Sure we can have some news from the web but i think they could not be full true
Here in Quebec at midnight the 24 then in less then 24 hours all business and store who are not essentials have to be close just to the 13 of april, we are under Emergency measure, the grocery and some other stores who are see as essentials have to let depending of them size to let only x customers enter at time others have to line up ouside in many place like grocery under security watch.
Non gang can gather more then 4-5 persons at time and then need to have about 2 meters ( 6 feets ) between each others.
Already some shops have started to major up some items prices because the abuse of some stupids since the last 2 weeks
I eard in Ontario it's supposed to be about the same, and they said we also have about the sames restrictions as they have in New-York city
And how are things in your area, contry for your parts guys ?
I operate a COVID-19 screening center in my state in America. We found yesterday one of my employees was lying about symptoms and may have exposed the entire operation. The individual is being tested today, if that comes back positive, the rest of us will be tested and then quarantined.
It’s not worth lying or hiding about having a symptom or symptoms. No one can afford to be selfish during this time.
we have been on strict quarantine orders here in belgium, no one can go further than just the store unless for good reasons, 30 min max in a store, all non essential stores closed, you can go outside to the parks but only with family or 1 friend, been like this for about a week, they want to extend the time to about the end of april now, so basecly home arrest here
Total lockdown here in Oman. Official -ahem- numbers are still very low. Less than a hundred cases and no deaths. Hoping they're at least a little bit accurate. On spring break atm and gearing up for remote teaching/learning when we go back to work mid April.
If you want more official numbers and updates around the world add WHO as a contact (+41 79893 1892) then send "Hi" as a WhatsApp message. Interesting times!
In Arizona, there's no official quarantine yet, but most businesses are taking it upon themselves to shut down regardless, other than restaurants. The City of Tucson has ordered restaurants to be take-out only, and taken a few other steps, but generally we're not doing as much as we should be, here. People seem to have gotten the message, though. Was at the mall yesterday as I had a minor shoe emergency, and have never seen the place so dead. 80%+ of the shops were closed.
Still working. Gas and Oil equipment manufacturing plant with 100+ shop employees + 30-40 office staff. Think it's just a matter of time before they shut down till this blows over. Hoping house prices tank 30-50% b/c of this, i'm ready to buy.
In Germany we are strongly advised to stay at home and only do necessary things like shopping or a doctors visit. And no group bigger than 2 (but families) autoside are allowed together. You see much less traffic and people on the streets. You can still do normal shopping and ppl. try to keep the suggested distance wherever possible. The toiletpaper hoarders are a real thing but those empty storeshelves make for some odd feelings. Any other shops, barbers, restaurants and such are closed.
My entire state is on a "stay health, stay home" order unless you're deemed essential. My state has ramped up COVID testing dramatically, and anyone who drives up we screen and if you either A) Have a fever AND cough, or B) Have shortness of breath, you're tested. We will likely very soon get to the point where all parameters are removed and anyone who drives through my site will be tested. We have had countless positive results each day for over a week now. The police at present aren't actively fining or arresting anyone, relying on the public's due diligence.

Today the provincial gouvernement closed 8 large zone where the virus have not hit or about not hit, they put barrage on the roads and let pass in and out only thoses who work for the essential as transport for food, medical and some other things who are essential, sure all emergency units or medical are allow to pass. Also they put a high surveillance all along the borders with USA, as you probably know a lot of illegal immigrants have cross the borders to enter in Canada, now they cannot anymore all are send back to the USA in the autority hands
Out here in the Netherlands the streets are empty. The hospitals are filled with gasping people, mostly in the age of 60+. Soon there will not be enough respiratory equipment available, some IC-patients have already been moved to Germany. Doctors are speaking about "triage". Find out what it means, its good to be prepared. But the sun is shining, summer is comin. Enjoy life, respect other people. Spike
Here in Czech Republic the government has declared fairly strict rules to slow down virus spread. Mandatory covering your face when in public with a mask or at least piece of clothing, severely restricting movement in public, closing schools, shops, almost all public services. Our main issue is lack of personal protective equipment for medical staff which is essential for healthcare to not shut down. So far the progress goes fairly well, although we anticipate the main hit in next two weeks. Inspired by South Korea, patient testing is ramping up and indications for testing are loosened up as lab capacity goes up. Plan is to test almost everyone potentially infected together with thorough tracing and isolating the infected so that people can slowly get back to work and economy lifts up again as it's not just medical issue but also socio-economic.
