I dont want to turn this into a political debate so let's try to stay on the topic of what you plan to do and why.  Looking at the numbers of new cases of, and deaths from, covid19 it appears that staying at home has worked and nationally cases and deaths are leveling off perhaps even beginning a downward trend.  Given what you know about the virus will you begin to ignore orders to stay at home or will you stay home for as long as recommended by local authorities?

I agree with Accountability ..  It has been tough weathering through this, but for others safety, I'll observe what is being asked.  Hopefully, we'll be able to get out again among each other soon enough..

I think we are all getting tired of staying home, but the statistics are showing that it's working so i will continue to stay home until I'm told it's safe. I have no desire to become infected or to pass it to someone else.

Of course there is also the part of being a submissive and the fact that C might have something to say if i were not following the rules. 

I'm trying not to go nuts, by de-cluttering and spring cleaning my house, taking walks close to home and occasionally escaping to the middle of nowhere to enjoy nature. Thankfully I live close to many remote areas. All of our recreational sites are closed, but the forests are open for use. Went out Sunday and came in contact with no one. 

Like many, I am looking forward to things returning to normal. I am having difficulties with concentration and restlessness. Even though I am not finished with my house...I am completely bored of cleaning!!!

Knock on wood....I still go to work daily

And with everyone else working from home I'm actually around less people here than anywhere else..

As far as the rest, outside of my gym it's not like I went out a lot anyway

So, outside of a much easier commute not much changed for me

Not much has really changed for me honestly.   Work, home, grocery store, are the places I typically go and that's where I'm still going.  What's been hard is that my family is stuck home.  Living in a county with a population of around 70000 and confirmed cases less than 50 it's hard to tell the kids that we can't go here or there because of the virus when the odds are extremely rare that it would be an issue for us.  Plus knowing this is going to be around for months it's hard to agree that the lockdown needs to remain.  I think it's time to let people start getting out again and letting businesses open again, provided they can accommodate  proper social distancing.

I was already alone and isolated, covid-19 merely enforced that. I was starting to branch out, do things with others, but that branching got chopped off. Hope the world comes to its senses. There are enough problems without this going on.

covid-19 is not going anyplace, it will be around for the rest of human history, like flu, cat's out of the bag, we just have to deal, whether we deal tomorrow or six months or a year from now the choice is ours. I guess they are waiting for that vaccine to get ready, that must be the rationale for lockdown, that and wanting a trickle rather than a flood at the hospitals. I don't know whether the economy can handle the pause. It's hard on the younger people that are out of work. If you're retired then I guess it is not really a big deal. If you have rent to pay and debt then it is a very big deal. I imagine people are going to be filing for bankruptcies before long, big credit crunch on the way.

I agree with most of that.  I do think that locking things down hopefully gave the medical suppliers a little more time to play catch up since its apparent  that no one was even remotely prepared to deal with a situation like this.  I think we basically have three outcomes from here.  This eventually  just goes away, a vaccine is developed or this just keeps coming back year after year and sooner or later everyone gets it.  

I think at this point we have to start allowing those who are not risk the opportunity to return to work and start earning a paycheck again provided they can maintain proper  social  distancing  and that those who are at risk should stay quarantined as long as they feel is prudent.  I think keeping the schools closed is a good idea and I applaud my governor cor his quick action to close the schools.  I think that alone made a huge difference in the spread.

Restlessness and boredom are going to have me leaving my house soon regardless of the consequences. Sadly or thankfully there is nobody that's going to punish me for that when it happens. I would pick a fight to end up over someone's knee if there were local spankers nearby. That might keep me indoors for a while.

I am living in the worst county hit by the virus in New Jersey....Bergen. I am no spring chicken anymore either so I am hunkering down in my home "bunker" and waiting the dam thing out. What has made it easier is I am able to work from home. The internet and TV have made it bearable. Also, I have plenty of "stuff" to look through, you know things u will look at later....well it is later. Setting up plenty of spankings when this is over so that is kinda neat too. If a quarter pan out, it will be time well spent.

