Mayor Garcetti said it a few days ago. Now I see nearby residential streets with few open parking spaces. How many extra people do you think are staying home with the virus spiking again?

i'm involuntarily staying at home because there is no place to go. Maybe it's just as well because I'm in the danger age.
I do believe the whole thing is way overblown especially compared to bad flues in the past. They have to keep the hysteria going at all cost and they sure are.

Not many are staying home, stay at home order was never followed. What forced some people to stay at home was business being closed. Remember that stay at home order technically is not enforceable unless you are under judge order to stay at home as result of quarantine.

Casual dining and just about all shopping are available now. That doesn't mean people want to spend free time on that. The question is whether the recent increase in cases plus the mayor's words are impacting leisure choices.

Until i seen MSNBC reporting, i wasn't even aware of mayor words. I suspect many people are not either so i do not believe what he said is having impact on a lot of people.

Well I guess I'm choosing to stay home because I refuse to wear a mask and I don't feel like getting into it with anyone at the Store. For a while I was going to Target for fun because things were closed... I just feel Target is safer than Marshalls or something... This whole thing is ridiculous

You live in Southern California. The capital of 'me culture' and self entitlement. Unfortunately the cases will continue to spike there.

It's also the capital of politicians without toughness. I doubt that Garcetti's advice to stay home had a strong impact after the first month (no fear of disobeying types like him). People who won't cover their faces (a proven anti-virus method) for maybe as little as an hour per day while around others are being reckless and ridiculous, because many citizens have to go out for basic needs despite risks to their health from COVID-19. The higher-risk people probably adapt to news and heed the mayor more.

I'm staying home slightly more, to answer my own question.

Yeah, I work from home so stay there except for food shopping and an occasional fast food drive through Picked up dinner at a Restaurant and they were so packed when I went in to pick it up (Note they used to do curb side pickupsI will not go again and not just during this problem. They care more for money than people.

I decided to pull out my Darth Vader mask and I wear another mask underneath. It is a black thick plastic Darth Vader mask with a microphone and it can talk:
