I think it will be June in the absolute best case scenario.

How do you define when something is over? I think by the end of May most businesses will be back open again in places where they have been forced to close.

As far as the virus cases, it won't be over until they have a vaccine, and/or enough people have it and have survived it to get to herd immunity. But the emergency should be over once they crest and hit a couple more peaks on the down side, on their way to getting cases below an unmanageable level. So I'm guessing 7-9 months, think I picked November for the resumption of near-normal activity.

I sure hope your guess is correct. I think CDC Director Anthony Fauci says 12 to 18 months.

I also hope we have a very, VERY quiet hurricane season.

When you can move about freely without fear. We do not need to have herd immunity completely. When the point comes the cases are hard to come by, mass testing can trace the loose infections. Even having security turning away people with fevers would be good. I'm a little mentally drained right now, but it definitely can be done differently than what we're doing. Anyone who wants to google search South Korea, Singapore and maybe Japan can see what I'm talking about.

Plus only the elderly over 50 need social distancing. They can stay in their houses and everyone else can go outside, work, etc. They can wear the masks if there aren't enough. If they happen to have children or people under 50 living with them, the young in the family should stay home.

They had schools open in those other Asian countries and they have it under control. A factor could be the low numbers of children they have per adult.

I think the question is too vague.

The real question is when will business that is closed by government order be allowed to reopen.

BBB said November for normalcy. Does that mean all Vegas casinos will reopen in November? Disneyland and other amusement parks? Broadway?

And of they open earlier what will they do during the non-normal period that's different from before.

I don't know what this country will look like economically if the closures end in November but that's not gonna be pretty
