Close down all bars a resturaunts?, close theaters and all non essential businesses? - makes sense, until they still allow commercial passenger flights, people allowed to be in larger groups of ten in line at Walmart, the virus isnt a joke, but they way the leaders are handling it IS!! If you want to shut shit down to stop the virus- the you gotta shut everything down, with exception of police , fire, EMS, Hospitals, utility workers, etc anything else is just BS! I think most people have enough food to last them 2 months by how empty the grocery stores are, and most of them could stand to miss a few meals anyway!!!
