I’m both surprised and not by the decision to put the entire country under quarantine. What surprises me exceptionally more though is how many people think this this is much ado about nothing.
I, however, do take all of this very seriously. I take it so seriously that I contacted one of my family members this evening who would be in a high risk group and instructed them that they should limit social contact to groceries, gasoline, and seeing family with the caveat that I may recommend even stricter guidelines once it becomes more established in their area. They agreed.
