Self isolation

Recommended Posts

Since the gf and I travelled to the Dominican Republic last week we now have to self isolate at home for two weeks, on day 3 now lol. We don’t have to by law but are strongly encouraged to. I think it is the smartest thing to do and don’t plan on going out and putting anyone at risk just in case. We both feel great and are not worried. I have firewood to pile and lots to keep me busy so it will go by quick lol. The rest of our lobster season that closes on May 31 could be shut down real soon. 
Take care everyone 😉

New update, the Nova Scotia government has now declared a state of emergency here in NS, it says self isolation will now be policed and anyone caught out will receive a $1000 fine per day and they are asking no gatherings of over 5 people. 
As of today there are 28 maybe cases here in NS, people staying home will help prevent more from spreading, which makes sense.

Common sense with a lot of this.  Goal is to limit potential contact and to limit spread.

Our governor here got a letter from some 600 physicians across the state urging him to enact a shelter in place order.  

People overreact and get stupid.  Some in leadership positions that show they truly have no business being where they are and only serve to stir more chaos.  I had to look up exactly what a "shelter in place order" would mean.  

From everything I have been able to find, that simply means you stay in, all dining places closed all businesses that are not a necessity closed, however essentials remain open.  Pharmacies, grocery stores, etc would still be open and people would still be able to shop for necessities.

Unfortunately panic and hysteria lead folks to act stupid.

You are so right William, between social media stupidity posts and just plain stupid people, it causes panic. While I was down south a friend text me a post someone put on fb that the liquor stores were closing down last Wednesday, guess what everyone did ?? Ya they panicked and went and bought all they could. The NS liquor stores were not closing down they were just going to reduce their hours. But because of someone’s stupidity, it caused unnecessary panic. I am allowed out on my own property just not wanted in public, which I have no problem with.

I don't understand the way people are reacting to self isolation. We have seen worse times - have we forgotten? Having households which are illness free is in itself a wonderful thing.
