    Only "essential" businesses may remain open.

    All emergency services, sanitation and utility workers will remain working.

    You can not leave your home except to get food, medicine, or to exercise.

    violators can be fined, or jailed.

    Welcome to the apocalypse.

    Exercise sounds like a loop hole.

    Indiana went to a similar order at midnight last night. Still very broad though, you can go out for groceries, to exercise (walk, run, bike), Dr appts etc.

    We have a shelter order but I am considered an essential worker on an essential project.

    Stay safe all!

    Stay away from confined indoor spaces as much as possible (air transmission), do not touch anywhere on your face (harder than it sounds), wash your hands!

    We've been there for a week plus and just had it renewed for a couple more weeks.

    I'd say welcome to trying like hell to AVOID the apocalypse. And I'm all in favor of it. Those people who think old people should be willing to die to save the economy need to be first in line...

    Just went and got a burger and shake then hit Baskin Robbins for a supply of mint chocolate chip.

    I'm a rebel.

    My brother's in-laws have came down with it. Lisa is a Nurse and had to self isolate, the only symptom she/they had were migraines, must effect people differently. Be safe, take care.

    Almost impossible to not touch my face !! You never realize it until you aren't supposed to.

    If I'd washed my hands and face as much growing up as I have in the past week, I would have been sick zero times !!

    Washington has 'strongly suggested' that, and is resisting more draconian measures, but it not being 'wholeheartedly' embraced (although for the most part, yes). So that may change.

    I asked the the guy at A STORE store about closing, and he said they are 'essential services', to which I agreed.

    I have to leave the house and risk getting thrown in jail so that I can mail a child support payment that I will get thrown in jail for missing.

    Here in Illinois, we’ve had shelter in place
    Since 5:00 pm Saturday.
    I work for a natural gas utility, and we are going to be working throughout this. In my department, we are trying to avoid entering customer’s homes, unless it’s unavoidable. They issued me a Tyvek suit, a mask, and goggles today.
    It’s surprising how many businesses are considered “essential”. My wife’s favorite sewing shop is still open, as well as a mega liquor store.

    Here in Silicon Valley we've been under house arrest since April 17. However, I have been under self-imposed quarantine since April 12, so I'm getting close to two weeks. I'm not concerned for myself, since I'm in excellent health (although > 60) and not afraid to die, but I am terrified of infecting my wife, since she spent five days on a ventilator in ICU last March, and that is not an experience I wish to repeat.

    Wisconsin went live with "safer-at-home" today. I think it's a little better name. Shelter in place sounds like a hurricane or tornado is coming. $250 fine and 30 days in the clink are penalties FWIW

    City of Milwaukee also issued a stay at home edict starting now. They were smart enough not to put an end date on it (sarcasm).

    Regardless, if the economy stays stuck for months people will be dying in other ways. Staying at home is very short term strategy at best.

    You type things as if they are obvious logical conclusions that I do not think are obvious logical conclusions. Many societies have survived economic hardships, disease, and bombs falling from the sky for very long periods. They recover. All we are being asked to do is stay home but still have those homes, utilities, food, etc..

    We have bad this almost a week. In reality here 90% of stuff is open and deemed essential. Even music shops are "closed" but call first and they are open. Very little if any difference since the first wave closing restaurants and pubs.
