Unfortunately America is going to have to repeat what Italy has done
For most it will be a difficult transition,but it will be temporary
as long as its done sooner than later
And we are seeing it
just today was announced no travel to and from Europe
large public events are being canceled.
I'm convinced we wont see a 'cure' in the form of a vaccine anytime this year
what we will see is yet to pass in numbers and severity, i do hope the mortality count is low
i'm more worried about a surge of cases partially due to complacency in our society
what we need is early voluntary action, through a suspension social activities for a while.

We have to get on board,there is no time to discuss, the house is on fire.

Waiting for a Gubment mandate is too late, we are already behind the ball.

Even Italy is positioned to handle that well, we are not. I'm not saying we do not take all the precautions we can, but there are limits in the US that other countries can do.

Stay home,and wash your hands often if you must be out.
Avoid confined public spaces
Can American do that?
pretty sure it can be done

Staying home is based on incrementally conditions. Right now at my work in southern WA we are looking at different approaches, we tell people IF you can do your work from home stay home, but if one person comes positive in our company or close to it then we will shutdown for 2 weeks.

This is why it is so important we act collectively
And exactly what personal responsibility to others means:
Koreans,for example (i've never been), tend to be very socially conscious and go out of their way to reduce the risks to others.
Most Koreans will readily admit they wear masks, not only to protect themselves, but primarily to help protect others.
Companies,(if they care about their employees) should implement measures to limit exposure.
If that isn't done ,one has to make a judgement call.

If anyone tells me they are uncomfortable they can take PTO, if we tell people to go home then I think we will work something out like maybe 50/50 PTO/overhead, if we shut down I think emergency PTO kicks in.

That is assuming each employee isn't asymptomatic
which is the wrong approach
Everyone has to behave as if they have the virus for this to work
2 months of grief is much better than 8 or 10

Actually full shut down of 2 weeks is on the table with full pay. There are zero cases in my area, but if that even goes to 1 we will most likely shut down for two weeks. This is a big deal since I have foreigner students from all over the world.

Would be better if there were one case
odd of me to say, but at least it would kick people in the butt to take precautions
I would assume there are cases,that if pre-emptive controls are not taken immediately, that 1 will be more in the area of 20
Again,the house is on fire there is not time to dawdle.

In my area, a bit more advanced scenario
Schools are closed,pretty much everything is closing shop rapidly,glad i was ahead of the loop
shelves are being completely emptied
iv'e been told the border will close soon,that bus services may run at half capacity
full gong-show,but imo neccessary if we are to see this virus out
My fear though is the elephant in the room
How much disruption can the economy take
even though the two are linked
this to me massively dwarfs the effects of Covid-19
