This would be a perfect time for the PTB to come up with a universal four day work week. Three day weekends would help the travel and tourism industry and restaurants immensely once we come out of this.
ooohhh nooo! I have seen the results of a 4 day work week, Marines scatter at the end of the fourth day, stay drunk 3 days and we spend the first day of the next week finding them and getting them out of jail, (jax Florida 1977)This would be a perfect time for the PTB to come up with a universal four day work week.

The big question for me is once you have it, are you immune and can you still transmit it?There is a test that will show that you have had the virus. Once you have gotten over it you can not transmit it and you can get back to your life without fear of transmitting it. I think that would be a good way of moving forward.
Plus a lot of people are surviving but coming out with permanent reduced lung function because of scarring in the lungs. I think a lot of people hear “mild” and think of a mild cold rather than “mild for something potentially fatal”.The big question for me is once you have it, are you immune and can you still transmit it?
Until that is really known, it is difficult to proceed with a solution.
^^^ THIS!I think it was our esteemed admin who expressed the desire to keep the political can of worms closed in this thread. Somewhere along the way someone didn't read the previous posts in the thread and started pulling on that lid. I'm not innocent of pulling a little on it myself. But then someone more recently blew that lid clean off and dug in with a shovel.
I agree with @mikeyMarine ... move it to the political forum or stop with the blame game that the stupidly biased media has so expertly brainwashed all of us with and stick with the OP and talk only about the markets, investing, and any affects the current ECONOMIC situation has had on your decisions. Leave the politics to the politicians since there are equal numbers of liars and cheaters on BOTH sides of the isle and ALL have ulterior motives in mind with everything they propose. And only some of it accidentally, it seems, benefits US.
media = a lot of mostly shyster used car and vacuum cleaner salesmen equivalents trying to move up in the world. There are a very few good honest reporters but they are usually buried most of the time and are hard to find. (btw- I WAS a vacuum cleaner salesman a long long time ago for a season and know whereof I speak. Being like that wasn't pleasant for me).
