Society has been pretty much shut down due to the coronavirus and its fast-paced spread across the world.
But how is it impacting Jim Cramer?

So, before I ask you what's top of mind for you this morning, I do want to ask you. What have you had to do to make changes to adapt to the coronavirus and its impact on us?
That's a great question. And, okay, so here's some of the things that we've done. I'm separated from my wife and my kids. They're going to the beach house. Fortunate enough to have a beach house. Didn't mean to drop that. I'm staying in New Jersey. I think it's just difficult. Dr. Fauci has mentioned over and over again.

And then yesterday CNBC built a very nice home office, that I think is a little like this, so I can use in the event that things really get shut down. And I see you're at home.
So those are the changes I've made. And the changes are depressing. I'm not yet at the stage where I'm in the Underground, sleeping, as the Germans are bombing us, but I'm a little unmoored, like everybody else.
