    A piece of trivia: "Thieves oil" was actually named for spice traders and merchants who became thieves when spice trading came to a halt due to the Black Plague. Hurting for money, these out-of-work spice traders began robbing the homes of those who had succumb to the plague. But, before entering their homes, they rubbed multiple oils & spices on them to neutralize the smell of the dead bodies. When they were caught, they were forced to give up the list of oils they used to fragrance themselves. And now, you know why it's called thieves oil. Oh, you'll find the list of oils may be slightly different depending on your source, as the thieves didn't all use the same oils. Lol.

    Here in Rio we are. Many of the lockdown-or-not decisions are being made at the local level (city and state.) I check my city government's website, corona virus section, for updates and details.

    Here in the city of Rio, all schools are closed. All non-essential businesses are also. Manufacturing is not, but they've instituted staggered opening times to cut down on the number of people on public transport at the usual rush hours. (The rapid transit bus system they built for the Olympics a few years ago is normally insanely packed for several hours in the morning and again in late afternoon and early evening.)

    My husband and I teach English privately, both in the student's home or office and online. As soon as they closed the schools, our non-online students pressed pause on their classes. When they started closing almost everything else, some of our online students, understandably concerned about their finances in these uncertain times, also pressed pause. Some are still taking classes. So the shutdown is affecting us pretty seriously. I cannot imagine how the average employee in a non-essential business is managing.
