The Great Quarantine and Lockdown

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Just so I NEVER forget..... As of April 4, 2020

Dalgona Coffee and Tik Tok became a thing.

Gas price is down to Php35.00

All schools abruptly moved online.

Self-distancing measures on the rise.

Tape on the floors at stores to help distance customers (6ft) from each other.

Restaurants closed, take out only.

Limited number of people inside stores.

Non-essential stores and businesses mandated closed.

Entire sports seasons cancelled.

Concerts, tours, festivals, entertainment events - cancelled.

Weddings, family celebrations, holiday gatherings, funerals- cancelled.

No masses, churches are closed.

No gatherings of 50 or more, then 20 or more, now 10 or less.

Children's outdoor play parks are closed.

"Flatten the curve" is a daily saying, along with "We are in this together," and "We heal as one".

This is the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic, declared March 11,2020

Why, you ask, do I write this status?

One day it will show up in my memory feed, and it will be a yearly reminder that life is precious and not to take the things we dearly love for granted.

We have so much!

Be thankful. Be grateful.

Be kind to each other - love one another - support everyone.

We are all one! ❤️
