This is unchartered territory. You have to take it day by day - only way you can get through this with some semblance of sanity.

If you think people in this thread are super paranoid I fear for you and yours. Might want to start paying attention to what is happening in the world you are inhabiting.

California stay at home order to fight coronavirus doesn’t replace stricter local rules

Los Angeles freeways have seen far less traffic than usual as the coronavirus is keeping people inside.

SACRAMENTO —  

After a day of confusion about the reach of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s historic executive order telling residents to remain at home to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, the state announced that more stringent sets of mandatory restrictions implemented by some California counties and cities will remain in place.

“This is a statewide order. Depending on the conditions in their area, local officials may enforce stricter public health orders. But they may not loosen the state’s order,” state health officials said in a statement released late Friday night.

The governor’s stay-at-home order will remain in effect until “further notice” and could be changed as conditions warrant, the statement said. Issued under broad powers granted to the governor in the state’s Emergency Services Act, Newsom’s executive order is enforceable by law.

Anyone who violates the order could be charged with a misdemeanor, but Newsom said that he did not believe that would be necessary.

The Newsom administration also released a 14-page report explaining which businesses and workers are considered essential and exempt from the stay-at-home order, as well as more detail about personal activities that are allowed and prohibited.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom provides guidelines for essential workers

March 21, 2020

Businesses deemed essential and remaining open include gas stations, pharmacies, grocery stores, farmers’ markets, food banks, convenience stores, take-out and delivery restaurants, banks and laundromats. Those that must close include dine-in-only restaurants, movie theaters and entertainment venues, gyms and fitness studios and hair and nail salons.

Walking the dog and going on hikes are allowed, but camping at state parks is not. Going to the doctor and pharmacy is allowed, but visiting relatives in the hospital or nursing home is not — with some exceptions, such as when a relative is near death.

ADVERTISEMENT

Californians “should at all times practice social distancing,” keeping at least six feet away from others when performing necessary activities, the order states.

“You can still take your kids outside, practicing common sense and social distancing. You can still walk your dog,” Newsom said on Thursday.

Before the governor’s order was put in place late Thursday, Newsom had only issued recommendations over the last week asking all residents to social distance, those 65 and older to remain at home, and bars, restaurant dining rooms and other types of businesses to shutter — demonstrating a deliberately light touch that some described as the governor easing Californians into a new way of life in preparation for more severe restrictions.

At the same time, dozens of counties inundated with COVID-19 cases went a step further and adopted mandatory requirements to slow the spread of the virus within their jurisdictions.

By midday Friday, counties were eagerly awaiting new guidance from the governor’s office to help them understand how to implement his new restrictions and whether their own orders would remain in place.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stay at home order to fight coronavirus pandemic

March 21, 2020

“There’s certainly questions,” said Paul A. Smith, vice president of governmental affairs for the Rural County Representatives of California. “What’s the role of front-line law enforcement? What’s the role of Alcoholic Beverage Control if we’re dealing with bars and taverns? How does the partnership between state and local government work?”

Smith said the lack of clarity wasn’t surprising in the middle of a crisis that neither the governor nor county leaders have contended with before.

“We have to understand that this is incredibly unprecedented,” Smith said. “We’re making massive public policy decisions and you can’t just cross every ‘T’ and dot every “I’ as we’re responding to a pandemic. We’re flying the plane as we build it, but at the same time, I think we’re going to get there.”

In Orange County, confusion over the regulations has been so widespread — with some community members questioning whether they’re permitted to go outside — that the county has staffed a hotline to respond to residents’ queries.

On Tuesday, the county’s healthcare agency first issued an order prohibiting public and private gatherings of any size, including at places of business, outside a single household. Some residents interpreted it to mean that Orange County was implementing a lockdown similar to strict stay at home orders issued by several Bay Area counties.

County officials clarified the order that night, noting that it was not a lockdown and some businesses should remain open. They followed up by issuing an amended order a day later that walked back the ban on gatherings.

On Thursday, the situation changed again when Newsom ordered all Californians to stay at home, marking the first mandatory restrictions placed on the lives of all 40 million residents in the state.

In enforcing the governor’s order, Orange County Sheriff’s Department officials have encouraged deputies to take an educational approach — reminding people of the restrictions — before issuing citations, said Carrie Braun, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Department.

“We’re seeing all of this unfold in real time, but that’s not necessarily the case for the rest of the community,” she said.

Dr. Barbara Ferrer, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said the county’s directive and Newsom’s order are “generally in agreement” on which businesses and activities are considered essential.

ADVERTISEMENT

“Where there are nuances, we’re working with the governor’s office for clarification and we hope to be able to rapidly reconcile any elements that are unclear,” Ferrer said Friday. “This may include minor revisions in the county health officer’s order in the days ahead.”

The additional details on jobs deemed essential should bring relief to business owners across the state, some of whom were unsure whether they were exempt from closure under the governor’s order.

Times staff writers John Myers and Matt Stiles contributed to this report.

I'm not paranoid but after this I will be better at hygiene. I already socially distance when I'm out when I see someone may have a cold, a habit I got from having to do that through chemo. I don't plan on isolating after we've been given the clear unless I have a nasty something.

I didn't think it was that big a deal.  I went to the food store today, but that was for groceries for us and an elderly neighbor.  I also stopped at the Ace Hardware store to pick up something to fix our back door screen--need to take on some home improvement projects so I don't lose my mind here, make the most of this indoor time.  I maintained social distance and tried to stay away from everyone.  Yesterday my eldest and I went on a bike ride, we stopped at the Dunkin Donuts and while she waited outside with our bikes, I ran in, stayed away from everyone as much as I could, and picked up 3 donuts for the kids.  

