    Red face What is happening where you are located in terms of measures to stop spread of virus?

    Here in Mexico and especially the state of Jalisco where Lakeside Chapala is and Puerto Vallarta are, we are on a mandated lockdown. We cannot go out for leisure only essential business such as groceries, pharmacies, dr. visits, etc. Mandatory use of masks everywhere outside your home is in effect with warnings, fines or even jail time to enforce compliance.
    The Lakeside area is truly enforcing the measures to prevent spread. All restaurants are closed except for taking out or delivery. Non-essential stores are closed. You cannot enter our area at all unless you live here and prove it or have an essential business, food delivery, FedEx so forth. There are 3 entrances to this area and all are protected by sanitary checks we will call them or police blockades.

    Puerto Vallarta is having similar rules all resorts closed etc., they are the same state. This pretty much applies to all of Mexico almost all together with Jalisco being the absolute first state to start.
    It is hard but it has made a difference, we are told. At present we have no confirmed cases of Covid 19 as yet. The law is until May 30th with a revision to low numbered places on May 17th, so we may have some restrictions lifted then.
    Mexico city is hit hard, as is Tijuana, Baja and a few other states but nothing like the USA as yet anyway.

    It is hard but a necessity.
    I hear from my kids and Husband how it is in Massachusetts, so curious, how it is elsewhere.

    In NY, all non-essential businesses are closed. Restaurants are take-out only, but they changed the law so that they can sell cocktails to go. Liquor stores were deemed essential LOL.
    It is mandatory to wear a mask in public if social distancing is not possible.
    Mass transit is still running, but the governor just mandated that the NY City subways close from 1 am to 5am daily for sanitizing.
    Here on Long Island, most people are very good about social distancing and staying in. However, we have a large number of cases - 37,000 in my county alone.
    Testing is ramping up, with antibody testing now available.
    Schools have just been closed for the remainder of the school year.
    Like you said, it is hard but it's a necessity.

    In CT we kind of have the same restrictions as NY state and NJ. Plans are to begin to opening things up with restrictions beginning around May 20. My rural town has 4 positive cases and one Covid death. Only two towns in CT have no positive tests for covid one in the rural NE part and the town on my town's southern border.
