No ideas.
One reality
Lose my mind.
Stuck in a basement. Needed to buy a house a long time ago but havnt found 1 yet.
If I can barely last a shabbos from claustrophobia now then how am I getting thru 3 day yt? Honestly seems impossible and im terrified.

I'm worried about my MIL who is alone. She did not handle shabbos well. I am hoping we're well and she can drive to us for Pesach iyh. I'm worried they will not be allowing people in/ out ny nj in a week though.

Beezras Hashem we will all be healthy and able to take a walk at least once a day. I bought some new books a while ago that I will be pulling out. Also planning on letting each child earn a new toy or game by cleaning for pesach with me. Hashem will give us strength Smile My heart really goes out to those in more difficult situations: anyone who is elderly, alone, sick, worried about hospitalized family members, etc.

At least I have others.

My neighbor lives all alone. Will spend Seder, 3 days pesach all alone. With her kids in town. It breaks my heart.
She won’t even come to door on Shabbos for me to check on her Sad.

Another is a single mother and her only child. Also totally isolated due to health concerns. Hopefully they make it out okay after it just being themselves for so long.

DH is super sick now and not careful with spreading germs. At this rate I need a huge miracle I shouldn't contract the virus rendering me, a mom of plenty bh, incapacitated through yom tov.

Rabbanim EVERYWHERE are saying shelter in place, don't even visit local family. And of course don't drive intercommunity or interstate. I'm really sorry. They are talking about extenuating circumstances, where the potential guests and hosts should quarantine for 14 days and then they can host, but the guest shouldn't go anywhere else. Hugs!

Refuah shleima to your husband! I know with corona who have a day or two of fever, and while they're feeling a little run down, are able to function pretty well. I hope noone gets it but IyH by whoever does.

Yes, pinkfridge, I know. Thats exactly my concern. She is losing touch and becoming a bit unwell from being alone. She is not exceedingly old, but to be completely alone for a 3 day yom tov is a stress I dont think she can handle. During the week, we call and take turns talking but yomtov will be very hard. I think we will need to get her rabbi involved.
I'm not saying this lightly. This is why I am worried.

Hatzlacha. It sounds like you will be the exceptions, and I wish you all good health to pull it off.
