Canada, too.
A clearly unhappy Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday said people defying advice to isolate themselves to fight a coronavirus outbreak should “go home and stay home” or face sanctions.

Washington State just got their stay at home orders this evening. All non-essential business closed. But not surprisingly the marijuana shops are considered "essential". We can still get groceries, go out for walks, take the family to the park to run around (but the playground equipment is closed), etc. but that is about it. ALL gatherings (including weddings and funerals) are banned. 2 weeks right now but that of course could change.

Texas lieutenant governor says grandparents are willing to risk dying from coronavirus to save economy

"The lieutenant governor of Texas thinks "lots of grandparents" may be willing to die of the coronavirus to stop a possible economic recession that could affect their grandchildren's lives."

"So I say, let's give this a few more days or weeks, but after that, let's go back to work and go back to living. Those who want to shelter in place can still do so. But we can't live with this uncertainty," Carlson read before asking Patrick to expound on his message.

"I'm not living in fear of COVID-19. What I'm living in fear of is what's happening to this country," Patrick prefaced his remarks. "No one reached out to me and said, 'As a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America, that all America loves, for your children and grandchildren?' And if that's the exchange, I'm all-in. And that doesn't make me noble or brave or anything like that."

That's just insane; it isn't even a valid argument.  Those nations who took the strongest actions the soonest will be bouncing back first.  The United States had over two months to prep.  The administration completely dropped the ball, now they are literally telling old people to die because they believe stock portfolios are worth more than human lives.

I like how the Italian mayors have had enough. We need ours to do the same. Lock down in Denmark was extended to after Easter April 13th..

Ummm, I think I pulled a hamstring. You guys go ahead.

"Those of us who are 70-plus, we’ll take care of ourselves. But don’t sacrifice the country."

>70-plus

That's right Republicans, kill off a big part of your core supporters right before the election.  Brilliant strategy.

These guys are a dumb as a sack of hammers.

The public just wants this to be over NOW. They're just telling them what we want to hear.

I'm watching the Fox News "town hall", Trump is pushing the "everybody needs to go back to work" narrative very hard.

The Mississippi Governor is refusing to do a shutdown.

As hard as they are pushing this, I don't know if their base is going to get on board with dying for the economy.
