Over the past few days there have been two home invasions in just MY area. People robbed on the street. Suspicious cars roaming the streets recording neighborhoods.

New York has the highest incidence of the virus. Yet in the far reaches of the state by the Canadian boarder there are none. Population density is a definite factor.

The rules are different for everyone depending where you are located. I have a customer that I will see today. Their fire alarm continuously tripping. They will leave a key for me and have agreed to not be home when I get there.

My wife is a nurse and we have an ample supply of rubber gloves. I'm putting on rubber gloves when I arrive and will remove them before I get back in the truck and leave them at the site.

Some of us (like you)  have a job. It's nice to be able to stay home from a job. Some of us own companies.
