Serious question. Gobert has a lot of money. Can he be held liable for his reckless behavior when this causes a breakout in OKC? I mean, he has deep NBA pockets.

There's a lot of hourly workers that are now out paychecks, you know.

Mark Cuban just referenced that in a court side interview, saying they'll "put programs in place" for those people.

Gobert didn't cause this and team doctors obviously didn't believe he was really sick.

I don't think you can blame them. The volume of calls must be 100x normal.

What are your travel plans?

I'm so confused. Travel ban says from Europe, in effect 30 days, starting 3/13. I assume they won't let US fly to Europe? Of course the UK exemption comes into play. So in 26 days from the ban, I'm supposed to fly to Hungary via London. Then in 32 days from the ban, I'm supposed to fly from Hungary to UK to back home. Non refundable ticket from British Airways.

Keeping kids at home even if schools open?  My kids are 5 and 3 and only in pre-k and pre-school. Thinking not important really that they need to be there.  Just as worried, if not more, about them bringing home some other bug.

That’s because he’s one of the few logical and reasonable owners in professional sports.  Good for him.

I'm pulling mine out as of tonight (3rd and 8th grades).  We can see where we are on Monday.

Serious question are you also avoiding restaurants, stores, the mall, etc ? Are you working from home. If you owned your own business, say a contractor would you close up and refuse to go in peoples houses? I’m curious how far people are willing to go.

I think the ban is only from foreign nationals flying from Europe. Americans can still fly to the US. I think.

Had no choice with two teams currently being quarantined.

I think Americans would need to be cleated before they can return here.

Every report I see says all travel. My daughter is studying in Switzerland. Her school announced this morning that they were going to stay there for now. I wonder if they change that based on the impending ban. Going to be a run on flights between now and Friday.

Seems a bit aggressive and mean. But if cleating people is part of our new testing protocol, so be it.

My company already sent us all into WFH.  Wife's is very likely to follow in next day or two.

We're holing up for 14 days to be sure we don't have it.  Then we'll reevaluate where we are.  Mad at myself I didn't do this Monday.

“Exceptions may be made to the restrictions, and they will not apply to the United Kingdom. The 30-day ban applies only to foreign nationals, not to legal permanent U.S. residents and generally their immediately family members, according to the Department of Homeland Security.“

If the goal is to prevent spread then this has to be done. You have Tom Hanks and Rita diagnosed and in quarantine in AUS. Had they returned, Hollywood would start being on the map.
