I have in the past worked from Home when I needed to work on some document. Never an issue.
So with school being closed in Germany, I decided to work from home and to maintain social distancing
Day 1 : Single Monitor (compared to 2+1) sucked. VPN connection Sucked more. Daughters Tik Toking was getting on my nerves
Day 2. Changed Wireless to Wired internet and still VPN sucked big time . Ban on tik tok lead to a very angry and bored teen which made me fear for my life.
Day 3 : Drove early to work . Still social distancing as 70% of workforce in Home. All issues of Day 1 and Day 2 resolved.

Australian TV soap Neighbours has announced it will not film this week as a precaution, after reports suggested a person working on the show had come into contact with someone who tested positive for Covid-19.

The only reason I know that show exists is i was looking for a TV program with a lot of seasons to do testing of my TMDB ("the movie database") library. It looked terrible, and the more i found out about it the more surprised i was that it is actually filmed, much less watched.
1) Don't go near YouTube ...
2) STAY OUT OF THE KITCHEN! If you want a coffee, make it, and go back to your desk ASAP. Lingering will mean you eat something because it's there and you're bored - and that's a killer for home working.
3) Try a video conference with work colleagues - see if they are in the same boat, and what solutions they have found.
4) Treat "work time" as an absolute - if you are normally there 9 - 1, half hour lunch, 1:30 - 5 then stick to it. If you start to eat into work time for stuff you want to do, it gets a lot harder to get back into it.
5) Take a 5 or 10 minute break every hour - CP is good - in an office there are always distractions, so you probably aren't staring at a screen for the whole 8 hour day. Your eyes, back, brain will thank you!
