I'm doing fine. Supposedly I'm in a high-risk category because I'm 60, but I have zero pre-existing conditions. I do frequent schools in my line of work, and I know children are little petri dishes and can be asymptomatic, but I'm not exceedingly concerned about it--especially since our schools have now been closed down statewide.
Haven't been in contact with my dad, but he and my stepmom are homebodies, when he's not driving around in the early hours delivering newspapers.

I’m 47 my ex is 58 and we are both essential. I’m in a out patient clinic so not a huge risk. My ex is a cardiologist so when he works inpatient he is definitely at higher risk. I guess it is a good thing he is sober now and has lost weight so as far as I know relatively healthy and I’m very healthy as well. Considering healthy young people are dying as well there are obviously no guarantees. My parents are in their 80S and relatively healthy really but definitely slowing down a lot due to their age. They are in Switzerland and got their right before the borders closed (they live in the Netherlands and split their time between the 2) and are probably better off there even thought they have a lot of cases there. They live in the mountains and keep to themselves. Really at this point being closer to home probably wouldn’t make a big difference since most hospitals don’t allow visitors in the hospital should it get to that point. My aunt lives in Paris and is staying home, I spoke with another aunt and she isn’t going anywhere either I guess we are all elderly lol, my sister is 56 but working from home. My brother is 52 and an orthopedic surgeon so some risk obviously though less than ER and ICU workers. Guess there isn’t much you can do other than the things you have control over and other than that just go with it and hope for the best.
