So, our Gov. is opening up stores, barber shops, nail salons, Restaurants. etc. Are YOU going out

right away? I'm not. I don't think anybody really knows where this virus is, or who has it. I'm sticking in the house for a while and watch to see what happens.

2. I no longer live in GA, if I did, nope would not be doing it. I was getting my nails

done once a month. Won't be doing that when we reopen in FL. I'll learn to do them myself.

3. Hell No...

only go for groceries once every week or so because I have to, and hate it....mask and gloves at lower traffic times. I just learned today my neighbor three apts down (I live in a senior 6 plex with outside entrances and small shared porches) had the virus clear back in Jan with pneumonia (although not hospitalized). She was out walking her dog and we were about 15 feet apart, made me nervous even though she said she is totally recovered... Oh, I don't live in GA but if I did,,,I won't go out here in KS either.

4. This is the end of April. If sshe had it back in Jan. she's been over it for a long time. I'm

surprised she didn't let the other residents know about it back in Jan/Feb. That would hvae been the thoughtful thing to do. Since you build up an imunity to it once you've had it, she's one of the safest people for you to be around now.

6. I think she didn't know what she had

it was January...she probably thought she had the flu...my grandson was in New York in early January...a couple of days later he got really sick..high fever, dry hacking cough, no taste and smell...he had it all..and he though it was the flu...

10. Like another poster said,

I'm not sure she knew what she had (although she did say she tested positive for Covid). I knew she was ill back then but all I heard around the complex was pneumonia. Really sweet lady, glad she made it...

8. No. Since Kemp is incapable of doing anything right

I'll wait as long as need be to resume normal activities. I can't even imagine going to the gym under these circumstances, let alone a barber/beauty shop.

9. Fuck no.

We get groceries via curbside pickup and a few other absolute essentials shipped to the house. Other than that, we're not going out, period.

I'm not letting a numbnuts like Kemp make life-and-death decisions for me. He can't even PRONOUNCE COVID. He was the genius who said he had no idea it could be spread by asymptomatic people -- after this was known and widely discussed for weeks and weeks.

I feel very bad for people in service occupations who will be forced to go back to work under these conditions. I hope no businesses I've frequented in the past will cave in to this winger batshittery. Like I said in another thread, any hair salon owner who forces their people back to work when we've still got a raging epidemic is on my shitlist forever, and I'll badmouth them until I'm cold in the grave.

11. Doubt it.

It's a long way to Georgia.


I wouldn't even if I lived there.

12. I don't think the public will cooperate. I ask my neighbor if the Prez opned everything up tomorrow

would she go out and about like normal. She said NO! Wait to see when DT gets all his Pub Governors to reopen their States and few people go back to normal. He seems to think the economy & life in general will instantly go back to normal so he can go back to touting the great economy he's responsible for so everybody has to re-elect him in Nov.

14. Unpopular opinion

But, yes, I'm going out. I'm not going to be reckless, and I will keep my social distancing, but it's time, at least for me. Those at high risk should stay home. Those that are not can choose to assume the risk and keep the economy running so that we can afford to support those at risk.

There is also a huge risk of death from other causes if the economy plunges into a depression. Poverty, homelessness, depression, loss of medical coverage, break up of marriages. There are unintended consequences to the actions we have taken.

15. What do you plan to do?

Go to a restaurant?

I can't think of anything I want to do that I can't do now. I don't belong to a gym, I pretty much hate shopping, and I have more crap on my dvr that I can possibly watch any time soon.

Not judging. Just wondering what it is people want to do. Work? Bowl? Get a haircut?
