It's all about testing... 5,200 per million population vs 72 per million in the US.

Take note people because what Kriss posted above seems to be lost on a lot of our population. The numbers here in North America for people with the virus is now way higher than reported due to the failure to roll out widespread testing quick enough.

In the last day. There is going to be a lot of dumb people in North America either dead, or wishing they had heeded the advice to self-isolate as their Grandparents and parents are being buried with no funeral after this is all said and done.

I would think that liquor stores would fall under that banner.
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/coronavirus-new-york-liquor-stores-deemed-essential-under-cuomos-statewide-order/

I'm a little teary posting this. I mean I'm drunk but that's besides the point. God bless MY guv'nah. A great politician and a fine Italian. THIS is the kind of leadership we can all get behind. Except I guess for those fags in "recovery".


New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Friday announced an executive order that mandates 100% of the state's workforce "must stay home, excluding essential services," until further notice. That order does not apply to liquor stores, the New York State Liquor Store Association clarified later Friday.
"Liquor stores have been deemed an essential business and may remain open," the association said in a press release. "You do not need to reduce your workforce. This applies to all SLA licensed entities as per the SLA."
Beverage manufacturing, including alcoholic beverages, is also considered an essential operation, and is included under the state's list of exemptions, according to the SLA

Other exemptions from the executive order include shipping, media, warehousing, grocery and food production, pharmacies, healthcare providers, utilities, banks and related financial institutions. "Bars and restaurants are closed, but takeout can be ordered during the period of closure," the governor's website said.
"New York state on pause: Policies that assure uniform safety for everyone," Cuomo said at a press conference Friday. "Only essential businesses can have workers commuting to the job or on the job." 
California Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order Thursday directing all California residents to "stay home except for essential needs." The order shares similar restrictions to Cuomo's.
Newsom said "essential services" will remain open: Gas stations, pharmacies, grocery stores, farmers markets, food banks, convenience stores, take-out and delivery restaurants, banks, and laundromats or laundry services. Unlike in New York, in California liquor and wine can be sold in grocery stores. 
The California Retailers Association said it is "not commenting at this time" on whether liquor stores in the state are also considered "essential services."
The Wine Institute, which advocates for wineries in California, said in a press release Thursday that it has confirmed with the governor's office that winery and vineyard operations are allowed to continue during the shelter in place order because they fall under "the Food and Agriculture Sector critical infrastructure plan."
"The federal government has identified 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, economic security, public health or safety, or any combination thereof," the governor's order states.
I order that Californians working in these 16 critical infrastructure sectors may continue their work because of the importance of these sectors to California's health and well-being."The Institute said it is working with the Governor to "reduce the exposure and spread of the disease by limiting visitor access to winery tasting rooms for purchase and pick up only, intensifying cleaning and sanitation procedures and following the guidance of the CDC and California Department of Health."
"Wineries are still open for operation at this time and wine may be purchased online from winery websites."

Sounds like everyone is essential except for pro athletes, personal trainers and bartenders.

I’m guessing that was taken out of context. I’d love to see the video.

They showed a lady on the news here tonight who says she has it even though her test came back negative. The reporter kept saying false negative.

Did Trump really declare New York a disaster? I heard a report the military is moving in and taking over sports facilities and hotels to convert them into hospitals.

I saw it reported last night that GameStop was saying they are an essential business and need to stay open.


I saw it reported today that the store “at home” is going to switch to curbside pick up for a week at least locally here.


Personally neither of these seem essential. I can understand grocery stores, pharmacies and then a select home improvement stores and banks. But a video game store that sells toys and a furniture store?

GameStop is saying they are essential because of the teleworking situation, and they sell a few things that could be useful.  It's a stretch, but Best Buy has lines down the block for the same reason.  GameStop's employees turned them in though and started a social media campaign about how horrible their employer is.  Long before this, I heard that GameStop was a living nightmare to work for.

Watched a stupid young cunt interviewed outside a GameStop (or an ebgames, can't remember which one) last night in a lineup for a new video game. "Yeah I live with my elderly grandparents but I'm being extra careful. Because this video game..."

Holy fuck. Hope that stupid cunt got hit by a bus on the way home from getting her precious game.
