To many people will go back to the old normal.

Not stay with the new normal.

Trump just said sport events should go back to normal.

Full of people.

He said it.

It will be rushed.

1. Murderer45 has learned nothing from recent tragic events. He has

neither foresight nor hindsight.

"It was the biggest soccer game in Atalanta’s history and a third of Bergamo’s population made the short trip to Milan’s famed San Siro Stadium.

Nearly 2,500 fans of visiting Spanish club Valencia also traveled to that Champions League match.

More than a month later, experts are pointing to the Feb. 19 game as one of the biggest reasons why Bergamo has become one of the epicenters of the coronavirus pandemic — a “biological bomb” was the way one respiratory specialist put it — and why 35% of Valencia’s team became infected.

The match, which local media have dubbed "Game Zero,” was held two days before the first case of locally transmitted COVID-19 was confirmed in Italy."...(more)

2. A hell of a lot of people aren't going anywhere no matter what Trump and some of the

governors say. I wonder if a lot of bartenders and servers really want to go back. If they're home safe and drawing unemployment, going back and making shit for tips at a mostly empty business won't work out well.

16. You Understand When People Say They Want To Stay Home Safe - That This....

falls in line with what Lindsay Graham & the Repugs are saying that - people are lazy and they just want to not work and collect unemployment.

They will say - see I told you so.

4. I'm inclined to think that most people will not go back to the old normal.

In many ways they won't be able to. But more to the point, this thing is not going to end tomorrow. It's going to take at least two of the following: an effective vaccine, a reliable test for who currently has it, and a reliable test for those with anti-bodies. Any two of those three would allow re-opening (as people are calling it) of this country.

It's possible that the second two could happen within six months. The first, an effective vaccine, is probably a lot farther away. So we will all mostly be staying at home, going out as little as possible, altering our buying and socializing habits. Permanently.

And those states that rush going back to "normal" will pay the price in vastly increased instances of the virus.

10. Well stated!

Anything short of what you propose will be an even worse disaster with even more suffering & needless deaths.

Repukes are so short sighted & uncaring.

14. It's like if you ever faced a life threatening illness or disease

I haven’t, but I partnered with my spouse when he did, over the course of a year. He thankfully came out on the other side of it, but the habits we formed during that year didn’t go away for a long time, and they came in baby steps, some of them in eventual modified form lasting for these nearly five years.

It included washing hands the second we got in from the outside (a necessity when his immune system was entirely compromised), so that this was nothing new to us today. It also meant making efforts to reduce stress during the reentry into work and social situations by saying no more often and not trying to do everything. Overall reducing obligations and spending more time at home. Priorities and habits change after a brush with mortality.

I bet a lot of people will take baby steps in emerging from this situation too. And a lot of the habits and changes we’ve adapted to during this crisis will become permanent, though in modified form. Eating home more often, shopping for food judiciously and less frequently. Keeping distance in public places still as we venture out.

Others will throw all caution to the wind and resume old ways immediately. And that is what is scary, because it affects us all.

6. If you keep up the protocols u presently observe, you will be a lot safer.

I plan to keep them up until that vaccine needle is stuck into my arm.

I have RADS, so I'd be pretty much toast if I got the virus.

No. It will never again “be gone”. Ever.
