We have a plant in PA also, assuming that will close with the plant in Belgium and Italy. Financials wont look good in the foreseeable future.

I'd suspect it will take years to recover. This will make the 08 bubble explosion look like Monopoly money.

Lack of income taxes, lack of sales tax, savings exploited, retirement accounts blown up, and on and on. The economic side of this might be more damaging than the virus.

Pretty heavy handed.


Pharmacies, medical offices, gas stations, grocery stores, and beer distributors to stay open, storm troopers heading to everyone else. Notice went out to sheriff's offices to prepare riot gear, and get ready for civil unrest, not sure if it's for looting, or for non-complaint folk, maybe both.

Shocked to see Child Care Services on that "No" list. How do they expect Dr.'s, firefighters, police, and military to go to work if they have child care issues?

Auto parts stores are open, car dealers are closed. What happens when an ER doctor crashes a car and needs a new one?

The questions about secondary effects are endless

I agree. This is looking like its going to be terrible. Things were going so good too.
