Milwaukee/Dane/etc. are going to still remain more locked down. If an outbreak occurs somewhere more rural, I would hope and assume they react to it quickly. We now have the ability to know if there is an outbreak.
So this was 1-2 weeks early. Wisconsin was 5/6 indicators set and the last indicator I think most would agree would be a good barrier to cross but I don't think is really going to cause issues in the end. So Wisconsin probably is/was ready. I'm sure that testing and tracing is in place. If a middle ground is met on the rules or counties do it well enough, there will not be zero effect from this but it hopefully/probably won't be the disaster that is being feared.
Agreed. The order wasn't going to be extended again anyway so I don't think 12 days will make that big of a difference. And while some places opened up right away, many others are taking a more measured approach.
If I owned a haircut place I'd open 24/7 for awhile if I could. There will be demand. Walk-ins won't be allowed, by appointment only.
I have no interest in going to a bar or restaurant now. But I will continue to support local businesses as much as I can. I never ate in restaurants or did take out more than once every couple of weeks. Now I"m doing it 2-3 times a week, always with a local place, not a chain. Some seem to be doing pretty good take out business, hopefully enough to sustain them. And I only do delivery if the place has it's own delivery people. Grub Hub, etc.. take way too much of a cut.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.
