchalance.

Telecommuting - what an oxymoron - is working just fine here. Commuting from my desk to my turntable was a bit too frequent so I had to adjust. CDs only in the daytime.
Wishing the best to every person on the board and their relatives.

Interesting, I didn't know that about taste and smell. Were the peanuts unsalted?

I too came down with something back in late January. Viscous cough, no fever and cough aside it never ever seemed to turn into a full blown anything. I still experience a dry cough from time to time but I assume it is all allergy related since this is the time of year for that.

Damn.

NYC has 11,000 reported cases in a city of like 11,000,000 people, so 1 in 1,000 right now.  And a much lower percentage of those are serious/fatal  By all means it needs taken seriously, but by using common sense and consideration, people can protect themselves and others.   This too shall pass.  There are already advances in treatment.  And I believe some things will permanently change for the better because of this.  We aren't bulletproof, but the truth is, we never were.  So that can't be our hope or confidence.

Yet more evidence that it's potentially a very hazardous virus for young people to contract as well:

Indiana's governor just issued a stay-at-home order for the next two weeks, and our manager just handed me two letters from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to carry with me at all times, authorizing my ability to travel and purchase fuel as an employee of an essential communications entity.  Crazy times.

Peanuts were salted and that was the only flavor that just barely came thru at about 10 percent normal strength.

Still have a dry cough but that predated February illness.

Last week I had my office prepare file folder envelopes for traveling crews that contains letters/bulletins from various organizations/agencies raging from national trade associations, power generation/distribution clients and Feds citing the essential and critical need of services we provide.

Crazy times, no doubt. We are about to start work for the MTA/LIRR which means I have to send some people from a relatively safe area out west, across the country (driving) and into New York. I'm really struggling with this.

PA governor is issuing a stay-at-home order for Philly, the four suburban Philly PA counties, which includes Montgomery County, where I am (Philly also has New Jersey suburbs), Allegheny County (which is Pittsburgh and surrounding suburbs), and Monroe County (in the Poconos, prime getaway spot for Philly people).
