I don't know what the population density is where you live, but here in my NYC 'burb, there's ample room for folks to take a walk, ride a bike, and do
so in a manner that will not bring anybody in close proximity to one another. I have been taking walks outside to enjoy the nice weather and clear my
head. I chose to live someplace with no high-rise apartment complexes, a fairly low population density, in a quiet part of town where there are plenty
of secondary & tertiary roads with wide sidewalks (on both sides of the street) and very little movement on our streets, even before COVID.
So no, have to disagree with about closeting people inside for two straight weeks. If the place you live accommodates foot and bike traffic in a way
that doesn't cram people together, then nobody can deny you the right to go outside and catch some fresh air. In parts of NYC, there's simply no way
for that many people to move about and keep their social distancing, but that's what people that lived there signed up for, so they have to deal with
the repercussions. In that context, in that place, what you say has some applicability.
As for me, I chose for my family to not be living in an urban center, and have freedom of movement, and freedom from all the other overcrowding and
hassles that come with.
I'm going outside to walk and bike then, and short of the mayor, governor or president sending soldiers to forcibly quarantine me, nobody is going to
deprive me of that.
