    Our governor issued a Stay at Home order until June 10th this past Monday - although I'm dreading it to some extent, I think it was the right move. I think it is helpful for people to know what's ahead so they can plan accordingly. I think the extended date is much better than setting incremental dates that are moving targets. And he can always rescind the order if things improve quicker than the current projections.


    BTW - Since there are multiple threads on this subject in this forum, I'm going to move this thread to 'Wonder at the Powers That Be'. At this point, that's probably where it should be.

    **ETA: Thread moved.

    I am sure Gov. DeWine (now an international superstar along with Dr. Amy Acton) will extend the "stay at home" order until April 30th tomorrow. The Ohio Attorney General is going after businesses that haven't shut down to challenge them as to why they think they're "essential." Number one on his list? Hobby Lobby! Go, Yost, go!

    Our business is essential, at least until the primary is through. There are only four of us actually in the office, everyone else is working remotely from home. I have lots to say about what we worked on today, but I will be diplomatic and say nothing. <insert eye roll> The Ohio Secretary of State was sued today by the League of Women Voters and the ACLU for the way he's finishing the March 17th Primary. I fear this will never end.

    Adam Schlesinger from Fountains of Wayne died today from Covid 19.

    Fountains of Wayne did "Stacy's Mom" in 2003. Adam Schlesinger also co-wrote the title track to Tom Hanks' "That Thing You Do."

    So far our Govenor hasn't issued a 'shelter in place' order. I don't really agree with him on this. Most people are staying home as much as possible. I'm still working, but we did put a sign on our door to please pay their bills online, by phone or put in our drop box. The people that did come in yesterday were elderly people that should have been staying home! Don't quite understand them!

    So far, my county hasn't had any cases. The case from my mom's nursing home, which is in another county, went to a hospital in my county though. Missouri has now had only 18 deaths and 1834 confirmed cases. I sure hope that stays low.

    No NMB - That isn't a typo. Our governor is a former physician so that may contribute to him being so cautious. Nevertheless, as I said before, I support his decision.
