Is your commute affected by coronavirus?

I work in Cambridge, MA where there has been an "outbreak" of the #coronavirus at Biogen. I noticed my commute to work this morning was a breeze, unlike my usual Monday morning commute. Have any other #jobcasers noticed lighter traffic and easier commutes? Are more people #WFH?

My commute is definitely a lot lighter on the train. The parking lot is nearly empty making it easier to find a spot before boarding the train in the morning. Of course, while this is convenient it is a bit worrisome.

This conversation was going on at MSNBC all weekend. The devastation from panic that could be created by this disease. What if everyone stops going to work? Since Americans are basically consumers, could this virus shut down our economy? What if everyone stops eating out, going to games and concerts or just going to their local bar? We cannot afford to allow ourselves to become victim to our fears. How long can we go without a paycheck? That is the bottom line. Most of those who have jobs cannot afford to take off work indefinitely. So, what's left is faith. We have to find the faith to keep going, knowing there is a power greater than we are in the universe that we can rely on to keep us safe and well. Walk by faith, not by sight.

My commute has been a breeze the past couple of days. Less people on the MBTA!

I am a tour bus driver that has been laid off due to schools, universities and corporate contacts canceling. Been sitting home for the last 3 days!

I work at an "essential" business and the parkways I take are just about empty. Would be nice for them to be almost this empty when the crisis is over.
