    That's that 'doubling up' thing people were wondering about.

    30% growth rate has been the standard. This isn't surprising.
    I'll go ahead and bet we see around 70 new cases tomorrow.

    Still no shelter in place ordered, just dumb. Good job Reynolds. My friends in Michigan said yesterday when they got to 21 positive cases they shut down and it has since been extended for another two weeks.

    Why? You can do it without the Governor telling you to.

    That's my uneducated guess. I'm curious how many current hospitalizations we have.

    I fully expect this weekend to be bad on numbers. The question is are the numbers higher than what we expect.

    Having more formalized stricter measures would put more pressure on some of the employers that are bucking this and refusing to adapt with a WFH strategy. A good number of people would isolate but can't because its show up or get fired.

    I'm in the same boat. You'd think in a time like this they'd put forward something more intuitive on the remote notarization, but that isn't the case.

    I don't want to put myself or anyone else at risk, but I also do think it's important that these things get taken care of given the prognosis of an elderly person who catches this virus.

    I don’t know but the message has been this weekend to expect big jumps.

    All attorneys working in criminal law or juvenile law (including cases where children have been removed from their parents) have to be looked at as essential.

    Unfortunately it doesn't quite work that way, especially with estate planning documents. As was referenced above, they are working on measures to allow us to remotely witness and notarize documents. However, from what I've seen, others in the profession are not yet comfortable enough with the guidance we've received on how it will work to go that route. Plus we are largely dealing with elderly individuals who may not have the capabilities of connecting with us through video conference.

    Today’s results are from 821 tests the day before was from 400 plus tests not sure on exact amount which explains the jump in numbers . Still sitting at about 6% of those tested being positive

    Exactly. The procedures under the Governor's Proclamation and in the statute that takes effect in July are not practicable right now. And many elderly clients wont find it easy to deal the technological requirements. It is more than just hooking them up on Zoom.

    What I was going to mention, still about the same percentage of positives so the amount of testing is going up. Not sure which is following which.

    I haven't seen the press conferences the past couple of days, but they need to be more definitive statements. The tone the leadership sets on this determines how serious people take it.

    Right now there are still people thinking that as long as they don't feel sick they can be out and about. Even things like plan ahead, only go to the store once a week or even less makes a difference. Instead the statements were only go out for what you need. There are still people that think if they are healthy, they still can justify making a trip to get carrots for their stew that night.
