I'm no longer going to update because there's simply no way to track all of the closures.  Please do continue posting updates as you collectively see/hear about them.
I'm adding various trackers for y'all to keep updated.

Updated, thanks!

North Fulton ARES held it's monthly meeting last night over via computer. The big club NFARL will hold it's meeting the same way next week. Hubby's company has instituted work from home if possible. Lucky he's worked from home for the last 25 years.

Government just restricted all access to Nursing Homes. NO VISITORS.
