Might as well get prepared.

Massachusetts is doing a partial shutdown as of this Friday.

That means no business after 9:30 pm.

Including casinos.

I don't see the point. While it's true Coronavirus comes from bats, it's NOT a vampire disease. It's just as deadly in the daytime.

When the roads are empty at 10 pm like it's 2 am.

The UK is gonna have a massive lockdown for a month starting Thursday, as if that wasn't long enough, they are starting to care about hospitals again which is odd since they're trying to get rid of them at the same time.

Casinos where I live started closing at 11 and then shutdown a week and a half later for min two weeks. Going to be closer to two months imo.

I just went two provinces over to grind cause I refuse to sit at home doing nothing.

Some believe illegals are worsening the covid spread. And that they refuse to goto hospitals until its really bad for fear of deportation.

I also believe another shutdown is coming.

Casinos really are about the worst place you can put yourself.

States with the least amount of illegals are being hammered by the virus

You seem to be coming around to the common sense position.

I worked a party last weekend with the condition I did not have to wear a mask. Nobody there had one, everyone enjoyed themselves. More and more people are realizing there is only so much you can do.

My position is either shut down all the way or none at all, not withstanding essential services.

Just shutting early in the evening doesn't cut it.

I don't think anyone supports a shutdown just like no one supports an evacuation from an oncoming natural disaster.

No one says, I love evacuations, best thing that ever happened. But when a fire, hurricane, tornado, etc approaches sometimes it's the best thing to save lives.

That's how people like myself feel about the shutdown. Don't want them but if it's necessary, let's get it done.

Nobody who lives in tornado country would say anything about evacuating for a tornado. You donít have time, you might just drive into it. You get in the basement.
