    What about the people that “feel safe”,go out among others that “feel safe”,but then contact the disease and then maybe spread it around to everyone else,even those that don’t “feel safe” ?
    Even the people that don’t “feel safe” still have to get out to the stores to buy groceries,maybe go out to walk their Dogs,maybe even have essential jobs they have to go to,but don’t feel 100 % safe doing it.
    They don’t want the extra worry brought on by those that still see this as a ” deep state hoax” and don’t see this as a real problem that could devastate our little towns if it got out of hand.
    I think it’s the Me,Me,Me thing and political now, more than anything else,how people are feeling and talking about it,and If they were honest,they’d admit that.
    Check out some of the States and certain areas that have “opened up” recently,the positive-testing spikes they’ve seen in Texas and South Florida,despite FOX NEWS reporting that’s not happening.
    Statistics don’t lie.
    I myself do still get out,do things, and still work.
    But at times,I actually DON’ T “feel safe” because of what I see from others, when I see the idiot clusters of people together,no masks,no distancing, not following the requests and rules.
    I bet people working the hospitals,EMT’s,Fire Dept. and Law Enforcement don’t feel safe now.
    If you happen to request OR respect them,do you want them to,as you state in caps “STAY HOME” if you or your family happen to call and need them ?

      I know this may be shocking to you, but you can STAY HOME if you feel unsafe
