Yep, states were acting long before the National Emergency as was the country on a National level. We saw this in New York and here in Florida.  But doing things such as curfews and perhaps involuntary quarantining someone legally, etc. is now possible.

It blows my mind, that people, in general, can't be forced to undergo treatment for communicable diseases.

Example.

On Friday, I was scheduled to treat a young man for syphilis.

This guy is also HIV positive.

I spoke to him at 0805, to confirm his 0900 appointment. I had already told him, he tested positive for syphilis.

He assured me, he would keep his appointment.

He was a no show.

At 0920, I called him and got voice mail.

An employee from the state health department, then knocked on his door, and got no response.

This guy only "sometimes" uses condoms.

He is out spreading HIV and syphilis, and there is nothing to be done.

Would I trust this guy to self-isolate with coronavirus?

Nope.

The selfishness of some, is stunning.

Yes.  One more notch in my case for losing hope in humanity.  😞

Noooo.

The selfish have always been with us, Tweety.

Think of yourself, and your coworkers and fellow nurses.

You are showing up to work, as they are, knowing that your job puts you at greater risk for coronavirus.

But you do, it.

That is a selfless act.

That restores my faith in humanity.

Sanders told those watching at home to visit YouTube -- where the first search result for "Joe Biden Social Security" is a video posted by Sanders' campaign in which Biden says to "put all of it on the table." 

Biden said he was willing to put changes to Social Security on the table "in order to get the kinds of changes we need on other things related." 

"But we did not cut it," Biden said.

"I know," Sanders shot back, "because people like me helped stop that."

The KY primary has been pushed back from May 19, to a date in June, due to coronavirus.

And get this, Mitch McConnell has asked Amy McGrath to pull her campaign ads, because according to Mitch, it is "tasteless" to run such ads during this crisis.

Sure, Mitch.

These Republicans are pathetic!

Mitch should be excited to have some taste in his mouth besides orange cupcake and lies.

If anybody is working in his office tomorrow, I will tell them the only thing this Kentucky resident finds tasteless, is Trump's incompetent response to coronavirus.

If Mitch can't take the rigors of campaigning, he should drop out.

Governor Dunleavy of Alaska

Governors are the game in the absence of strong national leadership...

Alaska is in trouble with their tall Trump. 

The campaign is irrelevant for most people now...Biden is going to have to figure out how to embrace Medicare for all in the recovery from a national health crisis.
