Hi everyone, I am new to the site.

Just curious how everyone is feeling about the stay at home orders, regardless of where you live?

I'm in Northern California, and most people are getting out and not abiding to the orders, which I think is scary considering there is no cure for the coronavirus!!

Please feel free to speak how you feel.

Thank You
The stay-at-home restrictions are obviously ignored by many,, dang..........That may be the cause that alot of new cases are popping up. I, fortunately, work for an "essential" company and go to work everyday but our work force "in" the building has dwindled,, a lot are working from home,, as it should be. Stay safe my friend....
It is both ignorant and selfish to ignore the restrictions needed to prevent the spread of the virus; some don't seem to take it seriously but they risk infecting those who do. Thankfully it is well observed here as the towns and cities are almost deserted and everyone shops for food sensibly following the distancing requirements, which are managed by the stores to ensure compliance for the safety of their staff as well as customers. I don't like the term lockdown which is more commonly used in prisons! We are not locked in so its just a curfew! :)
As of three pm today,, our Arizona Governor has extended the "Stay At Home" requirement for two more weeks. He showed graphs and such for all the factors regarding COVID19 and I think it is a good decision. I just hope that everyone is adhering to their country's restrictions to tame this unfortunate mishap (if I may say).
I'm all for the extended Stay at Home here. We need to get this completely under control before everything is lifted or there will be a HUGE outbreak. For some reason people here don't seem to understand how dangerous this virus is and all they're worried about is lifting the restrictions and getting their life back. Me? I've staying inside since April 16th cause I'm scared of all the idiots who don't take this seriously.
I guess we all have our reasons for wanting to get back to normal.
We have to think of the poor women who are being ill treated by husbands/ boyfriends, people who are depressed and almost, literally, financially broke and then I can’t think about some poor children who will be living in hell.
I will happily accept that I am an idiot
I know how you feel...ive been cooped up since march 15,,,just to go across the street to the grocery store. I find it distressing as well that people feel it is OK to gather unnecessarily.

We should do our very best to get trough the stress the best way we know how.

Try to do all the right things at all the right times for all the right reasons.

Be happy, well, and at peace!
Personally I do not know who to believe anymore.
But this "lockdown' has hurt me. I am alone after losing my husband two years ago, the a year later my last older brother passed away. This virus has caused me my health and well being. My dentist can't do the necessary dental work, kaiser shit down all medical centers except for 3 that are 40 to 60 miles away! My eyes took a dramatic turn last week, headaches, loss of vision in the right eye. Had a good old telephone appointment with my doctor who told me how sorry she was that all ophthalmologists, specialists, ect. Were not seeing anyone indefinitely.
Then she threw me another pain prescription and that was the care I received that day.
I never picked it up.
She knows I can't take that stuff, it makes me nauseous! I am sorry to rant like this, but I know I am not the only one this is happening too. Anyone over 55, is being thrown away right now.
Please be careful and try not to get sick. This whole mess to me is very sad and frustrating!
It will be over soon if we all stick to the rules to stop the spread. Here in the UK you can get emergency appointments but you have to have a telephone consultation with your doctor first, I guess to ensure the only option is for an emergency appointment with a specialist.
I've been at home since the Tuesday before lockdown, mainly because I'm reliant on public transport and being 'at risk' because of OSA and asthma, my employer decided it want worth the risk to my health. I'm lucky as I can work at home so haven't been furloughed and I'm saving alot with not travelling to work.
Do I want to see my family, hell YES, do I want to see my friends, YES again, but I do believe the lockdown is for the greater good. Our NHS hasn't been overwhelmed and everyone that needs medical attention is getting it.
So yes I know it's hard but as a country we will get there together.
Nice to hear your employer put your health first
It sure has been a different way to live, but I agree with all of you who say this physical distancing is crucial to our safety. I'm very thankful for the daily morning announcements from our prime minister and the reports from public health officials. I think the preliminary phone appointments with doctors will remain, and I like that - saves me driving a half hour to see him. The government is very slowly opening a few businesses in Canada. Nurseries are opening so it will be so nice to buy plants for my patio - if it ever stops snowing! Lol - What a year. I don't recall ever ever seeing snow in May. Here's hoping the virus keeps slowing down. However, I don't believe things will ever really be the same again.
Stay at home order is still in effect but the state of Texas is slowly trying to reopen.
The CoVid19 is a very serious and scary virus BUT because of it and the mandatory shut down parts of the earth is starting to repair itself. The ozone layer is getting better, there is a big reduction in the air pollution caused by vehicles, and there are reports that dwindling sea life is being replenished.

We certainly are in the best place here in Canada .... it is scarey but we are very well informed .. I'm OK with it as I have things to do .. and yes Snow has been CRAZY silly but that is Spring Weather. I have my plants covered and ready to plant on my wee patio so we can look forward to COLOR hopefully Soon!
