    We got a notice encouraging us to use our 3D printers to produce parts for healthcare worker protection -- which we were going to do anyways but government is giving specific files to work on.

    Not apologizing
    Yeah, my city of about a million goes into lockdown tonight. Can only leave your house for supplies or to work if you’re an essential employee (wife and I both are). Punishable by up to 6 months in jail/$1,000 fine. School is out indefinitely, online learning starts on the 30th.

    You know like the fireside chats and FDR

    Leader talks to the people about whats going on and assures them that we will get through if we all do our part. Its a completely normal thing to do in times of crisis dude. Relax

    My phone network sent this,

    "Coronavirus Aus Gov msg: To stop the spread, stay 1.5m from others, follow rules on social gatherings, wash hands, stay home if sick. aus.gov.au"


    Rules? What fucking rules.
    Fucking laughable.

    Try our national broadcaster, the ABC, or the government website.
    The ABC youtube channel also has all the press events, including the current rules.
    They are also sending text messages to people with mobile phones apparently.

    Thanks but ABC news is the first book mark in my browser.

    I don't just want me to know, I want everyone to know.
    In simple text delivered to me as and when things change.

    Well, you were saying that you couldn't watch the PM's press releases unless you watched them live. That's certainly not true, they are recorded as text and/or video on all those sites.

    I'll second the Michigan sentiments...

    I pass into Canadian waters often and pick up signals from their cell towers. Some of my shipmates received texts today (3/27) from the Canadian government saying something like "you are spreading the virus, stay quarantined for 14 days"...

    *Edit: 2 posts too late. The exact text is up there ^^^
