What "concerned me" is this: I am not fluent in Spanish but I do have a pretty good comprehensive level and they were chatting about the 15 or so family members who were planning to "come and stay" with them this weekend...they were going to make a party of it all and were stocking up.
Nothing "illegal" about that but what the heck: if we're trying to manage the outbreak is this the best way to do it? Once people are "over here" that's that basically...I know the borders can't be closed but they COULD and SHOULD start restricting passage for reasons other than work or necessity IMO.
