I don't know what to do. Gonna be pretty out by the cape tomorrow with light winds.
As a fellow fisherman In my humble opinion I would not go. I think the right civic duty thing to do right now is stay home.

I did not want to say anything as I get Killed on this site but I agree. This is why this proclamation is frustrating, scare tactics instead of just proclaiming the intent. If we can all just power through 4-8 weeks it will be ok.

Iíll stay here and fish the Pamlico. Still sad. Whether I drop the boat from the lift and fish or trailer 20 or 90 miles east, itís all the same. Me and my dogs and all I do is touch the gas pump, truck door and throttle on the boat. And as far away from people as I can get.

WHAT? Civic duty? Pretend or act like your infected, spend your day avoiding contact with fellow citizens . If you follow guidelines your gouch. I'd think most of the time is out on the water. I'm not seeing an issue unless its impossible to do without putting yourself or others at risk , again acting like your a carrier. If you see your day as not being able to do so, then don't go.
Its out duty as a civilized society to be mindful of your fellow man, if thats not compromised go fishing. WTF

Carteret general has long been bashed by the locals as the last place they want to go and a terrible healthcare provider and most locals still would keep driving. As a dad with two kids born there and have quite a lot of experience in hospitals, it's still a premier provider. I wonder when people will start figuring out the consolidation of health care is the problem, not where you go when you get ill?

And I've got a LOT of time in with NCMH, Duke, REX and Wake Med!
I just had a VERY invasive procedure performed there. 3 hrs under anesthesia. My outcome is off the charts positive. Fantastic nursing staff, great surgeon, incredible preop class and postop follow up. This is an incredibly well run hospital. Small, but incredibly well run.

Good as the trout bite has been here lately why would you want to go anywhere else?

Guys, those of you that live here continue to avoid contact with others, wash your hands, and if you develo some type of respiratory illness....stay home and recover.
For those of you that don’t live in the area full time; just stay home for a couple of weeks!!!
The ocean isn’t going anywhere, the fish don’t care, and you can come and get them later.
We need to minimize the spread of this virus and keep our capacity to treat those who become severely ill.
Our population consists of quite a few retirees and those close to that age; most of those have other
chronic medical issues or immunocompromised states.
Let’s get through this !!!

In case people don't realize, every community complains about their own hospital. The grass is always greener too.

So I'm guessing we cant travel down to belhaven, or some other isolated creek to go fishing during all of this? I can understand not fishing in crowds say like a pier, but what is the consensus on driving down 100 miles to fish a quiet ramp and creek? Gas business is so slow, I got told to stay at home this morning

So statistically we can expect 8 more cases and about 1 hospitalization.
Look I donít know when we should start to relax some of the restrictions but we have to remember that these restrictions are supposed to slow the infection rate not eliminate it. That is going to be impossible. We arenít seeing an exponential rise is case rate which is good. But weíre not going to be able to stay in our bunkers until there are zero new infections. Simply because that will likely not happen for months and months if at all. Again the idea is to slow infection rate and lower and prolong the curve in order to not overwhelm the system. Which is different than saying everyone stay home until we have eliminated all risk or a vaccine has been developed. Thatís just not possible not only for the economy but for the sanity of everyone.

Carteret county has seven (7) ventilators (as told to me by a nurse who works there).

Anyone who thinks this is all fake news has been watching too much fake news. No, it won't be done in 6 weeks but if enough people and real leaders take it seriously, it won't be anywhere near as bad as it would have been with the "....weíre going to be pretty soon at only five people. And we could be at just one or two people over the next short period of time" mentality in vogue.

Has anyone tried looking at the numbers themselves instead of just repeating the media hype?

Numbers like total population vs. infected? Worldwide or by country, region, state, or city? If that doesn't make you go hmm, take it a step further and drill down to numbers of infected vs. serious illness for the same metrics.

Just looked: 140K infected so far and 2400 dead so far. Yup, just a lot of media hype.

Here's a site that gives worldwide numbers by country. You can click on a country to drill down to its daily stats:
https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

And if you are really interested into digging into the numbers, there's this one:
