Yikes. Seems like they’re not being well protected. Boston police have basically been ordered to sit in their cars and arrest no one due to this.

People are going to lots of vacation places from places besides NYC. Boston people are certainly going to the Islands. I think they don't get the lack of medical care there, the need to transport off island for anything, and the fact FACT that the virus is everywhere.

I'm sure. There isn't a way to stop this, only mitigate and slow the spread.

I worked with geriatric dementia people in-hospital. Every time norovirus roared through, we all were very clear that a new virus would kill people. And yeah, the flu, too.

Bridge781, may I gently say you seem a bit late to the reality of the situation.

I think I was trying to be more hopeful than anything else. I knew things weren’t good but they are worse than I thought they’d be.

Hope is a fine thing if grounded in reality. It's sure hard to accept bad news, I know.

Buddy of mine has a family home waaaay up in NH on the Canadian border. Same deal really. Isolated, no neighbors, can do what you want. They went up for the weekend just to get out of town and "destress" a bit. Told me on the way up, when he was riding through town one of the first cars he passed yelled out "Go home M*******!"

I do have a place in mind in Maine where I could bug out to. I don't think it will ever come to that, but I do have a plan. SOunds like crackpot prepper type stuff I know...but here we are.

The people I really feel for right now are those living in high-density urban areas that rely on public transportation. If they have young kids and/or single parent, that's gonna be even rougher.

Im not sure what the point of going to a cabin in the woods at this point would be ? Why not just stay in your own home? If people are staying at home they should be ok unless coronavirus droplets are oozing through the windows.

My guess is concern about social unrest in the highly populated areas especially if a lockdown is put in place.

It wouldn't be the virus they are escaping.

Sorry, in the midst of all this gloom & doom, this statement just cracked me up! Lord, I hope not...that'd be like a Stephen King novel (speaking of Maine lol)
