Are the people quoting dates for shoots in the next few months planning on ignoring the CV-19 state sequestration orders? Or hoping against hope that this thing flattens out by then? VERY risky! Some states are screening people with out of their state's license plates and requiring drivers to list residences for 14-day self quarantine after recording their plate numbers and contact information, with promises to "follow up". They are talking big fines for violators.

If this goes beyond May there will be more problems than shoots being cancelled. Folks are already getting stir crazy not to mention forced closings of businesses causing many hardships. We will see small businesses open with or without government ďpermissionĒ. Bills still need to be paid even with unfunded mandates in place.

Kevin, I think we are all just fervently hoping that life gets back to some sense of normalcy , but I don't think it will happen soon. I wouldn't risk going to a shoot and putting my family at risk .Just hoping for better times.

You can't hide from a virus. A vaccine is 3 to 4 years out if it can ever be figured out.

There are two choices:

100,000 Dead

100,000,000 Unemployed

Pick one.

The talking heads on the ďnewsĒ shows keep saying itís about money and greed that we want to get businesses open and people back to work but itís not that at all - itís about the future of our nation! 250 years ago there was also an enormous crisis that would determine the future of our nation and a lot of patriots put their lives on the line... for the future of this nation.

The deliberate destruction of the economy creates a health crisis greater than the virus going forward. Millions of unemployed lose health insurance for themselves and their families. Routine medical care not being done means prolonged suffering, conditions worsening and conditions going undetected. The stay home order puts more people at risk for domestic violence, leads to more alcoholism and illicit drug use, more depression and anxiety, more mental health treatment not happening or never started, more eating and less exercise and finally more suicides just to name a few things.

You can't hide from a virus. Social distancing only flattens the curve, the same number of people get sick, it just spreads out the time frame.

As one intelligent and practical MD I like says, cloth masks are a placebo, if you are using gloves shopping thinking that's better than just washing your hands you are an idiot (his words not mine). Don't touch your face, that means don't use your phone, who does that?

Wash your hands, try not to rub your eyes or touch your face unless they are clean, get your rest, eat right, take your vitamins. Live your life, it's short anyways and understand you will come contact with the virus, it doesn't mean you will get sick and if you do it doesn't mean you will die.
