    California calls for residents 65 and older to stay at home | Boston.com

    SAN FRANCISCO — Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday called for what he called “profoundly significant steps” to limit the spread of coronavirus, including the isolation at home of all residents 65 years and older; the closure of nightclubs, wineries and bars; and the purchase by the state of hotels to shelter some of the state’s 150,000 homeless people.

    The orders in the nation’s most populous state came as governors across the country began to impose further limits on public gatherings in an attempt to slow the spread of a virus that has already claimed nearly 60 lives in the United States.

    “We need to meet this moment aggressively,” Newsom said. “The most important thing is to protect our most vulnerable.”

    Around 5 million seniors in California would be affected by the guidelines, which also apply to people with certain chronic health conditions.

    That’s a good point

    And ya know, on the bruins, if they did that, I guess it wouldn’t be as asterisky or bad considering they did in fact make it to game 7 of the finals the year before, i me a between that and placing first practically all season, under these circumstances what more do you need

    I think another idea though could be holding the playoffs in September and shortening next season. (Start in December like the good ole days)

    We just had someone who thought they had COVID-19 because they have a cough. This person went to the hospital.

    This is exactly what not to do.

    My wife just got word that this is what just happened at the Hospital where she works. Thankfully she's off tonight. FFS it's time to get informed people , if you don't know what to do, get informed.

    In general people are not smart enough to do what it takes. Unfortunately we can't make it idiot proof,.

    I listen to 98.5 Montreal, they spend their time repeating it. I'm sure others do to. They just don't listen, they heard it... but it doesn't compute. When panic arrives... there's only one neuron at work.

    There's just a small slice of the population who view themselves as strong individualists and whose response to being told to do something is "screw you I'm doing what I want!" And a smaller, dumber slice of that which is so put off by being asked to do something that they go out of their way to do the thing they're told not to do out of spite towards being given an order.

    From Adam & Eve to today, it's a pervasive trait of humanity.

    The Man With 17,700 Bottles of Hand Sanitizer Just Donated Them

    A Tennessee man had planned to sell his stockpile at marked-up prices online. Now he is under investigation for price gouging.

    A Tennessee man who became a subject of national scorn after stockpiling 17,700 bottles of hand sanitizer donated all of the supplies on Sunday just as the Tennessee attorney general’s office began investigating him for price gouging.
    On Sunday morning, Matt Colvin, an Amazon seller outside Chattanooga, Tenn., helped volunteers from a local church load two-thirds of his stockpile of hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes into a box truck for the church to distribute to people in need across Tennessee.
