15 Days to Slow the Spread

Yesterday I learned that today is Day 9 of the 15 Day Coronavirus Plan.  The Plan began on March 16th and will end of March 31st. 

I was amazed that we are 9 days into a 15 day plan and I didn't realize it. I guess they are making up things as they go along. I tried to watch the near daily coronavirus news conference last evening which went well over an hour. I am not sure what the point was because it seemed to ramble. I was struck by the dichotomy of the president saying we will reopen the country in weeks not months when earlier in the day others were saying to expect the coronavirus measures to last months and not weeks. 

Which is it? 

On the personal front, the battle continues. What is the battle against? Well, it is not so much against the virus as it is against the feeling of confinement and isolation. 

We have to do a better job fighting isolation. 

Yesterday the Governor of Maryland closed all non-essential businesses. Interestingly, liquor stores are considered essential, while golf courses are non-essential. I can practice good social distancing on a golf course--I am usually the one not on the fairway.

I note that the original Orioles Opening Day is two days away on March 26th. I am at least happy that I was able to get to Spring Training and see some Major League Baseball already this year. 

I can only wonder what today will bring.
