Thanks to the full weekend of nonstop coverage of the 2020 Coronavirus update, life has been cancelled. Fr my own memory, I want to start a list of everything that I can think of that closed.
Just a short list of what this means:
Schools in Pennsylvania – Closed for 2 weeks by the Governor
Restaurants and Bars – Closed
Non Essential Stores – limited to 50 people
March Madness – NCAA Basketball – Cancelled
NBA Basketball – On Hold til further Notice
NHL – On Hold
MLB Spring Training – On Hold 2+ ? weeks
All gatherings of over 50 people – Cancelled
Churches – cancelled
Meetings and gatherings – Cancelled
St Patrick’s Day Parades – Cancelled
Non Stop Drinking and Debauchery for St Patty’s Day weekend – STRONGLY DISCOURAGED
Movie Theaters – Closed until further notice
National Guard in most states activated
Travel bans from China, Asia, Iran, Italy, Europe, UK and Ireland.
Both Canada and Mexico closing their borders
As the hype and hysteria set in over the weekend, so did the level of insanity toward shutdown and control. Governors across the country were changing their minds faster than they change their underwear.
They continue to go deeper and deeper as the headlines get bigger. Is it bowing to public pressure?
