Please be patient with those of us who can't leave our homes at all. We are participating more. We got the word we are on lockdown until the end of May. I am not happy camper, but I have giving myself 10 minutes to feel bad.

Let me see if I can copy and paste it here and perhaps you can help me understand.

Summit County issued a stay-at-home order on Wednesday, which goes into effect on Friday and lasts until at least May 1. But Summit County is “still being hit disproportionately hard,” containing 30% of the state’s cases as of last report — the majority of them now caused by community spread. Though Salt Lake County has the highest number of cases, Summit has about a 20-times higher rate of the illness per capita, Bullough said.

Don't feel bad. Enjoy your time at home. There are many things you can do at home.

It really isn't as easy as all that and I will keep trying.

Another two months of this and I wonder when cabin fever will strike and people go crazy.

I am guessing it will only take me a week and somehow I will need to fly the coop - is that how it's spelled.

I am really curious as to what state you live in and what is meant by 'lockdown'.

Lockdown means you can leave the house with permission to pick up medication and food only. It's not the whole state, it is the county in which I live. It's Summit County in Utah - Our number of cases are through the roof. All the ski resorts are now shut down. I don't know if everyone got home after Sundance. Park City, which is 12 miles away from us is overrun with people from all over the world this time of year. Does that help explain?

The whole world is in same state. Its such a time when we look at every other person with suspicion. I think if China would have acted with responsibility we would have not faced such a situation. It is evident that China tried to hide about the Virus and the world came to know about this deadly virus when it was already late. Now we all are helpless. The only way to curb this is by isolating ourselves. But not everyone is privileged to do this as there are lots of people who have to manage their bread and butter. Its a very difficult situation

The whole world is not in the same situation. There are similar situations but we are not experiencing it the same way.

That's quite a long time for a lockdown, Ghost. But lockdown is necessary. In Italy, it has been reported that the rise of the number of infected started to decline after two weeks of lockdown. I hope it will be the same all over. Keep safe

That's a pretty stiff "sentence". I don't know how long lockdown will last here.

Nobody is a happy camper concerning this pandemic.
