Work at Home Blog 3 with recent updates regarding COVID-19 and government sites you may wish to visit on a regular basis.
For the latest news, the latest information and the latest recommendations.
As of today, March 25th, and until April 13th, 2020, the Quebec Government has ordered the minimization of what has been studied and treated as non-priority services and activities. Businesses that, otherwise, are free to engage in teleworking and in e-commerce.
According to Quebec Premier François Legault and to his team, what is essential and what can stay open are teachers working online, infrastructure maintenance, sanitation, manufacturers of food and medical supplies, hotels, movers, restaurants offering takeout only, banking, public transportation and alcohol and cannabis stores (to avoid all kinds of exagerations and criminal activities).
Place des Festivals is located in the Quartier des Spectacles in Downtown Montreal. Place des Festivals is where a drive-thru clinic opened on Monday, March 23rd and where it attracted thousands of people the very first day it opened.
On its very first day, the clinic drew more than 3,600 individuals seeking COVID-19 testing, 2,172 were tested and 1,486 who did not meet the common symptoms for testing, that is fever, tiredness and dry cough, were turned away.
To be eligible for testing at this particular clinic, individuals must have travelled outside the country since March 1st, must have had symptoms during the last 14 days or, must have come into contact with someone who has contracted COVID-19.
Work at home blog 3 or not, I find it very, very difficult to concentrate. I listen to "Ici Radio Canada Première", a French network that broadcasts news and information all day long. 'Ici Radio Canada Première" being the French counterpart of "CBC Radio One".
Relatives and friends are OK, but... anything can happen. COVID-19 is a very scary, very stressing "coronavirus". There are so many Montrealers in so many difficult situations including the worst, being alone, being sick and not having enough money.
Our city, our province and our country are very aware, very present, very helpful, but there is a lot to do, mostly because COVID-19 is contagious, dangerous and deadly for some. Everybody MUST respect ALL the rules.
That said, this "work at home blog 3" is the last about COVID-19. From now on it will be about SBI! and about Montreal Kits (and a bit about COVID-19, I can't ignore it completely).
I wrote about the coronavirus because I needed to know more about the situation and then I shared my findings with you. We're in good hands, both Premiers, Mssrs. Trudeau and Legault have our confidence and our respect. What we have to do now is follow the rules, all the rules.
I've been introduced to SBI! once Site Build It! now Solo Build It! at some kind of a business meeting. Breakfast I think it was.
I was quite unsured of myself then and saw what was then Site Build It! as a way of doing something constructive and interesting while working from home and alone. In those days I was not very strong emotionally.
I already had a Bachelor Degree from HEC Montréal and, during the same period, I went back to school and earned a Master Degree in Public Administration.
The subject of my master's thesis is "Jumelages entre Montréal et autres grandes villes et métropoles à travers le monde". A subject that is also related to the present series of Montreal Kits.
Needless to say that I didn't have a happy childhood. I won't go into details but, what eventually became Solo Build It! (after having been the victim of an Internet fraud), also became my "solo" therapy.
Here I was, knowing absolutely nothing about websites and not following the SBI! Action Guide for which I paid for! Being emotionally "damaged" also means not letting anybody tell you what to do.
