Now my wife doesn't want them coming to my daughters birthday party and I'm not sure I disagree with her. The day after they left Madrid, Madrid shut down.

Am I gone?

Why are you still having the birthday party? Postponing it seems like the responsible thing to do.

Yeah, probably should postpone that till things calm down

Even in New Rochelle, isn't the ban on public gatherings only for more than 50 people? I guess I don't know how big InTen's party would be, but it might not quite be cancel-worthy.

My dad is 79. Pretty healthy. Has worked out just about every single day of his life. My mom convinced him to stay away. My cousin - his nephew, is a Dr. and is close to my Dad. According to my Mom, he is downplaying everything and told my Dad that it's fine to go to the gym - he's still going. Just wipe everything down before you use it and you'll be fine. Infuriating. He was considering going back but it sounds like my mom shut him down, at least temporarily.

I’m glad he’s listening. Hoping for the best for your family. We can all do some pushups at home, I’m going to bust out the jump rope again. Want to get some exercise in every day to keep the immune system up.

New CDC edict. No gatherings of 50+ for the next 8 weeks. There ya go, we're on hold for at least two months.

"Recommendation" which I'm sure responsible local and state government will follow. Sports leagues as well.

Ok, you tell an 8 year old that their birthday has been cancelled. She already knows we aren't going anywhere for her birthday, like we had planned. She wants to see her friends, it is natural. We will see what happens.
We cancelled our 6 year old's party. All things considered, she took it very well.

Part of me thinks a doctor might be a bad person to ask. I mean every doctor I’ve dealt with soft shoes every thing. Your case may be different being that it’s family.

When my daughter was 6 months old she got sick. She was in early stage of being septic. Doctored were very reassuring, measured, and calming. After her month in the hospital the original doctor told me they were positive she had meningitis. Turns out she didn’t. But it goes to show you how dialed back they are trained to be.

Its a very fluid situation. The invitations were sent out on Wednesday, before this got crazy. The problem is we have no idea if people will show up or not and we don't have their numbers in order to call them and tell them not to come. A few of her friends, sure, but not all of them.
We are trying to just break her spirit one day at a time, rather than all at once.

We are all just trying to keep a sense of normal. We are in a fluid situation.

I saw Wynn is shutting down for 2 weeks. Employees at the Luxor and MGM Grand tested positive. Probably a good idea to shut it all down for a while.

"Recommendation" which I'm sure responsible local and state government will follow. Sports leagues as well.

But will bars shut down (for St Patrick's Day, no less) unless forced to?

On Miami Beach and Ft Lauderdale they are making bars and restaurants close at 10pm and also to cut their capacity in half (which I think NY did). Pretty big deal during Spring Break.

Going to be impossible to enforce if everyone says 'fuck it'. Young people aren't going to GAF.  But I bet a majority of the population gets the message. And that is all that matters.

We are on the same page. I know that we are taking positive steps. Just saying weeks 3 and 4 will show that either we are making a dent (hopeful) or we aren't.

Personally I go back and forth between these possibilities. On the one hand I can't see how canceling sporting events, college, school, wfh, etc aren't going to affect the curve. On the other I see neanderthals via the intertubes crowding the a Riv for Rama, shoulder to shoulder in line for the new Mickey And Minny Runaway train ride at WDW, pictures from ORD of over crowding due to poor Federal planning and I think we're completely fucked.

It is. And there is no evidence of the virus being passed via food. Take out and delivery will still be open for restaurants that feel it is viable to stay open. Delivery apps have leave at door options now so you don't have to interact with a person. Order!

Wash your hands before handling the packaging. Remove the food with utensils into your own packaging. Discard the packaging. Wash your hands again. Golden. Eat.

Nothing is 100% private. Example: think you own your home? Stop paying property taxes and see what happens.

True but in this case the "private" business owner didn't do anything wrong. Hell, even if a home owner stops paying property tax it takes a minute to evict them.
