Just got back to Illinois from 2 months in FL. interrupted by campground closings. Haven't been on the forum for a long time. Just wondering how you are coping and responding to the Corona Virus?
We decided about a week ago to get the heck home not knowing what measures would be taken. We did OK but just a step ahead of closings and the Illinois lockdown.

Best advise could be if you are currently camping and in a campground think about staying there until further notice. minimize interstate travel.

As campgrounds across the US take precautions to minimize exposure.
I doubt campgrounds will open in northern states for the 2020 season.
Situation in States is changing by the day not week.

Current WHO data
“It took 67 days from the first reported case to reach the first 100,000 cases, 11 days for the second 100,000 and just four days for the third 100,000,"

No panic, minimize risk, stay safe.

Here's how I see the virus using a shooter analogy.

1.Shelter in place means stop. Look around. Duck into the safest place and sit still.

2.Until we know better what we're up against, don't underestimate your chances (or bring attention to yourself and the hundreds with you). Maybe the shooter is right outside that door! And maybe he ain't. Maybe there's more than one! Maybe he's on the other side of the church. So get safe, get aware, and be ready for your safe escape. Don't open the door and yell "hey hoax shooter!"

3. Keep getting safer. Trust the facts. Leave your conspiracies on the shelf for the moment.

You didn't do what is asked....shelter in place. Florida to Illinois for no reason IMO.

+1 and don't be stupid or think you are invincible. It's a horrible death with no cure (right now) so why chance it.

My advice would be use common sense and follow the CDC guidlines.
Wash your hands often, stay away from people, don't or limit touching surfaces and don't touch your face. Then wash your hands again.

I am taking advantage of the situation and staying clear of everyone. Since I have an immune disorder, I need to take precautions..

I had a stem cell transplant in October and my wife and I had to hunker down for 90 days. Released in Jan and back at it now, especially because of a impaired immune system. My point is it can be done but not easy.

I really feel for the sick and the people losing their income, and small business people who are all going to suffer.

If like me you are a full timer who moves from time to time CALL AHEAD.

Please note, Jayco, no one approves of your unnecessary travel. Coronavirus isn’t a game. It can, and has, killed.
