No the Surgeon General for the state of Florida did not issue such an order. The office of the Surgeon General issued a WARNING - not an order - saying that people 65 or older SHOULD stay home. Should does not equal must.

There is a very significant difference.

My feeling is that people will post what they FEEL more often than what they KNOW from verifiable facts. 2 Minutes of Fame.

That's right. These same idiots go to supermarkets like all of us and possibly spread it there.

Like the fellow who wrote for UPI, I'd too would like to clear up the spelling of what is killings us. The following comes from the World Health Organization:


Naming the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the virus that causes it
Official names have been announced for the virus responsible for COVID-19 (previously known as “2019 novel coronavirus”) and the disease it causes. The official names are:

Disease

coronavirus disease
(COVID-19)

Virus

severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2
(SARS-CoV-2)

As a result of the few we need a stay at home 'ORDER" with enforcement and stiff fines.

If you don’t wear a mask /gloves around other persons , you are a spreader whether or not you have symptoms at the moment and The penalty may be illness & a quick death from pneumonia.

Right now I am more afraid of the stupidity than the virus. I hope the stupidity is not contagious.

Last I heard there was no risk driving by in an air conditioned car with the windows up.

We went to see if what we heard was really true...going for a ride from time to time. We are in the high (er) risk pool and do shelter stay at home. A short ride every day helps avoid cabin fever (some).

I figured such a response !!!!

Does your car have HEPPA filters installed ??? If not , you might be at risk just driving by !!! LOL

FYI , the squares have live streaming cameras installed so that you can sit in the safe comfort of your home and snoop without any risk at all ....
