I can't believe people put religion above science in a case like this.
I think the Georgia Governor just said its ok people for to still gather in large crowds for church.  No wonder Steve Harvey Family Feud is so popular down there.

This is science... not time for fairy tales.

On another note...I just saw a preview to a Dr. Phil show where some insufficiently_thoughtful_person on YouTube is licking toilet seats during this crisis... and she thinks she's an awesome star... 
what's that saying, "You are are what you lick"  or something along those lines.

I could have sworn I heard on the news in the background something about a reverend or pastor being arrested for conducting mass in a state with an ordered shutdown? If I heard right, because I only caught like half of it, every other word from 2 rooms away, I can well understand that if true, causing and enabling people to gather together for any reason en masse being taboo right now, as it should be, but what I can't understand is if someone was arrested and jailed for that pending arraignment, while they're being processed into the jail system, simultaneously, there's inmates sentenced for serious crimes being released, passing this clergyman from the opposite direction as he gets booked in! doh!

How does he get out? By climbing over the desk?

I didn't read this thread and, frankly, I'm stunned BK would even ask the question.  The total definition of "non-essential".

You may want to read the thread.  It has a shocking conclusion.

You're probably right...I only read the first few posts.  I'll get back to you on this one.

Great news indeed. I am sure all the supporting businesses will also stay open feeding the CGC machine. 

Now, does that mean you can drop orders off?

Well, since you seem to live in the highly contagious hot spot of Long Island, N.Y. :sick:;  I believe you won't be able to get anywhere close to CGC HQ's since they might not even let you cross the state line into Florida.  :gossip:  lol

Prediction:  CGC won't remain open for long during this pandemic.  The situation in parts of FLA is about to become how NYC was ten days ago. 

New cases grew by >1000 each of last 2 days. Bulk of them coming from the largest county Miami Dade.

+1. :(

It's probably because most of the Asian countries have lived through these kinds of pandemics before, and as a result, take the situation much more seriously and try to PROACTIVELY stop it as soon as possible before it gets totally uncontrollable and unmanageable.  Just take a look at their body counts in terms of new cases and deaths and they were able to plank the curve at realtively low numbers. :applause:

In comparison, North America seems to be taking the REACTIVE approach and waiting for the next event or indicator to show up first before deciding to take the next baby step to address the problem, almost in seeming fear of being seen as overreacting to the situation and having the general public complain too much.   :blahblah:  :blahblah:  doh!

No doubt Florida will wait to be like NYC or Italy before they finally get around to taking the appropriate steps to address the problem. :taptaptap: :sick:  :sick:  :screwy:

If they keep staff to ten or less they shouldn’t have a problem. They may work in shifts to keep grading going without breaking the mandate to keep groups to 10 or less.

This isn't original to me, but it's been pointed out that in WW2, during a crisis, we were asked to go into battle, and tens of thousands were killed and maimed.  They knew this, and did it anyway.  Today... we are only being asked to sit at home and watch TV.  It's really not the same thing.

Definitely not hard to figure out who had the much tougher assignment and made the bigger sacrifice in these two wars here. hm

The soldiers who fought overseas for their country thousands of miles away hoping to be able to return back home safely one day, or the hard done by citizens nowadays being asked to simply stay home so that they can win this war against the Covid-19 enemy sooner rather than later.  :facepalm:

Yep. The governor issued an order overruling local officials that were stopping religious services because of the number of people attending and the inability to be a proper distance from each other. The governor has issued an order that religious services cannot be shut down. [Facts not politics]

I decided to make a call today.  All customer services are staying home to make the calls.  All graders and shippers are working at the office.

It's no problem for all of us to submit the books.

We'd like to think that no leftover food goes to waste but in many cases, and I can't imagine why, it's actually illegal for a food vendor, restaurant, diner, etc., etc., to donate their leftover this and that to those that would benefit from it. My sister worked as an administrator at a college and one thing she oversaw was one of the cafeterias. Sometimes they'd have to throw out massive amounts of food, and of course they'd let the employees take what they wanted, but rules were that it couldn't be donated or brought elsewhere, even to the needy. I think it went beyond just the rules, into the actual laws against it if I remember right.

yep i am pretty sure that almost every single sit down restaurant that was forced to close lost all their food , except fo what little the owners were able to keep or give to friends

here in Michigan our Governor announced one day that all restaurants must close by 3:00 the next day , with less than 24 hours notice it is highly unlikely any food was served the next day except for breakfast establishments

i have no idea how anyone expects golf courses to survive the forced closures here in Michigan , they have already been closed all winter and now they need revenue to pay for mowing, watering .. everything 

the average water and tax bill alone for an average 18 hole course is $100,000 , and they can't let it go , if a golf green is let go for just one month it will take an entire year at least $10,000 to fix it

golf is an outdoor sport with at most four people in a group and seldom in close proximity unless they are in a cart together , i have heard that courses in North Carolina are offering seperate carts per person ... there is no reason for courses to be closed, maybe tournaments need to be postponed but not open play
