Default Stay at home

The Governor has issued a 30 day stat at home order for NC.
Is anyone else extremely upset about the consequences?
Discuss.

It has exemptions for outside activities. Anyone have clarification of this includes fishing and camping?

I'm ticked, but then again I'm one of those that doesn't think we should be told how to live, what risks to take etc.

I'm heading to Wilmington tomorrow from near Raleigh to boat/fish for the first time this year. Hope the ramps are open.

As to the decision: I find this a BIG over reach. This should be Local County decisions exclusively. The damage of a 30+ day stay at home to small businesses
will wreck the NC economy and destroy many people's entire way of life. 1200 per adult will be of little solace. The virus is bad this over reaction is so so so much worse.

I completely agree. I've not seen any evidence that this is really any worse than the flu. Other than italy, this virus is nowhere as bad in other countries as was previously forecast. As far as us, I'm not sure the cure is any better than the virus. Theres going to be a LOT of people hurting financially before this is all said and done.
Regarding fishing. The way I read it, any outdoor activity that keeps you 6' from other people is fine. Not sure about the boat ramps though. Private ones will be fine, not sure about state maintained

I am hoping fishing and turkey hunting are reasonable exceptions. Not sure what this means in totality but I am considered essential person as a GC. Ill be doing some moving around and I have jobs through about 3 counties to check on. Other than that, I have very little desire to interact with others in any kind of close proximity.

My business is already down 80% from this time last year. This is going to kill me. Oh, and I am still considered "essential" personnel.
As far as keeping me from fishing and boating, I ain't met anyone man enough to stop me in my 44 years.

I am going to agree with this. I am most concerned for NC businesses and employees.
30 days will shutter businesses and people will be desperately looking for food because they will be out of money. People with EBT cards may be exempt.
Have they not thought about all of the unemployed who now have no insurance???

These politicians don't know how businesses work. 99% of them are career politicians and get pd by the taxpayer whether or not our businesses are open or not. There is no way they can keep you from your business. There are things that need to be done whether the doors are open or not. They don't even think of some of the simple things like just getting mail and packages. Someone has to be there to accept them. These people don't have a clue what they are doing.

Somebody told Cooper to say this. Doesn't seem like much has changed from previous orders. Hell, our state run liquor stores aren't closed.

For those spending their quarantines fishing support your local tackle shops whenever and wherever you can, they're gonna need it - dare county listed them as essential businesses hoping the state feels the same way

This is exactly why any person or business should have 3 to 6 months of cash on hand or money in the bank to get by when the shit hits the fan.. If you can't survive for 30 days without going bankrupt is your own damn fault.

If people would have used common sense and followed the recommendations maybe these extreme measures wouldn't have been necessary. By making it mandatory, I'm not sure that it will change peoples habits but the stores will be closed. When this whole crisis started I was against shutting down the country. It's already hurting my business and it's going to get worse. When you have people fleeing areas of high covid19 concentration, going to other area and because some of these people are inflected it makes it harder to contain the virus. Once I learned about flattening the curve, social distances and seeing what was going on in Europe and in New York, I think it probably is the right thing to do. When we have enough test to determine who's contagious and who's not we can open things back up. Hopefully a lot sooner than later.

I hit the river a little while yesterday and this morning, caught some nice white bass, spotted bass and a smallmouth. Rather be at the beach house surf fishing or in the boat but it was a pretty morning at first light.
