There are still restrictions on some things. Stores are open with masks required. Gyms and Salons are going to have to wait a week I think.

Hell, enjoy the death. Lots of death. As our esteemed President says

Easy prediction: Lots of people immediately start acting as if everything is back to normal, big spike in new cases a couple of weeks from now. As society we seem way to immature to deal with this without being forced to do so.

Yup. As much as I'm dying (phrasing?) to go back to work, as part of the metro Detroit region, I really think this is too soon. I have nothing bad to say about how Whitmer has handled things so far, this might be the first time she goofed with Corona.

I love being wrong. Hopefully I am about this.

Not much choice.  GOP control of both houses.  The Stay-at-home order which was fairly comprehensive had been in effect since April 9. It's not like other states where the government dicked around before doing a half-assed lockdown.

And Michigan numbers have sort of crested.  It was an early hot spot where it even had more numbers than California and was no 3 or 4 for a time, but other states now have surpassed or double the cases.

Anyhow most of th lock down is being lifted in 2 weeks but there will still be some restrictions still be in place indefinetly.

No, I wouldn't say most do not follow the guidelines. In fact, I'd say most DO follow the guidelines.

Squeaky wheels and all that, the noisiest ones, the ones we see disobeying all social responsibility, are a minority, but the most visible. It's the shopping cart test. There have always been assholes who can't even be bothered to put their cart up in the corral one space away in the lot... but most people do the right thing.

That's not to say those assholes can't be deadly, but I'd hope their elders tell them to get lost and not visit/interact because plague rats be plaguing. I'd even go so far as to say some of those plague rats, when feeling sick, will self-isolate, if only because they'll be miserable.

Many restaurants will re-open, but the real business won't return for months. The crowded ones you see will be the idiots that flaunt the social distancing just to stick it to the "worry warts" and those places will be few and far between - it'll seem like everybody on the planet is out crowding in bars and restaurants, but in reality, that will be a handful of locations in each county. Overall, I'd be surprised if they manage 10% of the pre-COVID-19 business they had.

Leading up to the stay-at-home lockdown, I noticed the roads were a lot less crowded as businesses voluntarily allowed workers to work from home, and people were not going to dine-in to eat.

Oh.... and Kent county, home to most of the "reopen" idiots that protested in Lansing, continues to be a relative hotspot, recording more new cases than Detroit and the Metro area combined today.

On topic, yeah I can't wait to hear all the screeching, then the coughing, about "but but but! Why this not that!?"

To be fair, I honestly can't understand why restaurants (my field) are opening but salons/gyms/etc are not, doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense to my limited understanding of science and stuff. But I have a damn good understanding of food safety, and, well... Not a good idea IMHO.

San Diego restaurants, stores and beaches open - with safety measures in place.

Until about 2 years ago, we lived on Walled Lake. Moved closer to my daughter's high school for her final years(1 more).

My daughter's best friend used to live on Proud Lake (ok, right across the street from the boat launch).

Keep being cautious, and kudos to you for doing so. I've been ordering delivery here and there, but being smart about it, also only going to the grocery store once or maybe twice a month and being smart there. Livingston county is trumpland, though I live right in downtown Howell so it's kinda mixed as far as people wearing masks and being smart, maybe 75/25 smart/dumb.

I know Oakland county is probably #3 behind Detroit proper and the rest of Wayne county, but how is it in the more rural-ish areas where you're at, as far as actual numbers? I can't find any solid info city-by-city after a quick Google...

we're neck deep in Trump Land. It's not cool. In 2016, the Michigan Trump Headquarters (or whatever the fark it was called) was down on Pontiac Trail, about a 5 minute walk from our house.

Yeah. In my travels for work (visiting several stores across the middle of the state and in the thumb) I find that, depending on which town you're in, the mask percentage is anywhere from 20% to 65% right now. I ALWAYS wear it when working (well, I wear it from the time I get out of the car to the time I get back in). In the redneck towns, it's on the very low side and I get nasty looks. In the cities and bigger towns it's higher, but a lot of people are half-assing it. A lot of people in the urban areas wear them wrong.... Under the nose, super-loose, take them off to talk to friends or on their phone, etc..

