How is everyone planning on passing the time during isolation?  Normally we go out every day when I'm not working and most afternoons when I finish work.  This now has to stop.  BUT I have our days planned.

We are going to deep clean our house.
De-clutter all (well, most) of our cupboards
Sort out the garden
Sort out the garage (that's a BIG maybe)
Have some very long, leisurely meals (six hours is the record so far)
Watch a few box-sets and films
OH is going to finish off the model boat he has been working on then after a deep-clean of our hobby room he will start on the two large books of model airplanes and military vehicles that he got for Christmas.
I have lots of Sudoku puzzles to get done.
We can also walk along the beach which is about 1/4 mile away from home.  It's very sparsely used so good open space.

We'll be fine.

I would say to everyone - don't forget personal hygiene.  It's very easy to think 'I won't bother to shower/wash hair/clean teeth today as I'm not going anywhere.  It's a slippery slope.  Also, keep moving.  Don't just sit in one chair all day long.  Move around the house if it's possible sitting in different rooms.  Try to keep your brain active.  Get out of bed at your usual time because, again, it's easy to think there is no reason to get up if you have nowhere to go.

Just some thoughts - I'm not dictating to anyone.

Edit:  Oh, and I have to work (from home)  I nearly forgot  :)

I haven't forgotten it, but our water was cut off without notice an hour ago. A new school is being built just down the road, so it's likely the builders have (yet again) cut through a water pipe.

I was thinking about that today as well. It's probably a great danger, especially amongst some older people without others to keep an eye on them. Some may reach the point of wonder why it is worth getting up. I suppose it is better this has happened now, rather than in the middle of Winter, at least they won't have to worry too much about heating.

I thought about that too.  At least we are coming into Spring/Summer and we can get in the garden (if we have one) rather than facing bleak weather and long dark evenings.

True, clocks go forward here in the UK on the 29th March, so at least it will be lighter in the evenings.

   I have just heard someone on the radio say that this is a notifiable disease, which I gather from a quick check means that doctors have to notify it. Does this mean that we should tell the doctor about mild cases, like my daughter, which do not require treatment? There must be 1000's of uncounted cases?

Has your daughter tested positive for the virus T of the H?

Wouldn't the lab which tested her and confirmed her results automatically pass on the information to the authorities?
