The Chairman of the County Commissioners announced yesterday that the county would be on total lockdown as of midnight last night.  In her statement, she made the point that the 26 cities (mostly towns) in the county had bought in to the plan and support it fully.  I found the unanimity remarkable; it gives the residents of the county an idea of just how serious this is.  The county has the 6th most cases of the counties in Georgia (it is the second most populous) -- and so far only one death.  Gwinnett county is primarily a county of suburbs with only one city with a population over 30,000.  The county had been sheltering in place.  I'm glad to see this move.  I think it will help keep the deaths low, and perhaps the cases, as well.

How can they do a complete lockdown? How is that different from sheltering in place?  We can leave to buy groceries, gas, go to the doctor, and walk on our own block. We can’t go to parks, drive to other cities without reason or do any non essential shopping.

You hit it.  The parks were open.  And some people, like the plumber contractor next door, were still working.  As I understand, only essential personnel can be on the streets, except to get groceries or medicine or a pet emergency (I was pleased to see that listed).  All non-essential businesses must close.  Since I haven't been out, I don't really know what was open. 

We can walk in our neighborhood, being aware of social distancing.  When I took my camera for a walk today, I saw only two other walkers.  We very consciously walked on opposite sides of the street.

I saw 11 people and two bike riders on my walk today. People are still having their yards serviced. Two were being mowed and someone else had a tree trimmer, all outside. Plumbers can come in because those are considered emergencies. Technically, it’s not a lockdown, it’s a shelter in place. A lockdown means  a 100% quarantine.  As long as it works, it doesn’t matter what it’s called.

I am hoping to leave home Thursday for food. Be gone for shorter time and carrying baggy with hand wipes it. Taking Lift but avoiding bus as some homeless take it from.church to church that give help meals.
Maybe even washable gloves even tho it will be warm out.

I just checked it.  It's called a stay at home order.  I wasn't able to get out to walk today, so I don't know who else was walking.  I know some of my neighbors have to walk their dogs, so I presume they were out.

You certainly saw more out Saturday than I did, but you may have walked earlier in the day.  It was about 4:30 when I left home and about 6 when I returned.

I am curious about tomorrow.  I have a conference call from my boss tomorrow. Perhaps I can get out later in the day.

With the temperature hitting 85, that was not a good time to take a walk here, so I waited until it cooled a little bit (or at least until the streets had more shade so it seemed cooler).
