My neighbors are not taking this seriously

I'm a news junky and for the last three years, I've considered it a curse. Reading ever damn thing that Trump does is wearing me down. BUT we news junkies (that's just about everybody here) have been hearing reports of COVID all along.

I'm listening to my neighbors outside talking about the state of things. They are both talking about what they think is really going on and complaining that you just can't find real information... In talking to one of these guys earlier I balked at his complaint. "Go to the CDC website and read it".

It seemed like I suggested taking a trip to Mars. The idea of looking up what the scientists are saying hasn't even occurred to either of these guys. This was the guy that told me that he went to the store to pick up some stuff and the toilet paper was all gone. He was completely surprised and unprepared for that.

These are the people that will be occupying the scarce hospital beds, that we're flattening the curve for.

Will it be a total surprise to your community if a shelter-in-place order is issued? Here in the Bay Area people were preparing and aware long before it was mandatory.

The SFV has about the same population as Sacramento County and this place is like in lockdown compared to usual activity - folks here are aware and holding their collective breaths (which is actually a good thing when you stop to think about itrolleyes smiley)

Looking for something to confirm their bias.
