No, the bolded is wrong. Of course no one wants to get the virus, but doing nothing and letting it spread would result in a SHORT, though brutal, timeline.

They didn't disclose any details about this person but I have a strong feeling s/he had some sort of a health condition. Kids who are vaping are also at a greater risk too, much like the smokers.

Here are the facts, as of 06:00 HRS monday 3/30/2020.....daily reports.

Interesting..

Orange County with a population over 3 million.

Cases: 431 ............... Deaths 4

By age Cases:

0-17...........18%
18 - 24........10 %
23-34..........16%
35 -44..........17%
24-64...........38 %
64 plus.........18 % ( our category )

Of course we were also interested in the cases on our own community

Dana Point...population 34,248..........Cases: 6

Agree with the tourists flocking to the beaches, they pretty will did in Laguna Beach .

Here, in Dana Point they closed down the parking lots to Salt Creek Beach, and taped off the pavillions and BBQ's at the beach park. However on Saturday the tourists mob parked in the now Closed Library parking lot on Marina and Niguel. Signs say to stay out.

That did not stop them. They filled the parking lot, but also drove up on to the grassy hill areas adjacent to the Library.

Well, the cops came, and so did the tow trucks. Cars were towed away, and of course the owners of those vehicles got to pay the towing charges and impound fees. Also, the Library parking lot is now locked down by chains, and more signs, so no access, period.

On the positive side, currently the few local people at Salt Creek Beach are maintaining larger social distances of from about 50 to over 150 feet and more from each other. The surfers are in the line up , also keeping distance, shoreline strollers are also maintaining distances.. There are no cars in the parking lot, and no people at the bbq, or the tables since they are tapped off or have Clsoed Off notices on them. NO large gatherings.

The local people walking the near by trails , are generally smiling, exchanging passing greetings, from verbal hello's to head nods. But all were keeping their distance, and happy to be outdoors. No one was stopping to converse or touch.

Hopefully , the authorities plans will keep tourist crowd loving , morons away, so that we do not lose our few open beaches, and beach trails.as is occurring in other areas.

As t the kids being out of school and parent responsibility.......long ago , I was a kid, and keeping us coralled was like herding chickens. Good luck with that one.

Where we live, the gym, pool, jacuzzi and tennis courts are closed to all. A few of the kids are out on the winding paths, riding bikes, skate boarding, or just running around . being honest if this was 74 plus or minus years ago, I would have been one of those kids myself.

As adults, I believe most of us here, do have respect for others, and follow all of the procedures set down, by local , county and state authorities.

We cannot work out at our on property gym......so we work out at home with fitness bands, dumbells, fitness balls, etc.

For cardio : We, the two of us, go out to our few still open wilderness parks and hiking trails a few days a week. Hikes are from 2 to 5 plus miles. We see the same thoughtfulness, and keeping of the 6 foot separation rule, along with the smiling faces and happy greetings.

Happy hours and date nights out to dinner are not possible, so we have our own special times here at home.

I guess the point being, we all need to be smart, be safe, and follow the guidelines, while remaining responsibly active and positive. Plus, being thoughtful of others and do our part to reduce the spread of this dastardly virus.

Another positive procedure. Yep, we are staying home and are not out socializing at our favorite places. That is actually saving lots of yankee green, that we are stashing those bucks in our travel kitty. And when it is safe to explore our country and also go on international eco vacation, we will be prepared and ready to hoot !

End game : Most of the people we see are following the guidelines, and good on them !
