My dad was driving himself to Dr.'s appointments as recently as last week and he has Parkinson's, high blood pressure and had a quadruple bypass 25 years ago. He has balance issues and fell and had an azalea branch go through his eyelid last week. I understand that if you are older and more frail this might be scarier. I know I'm worried for him.
    Bust, I wish you and your dad well. I am not frail, a gymrat who just did 150 pushups at home to try to compensate for the gym. I help take care of my dad who is close to 100 years old. He has congestive heart failure so completely worried about him catching this.

    150 push-ups is no no joke.

    This may sound strange buy my biggest fear with gyms is getting a staph infection from a piece of equipment, lol.

    It's clear that it doesn't matter if this outbreak turns out to be worse or better than people expect because every slice on one of those daily deaths bar graphs is someones parent, partner etc.. There is nothing to be done but isolate, distance and practice good hygiene and consideration of others while this plays out.

    Whatever the balance is between counseling calm and optimism while encouraging people to behave in a thoughtful safe manner is it is surely hard to strike, particularly when folks on this board are losing loved ones.

    I'm going to make it a point to call my Dad daily for the foreseeable future and feel comfortable recommending that anyone here with an elderly parent do the same.

    I don’t think that will actually happen
    In PA we have been in ‘lock down’ with only essential businesses allowed to be open. I’ve had no issue going to work, going to drive thru got lunch, some dinner take outs. Cops most likely are not going to pull you over

    Also Democrats - “We are suing states for not including planned parenthood and abortion clinics in essential business lists during the COVID19 pandemic.”
