Everyone OK out there in the deep code woods? Kayaker is likely out there paddling up a stream, hopefully watching for bears, but is everyone else getting through this covid thing OK?

Talked to an old guy recently, in his 90s, who is struggling a bit to cope. The lockdown has prevented him socializing and one has to wonder about the other side of this social distancing thing. Social distancing is aimed in a way to protect the elderly but have we considered the opposite effect on the elderly of leaving them feeling isolated? Depression and loneliness could sap the will of the elderly to carry on.
