Posted on 13 March 20 at 02:19So... where do I start?If you haven't been living under a rock lately, I'm pretty sure you've heard of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.In the United States, we've seen various video game-related events canceled, sporting events to happen without the fans, public gatherings of x amount of people banned, and even travel restrictions outside the United States.In addition to that, various federal, state, and local governments close or require employees to work from home.Here is the latest news from my job (in Maryland):Governor Larry Hogan and State Superintendent Dr. Karen Salmon announced today, March 12, that all Maryland public schools must close in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. In light of this announcement, all BCPS [Baltimore County Public Schools] schools will be closed from Monday, March 16, through Friday, March 27.All field trips and athletic events are canceled starting Friday, March 13, until further notice.Additional information will be provided to the community shortly. Please visit our Coronavirus webpage or www.bcps.org to stay up-to-date on the latest information.My job is with the safe transport of students to and from school. If the kids don't go to school, I don't report to work.The biggest question on everyone's mind is...- How will this affect my pay for the month of March? I have bills to pay just like everyone else.I'm a little frustrated and concerned.
