Self-quarantine, etc who is limiting themselves? (poll) [View all]

I have decided today that I'm dropping the hammer - 50 y/o autoimmune issues, and just not feeling very safe. I work from home anyway, kid is homeschooled. I have ONE dr appt I have to keep today, and then I am hitting the store and coming HOME indefinitely.

Living in ElDorado County CA, Tahoe region...LOTS of visitors from the Bay and abroad. ...and I was stupid and attended a concert Sunday night... not feeling sick, just worried now... I dont want to be a spreader either.
