Of course I'm serious. Being single or married or whatever has nothing to do with anything. Many places have already had partial or full lockdowns going on for 2 weeks. One more week ought to be enough. Enough public places are closed such that it's getting hard for anyone to spread or receive the virus that hasn't been infected already. That was the whole point of enforced "social distancing" since we have not elected to wait for a cure or treatment (which is fine by me).Yeah, because they only hire single people who only go directly from home to work and back are you serious dude?
In three weeks time, the majority of the public that was exposed will have no real viral load, and many of the people that started getting sick two weeks ago will have begun recovery (and will likely no longer be contagious). Obviously, some areas like New York and California may elect to lock down for longer. Around here, our case load is still low, so most of the infections/asymptomatic carriers are in the process of burning out already. After next week, we should get an all-clear. Our governor has called for limited re-opening of non-essential businesses on April 6th. The schools are planning to reopen April 13th (was originally March 30th). I think those dates may be a little late, but hey whatever.
Obviously the dire cases will need to stay in medical care until it's certain they won't spread the disease. I'm more talking about those who aren't currently receiving medical care and who have been locked down for about two weeks already. There may be cases in isolation that start showing symptoms later this week, and they should be moved into medical quarantine wherever possible. For everyone else, though? 3 weeks will be long enough, and that may be a huge percentage of the population where cases were not prevalent before the institutions of quarantine.
