    FWIW, Arizona just implemented a stay at home order (or whatever you want to officially call it). Now down to 6 states (technically 5 considering Nevada has it implemented it but for some reason isn't being counted). Nevada is calling it "Stay Home Nevada".

    So it's Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, and Arkansas.

    You do realize I could get in a vehicle and drive x amount of miles and interact with nobody correct? This metric is basically worthless.

    You want to compare Iowa to NYC?

    Thinking about ordering pizza then blaring the shooting scene from Home Alone to keep my distancing. Good idea? Bad idea?

    Yes I'm sure that most of these people getting into their cars are simply driving around and interacting with literally no one. Like this article said, you should take this with a grain of salt, but it's not totally meaningless.

    If the delivery person is a Gen Zer there's a good chance they've not seen that part.

    In my opinion, Gov. Reynolds wants to be able to look back and say she held out as long as possible before having to use this measure. Time will tell whether or not that's the right choice or the wrong choice. If I were to error on the side of caution though, I'd be doing what the other 95% of the United States is doing..

    Fallacy? So basically your argument is that flattening the curve doesn't save lives unless it accomplishes what it is supposed to accomplish (keeping hospitals from getting overrun)?

    No. The worst case scenario is the do nothing one. We’re past that. If the # of deaths is the same under the social distancing scenario and the lockdown scenario, which would you prefer?

    No I want Iowa to do everything it can to keep the death toll as low as possible here.

    Wife has some Oprah thing on and it’s awful. Some dude talking about his positive test and he apparently flew all over the place. Then his wife decided to fly to meet him and she finds out she is positive. So she was positive while flying. Oprah sits there with her hands all over her face.

    But Iowa can do more that doesn’t include everyone being locked inside their house. There are currently thousands of nonessential employees going to work everyday that can’t maintain the recommended social distancing.

    You will definitely be immune for a while. Your body just killed off the virus, so if you were exposed to it a day later, for instance, your body would just kill it again. I think most experts would guess "immunity" would last for at least 6-12 months just based on other corona viruses. Obviously we wont know for a while, though. Immunity also doesn't go from 100% immune to 0% over night. Your antibodies gradually decrease over time, so maybe you get the virus again in 2 years, but have a less sever case if you still have some antibodies left, so your immune system isn't starting from scratch again.

    There's a spectrum to all of this and you're choosing to go to the extreme. Those of us in here are advocating towards measures that honestly almost every single state has already taken. No one is saying we should take away cars, or lock people in their houses, or any other authoritarian measure you're suggesting.
