The ‘Crisis’

Writes a friend:

Hi Lew,

My wife works at one of the biggest hospitals in [state]. She says they have not been busy during this “crisis”.  The hospital is unusually slow due to the crisis and the hospital is cutting hours of most employees because it is so slow.  My wife works in the lab (she would do testing on any normal flu test, but not for corona virus).  All lab personal are having their hours cut (from 40 to 32 or even 24 hours).  She is a full time employee and I don’t recall her having hours drastically cut like this before.
