They may say that we have to wear face masks here too when going out to shops, so my mum has been busy making them as she has nothing else to do as unable to leave the house for 12 weeks.

I don't mind wearing one if it helps protect me and other people.

Same here with the masks.  Luckily my mom sews, so she's been making them.  Our governor said today that certain regions of the state may be able to start opening back up before others, if they meet certain criteria involving declining cases and capacity of hospital/ICU beds. There's a big difference between what it's like where I live in central IL and what it's like up around Chicago, so we'll see.

Well the Stay At Home got extended till the 15th, no surprise. We as a state also teamed up with California, Oregon, Washington and Colorado - aka the smart west coast states so that's encouraging - for a reopening plan they're going to form together to try and contain the spread since our governors know if one becomes a hot spot, we're all sunk. I missed the Vegas special but I did see Nick's intro asking people to stay home and stay safe and I got a small kick out of Gov Sisolak introducing Nick LOL.

Part of our reopening plan basically states that casinos will be the last priority, which duh. But the Trumper locals are pissed. It's so dumb cause no one will travel anyway so why worry about them right now. But they've been pissy in general since we finally went from purple to blue in 2018 lol.

I haven't seen the Vegas special yet either. Anyone know if it's been posted online yet?  I've been out of the loop this week.

It's smart for bordering states to band together on this.  The idiots down by me are threatening to just drive to neighboring states with less strict guidelines to do whatever it is they're so desperate to do.  Great way to bring the virus back to us so it takes even longer for us to reopen.

Nick didn't perform, bummer. But I have his speaking part posted on the TDS channel.

I agree about states banding together. Especially since Trump isn't going to help. Everything is falling to the governors. I know conservative Nevadans are bitching saying we're turning into California. We're not but I'd be fine with that lol. I saw the Huntington Beach protest videos on Twitter though and it's just so stupid. Why is science so hard for them?

The east coasts are doing the same thing. At least a good portion of the governors know what they’re doing. We thank God for Cuomo up here.

Thanks!  I wonder why he didn't perform something?

Ugh, now some of the Republican mayors and congressmen in my area are pushing back against our Democratic governor, calling him a dictator for extending the stay at home order, even though he already relaxed some of the requirements and expressed that there might be the possibility of opening up some regions of the state before others.  I get they're concerned about jobs and the economy, but isn't that what unemployment and the stimulus checks are for?  It's not like people who are out of work have no way of getting money, and some of them are making more from collecting unemployment than they would be if they were working.  And the economy will bounce back once everything opens back up.  I think all that is just an excuse to disagree with a leader from the opposite party.  If Pritzker was a Republican, they would support his decisions, and the Dems would be the ones complaining.  I hate politics.

It's scary how many people ignore or outright deny facts, logic, and science.  The anti-vaxxers, the flat Earthers, the "climate change is a hoax" crowd, and now these Covidiots.  WTF?  It's like we're heading back into the Dark Ages with all these ignorant people.

It is scary. I really do try to see it from the whacko side but I honestly can’t ever wrap my head around why anyone thinks that all the people who have died is an ok amount because we didn’t hit as much as predicted. I am trying to limit my news watching because I feel it elevating my blood pressure.

The truth is some of these jackasses (mayors mostly) want companies to open so this way people who were unemployed can no longer claim because their companies are now back in business. It’s disgusting.

It is sad to see how many people care more about money than human life.

I mean my mayor went viral for her push back LOL.

Yeah and I mean Texas is opening because they don't want people trying to claim unemployment. Which, what the fuck? Why is money more important than lives? I watch people say they don't care if their families die and that even they're willing to die for the "freedom to live". And if it was JUST them then you know what, fine. But these morons don't seem to understand how science works and that their stupidity can easily infect and possibly kill others. Blows my mind.

OH and I just saw Missouri is saying it's okay for concerts to come back! That is literally the LAST thing that should come back. I love concerts and I hate that all our plans this year are basically fried due to Covid but come on. Science! A concert would be a hot bed for this shit to spread and start all over again. I swear to God these red states are going to be why we'll be on lockdown for ages.

In province of Quebec our prime minister said the researchers say we have a year and a half to be in a pandemic state because people to respect the lockdown. Our government want to begin to open slowly school for kids, daycare and shop with outside doors.
