Mine is but it has more to do with uber pro than Corona virus. However the big cruise season is in a few weeks and involved families with kids and grandparents when school spring break starts.

They just shut down in-person classes today at Ohio State and cancelled the Arnold Competition last weekend. Business sucked on what was one of the busiest weekends of the year and now no classes will kill business. Uber is done here for awhile.

I'll be saving money in gas, not having to drive into work. But still getting paid working from home.

I'm way better off for that.

Problem is I planned to take 2 weeks off my day job, collect vacation check and uber morning until night to earn extra money. But wont be ubering for a long time now. Makes me sad because I enjoy ubering from time to time.

This weekend is when it really hit my town. Our demographics break down like this:

Tourists: 40%
Conference attendees: 20%
Military 20%
Students: 10%
Locals: 10%

Only had one or two tourist fares this weekend. All the schools except military closed this week. Conferences are shot.

Still managed to hit my mid-tier daily goal each of the two days I drive ($100, $150, $200). Perhaps because there are fewer drivers on the road? Next week may be different.

Feeling a lot more that all these shutdowns are an over-reaction. In my view our local military school has it about right.... keep classes open but take precautions. Of course in the army they can just order you what to do (cover your cough, block your sneeze, wash your hands), and if you don't do it punishment is ready at hand. Given the populace I see out there every day, people texting in their laps while driving, men peeing on the toilet seat in public restrooms, etc., perhaps the only option really is to simply shut it down.
