National travel has been cut off from my cities largest employer resulting in fewer hotel guests, so my breakfast sales to these few hotels is starting to show decline. That’s all so far but there is an uneasiness and uncertainty out there. This thing could cripple our industry fast. Imagine the whole supply chain rotting in warehouses? And how long or if certain industries will come back quickly? This could get really awful when our customers are closed and paychecks destroyed.

In California just wait and see what happens when the virus meets the homeless encampments in Los Angeles and San Fran. It's a potential tinder box for something akin to the Black Death in Central Europe during the 14th century, the spread of the bubonic plague. 

Lets not forget our former Governor Arnold the Terminator for budget cutting the state to death (literally) and creating this mass of homeless and their shiat that can now act as a conduit for a giant life threatening pandemic. He was just following his Nazi heritage.

Folks....…..keep in mind that so far this Flu season there have been over 20K deaths in the USA.  Do yourself a favor and unplug the internet, turn off cable news, and cancel your subscription to the daily fish wrapper.  Be sure to say a prayer for those that are ill and for those that have passed away.  Do all of the above and you'll probably feel better.

That is going to be a huge hit.

While what you’ve said here is certainly true and valid, the fact is this scare will impact the Foodservice industry. Therefor, it is worth discussing what the impact has been to date and any trends for the future. In the fairly rural area in which I live in western KY, community events are being cancelled that would bring 1,000 or more participants. We’ve seen school closures to allow kids to try to get well from the common flu. This has to impact foodservice!

What in the world is going on with you guys up in the Pacific Northwest? I think you are feeling what the rest of us will be feeling soon so any insight on how your warehouses are handling things would be great

I bet the NRA will get cancelled as well soon especially since it has visitors from
all over the world coming in to Chicago.

For the dim witted who seem to have come off a conveyor belt with millions of other defective nitwits who are all defective in exactly the same way almost like they've been infected by a virus. 




Mayors from across California meet with Gov. Newsom to work toward reducing homelessness
 
 
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) -- Mayors from 11 of California’s largest cities held a joint press conference Monday saying they support Governor Gavin Newsom’s call to use more state resources to reduce the number of homeless.

“After this coronavirus epidemic has come and gone, we will still face a crisis of homelessness,” said San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo.

“So this meeting was really a meeting between ourselves and the governor about homelessness and housing,” said Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs.

It did not take long for questions of coronavirus to arise, specifically how it might quickly spread amongst the homeless.

“I know amongst all mayors, we are concerned for all residents and that actually starts with our most vulnerable residents, that is our unsheltered people,” said Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf.

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg says he knows the virus could spread quicker in homeless communities.

“The coronavirus only reinforces the need to bring people indoors,” explained Steinberg. “The chance of the virus spreading when people are living out in the elements is undoubtedly greater.”

The virus spreading among the homeless is an issue Steinberg says he and the other mayors spoke with the governor about during their meeting.

Schaaf says her city of Oakland, where the Grand Princess cruise ship docked Monday, is already being proactive to prepare the homeless for potential outbreaks.

“We have actually paid for handwashing stations, port-a-potties, trash service. We have a request into our county government to try and match those investments,” explained Schaaf.

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer says his government is taking similar steps.

“The extra precautions that we’re taking in terms of not only hand washing stations, cleaning, but really education directly at all of our shelters. We’re in the process of doing that right now,” said Faulconer.

The mayors of both Sacramento and Stockton say their cities may soon follow suit.

“I think everyone, sheltered and non-sheltered, should be vigilant,” said Tubbs.

In addition to concerns surrounding the spread of coronavirus, the mayors spoke to the governor about how to best use state funds to help fight homelessness as a whole.
