Oh... an additional thought.
Maybe the you being a long member here (and indirectly having a high reputation) is having something to do that you are not getting directly nuked for your insults. But not exactly because of your reputation but maybe because we think we know you, we usually see that you are not a bad guy and we "guess" that you are pretty stressed by the situation at the moment...
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
They're in a terrible spot, but it all reminds me of the early stages of Afghanistan/Iraq.
I was living in West Virginia at the time - and it was very common for both parents to be in the army reserves. They'd go for their training, but they would also go for that check they kept whilst in the reserves. Traditionally, easy money.
Then they started being mobilized - and started whining - especially when "Mom" and "Dad" were both called up. Well - there is one question I have to ask - why did you both join if you both weren't expecting to be treated like, well, members of the army reserve and possibly be mobilized? Was the easy money check all you were interested in or was it serving the country?
I won't for them and give an answer - but it does point out that when you take a job you should consider what happens if things go to the extreme scenarios. Don't join the army if you don't want to go to war; don't go into the medical field if you don't want to be around sick people. Yes - both of these can find themselves in a bad state if their luck doesn't hold out.
Finally - I'm not saying these people aren't working their asses off - and they are at a risk I would not take - but remember: this is what they signed up for . . . unless they were only in it for the money, and in that case, my sympathy wares thing.
Well I recommend 20 ft. Because if you are within 6 ft of me when I cough, in an enclosed environment, then you are screwed. On the other hand; I am not infected with anything, so you're good.
All I care about is that they delivered hotdog buns, but no hotdogs. I can not get hotdogs deliver from any source, to I guess I am stuck with a mustard and relish sandwich (bun).

Whoever said one person can't change the world never ate an undercooked bat.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