I figure the second wave will be a shiatshow, assuming that we're not smack in the middle of the Second American Civil War when it hits.

They can suck it up. Until Dec. I was homeless for 2 1/2 years living under a bridge. My long hair was a winter survival choice. Now that summer is coming, I'm ready to get back to my normal #2 on the sides and #4 on top cut, but if I can go out and buy a hair straightener and take care of my bird's nest to look halfway presentable, they can deal with their roots showing that they're 55 and not still 25.

Not true. As someone mentioned early in this thread, the squeaky wheel gets the oil, i.e. the morons loudly refusing to wear masts and/or social distancing gets the media attention. Most people are following the guidelines. That's why the number of infections and deaths has steadily declined the past six weeks or so.

Now she can say, "Just doing what the Prez said!"

If you had been paying attention to Gov. Whitmer's comments regarding Cadet Bone Spur the past few weeks, you would know that she will never say something like that.

Washington had a pretty good handle on it, no new deaths.  And then this:

I live in Texas. It should allllll fall into the gulf. Humanity would be better off.
And bless Ozzy for pissing on the Alamo. Remember that.

unregenerate: hissatsu: Easy prediction: Lots of people immediately start acting as if everything is back to normal, big spike in new cases a couple of weeks from now. As society we seem way to immature to deal with this without being forced to do so.

Michigander here. Most people here didn't follow the guidelines anyway. We're boned.


Las Vegas here... I don't see this going well.

Yup. As much as I'm dying (phrasing?) to go back to work, as part of the metro Detroit region, I really think this is too soon. I have nothing bad to say about how Whitmer has handled things so far, this might be the first time she goofed with Corona.

I love being wrong. Hopefully I am about this.

Yeah, Commerce area here. It seems way too soon. My family and I will be hunkering down for a while.

I am, however, getting enjoyment from the angry housewives crying that hair salons stay closed a bit longer.

Ha! I was just in your neck of the woods last weekend fishing at proud lake, love that place!

On topic, yeah I can't wait to hear all the screeching, then the coughing, about "but but but! Why this not that!?"

To be fair, I honestly can't understand why restaurants (my field) are opening but salons/gyms/etc are not, doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense to my limited understanding of science and stuff. But I have a damn good understanding of food safety, and, well... Not a good idea IMHO.

/Grew up in Novi then walled lake, currently in Howell because reasons

Until about 2 years ago, we lived on Walled Lake. Moved closer to my daughter's high school for her final years(1 more).

My daughter's best friend used to live on Proud Lake (ok, right across the street from the boat launch).

We're being super cautious.  Haven't ordered take out in months.  Plan to continue that way.


Waterford here. As a kid used to go Canoeing on the Huron through Proud Lake every weekend. Still go fishing and kayaking there.

Wrong lesson learned, Gov. Karen. Peaceful protest at the capital?  Keep everyone locked up. Violent riots? Let the mob burn it all down.

I love how her mask is designed to look exactly like the lower half of her face and even moves when she talks. I deal with dark green paisley with shoelaces used as ties rather than ear loops, but that's some high-tech shiat.

I wish I could get some scum bag GOP cucks to pay me to move to California or Colorado. Because this state is Satan's nut sack.

stoli n coke: a_room_with_a_moose: Too early, but most folk aren't following the guidelines, anyway.

Now she can say, "Just doing what the Prez said!"

This was never going to be a year round lockdown, no matter how much some of yall wanted it to be.
It was never about outlasting the virus. All it was was a stall to get medical facilities geared up.


I would have agreed with that, until we saw places (New Zealand, Taiwan, Australia, Vietnam, South Korea) demonstrate that it IS possible to defeat the 'Rona.

I also agree that because its primary vector is stupid people now, the US has no hope at all without a vaccine (and possibly even with one).

This.
Don't think we need any lock down.
My it just needs to be legal to shoot people that can't stay away, can't shut up, have cell phones, want to go places that don't make sense right now.

This is just the tip.
I'd drown you in links as to how awful Texas is. But, I'm sleepy.
