While we are yet to have any confirmed cases in Los Angeles with coronavirus its only matter of time before it happens. Can anyone forsee China type of quarantine here or any mandatory quarantine except maybe for closing schools, gov building etc ? I am just not seeing LosAngeles public of 13 mil staying home for any long period of time.

One thing to worry about is the homeless. Having an outbreak in Skidrow area could be very bad.

It isn't going to do any good to worry about something that has not happened yet and may not. Let's hope for the best

Personally I am 99.9% sure it's already in LA. It have same symptoms as regular flu, so unless someone goes to ER and gets tested, they will never know they were infected with it. Some might not even have symptoms that they had it

It's for sure already here. There's like a 1-2 week time lag on what's (able to be) reported versus what's actually happening.

II should be treated like regular flu because it's actually a flu.

Something like in China won't be possible here mainly because the authorities are still mostly accountable to the people. What was done in China isn't possible in most of the world let alone the anywhere in the USA. W have already seen the federal government back down from even keeping quarantine people in a specific area because the local people objected to it.

More than 600 Orange County residents who have traveled to mainland China have been asked to voluntarily stay home in case they develop coronavirus symptoms, health officials said Friday, Feb. 28.

They don’t have symptoms and are under a self-quarantine as a precaution that was dictated by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that began Feb. 2, Orange County Health Officer Nichole Quick said.

Those at higher risk of getting the disease are under a different federal quarantine procedure, Quick said.

“Those individuals were going to repatriation sites,” she said

I am betting a lawsuit would result in ruling against federal and /or state officials. During ebola outbreak there was lawsuits and basically unless person had some type of symptoms gov couldn't force mandatory quarantine. Also being there is only 2% mortality rate and likely will drop soon as they find what medication work, the mortality will drop much more. Can you imagine them trying to quarantine millions even in one city? I personally not only can't but they do not have the manpower to do it
