REDDING, Calif.- The coronavirus outbreak is pushing people to put their plans on hold.

For one elderly couple, they're missing out on important events. 

Married couple, Sue and Charlie Philpot have lived in Red Bluff for 20 years.

The Philpots tell Action News Now they had plans to go on a cruise to Alaska in May. However, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the trip was cancelled.

They also had plans to attend their grandaughter's graduation oversees, but that too, was cancelled.

Sue's husband, Charlie, has an underlying medical condition. She says because her husband is considered "high" risk, it's forced them to limit the number of times they go out.

Sue tells Action News Now their neighbors have been a huge help with getting them groceries. 

"We’re kind of stuck at home and can’t enjoy some of the things, but you know you have to take what life gives you and you only get one chance and you got to be happy," says Philpot.

Sue says her son was planning to come visit them for Easter, but that won't be able to happen anymore. 

For now, the Philpots, like many, are spending more time at home and going out only when necessary.

Thankfully our windy, fire danger weather pattern is coming to an end over northern California. The wind will decrease to lighter breezes late tonight through tomorrow, and our fire danger won't be quite as extreme going forward.
