I've been working part-time. I go from the parking lot straight to my office, close the door, sit there alone all day, and then straight back to the parking lot at the end of the day. I suspect a state-wide or at least city-wide shutdown is coming in the next week or so, anyway. If it doesn't then I probably will call up and say, "See you in a few months."

That's the scary thing, you walking to your office and out the door is where all the risk is. Wrap your face in 5 tshirts or a scarf.

Does long grass facilitate the spread of Coronavirus? If so, that would explain why the Mexicans are out in full force mowing lawns today.

I'm not sure. I've never tried long grass, but if this drought keeps up, I'll smoke anything.

I live in Michigan. We have an stay at home order starting tonight until April 13th.

Id be interested to know how this March 31st idea would work here...



According to the guidelines I can take
walks, go to the grocery store and
pharmacy, visit sick friends, go to work
in a ton of different categories, go to
fast food drive thru's. Sounds almost
normal to me.

"Reopen".... Hah!

We haven't even STARTED dealing with this in Oklahoma yet. .



Nobody wanted to live in OK, it's
why we sent all the Indians there.
It's why we waited till 1907 to
make it a state. Now even the
virus won't go there.

Maybe at some point, everyone under 45 allowed out, over 45 or with health conditions stay in homes. Every week or 2, the age goes up 7 years. Then eventually cases small enough no overloading. Oh, and when you go out, you have to kiss 7 random strangers. Lol. Something like this could work if it wasn't unconstitutional.



Why would it be safe or healthy or a good idea for those under 45 to start going back to normal and begin spreading this amongst themselves? And it would most likely spread even faster than its happened during the restrictions and quarantine

It's quite possible that we'll start to see a reduction in the rate of new cases, people will jump to the conclusion that hat things are almost back to normal and then we'll ruin it by stopping the practice of social distancing/shut downs.

If people follow the simplest requirements now, and keep following them, fewer will have any need for more severe measures.

I saw a report in Italy where one official was saying if people kept going out for no reason he was sending officials with flamethrowers. (probably hyperbole)

I think that's a big if. You see the pictures of people out by the hundreds in Florida and California at the beaches?
