People are doing this in many other parts of the world because they have competent governments that have managed to increase contract tracing and testing, trusting scientists, providing social safety nets for people in need so that if they are sick they can stay home. The US government has done none of these things but spent their time deflecting blame and spreading misinformation. I’m happy to do all of the things you outlined but I’m not willing to die or kill others because of this inept president. If you want us to step out then vote him out, bring back competence and I’ll do as you say. Until then, stay home.

The US government doesn’t do these things, they are at the state level. Complain to your governor.

Lol. I won’t have my sanity back by flying, booking hotels or seeing the economy do well. I’ll have my sanity when my family, my parents and friends are safe and they aren’t risking being exposed to a virus that can severely impact their health. Being safe, conservative and taking preventive measures whether physically or financially, isn’t living in fear.

Spoiler. You will never be “safe” from this again. It will never go away entirely, we will be looking at this every year like the flu.

Really novel idea bro. I’m sure it never occurred to everyone here that the economy is fragile and needs to restart. We were all just waiting for you to say this, thanks so much.

Perhaps you should be keeping up with current events. Someone literally just shot up a Waffle House because they had the audacity to tell him that he needed to wear a mask

Nice whataboutism, A1. I never said crime wouldn't still happen but the OP is talking about people wearing masks as if it's just so simple. Yeah, maybe if people weren't morons screaming about "Muh Rites and Freedums" that would work.

Nice try, Mr. President.

Personally, I'm enjoying the extra money I'm saving and the longer time I'm home. So no OP, I'm not going to go out and spend more money.

Maybe. But more likely I spend the money on things I care about when I'm ready. Till then I'm quite content.

Maybe this is the economy and there is no going back. Adapt or go mad. You keep doing you.

Op relax, things heal in time. It’s already beginning to open.

Just need to know the signs

Sweden never locked down and their economy is doing terrible. You should do some research before posting ignorance

Imagine being a healthy adult walking around scared of coronavirus

Boyfriend tested positive for COVID and has since gotten a negative test. 1 week later I test positive after having symptoms for 5 days already and getting negative tests. It’s now been 10 days since initial symptoms but still getting positive at home tests. Do I need to continue to isolate? Also do I need to still isolate from him?
