I'd be tempted to buy a whole load of external foam windshields (if they make them for your mics) and swap those over after each use. You can wash/disinfect and change those a lot easier than the wire grilles & internal foam.

Funny enough (not) since the football has been cancelled I've been inundated with calls (x4) to put some tunes on.

The world is nuts.

Save your money. Here in New York bars, clubs, show, theaters all are shut.

Where I live, schools are out until April 13. I'm currently working for a bank and as a senior leadership member am watching people grappling with some damn hard problems.

Best thing is to reduce the attack surface and just stay home for a couple of weeks. No machismo needed.

Take my advice, I'm not using it.

I figured I might have a 1-2 weeks, turned out it was 1-2 days... oh well, least I’ll know what to do the moment things start up again. Temporarily laid off and just had to message my team of freelancers to say no work available for the foreseeable.

Plenty of people on my socials in way worse predicaments, so not panicking until the money runs out.

Take care everyone!

Sorry to hear that fella, things are happening way faster than a lot of people (and governments) expected. Hope things pan out for you.