Are those risky behaviors?  I don't know.  I mean, if I'm going to have to go out and make some transactions here and there anyway, as long as I stay away from close contact with anyone, use the wipes/wash my hands like crazy when I get home, I feel like it's OK.

I don't think it's fair to go bananas on the guy for getting a coffee.

Did you Clorox wipe the donuts before you ate them?

That's where I've failed. We had multiple supply runs in the last couple of weeks but I didn't wipe anything down. Wouldn't know where to begin on some of it. Hope that is overkill.

I'm following the guidance on the consumer reports link someone posted in here about washing everything from the grocery store before putting it away but leaving things that can't be washed in our back room. 

We're able to go a month without leaving the house but we'll still go the farmers market for fresh fruits and veggies. They'll be washed at home of course. 

I am 100% ok with everyone thinking I'm crazy or going overboard if it prevents me and my family from having to deal with this.

Thanks, good info.

It still does make me wonder if there's anything a little different about India that's worth investigation to possibly gain some useful insight from.

To be honest there are a lot of countries with unusual stats.  I’d love to fully understand what’s happening in Germany, Japan, India etc.  
 

There could be a number of reasons why it hasn’t exploded there yet but it would be nice to have a definite answer.

Interesting article with data backing it up.

I've played golf just about every day last few weeks. We leave the flag sticks in while putting, carts are wiped down before play. We wash our hands before and after playing, and don't touch our face. Its great to get outside and enjoy the weather instead of being holed up all day.

At this rate, we will spend more money on “shelter-in-place” than if we completely rebuilt our acute care and emergency capacity.

Even when we looked at households, we did not find a single example of a child bringing the infection into the household and transmitting to the parents. It was the other way around. And the children tend to have a mild disease

These two things make perfect sense to me.

Maryland, where I live, is rumored to be "shutting down" on Monday. I want to order a generator through Amazon but it won't get here until Weds. Anyone know if deliveries such as these will go through anyway? Related: I got an email from our dog food company, Life's Abundance, that says that their food deliveries will continue because they are considered an "essential business".

i got an email from UPS saying their stores will remain open and they are considered essential.

i have to ask, is the generator because of the virus? That's seems a little off base to me.

When were we told we shouldn't go grocery shopping?  Serious question.  (The people walking in parks but staying away from others are doing what the government have been telling us to do; the people with their kids playing with other kids, or playing on jungle gyms and slides, are dum dums).

Yes.

That's our future reality:

- everyone wears disposable gloves and masks in public.

- wipe down all items brought from outside.

- change clothes every time you've returned from interacting with people.

- thoroughly wash hands 10x a day.

Granted, not everyone will adhere to all of these measures, but every little bit counts. And it's going to be a more realistic scenario compared to staying quarantined for the next 6+ months.

It's just going to be our new routine. No different than getting used to the idea of brushing your teeth twice a day 100 years ago.

I don't think this is necessarily the thread to see how normal people are reacting.  Feel like there is some middle ground to be had here.

Going out for a bagel this morning was fine btw.  

I've been slowly stocking up on things over the past week, have been to different stores every night,  not going to completely lock myself up.  Trying to be careful otherwise, wiping down things, washing hands a lot but not in total quarantine at this point.

It all depends how early a country gets the virus and how many “super spreaders” they have in those early weeks.  The virus “taking off” in a particular country often happens because one of the early infected people infects a ton of others.  As an example, the church in South Korea or the nursing home in Seattle.

It could also be testing, or the weather, or any number of factors.  But I’m intrigued now, so I’m gonna research this tonight.

I've mentioned this before, but I think it bears repeating with this recent discussion in here.

There's lots of risk and reward we have to weigh with all our decisions.  There's individual (family) risk/reward as well as overall risk/reward.

The chances of going out for a quick bagel and coffee and picking up the virus is relatively small if you practice social distancing.  But it's not zero.  The problem is magnified when everyone does the same thing and it continues to spread.  Slower than normal behavior, but it still spreads.  Where the ideal spot on that spectrum is, none of us know.  So, it's up to us to try and limit as much as we can.  It sucks staying at home constantly.  If you have to get out for stuff, make it focused and try to accomplish as much as you can so that you can limit future travel outside as best you can.  Be reasonable.

But, the best way to think about it is to assume that YOU are infected.  Assume you have it and your behavior is potentially passing it onto others.  Stop thinking about where you might be catching it.  When you go out for that bagel or whatever it may be, everything YOU have touched is now a potential to pass onto someone else.  There are untold numbers of people, especially in a place like NYC that have the virus and don't have any symptoms and have no idea.  Every one of those trips outside is a spread.  If any of the people that have passed this on to others knew what they had, they likely would have acted differently.

So, assume you have it and try limiting your exposure to others.  If we ALL do that, we have a chance to slow this down further.

Plenty in Italy still aren't doing that. They have charged 40,000 people with violating it. I cant say with any degree of certainty, but my gut tells me they are about as strict as we are with this stuff and dont want to be prosecuting people for this stuff. Or at least didnt want to until the swell in numbers the last few days.

They have even caught people that had tested positive.

Thanks for responding Jax. Yes, I have a CPAP and I'm worried about the power going down and me being home bound once a shutdown goes into effect. Coincidentally, our power went out today for about 2 hours.
