Earlier of when schools get shut down, and employer tells me to. I'm assuming employer will fold before schools do, though.

If asked by the company to do so (i.e., on a voluntary basis), I'll do it.

If anyone in my family starts showing symptoms, I'll do it (already have permission from management to act in this fashion).

I I start showing symptoms, it's sick-leave for me.

I've been telecommuting 2-4 days a week for a few years. I'm in the office today for my only time this week, but it's a lot quieter than a normal Wednesday, so I'm assuming more people are reacting to the virus (but we also have a storm sitting on us this week, so that's probably a factor as well).

Same.

I'm in NYC and fully expect to be told to WFH by the end of this week. Next week at the latest. The train was noticeably less crowded today
