A business partner and friend of mine messaged me to call him ASAP. URGENT! Thinking it was business-related, what he told me took me by surprise. A family member of his just got out of a meeting, with the PRESIDENT, and told him that the US is about to go into martial law.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including sections 201 and 301 of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) and consistent with section 1135 of the Social Security Act (SSA), as amended (42 U.S.C. 1320b-5), do hereby find and proclaim that the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States constitutes a national emergency, beginning March 1, 2020.

What possible purpose would that have? Recommending that we all self-quarantine to help slow down the spread is one thing, I think you'd see a major uprising if it led to country-wide curfews.
Nothing we can do but ride it out and hope it does not affect anyone close to us.
