    On the list of "ok essentials" if you're not in a big crowd.
    Airfares are cheap and rooms are even cheaper,
    this is the season for a deal. Come on out and escape
    the horrid COLD, Cramped city life!

    It’s warm & sunny here, too, 80℉ at the moment. But I wouldn’t advise anyone risk coming here. Assuming that’s even doable. I must assume this OP is a joke.

    They haven't banned flights here to Az. So it seems like it is doable.

    Problem can be the departure point, not just the arrival in Arizona. And returning back home. Plus an out-of-state car trip might encounter some challenges with food & lodging along the way.

    And to what purpose? Risk your life for cheaper prices at your destination? A dubious trade-off. This is the time for patience and social responsibility. Pleasures can be postponed - your well-being cannot.

    I question this pandemic and the impact it will
    actually have. I guess we'll see, but seems to me you
    have a better chance of dying from a car crash vs.
    the coronavirus. The numbers in the usa are pretty low.
    I guess we will see in the next few weeks. Time will tell.

    If you ever dealt in Risk Management, then you would know that risks are additive. You take a small risk here, concurrent with another small risk there, then add a few more, and before you know it your total risk exposure goes critical.

    My goal is to minimize ALL my risks. Can’t eliminate all, I know that, we must accept some, like with driving, or riding a bicycle. That’s life. But isn’t not having too many risks at once better than having more? And not better to minimize a known risk like coronavirus when it’s staring you right in the face?

    It is a gamble, life is certainly a gamble. Now, like I mentioned in previous post......
    I believe, I actually already had this virus (middle of November 2019 and was really different from what I've experienced in the past). I had a slight fever and dry cough, but it didn't stay very long and I figured it was just a short lived "odd" flu.

    Now, my friend Becky got sick in Jan-2020 and it was a severe
    pneumonia flu like and that's what they told her in the ICU. They didn't have the coronavirus test then and she was really sick
    and could hardly breath. She also had preexisting conditions that exasperated her conditions and even left some lingering side effects. So this pathogen with others that will yet come can do some serious harm and KILL for sure.

    I suggest building immunities against pathogens and maintain a healthy diet and have a good workout program and stay in physically good shape too. I think all these can help. Fresh air and Sunshine are both good for your immunities.
    Be well!!

    I agree, and our good wishes to you. Fresh air & sunshine is why we sit on our patio, also where we have some of our meals, and why I bicycle when I can. And do indoor floor exercises, with the gym closed.

    San Francisco was either the first or second city to start shelter in place protocols and shut down of non-essential businesses. (Seattle may have been first.) But they only closed smaller confined parks like fenced dog parks and children's playgrounds. The big parks they left open but they, like city streets are well patrolled and the fine for getting close to others is $400, though the police chief stated clearly that they had no intention of making life more difficult for families. So on a nice day, there are a fair number of people out and about but acting responsibly. When I checked with my doctor, they recommended sunshine and light exercise. So we've been exploring parks with the dogs and not only does it feel great, it is nice to see your fellow citizens and smile and nod as you swing wide to respect the distancing rules. We're in this together. And so far our illness curve is pretty flat. Even the homeless haven't had it too hard. 11,000 unused beds reserved and patrols actively encouraging them to move in along with pets and stuff.

    It has been noticed in California that 'The Homeless' don't seem to be getting the Corona Virus anywhere near the % of the regular population

    Perhaps it’s because they are outside, get lots of Vitamin D, and store up their Vitamin D during the winter months??

    Build you immunities!!
    Stay well.

    Do you have something intelligent to contribute or are you here just to harass Art for no legitimate reason.

    I think about this, too. I think something is off. For example, in areas where they tested people to see if they had the coronavirus antibody, they found that a lot more people tested positive for it who had no idea they ever had it. And that makes me question when they do a tally of the people who die daily if they're actually dying due to COVID-19 or did they just happened to get tested for the virus and their results came back positive and therefore claim the cause of death with from COVID-19.

    I've known people personally in real life and know of a couple people here on the site who had it and all have survived. My anecdotal experience is insignificant but even asking here in the threads or RJ, only one person I can think of said he knew three people in Italy that died from COVID-19. No one I know personally knows of anyone who has died. We're all reading about all these people dropping like flies but where and who are they?

    Golf courses have been open throughout this pandemic here in AZ and I am not aware of golfers dropping like flies from CoVid. Probably have a better chance being hit in the head by a golf ball and suffering a concussion --- especially if I'm playing that day LOL.

    Bottomline: We have to be warriors and plow on through life and not let the media and the Democrats allow us to live in fear. That's not to say we should be stupid -- keep your distance, wash your hands, be smart about it -- but live your life and get on with it.
