TV studios had been preparing for a work stoppage for months over the expiring WGA-AMPTP contract. In an ironic twist of fate, the stoppage came a little earlier, brought upon by a force nobody could’ve predicted.

Weeks? Months? Years? With some tests/studies suggesting most people do NOT gain immunity after infection and can immediately be re-infected,things looking worse. With NY stats suggesting 6.5% of deaths are in those under 50, things are looking worse. With some turnip level IQs suggesting we can get back to normal in a few weeks to the end of May, things are looking worse.

Break out those Gilligan Island DVDs and dream of what it would be like on a tropical island with Mary-Ann & Ginger ... or Mrs Howell if that floats your boat. Speaking of which ...

Those studies that people do not gain immunity are questioned by experts and will probably be false.

Yup, fingers crossed they're flawed and people, generally, gain immunity ... at least for a period of time.

People can't get immunity because the strain keeps mutating. As far as I understand they're trying now to predict the mutation.

The best immunity is to be an introvert or a misanthrope :D

Los Angeles extended their lockdown till the end of August so it's likely there won't be any significant production there for at least a few more months.

Now is a good time to be a content creator online with the increased boredom that people will experience at home without anything to watch.
