Damn if I'm hearing this right the State of Ohio is banning group gatherings of 100 or more.Evidently except for libraries/restuarants - hope the potential virus gets the memo.May have heard that wrong though

Which is why (like a lot of people) I have no frame of reference whether this is an underreaction, appropriate response, or an overreaction.
This is directly due to the lack of tests being done.  People are being sent home with flu-but-not-the-flu symptoms because they haven't traveled abroad and haven't officially been exposed to someone with the virus.....except since no one is tested, we don't know if we've been exposed.

I have zero doubt in my mind if we all sat around playing Whoa Nellie with some choice beverages, we'd have the time of our lives.

I'm unsure of the "when should someone get tested"

gotta have a decent reason above, "I feel funny and I'm worried"

The problem is people are seeking medical care with flu-like symptoms, but are being told they don't have the flu and it's uncertain what they have.  THOSE people are being sent home if they don't meet either of the (paltry) 2 parameters:
1 - have traveled abroad recently
2 - have been explosed to someone diagnosed with Coronavirus
.
#1 is fine, whatever, but there are plenty of domestic cases you could have been exposed to
#2 is the problem - with almost no one having been tested, none of us has knowingly been exposed to someone that's been diagnosed.

agreed. on the other hand, "i've had high fever for a couple days and flu/strep/etc is all negative" is a good candidate to test. right now, unless they've traveled abroad, come in contact with a known infected person which they can name, or are hospitalization sick, those people aren't being tested.

My health clinic called today to 'prescreen' me for coronavirus as I have a pre-op physical next Monday (for cataract surgery).  I was told they are limiting patients to have only one person accompany them to appointments.  I was asked about respiratory problems in the last 14 days or a fever above 100.  I am beginning to wonder if my eye doc is going to cancel / postpone my surgery for a later date.  

My daughter lives in Kentucky and they have cancelled school until March 25 and that could be extended, I believe.  My sons have kids in Alaska and Wyoming and so far, no school cancellations that I know of.  Kind of reminds me of the early 70's when both my dad and I had the Hong Kong flu and we stayed home but school was not cancelled and as far as I can remember no sports or other public events were cancelled.  This is the first time in my lifetime that I can remember major sports of all kinds being cancelled.  

My husband works at a truck stop here in Lincoln and I can't imagine how many people have come through his restaurant in the last two weeks and not just locals but the truckers coming from all over.  He keeps expecting the restaurant to be shut down but says as far as he knows, the truck stop has to stay open.  Imagine if truckers are quarantined - talk about an economic disaster waiting to happen.  

Makes me glad I recently ordered a ton of books that I have been missing from my library; at least I have something to read while stuck at home - not to mention all my DVD's I can watch.  No need to leave the house as I can even have my groceries delivered.

I would hope they are being sent home to self quarantine and are then tested if they gain more symptoms
I also hope the tests are being denied to some because there is fear of a shortage and they are making progress in producing tests for large scale.

I understand not giving tests if they are in short supply and some folks are just nervous and would like to be tested.  Heck, some folks would probably like to be tested every few days.

If you think you need to be tested, you should quarantine yourself until you qualify for the test or until you are confident you are not carrying.

Yes, let's trust the masses to act responsibly.  For the first time in human history.

I think the hope is that with an ultra-aggressive response up front, that we'll contain the spread until we get into warmer weather and hopefully this thing naturally tapers off.

I'm surprised though. In my 41 years on the planet, I've never seen anything like this. Which is why (like a lot of people) I have no frame of reference whether this is an underreaction, appropriate response, or an overreaction.
We have had HIV which started mysteriously circa 1980. We had swine flu in 1976 under Gerald Ford, who rolled out a huge government sponsored swine flu vaccine program. I stood in line for that at our local hospital. These events never resulted in widespread cancellation of mass gatherings or sports events.

I too am curious if the spread will slow with warming weather, but then I read an article asserting that COVID-19 spreads just fine in Singapore and Australia.

My secretary was out all week with a respiratory issue, loss of voice, migraine, and fever. Tests for influenza and strep proved negative. No other test was offered.
