I am in Tucson, Arizona, USA and we are not yet in mandatory lock down. The Virus cases are low here but rising , so we are only going out if necessary and practicing Social Distancing like everyone., I hope.

I just wanted to say that I wish everyone a safe passage through this crazy time.

Please be safe, stay healthy and Game Guru On!

I’m in ne uk and am in total lock down isolation for 12 weeks at least.

It is very strange and surreal as you say ... almost like being in a movie somehow

Hope you and everyone stay safe ... reckon it’ll get even more weird before it gets better.

Cheers.

In the Netherlands we are in lockdown and it will last until june for now, so enough time to be busy with GG.
For me, i'm getting better with the day and feeling less tired now, but many members of my family are having flu like symptoms.
Crazy times indeed, because there is no way of knowing if this flu was, or is due to cov19.
We'll just act as if it is and thus stay home, better to be on the safe side.

Be save.

In Catalonia (geographically in Spain).
Well, the AIDS virus is already quite controlled, so the pharmaceutical industry needed extra income, but as always it got out of hand, and here we are all suffering the consequences.
I am personally confined at home, taking advantage to work on my projects, my town seems like a ghost town and the supermarkets are beginning to look like the empty supermarkets in Venezuela.
So, be very careful, I need you all in good health and willing to work with GGMax in September.

That's not quite correct. The UK isn't in full lock down quite yet (unless it's changed since last nights PM announcement). You are allowed to leave the house for the following reasons:

- Shopping for basic necessities such as food and medicine. Shopping trips should be as infrequent as possible
- One form of exercise a day such as a run, walk, or cycle. This should be done alone or only with people you live with
- Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person. This includes moving children under the age of 18 between their parents' homes, where applicable. Key workers or those with children identified as vulnerable can continue to take their children to school
- Travelling to and from work, but only where work absolutely cannot be done from home

(this is for the general populace, there are different restrictions (mostly voluntary) in place for those on the extremely vulnerable list, and the NHS will contact them directly)

Quote: "I’m in ne uk and am in total lock down isolation for 12 weeks at least."


I assume you are in the extremely vulnerable category have received your letter from the NHS instructing you to isolate for 12 weeks, that's a bummer, hope it all goes well for you.

yes essential shopping only Belidos...... drastic measure for peacetime, as much as Boris is not my choice of leader, he is doing a good job..... he is paying my wages for the next 3 weeks, if not more, if the government didn't step in, society here in the UK would more than likely collapse. Well done Boris.

Everyone here keep safe...

Similar situation in Michigan. We're currently in a 3-week lockdown, State-wide. Keep your immune system boosted, and drink plenty of water, as well as getting plenty of rest and sleep.

Yeah, Australia is almost in complete lockdown, 1000's have lost their jobs and are on the stimulous package from the government, only go out for essentials is the best thing to do, starting to use law enforcement to get people to practice social distancing in some states.

Don't go anywhere unless you really need to even if you are allowed!

Stay out of Covids way

Head over to my freebies thread and get yourself a bunch of fpm's for GG created using HM2GG I just posted the other day - that'll keep you entertained

Here in Italy, we cannot leave the houses, only out of necessity with a self-certification, it is allowed to go out to buy food.
I will take this opportunity to have some fun on the PC, hoping that it will end soon.

In Germany (Bavaria) we should stay at home... only allowed to go out for food, medical, work...
The only good thing at the moment, I can work from home with a notebook. Now I save 2 hrs. everyday which I don't have to spend in the car.
My wife have to stay at home, can not go to work. Most shops are closed.
And yes, now I can play around with GG But with the lastest release my levels always crash
GameGuru ON!
Old school FPS fan, DOOM!!! Why GG not working on my AMIGA 500?

Here in California, we still have people thinking it is a priority to return there Amazon packages. Fake eyelashes, shoes, clothing. No real need to be out. but still they keep bringing them in for return.

And they treat us UPS Store workers, like we are spreading the virus around.

Stay home people!!!!!

Same here in Catalonia, here we tried to take care about times ago, but as always and for everything we has to get the spanish goverment agreement and green light, so now spain is the firts places with more people infected.

I'm at home working on my project and I'm very happy with the results so far, I've hope to publish something here as far as possible.
