Covid: Are you working?

Survey of boardsies re Covid job losses:

How many adults who usually do work paid work live in your house?

Are they still working as usual? On reduced hours? Not working but still being paid as usual? Not at all.

I'll go first:


One still full-time ( more hours than usual)
One self employed, getting next to no work at the moment.

I'm assuming this is for all boardsies not just those in Galway City!

Two working adults usually.

My partner has been working from home for about a month. Software company. Usual hours.
I am still going to work as normal (in fact busier). Healthcare professional

I was hoping to get a feel for work levels in Galway, but sure work level for people reading this forum is fine too. This is gut feel stuff, not science.

One full-time WFH already for years
One part-time (same hours) WFH first time.

Also managing course work for 2 teens is another job in itself.

Both still working full time, both working from home.

However, we have a young child and we have no childcare, so working a normal day while keeping a child happy is a challenge to say the least.

We were also 70% of the way through a new house build and that's stalled which is bringing its own worries.

Two. Both on leave this week (holiday booked but obviously cancelled). Both WFH next week but with 2 toddlers in the house too young to entertain themselves.... See how that goes!

One working full time, no change bar WFH full time rather than my usual mix of office and WFH.

One currently on leave/job hunting (unrelated to Covid-19).
