ETA #2 - RT article from hours ago
The messages, citing insider information from “military friends up in DC,” and warning of nothing less than a “two week mandatory quarantine for the nation,” fell on fertile ground. It immediately became a hot topic on social media as people posted thousands of messages on the topic. Some rushed to break the “bad news” or to wonder if anyone else received the disturbing message. Others said that many of their friends forwarded the messages to them.

If they're going to implement Martial Law, why would they announce it on TV ? 🎯 🤧 😷

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.

If that's what it is, then that's what it is. If mods want to delete the thread, have at it. I trust my source... perhaps he was misled as well.

Folks, we saw the president walk out with the heads of CVS, Walgreens and WalMart. They have all signed on to help the US. To stay open. He just reversed legislation to allow for trucking to by pass restrictions.
The government has done this in waves.
First it was colleges. Then local schools. Then it was sports. Then theme parks. Then international air travel. Now it is restaurants and bars. Next it will be curfews. Then it will be domestic travel. If you do it over the course of two-three weeks it is 'accepted' much easier by the general public..as well as the media. I am sure CNN has the bits cued up when it is finally announced.
I know that in the industry I am in people are very very worried that everything in the US will effectively shut down for the next 2-3 months.
Nothing we can do but ride it out and hope it does not affect anyone close to us.
Remember, they shut down Boston over a terror attack.
