It was actually my wife's idea. I'd gladly infect them.

Kidding.

I'd like to hear Ballin respond to this.

Not sure what this means? But I'm supposed to be in Mexico right now so fuck everything. Instead I wore a bathing suit around the house today and drank margaritas.

LOL 50/50 because I think you might really want to infect one parent and I have a half chance to know which one. Anyway I did a Mexican/Irish infusion dinner.

Yea even worse itís a preschool for kids with special needs so they all have their hands in and out of their mouths/noses all day and are constantly in contact with both me, the other teachers/TAs, and each other. Itís a joke that weíre still open.

They finally started putting together a plan for a potential 2 week close last Wednesday but said it wonít go into effect until someone at the school is infected.......because we should totally wait for it to spread through the school before closing.

My girlfriends aunt is a chief nursing officer for a large hospital in our area and she just got a call saying there’s going to be a call for a National
quarantine in the next 48 hours; I don’t know how reliable she is but it doesn’t sound like a joke

I don’t even know if I believe it so idk

It sounds possible with the restaurant and bar shut downs in the Midwest

This sounds like an outright rumor but OTOH I wouldnít be surprised if we did have a national quarantine within the week.

Information is good and you have a source. It just seems rumor like.

But Fauci (head doctor of the Coronavirus team) has called for one.

The economy is screwed either way. Trump looks stronger if he does it sooner rather than later.

I don't buy a full on quarantine. How on earth are you going to make sure poor people have food? Let alone passing conditional muster.

You'd be condemning a lot of people to starvation.

A suggested quarantine is different than an enforced quarantine. Suggest it, shut down entertainment businesses to not tempt people. But I agree, you still need to let people out to get food and essential needs.

In Italy they shut down everything but Grocery and Pharmacy, and allow 1 family member to go shopping at a time. People out wandering the streets are written tickets.

Washingtons King County is closing all bars, restaurants, gyms, and limiting gatherings to 50 people. We are heading towards an outright quarantine if something doesn't turn around soon.

Yeah, Italian style. You keep the essentials open. Everything else is shut down.
