Good! At present NY state accounts for 44% of total US cases. Throw in Jersey and Connecticut and it is pretty close to 50%.

Lockdown just meaning non-essential workforce to stay home.

Likely more if the same. Just all non-essential businesses closed.



Either way...still only rumors at this point. I actually deleted my comment since it’s unsubstantiated

Sort of. It's really not going to be that different for many of us. It'll mean a wider list of businesses closing (aside from just bars/restaurants), so get that Kohl's run in now. But really, it shouldn't be that big of a change for anyone who is already working at home/social distancing.

I thought Kohl's, etc, were already closed on the earlier order. Kinda sucks for them because Target and Walmart and Costco are currently allowed to stay open because they sell food but they sell plenty of other stuff.

Well Governor Baker was just on TV emphasizing that they are not planning on a shelter in place order. If they were considering one this weekend I would think he'd just non answer.
