In that scenario the one that has been tested positive will have infected the other 13 and therefore all can self isolate at work.
Just get the camps.

"The French prime minister announced the closure of cafes, restaurants and all public places “non-essential” to public life, including cinemas and discos, from midnight on Saturday . Edouard Philippe said: “We must absolutely limit movement, meetings and contacts.” But he allowed food shops, tobacconists, banks and public transport to remain open."

Yes, because when the world is haunted by a respiratory tract infection, we must still buy our Gallouise. Zoot Alloures! :D
Yeah, the shop that Tracie works in part-time is closing now until.... lord knows.

Our nearest neighbours have 2 kids who are now off school. She's a nurse, so she's needed badly, and hubby will have to take time off to look after the kids at home. He should get temporary indemnité de maladie. which is 67% of his pay (up to about 55 euros per day with kids). We all pay cotisations sociales contributions on earnings so this is exactly the kind of time to claim some of that back. We all watch the PM last night and it does feel like they are on top of this, to the extent that you can say that at all right now. At least the french health system is the best and always seems to have spare capacity - which it will need in the weeks to come.

As to the Tabacs staying open - It's bad enough taking away everyone's morning café grand créme, and their 2 hour resto, without also depriving them of their fags!

So, some of you may have heard on the news about Spain being on lockdown, but you probably think it means we simply can't leave the country. That couldn't be further from the truth. We are essentially under house arrest. We can only go out of the house for essential items. Here is a translation of the restrictions: INFORMATION

Due to the need to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus and the State of the Alarm declaration, citizens may only circulate on the public road, when it is essential, for the following activities:

a) Acquisition of food, pharmaceuticals and basic necessities.

b) Assistance to health facilities.

c) Travel to the workplace for employment, professional or business benefits.

d) Return to the place of habitual residence.

e) Assistance and care for minors, the elderly, dependents, people with disabilities or especially vulnerable people.

f) Travel to financial institutions.

g) Due to force majeure or due to need.

h) Any other activity of a similar nature duly justified.

The circulation of private vehicles on public roads will be allowed to carry out the above activities or for refueling at gas stations or gas stations.

Any person who contravenes these provisions will be the object of a complaint by the agents of the authority.

The fines for going out for any other reason than stated range from €300-€3000. Holland has just implemented the same rules, France seems to be just 24hrs behind.

Not looking very promising for my planned 55 day trip over to the UK on June 16 and then over on the EuroTunnel on the 19th to explore Europe! :roll:
