How are the people of Ocala handling the Chinese pestilence?

On a scale of 1 (life is continuing generally as normal) to 10 (majority of people wearing masks, people being arrested for going outside, etc) what is the level of hysteria in the Ocala area right now? I know there's a toilet paper shortage everywhere, but trying to get a gauge on how you all perceive the public's reaction in your area is.

Thank you

It's pretty chill, for the most part. Mask wearing is less than 50-50. I live off 200. Traffic is about like normal. Gas stations, convenience stores, pharmacies, Wal Mart, all these are open with lots of social distancing tape on the floors. Pools and clubhouses shut down at some of the communities, not happy about it, but I understand why, it's a liability thing. I haven't seen or heard of anything excessive on the part of the local constabulary. Mainly it's the small businesses that took it on the chin around here. My friend's barber shut down permanently and his space is now up for lease.