I wish that the evidence was more clear about the benefits of the lock-downs.  The severity of the outbreaks seems to have little to do with whether the states or localities had stay-at-home orders.  New York is the hot spot, and yet it had a pretty sever lock-down.  Estimates of the case fatality rate vary widely from severe to not much worse than the flu, but recent studies make it clear that whatever range of statistics you accept, the number of infections has been significantly understated, and therefore, the initial case fatality rates were highly inflated, the only question being by how much.  Also, the pattern of the fatalities as to age and health condition is not widely reported.  If you dig into the statistics even from a hot spot like New York, you can see that the risk of dying from the virus are tiny unless you are elderly (like 70+) or have a serious health condition, such as poorly controlled diabetes.  In New York, last time I checked, the case fatality rates for children ages 0 to 9 was exactly zero.  Despite all that, people seem to draw conclusions based more on their own sense of confidence or panic rather than from the data.  I am in the fortunate position of not having to make decisions concerning these trade-offs.  Those are decisions left for our fearless leaders to make.  As long as California and Los Angeles, where I live, keep us on lock-down, then that's what I will do, whether or not I doubt the wisdom or benefits.  I can only cross my fingers and hope they are making wise decisions.

Knowing that you could be killing those around you that are immune compromised and or elderly, from how fast this is spiraling, should keep you inside. Do you think you could handle the guilt of killing someones sweet grandmother?

I apologize, it was written in a temporary fit of insanity. I have not, nor will I, leave the safety of my apartment as long as is necessary. And I used the same analogy yesterday to my best friend who wanted to go out....it’s all the what-ifs that are keeping me paranoid and inside!

I think that for sure anyone who is at risk should be isolating themselves, no matter whether government says it's safe to start going out or not but many of us haven't been able to stay home during this thing anyway.  I really have no  choice other than to go to work.  Our industry is moving along like always so any chance of  collecting unemployment is out.  If I dont work I lose my medical coverage and that is a recipe for bankruptcy.  Since I've been going out I have stayed away from anyone that is at risk to keep from potentially  exposing them to the virus. 

It is my opinion that those businesses that wish to open be allowed to do so provided they can allow for social distancing, those people who wish to go out be allowed to do so and that those people that wish to remain sheltered in place should do so.

Being in three categories of particularly vulnerable I’m staying in. 
 

It’s the right thing to do anyway.  You can see that stay at home works and places that don’t have that have more cases than similar ones that do. 
 

Give the specialists the time they need to get a handle on this.

Look forward as state by state / region by region, my fingers are crossed that we are relaxing the self quarantine protocols.  Now this relaxation of the stay at home does require the monitoring of our local-state health departments as well as the CDC.

 

But ladies & gentlemen progress is being made 

:-)

I’m becoming less convinced that it’s possible to have these stay at home orders and shut the economy down and have a improved outcome as a result. By the economy, I don’t mean luxurious prosperity so much but the engine that allows people to meet their needs. Look at what’s happening with Tysons foods. And there’s no reason to believe that this won’t happen again in factories producing essential food. So they shut them down every time there’s an outbreak and we are likely to see food shortages as a result.  This on top of the people no longer able to afford food.


I’m afraid it’s possible that the sad reality may be that this virus will keep swimming around while we will have to continue with our lives.

I am one that is wheelchair  bound...After a CVA stroke... I have stints in my heart...  I am ready to go out...  Ready to find a Disciplinarian and Possible life partner...  It time for each state determine what is best for their citizens, able bodied or not, their constituents.

 

Just my opinion... I am law biding. If Ohio says they are going to continue and is not going to lower it's stay-at-home orders.. I will stay home but so far it looks like I can go to the store, restaurants,  and so on...

These are diffecult times...Im sure you have been doing your part, and in our parts we have succeeded in delivering C19 numbers lower than Canada's BEST case scenario.  But, when this is all over, i hope you find your spanker!

We all get that.  
 

I’m very much staying home.  I get out for the occasional necessity but other that I figure I’m compromised and my wife is a hospice nurse and does, at times, have Covid patients.  What a mess when she gets home.  Has to come in through the garage and change into a robe then heads straight upstairs throwing everything she was wearing in the wash and showering. 
 

Even with PPE still has to be exceedingly careful. 
 

Too bad you are where you are and I am where I am.

It has really been tough for me, I have had to work through it all as I make vital equipment to help fight the pandemic, the physical activity I do at work helps a little, but the mental strain is still there knowing I am at risk.

Staying at home is not an option for me, I must report to work. Also, I go to the grocery store, masked, and for walks, unmasked.

The only thing changed is I no longer attend church, because mine is video-only, which does not appeal to me. Instead I practice ritual at home.

It is highly unlikely a lockdown would be ordered in my area, but surely I would follow it rather than be arrested. Without compulsion, I would continue to do as above, work, walk, and go to the grocery store.
