Time to Settle In
Assuming you have been following our advice for these past two months, you should be safely tucked away somewhere, with enough everyday supplies to last quite a few more weeks. If not, we have some strategies for you below.
As for us, we have hunkered down in our Greenwich HQ, at least until May. Given the severity of the spread in NYC and surrounding areas, I can't image things will have started to calm down before then.
Assuming we are still tracking about 2-3 weeks behind Italy, that would put our peak in the NE around mid-April, but remember that Italy put the entire country on "lock down" back on March 9th, and are just now starting to see the daily new case numbers just begin to slow down.
Unfortunately, the US Fed Govt still hasn't put our entire nation on a shelter in place strategy yet, and in fact there is even talk about trying to loosen what is in place by April 12th. If so, I suspect that this pandemic will go longer and harder for us than its current projected trajectory, so stay tuned to the news (but not too much).
Lastly, if you have been sheltering at home and vastly limiting your exposure to other humans as much as possible, your risk of catching COVID-19 should be low. If you are concerned that you or a loved one might have it, this is a great resource to try to determine that. If you aren't feeling well and have any worries about it, your health insurance company probably has a telemedicine service to consult with a doctor remotely (or call your personal doctor).
