When did you feel like the Coronavirus was on your doorstep?

I know we've had threads about whether you or someone you know has been infected, but I'm interested in hearing more about what made you feel like this was no longer something happening "over there" but something that was happening here, to you and yours. Could be personal experiences, something in the news, seeing a business shut down, whatever made this seem here and now.

I think for me it came in two stages. The first was when they closed the beaches and hiking trails. The second was when a coworker was diagnosed.
