According to a new poll, 87% of Americans are hunkering down and say they will continue to social distance or stay at home for all of April, regardless of whether or not it’s mandated by state or local municipalities.
Will be a tough call, one hand really want to support friends that work in the bar and restaurant industry. On the other, want public health to not be at risk.
Are there really people who think everything is going to go back to normal? Every office building saving millions on electricity, internet, maintenance, and facilities isn't going to suddenly tell their stay-at-home workers to tear down their home offices once the virus is gone. A lot of societal changes aren't going back, even after this is over.
It's a poll.
I wouldn't stay at home, but I can continue to work at home 9/10 days. There are some stores I need to hit. Still continue to do take-out, rather than eat-in. Visit my parents, make sure that they are taken care of. Half-normal.
Wish there was some way to keep those idiots from States that are not following any stay-at-home suggestions out of California. We are seeing results by our actions, not seeing huge death tolls, and our emergency rooms and hospitals flooded with sick people like other States are experiencing. There are a lot of things we might not like to about Governor Newsom, but he made the right decision when he issued the stay-at-home order. I do so emphasize with those who have lost their jobs, and pray it will be temporary, but it's better to be safe and alive and have our families still alive. I can't even imagine the grief the families in New York City are feeling at this time or how tired and scared all medical and first responders are feeling. Many will experience extreme PTSD when this finally ends. We must keep them in our prayers.
I love how the media is slowing down its coverage as if this pandemic is subsiding lol it's still spreading nonetheless
Depends. I already work in an essential job that puts me in contact with lots and lots of people. I've already gone out to visit friends. I'd probably see my friends more often if restrictions were lifted.
I'll be one of them.
