No general quarantine/curfew yet. Might happen soon though.

How is it for you?

Might look a bit like this I suppose:

and of course everyone goes to work like usual and commutes 100+ kilometers every day through half the state like usual, because somehow the virus doesn't infect and spread via people who are working (or something) because "muh economy!!!"

Well, if people aren't allowed to work there won't be any food on the shelves, so people will die, right?

Yes, they all need to work, so everyone can die with food on their tables! 🤪

We (Bavaria) just got curfew'd! Luckily, going out for the essentials includes individual sport and leisure, aka EUC riding:D (just no group rides allowed....)

Also allowed is visiting partners:facepalm:, and of course everyone goes to work like usual and commutes 100+ kilometers every day through half the state like usual, because somehow the virus doesn't infect and spread via people who are working (or something) because "muh economy!!!":facepalm::facepalm::facepalm: But hey, at least the finally closed all in-restaurant tables instead of keeping the restaurants open during lunch time (because, again, the virus doesn't infect people who are working, apparently, and they need somewhere to eat, right?:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:).

This  is going to last forever with this retarded pseudo-quarantine. Could be over in 2 weeks with a real quarantine.

Spain reacting faster than Germany? This really is the end of the world then! :roflmao:

The entire state of California is now in lock-down. 40-million people. Can only go outside for food, etc. And it's open ended - until "they" say it's over.

I suspect the economic damage is going to be much worse than the virus.

 

https://www.newsweek.com/california-worlds-biggest-economy-lockdown-governor-orders-residents-stay-home-1493352

"

The order, which Newsom calls a "safer-at-home" order, is mandatory and will make the vast majority of the the state's almost 40 million residents stay self-isolated in their homes. Residents will be able to leave their homes for exercise and for essential needs.

All non-essential businesses will also close; grocery stores, pharmacies and banks, among others, will stay open. Some restaurants will also stay open, however, they will be delivery or take-out only. Before Newsom's order, a number of counties—including Los Angeles County—issued similar directives.

Newsom also said that the National Guard would help with the distribution of food, acting in a "purely humanitarian" manner. California will also partner with the social media platform NextDoor so citizens can check in with neighbors during the lockdown.

"This is a moment we need to make tough decisions," Newsom said. "We need to recognize reality."

The order comes into effect Thursday, until further notice. Violations of the order are punishable as a misdemeanor. The maximum punishment would be a fine of $1,000 or no more than six months in prison, but Newsom says he does not plan to have police enforce the order."
 

 

Keep "exercising" Marty!

@travsformation @Marty Backe respectively: are non-essential workplaces closed?

Define non-essential :roflmao:

Restaurants are closed (only takeaway and delivery). Malls are closed (unless they sell food). Clothing stores and shoe shops are closed. Tobacco shops are legally allowed to stay open. So are hairdressers.

What shocked me is that they asked me for the receipt for what I'd bought

And they didn’t say anything about your EUC?! Or were you on foot?

With the first SARS outbreak it was. So I believe you are right and I am afraid it will be far worse than back then. 😢

. It was very different to experience it from street level, in motion, and see it span across the whole city, as opposed to from my balcony, seeing only the neighbors across the street.

Had to share:

Thanks for sharing! This is as encouraging as it is frightening. I will share your clip with as many of my friends as I can reach, if you don’t mind. 
in Japan it still looks like this in all major cities:

100% of Republican elected officials turned Socialist over this week. That's Socialist with a capital "S", and I was puzzled as to why.

This is the reason why...

Last Monday, Colorado had 400 people apply for unemployment insurance. This Tuesday: 6,800. California has seen its daily filings jump from 2,000 to 80,000. Oregon went from 800 to 18,000. In Connecticut, nearly 2 percent of the state’s workers declared that they were newly jobless on a single day. Many other states are reporting the same kinds of figures.

I was on my wheel. We're in a bit of a grey area here at the moment...the only good thing about the coronavirus being that my EUC is the last of their concerns (if only I could ride it without needing some form of written proof that it's justified)

Be careful with opening that "box".... it's a very polarizing subject whenever it comes up. I see no point in politicizing this thread, I personally feel now is a time for togetherness, not for friction and division :)

Yikes...those agglomerations of people... :facepalm:

Yeah, it's eerie to see the streets so empty, but comforting to see people and authorities alike taking the issue seriously (not to mention people's willingness to make the best out of a good situation). Of course, feel free to share! It would be great if the initiative were to spread!

until you see what's happening in italy, last 24hours: +600 dead.

In italy, they no longer resuscitate infected people older than 65.

Doctors have to choose who dies and who lives.

Maybe....but profit don't help those that die.

Those who live can rebuild. Yes I know these are grim words. 

But the capital of China do not look like this for fun.

Yet in one of most modern hospitals in the world in Italy many people die but a city in Italy surrounded but hard infected communities have managr to stay clear of infection for 3 weeks by doi g the right measures. 

No being in a high risk group do not mean you win the lottery against the virus. And even if you do beat it some people have lost as much as 30% lung capacity. 

The economic impact of that can be devastating. This is not just the other side of the world problem. It is more or less in every once backyard now.

I do not like the news you posted, but the fact that you post is about none of us want to be in that situation.

I have been working from home the past week. We ate not on hard forced lockdown yet. Yet this is what we do to hopeful break the new infection curve and deathtolls.
