i'd like to get cable during this whole stay at home order, but my building has rules in place during this which includes no work done on your apartment, which i'm assuming the cable guy falls under, so no cable.

but, I can get the Cuomo press briefing on the internet, so that's mostly what I wanna see anyway.

It may be possible to order cable, get account set up and then stream on app. Fios and Xfinity both have app to watch all channels.

In general, no. No one has been in my house. However if the fridge/HVAC/washer broke I'd have to get them fixed. Same with a busted pipe or a similar event.

Some douchebag came knocking on my door a week or so ago. He had a clipboard in his hand so assume he was probably looking for money for some cause. He respectfully stood 10 feet back when I opened the door. I just said "No" before he could get a word in and he turned around and left.

So far, our adult daughter, yes. She's returning to her home today, to an area with somewhat move exposure than here, to a job that will involve some interaction with people, in a business deemed essential. Unclear whether we will let her return anytime soon. Certainly not if symptomatic, probably not if risk increases where she'll be. Next potential visit here is in 2 weeks, as her employer currently has employees 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off. She and we have tried to be careful this visit, and since she is still asymptomatic, we probably dodged the bullet this time.

No one else has been in the house.

Mildly :tfh: to me, but each must judge the risks for themselves: My wife and her best friend had been taking walks outside together, remaining 6 feet apart and from everyone else. Friend decided that since we let the daughter come home, no more walks together (even with social distancing) until 2 weeks after that. Whether it's 2 weeks from when the daughter got here, or 2 weeks from today when she leaves, unclear.

Just corrected by wife and daughter, even though they didn't see this post. Next potential visit is for the weekend 4 weeks from now. That would be after her 2 weeks on the job, 2 weeks at her home out only for essential shopping or maybe exercise walks, then possibly here for the weekend if still asymptomatic.

No, I'm not letting anyone else in my home right now.

Good point. Hmmm.

Your brother's concerns are valid
