I thought that because that's what was being advised a month ago. Someone close to me was in Europe when this took off a month ago. When she got back, her job made her quarantine from work for 2 weeks but said she wouldn't be tested unless she showed symptoms. Has this changed? I don't know.What made you think that? That's not snark, that's a real question.
Tons of people are supposedly positive, according to the news, despite having no symptoms. Chris Cuomo, for one. That's why when someone says so and so tested positive I ask if they were sick - because according to the numbers, only a very few people who have the virus actually get sick.
Conversely, there are people who are having symptoms....and they can't get tested. Misfit on here (who I know personally) is a first-hand account, and I have other real friends who had severe flu symptoms and were told to get rest, drink fluids, and shake it off.
I marvel that people are largely not questioning this.
Why would they close the parks? Why would they close the golf courses, which is the most social distancing sport invented? Why are all these recreational activities banned, but you can still crowd into the liquor store?
In what way does any of this make sense?
I agree that a lot of it doesn't make sense as far as what's shut down and what isn't.
