    Uh, yeah. Exactly.

    You expressed the opinion that "masks" are effective. The first picture is the most common one being worn. It's the type that is available. In the U.S. we barely have enough of the second type to supply our health care workers. They are not available to the general public. The first type is just something to do to make yourself feel better, or worse, something that makes you think you're protected when you're not and encourages you to not take more important precautions.

    I don't know the exact level of effectiveness, but masks are at least effective at capturing droplets, which is a main transmission route of coronavirus.

    If I'm gonna have to be in close contact with someone I'm at least gonna be wearing some sort of protection VS not having any protection at all.

    Something weird happened today, I suggested something to my boss that will reduce my working fortnight from 9.5 days to 4.5 reduce my hours to about 60 hours a fortnight and cost me no money and he actually liked it. Times are ****ing strange

    The beauty of being essential and irreplaceable at least in the short term.

    Yes. Apparently yogurt is considered food and food is considered important.

    That does make sense. Has your factory scaled back production in any way to limit the amount of workers?

    Speaking of essential industry: can you guys imagine what would happen in Netflix went down?

    just like yogurt, pacifiers are necessary

    Yep. It's in my post you quoted.
    Edit:. Actually to better answer your question, no we haven't scaled back production. Many of our managers and supervisors are working from home though and we have cancelled many projects so that R and D and contractors etc don't come to our plant. And of course pretty much all meetings have been cancelled and breaks and schedules have been changed

    Btw, though I obviously see food as important I don't think Dannon yogurt specifically is important and wouldn't be surprised if we got shutdown. I'm glad to still be able to go to work for the time being though.

    I also disagree! Cows are still making milk and people still need to eat. Yogurt and all dairy products are flying off the shelves. Your job is definitely essential. :)

    Your supervisors would like to know if you think Chiobani’s production is more or less essential than Dannon’s. Tia.
