After waiting for the flights and other forms of transport across China to be suspended, the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office announce, hey, its time to leave folks:

For better or worse, I have decided to stay and thankfully did not wait for the UK government to do my thinking for me. Boris's Brexit Britain: what a nightmare of complacency.

That's cool. When are you planning to get a haircut?

It's a practical question. The virus spreads via casual contact. I guess it could become a joke at some point.
Not for the barbers, though Rolling Eyes

Does OP have a beard or something. I am missing the point here. It spreads through body fluid, not casual contact (not sure what that is so maybe my statement is wrong). Anyway, you get someone else's juices in your body (eyes, mouth, nose, anus) and you can get it. This is why I am confused about the hair comment.

"Apart from handwashing, keeping a distance of 6 feet from sick people, covering your cough, avoiding touching your face with your hands, and wearing a mask when you are sick can help stop the spread of infectious diseases of all kinds, and this novel coronavirus in particular."

Haha, with the mention of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, I immediately thought of Boris Johnson and that mop top of his and thought it was a question for him--"Boris, Baby, when are you planning to get a haircut?"

But I definitely see the point and actually thought about that: if I return to Beijing, I will need to get a haircut soon, but will probably have to stay away from my barber for a while and grow a Boris Johnson mop top of my own.

Warm regards,
