    I have a few [expired] Plaquenil pills left from a prescription several years ago for cutaneous lupus. I'm going to hold onto them just in case...

    This is exactly what needs to happen everywhere as someone noted in a earlier post. The snow birds are heading back north again for the season and who knows whose infected who's not. And if a state is doing good with very few cases we don't need visitors coming in right now, because just a couple of sick people can be a start a very bad thing. For alot of folks.

    I don't see how the "self quarantine" could possibly be enforced. It relies on people doing the right thing. While most probably will, there are those who won't.

    My little town is worried about all the "summer people" who are itching to open up their camps and cabins for the season and move in for the duration. Usually they only show up for the week of July 4th. They maybe around quite a bit longer this summer.

    Yep, that's the thing NH may " peak" and then start declining in cases and then these folks start coming in and start it back up again.....( or some are saying it may go away during summer and come back in the fall ) ? 94,680 cases 1,438 dead USA! Ugh, what a mess!! I had to change the no. of dead just while typing this.

    For those that are wondering you can catch the "regular flu" at the same time catch the Corona flu, very rare but possible. (Good luck with that).And being a respiratory infection watch out smokers cigarettes, cigars, vape, cannabis.

    I agree. I work in the Pentagon (civilian). I am enjoying going into work with my hair length trending back to lengths not grown since the 70s.

    The only place that they hopefully won't enforce that is for essential shoppers - there are many smaller towns in the eastern NY counties where a supermarket/pharmacy in MA (or further south CT, and some into VT on the north as well) is closer to access than ones in NY are.

    NYers started heading out of town earlier this month. Many of them went to Miami, the area with the highest rates of infection now.

    Took a stroll over to the Appalachia parking lot. Some 15 cars in the lot, nearly all from out of state. Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, North Carolina, and of course most were from Mass. At least that's a lot less then normal for a Saturday, usually they are spilling out onto the highway.
