    For those not wanting to read the article this is an excerpt from it regarding penalties for breaking it.

    Starting Thursday morning, border officers will begin informing all returning Canadians and permanent residents of the new orders and telling them that they're forbidden to stop along the way.
    Her department said maximum penalties for failing to comply with the order include a fine of up to $750,000 and/or imprisonment for six months. If someone jeopardizes another's life "while wilfully or recklessly contravening the act" the penalties are even greater: $1 million or three years in prison, or both.

    That should make a few eyes water.

    Another reason I decided to stay home. We had a client's wife come back from vacation (came through Pearson airport) a week and a half ago during mid renovation of their house. 2 of our guys were sent to the job the next days to follow..... What about the 14 day quarantine???Zero F's given by the home owner and my boss.

    Another coworker and I were pretty P'd off and refused to be in contact with that job and now our other 2 coworkers.

    DRAMA.... But necessary. So frustrating.

    I know of neighbours coming home from March break vacations, not self isolating, and then seeing them drinking beers with friends in the garage a few days later.

    Really frustrating ( cause I also want to drink beers with my neighbours) when I'm trying everything I can to stop from spreading this virus, and some people just don't F-ing care in the slightest.

    Yes, you are probably right that it does vary from place to place. Unfortunately there still are plenty of reports out of the UK showing very irresponsible behavior too. Possibly the veneer is thinner for some than others wherever you are. Like you say, there are bright spots however.

    I do have to feel sorry for the position DR. Fauci is in.

    While I was on my road trip March 12-20 I met a few full time RVers. Things were not threatening at the time that I met them. I'm wondering what people with that lifestyle are going through with I think all of the state parks in the SW being closed. I think that they could probably use BLM, but sooner or later they're going to need dump stations etc. I'll bet very few factored a pandemic into their lifestyle choice.

    We had a bit of nervousness when we were camping in the desert and I realized that we only had two gallons of water left, and all of the bottled water in the groceries had been hoarded. Fortunately we found a RO filtered water machine and filled all of our bottles.

    Maybe the private rv camps are still open
    Even better advise, " don't impede on a 850# Harley with me aboard, then I don't care what your driving, my 10 takes care of it"

    Well, made my first foray into the great unknown world of today this AM. Only outside activity to date has been putting recycling at the curb and bringing the tubs back and daily feeding of the outside cats. I was gifted an N95 mask this morning and I took advantage and went to my local Safeway where I had been working part-time till last mid-January. I was appalled by the visible lack of attention to safeguard the employees and customers. Some employees were wearing masks, some not. No visible signs of wipes seen and at the self-checkout no attention to wiping down the equipment after each customer use. What bothered me most was that the attending clerk was my former shift boss and should have known better. She paid more attention to the people waiting to stay behind a taped line on the floor. I was wearing the mask and had plastic gloves on and noted that there were more customers w/out masks and fewer employees w/masks. To my knowledge, there have been no cases reported in my town as yet, or in the surrounding towns and I fear that too many people are a little too nonchalant in their attitude toward this crisis. Watching people's reactions to my mask-wearing was varied. I could tell that quite a few (with a goodly number of senior citizens in the count) were bemused to see anyone wearing a mask. A few had guarded looks of approval. I know the requests are to wear a mask if you think you are compromised but in my case being in the top danger group of age and diabetes I'll wear a mask to protect me from everyone when I do go out. Since I know I'll be quizzed by one of my sons on following the rules I did, when I got home, strip down in the laundry room and throw all of it in the washer, cap included. I'm all set for another week of no need to grocery shop and now with the mask, I can take a daily walk to the post office to pick up business mail for my other son (I do his books.) BUT I NEED THE LIBRARY TO BE OPEN! I"M GOING CRAZY WITH NOTHING GOOD TO READ! Don't suggest e-readers I prefer ink on paper.

    They shut down the resorts around here. I had a friend ice fishing in a fish house that is like a camper and told him he should isolate himself on the lake and enjoy fishing, when he told me that.
