Anyone that stays shut after April 1

Is a fool.

With people in every state exposed, and invaders still crossing from Mexico and Canada, we would need a 3-6 month quarantine to be effective. (Virus has an up to 45 day life cycle, and you need at least two cycles to break it.)

Everything else has been security theater and DO SOMETHING! reactions.

Societal and medical triage are what we need, not mass panic and economic destruction. But hey, those serve somebody's plans, right?

Isolate the vulnerable, still. Less vulnerable keep washing your hands good. Maybe keep up the 50% rule in social gatherings for 2 more weeks. "Your theater holds 300? Maybe only sell 150 tickets."

But an economic collapse will kill more people than the worst Wu Flu scenario.

Considering that government seems to be the repository of most of our society's fools...

We're going to be on lockdown until Lord Humongous comes to save us.
