I think Florida could really have a problem because Gov. deSantis has been quite Trumpian in his approach to this--shutting down I-10 to Louisianans but coming very late to the game of halting the Spring Break revelry. And I still get the feeling from all my Florida relatives that they are rather casual about this. My niece lets her kids ride their bikes around the neighborhood (the beach in their county is closed) and they are teens--who knows where they go and what they do (like to a convenience store for drinks and snacks etc). On the other hand, their Mom, my niece, is a veterinarian and at her practice they have stopped pet owners from coming inside: They greet them in the parking lot and a tech carries the pet inside for treatment or whatever it came for.

Yeah folks need to take it seriously, nationwide, because the thing I fear is once NJ and NY/NYC reach their peak, and let's say the cases are on the decline along with the deaths... the situation stabilized in other words... how other states may impede the success of "X" state.

So in other words, let's say NJ/NY stabilize the situation, I fear that states that haven't, due to domestic travel, might cause a resurgence in certain stabilized states, as the peaks and troughs are not the same or uniformed across the nation.

I know the legality of things may be in question, but I really wish some domestic restrictions could be in place. Like I wouldn't want folks in areas that are seeing a rise in cases, such as Miami-Dade, coming to NJ/NY, and vice-versa.

I think its a systematic failure that ALL states were not uniformed in their approach. Its only going to extend this pandemic.

Its easy to prevent international folks (close air/ship/border routes), but I feel that domestic is the biggest challenge (state-to-state).

I wouldn't worry too much about this because no areas are going to "stabilize" until a sufficient portion of the population has achieved immmunity that the virus has trouble finding susceptible hosts. Even as the new case rates are coming down there will remain infected people in the communities--you don't have to worry about importing them from other states. It's just that the people they are in contact with will most already be immune so the rate at which the virus is spread will come down from its estimate 2.3 people/infected person to something less than 1.

What I worry about is all the susceptible people hiding in their New York homes and what happens when they come out. If they trickle out a few at a time, the rate of new cases may remain acceptably low. If they all come out at once because somebody blows an "all clear" signal, I expect a secondary peak in cases. Remember that the "shelter in place" policy is not so much to reduce the total number of cases over time but to lower the peak number of cases occuring at one time and stretch out the duration of the epidemic so that the hospitals will be able to handle the numbers at every point.

New York's Empire State Building lit up to honour first responders & medical professionals. It lit up like an ambulance in honor of those on the front lines. The top was lit red, with revolving red and white lights circling the mast to resemble a siren, US reported over 163,000 positive cases on March 30.

I've been amazed at the low numbers in Florida given the strong connections to the tri-state. But it's probably just a matter of time.
