You really can't protect people from their own stupidity...
One of the reasons for all the hype in the US media regarding COVID-19 is specifically for that targeting of young people who are not listening and are causing the virus to spread unnecessarily further as with the situation in Florida.
Luckily up here in New York, everyone is doing their job to stop this outbreak, even many of the young people I see are following the health guidelines.
But we still have a lot of very stupid people in the States who still believe Fox News is accurate reporting...

I am not trying to defend anyone or anything, I would only like everyone to consider several things:
- what freedoms are people willingly giving up during the Wuhan virus pandemic
- laws are being broken (like right to assembly, free speech etc)
- rights are being violated
- will we return to pre-pandemic life when this thing blows over?
It's one thing to make a party during a pandemic, and a completely different thing to sit in a park 5m (app 15ft) from the nearest person, and getting removed with an excuse: you are not jogging; and then accused of spreading the virus even you aren't infected. Even worse example is calling the police on a guy that's coughing, and it turned out the guy's a smoker, or even weirder, calling the police on the guy that was coughing cause a fly flew into the guy's mouth while yawning.
Who's more stupid, people that are making a party during a pandemic or people that blindly obey every government's decision is debatable.
All I am saying here is: think ahead, and be careful people, pandemic is not the only bad thing that's happening.
I am amazed to say that Neath Port Talbot council did just that between Monday and this morning - normally they leave it for six months so they can have nice big children of their own before they send a man with a bucket of tarmac ...

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
My current employer (for how long but that another issue!) is trying to move to having all 'stuff' online (well lets give them some credit!) GIT was used to track some files (not source code!) and now are we use Sharepoint, first thing is this right, I was fairly certain we shouldn't use GIT but is Sharepoint the right thing to use?
Well it's my role,
In my experience trying to leave stuff your doing in a goodish shape
Karma aside... that's the difference between professionals and [fill the gap with your favourite word here, I just want to keep it respectful].
You don't do your work well for them, you do it for yourself. They pay you for it until the last day.
Ethics or fairness about the redundant job... that's another topic.
But I do respect your position here.
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?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Well I have to admit, it's not my office thats caused it, it's the incompetance of those higher in the food chain, not knowing what or how we work. This has taught me a lesson though, take pride in what you personally do. I haven't been given the official chop yet, just notice. So the climate being what it is I am preparing for the worst. I think I would have left anyway, I wasn't really making use of the skills I have... Plus a comment from my employer saying I did shoddy work on my way out might not be nice!
My experience of SharePoint is that it is the storage equivalent of a Black Hole. Once a document has been saved, it passes some kind of Event Horizon and is lost for ever, I do not know how many hours I have spent looking for documents in it only to admit defeat and rewrite them from scratch.
