Basically anything is better than nothing.

Here's a good place to start:

That's been my approach for our family.
We still need to wait a bit. Most people show symptoms within a week, but some later.
Also, some patients seemed to be on the path of "recovery", but suddenly died.

In RI, it is beer and wine only. 144 oz limit for beer. Not sure about wine.

I don't have any experience with this, but I understand it's typically 3X liquor store prices.

WILMINGTON (CBS) — A Wilmington nursing home that was slated to become a coronavirus care center will delay plans to do so after 51 of the 98 residents set to leave the facility tested positive for the coronavirus while showing no symptoms.

Pointe Group Care, LLC, operator of AdviniaCare at Wilmington, said the the facility, which was going to be a 142-bed coronavirus recovery center, is separating those who have tested positive for the virus from those who have not, and that staff will now be tested.
I wonder where they are moving these nursing home residents when they clear them out for CV patients.

I just saw a FB post that Kowloon will be selling growler-ish bottles of Mai Tais. You are in luck!

[Edit: It turns out it's only a mix. Add your own alcohol. But the mix is the toughest part, so...]

Not saying the people who have contracted coronavirus are to blame either but some have been more responsible than others. I just don’t think it’s fair to ruin the livelihoods of hardworking people to possibly save live or not save lives. Lives have already been lost. Other lives are currently being financially ruined. It’s a really hard situation. I just don’t know that shutting down businesses is the answer.
Well, what would the answer be, then?

I hear many people say (like Trump was saying) that the economy was more important than saving lives. But they are the same thing. The economy does not exist without living healthy people. Pile up bodies in the streets and see just how that precious economy runs.

Economies can be devastated and they can then recover if the technology, manpower, resources, infrastructure, willpower is there. None of that is being destroyed here.

Absolutely right. I had that revelation despite my great social distancing and information and all, I finally realized that I could be an asymptomatic carrier. I had assumed because of my age (67) that I'd certainly have symptoms, maybe severe if infected, but now I wonder, of course. So my cloth face mask makes me feel more appropriate in public, even outside. I do keep social distance in my spare little town where everyone seems to be trying their best to stay home, keep distance and keep on, keeping on.

How is everyone doing with grocery deliveries? I've been trying for days and can't get one set up.
