What event in your life or in the news made you think "this is serious?"
Even though we had been talking about it at work and developing different work contingency plans, it really became a blip on my radar when SXSW was canceled on March 6th. Then, Sunday, March 15 is when I really started thinking "this is real". The previous week Italy had gone into lockdown due to the virus so the news output was really starting to increase. Sunday, March 15 I literally spent the entire day glued to the news trying to consume everything I could. Cancelation of conferences and travel were also COVID 19 "milestone" moments for me.
