Corona Virus Update

Yes I’m safe and yes I’m healthy. 新コロナウイルス (Shin koronauirusu) (New Corona Virus) has been a thing in Japan long before it hit Europe or America. Its definitely a big deal here. At my company we have been working from home since mid February. 東京 (Tōkyō) is not shut down like many other cities are… yet. But things are definitely slower. 小池さん (Koike-san) the Governor of Tokyo is now warning people to stay home or possibly face a total shutdown like the rest of the world.

But for now I am mostly taking care of my plants and working from home. You can see my work from home set up and view below. I occasionally go out, I just always avoid rush hour trains. If its not raining, I sometimes even ride my bike to the office. I always wear my mask and wash my hands. Most restaurants and shops have a bottle of hand sanitizer at the front and I also carry my own alcohol wipes just in case. In general, it has not been so bad here and I’m hoping that things are going to stay calm in Tokyo.
