I have changed my mind , arguments against travel are compelling to me .
Why take a chance of endangering your self or others , stay home , hunker down
and survive

Lets all do our part to shut this virus down so we can all get back to RVing

Since the original poster's signature was in WA, we should note that the state has closed all state campgrounds, all DNR and Forest Service land to camping. So, I guess the answer is you can't go camping even if you want to.

Stay home, stay safe

This is a bitter pill to get down. This was a late announcement, and we wonder what has driven it. DNR, Federal forest Service land is not that crowded, especially this time of year, something about snow/mud. If you don't live in Washington, you haven't been exposed to our Governor's speeches, we really need some ADULT Super vision in our government...... Hey, if you can get out, it may not be a bad idea.

It was driven because people are not staying home. People are taking it like vacation, traveling to small towns like Ocean Shores or Chelan. These places don't have the facilities to even care for the residents of these areas. So, if you feel great but actually have the virus, then you go somewhere and get gas or stop at a store, you now possibly infected residents of that area. You go home after your vacation, camp trip, etc. But that town now has to deal with more sick people that would not have gotten sick had you stayed home in the first place. That is why they are urging everyone to stay home as much as possible. If we stop spreading the virus, maybe we can all get back to normal. Did you see as of 3/23 there are now 499 confirmed deaths? That is going up because people are not staying home.

I would also guess that a lot of people that read this RV blog are retired. If you are retired, older, have any kind of compromised immune system, stay home!!

If you read the latest news you will also find out about the unintended consequences of a "stay at home" order. It appears that the people of New York do not believe in actually staying at home. To them the stay at home order means to hop on a flight, in great numbers, and go to Florida. This is just what we need, people traveling from infected areas and coming down to my State to bring their infection with them.
We had to close the beaches because the college kids did not have enough sense to stay away from each other. Now we have to deal with a bunch of adults that feel that they know better than the experts. Perhaps these are the parents of the college kids. They are now talking about closing our State border because of these selfish idiots.

Apparently as a Floridian you have no cause for alarm.

Where we are staying the manager is stuck in Canada so her friend came to "watch the resort". Everyone has left or cancelled except for two couples. We were content to have no new arrivals and we are basically self-quarantined. Now the new arrival wanted to bring her son and we said no, then this morning her daughter-in-law dropped off a baby, then the other grandmother stopped by to see the baby, and later the daughter-in-law is coming to pick up the baby. When we confronted her she said she does this every day and we aren't stopping her "and it doesn't matter anyway because Floridians can't catch the virus".

As someone posted earlier, you can't fix stupid even with duct tape.

We reached out to the manager and she says her friend will not be bringing anyone on the property. If she continues we're all leaving.

Here in Wilmington NC all the areas beaches are now closed. In fact they just announced today that all short term rentals are to evacuate by Wednesday. The beaches were packed with tourists over the weekend. Apparently stay at home means take a vacation. Aside from buying up items from stores still trying to recover from the initial hording, I imagine we will see a spike in cases as a result of droves of people flocking here who decided their mini vacation was more important than the health of it's residents.

Ron, let us know how the Closing the State boarders work. There is only one way that can happen, but Americans have been Free for too long for many to put up with that.

Of course. Closing the border is about as enforceable as a stay at home order. One of the things suggested is to block airline travel out of NY coming to FL. As I said, common sense does not seem to work with some people.
