We have been very wary as family as Italians and have been watching closely since at least early February. Our events in June in Italy, which include a wedding and a golden wedding anniversary of my parents, obviously were called off and that was well before the virus hit mainstream in North America.
Our family there are safe as are my parents who took shelter in a week before the mandate given their age and risk factors.
I myself already had an unrelated health matter on my plate for March, and I hope to put it to rest on Monday.
Last Thursday to Saturday I went from partial unemployment, and business dead since a record day 3 March, to more hours, a slight raise, and a record month for business!
That's more than enough for a quarter there let alone a month.
I am blessed and don't take it for granted given how things are looking.
