Yeah, I’ve avoided my gym in Tuscaloosa despite them still being open and cleaning more than they were. Those places harbor germs.Also, it doesn’t seem like the senators are likely to submit to testing. I can’t believe the gym was even open. Very irresponsible.
I spent a lot of years in gyms, but I finally got tired of wiping everyone’s sweat off the benches so I built a home gym - zero regrets. I’ll never set foot in a gym again. As I’ve watched more gyms near me close their doors due to covid19 concerns, I’ve really been thankful for my decision.Yeah, I’ve avoided my gym in Tuscaloosa despite them still being open and cleaning more than they were.

On that note, it’s also refreshing to go for a run outside. Weather has been awesome. And I can ensure a much larger spacing between me and the next person.

One source said Trump began talking privately late last week about reopening the country after the 15-day shutdown because he is worried about the economic damage from shuttering the economy.
Trump believes "we are strong and need a strong economy as we deal with this crisis," the source said.
Matt Schlapp, a Trump ally and chairman of the American Conservative Union, backed Trump. "I think it is soon becoming time to have old and/or sick people take every precaution and healthy people go back to work forever changed w(ith) new habits in a grimmer reality," Schlapp said in a tweet.
Former Republican Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, who was frequently at odds with Trump, backed Trump. "I agree 100%, @realDonaldTrump," Corker tweeted.
We are going to reach a point where we'll do more harm to the American people by destroying the economy than letting 2-4 million people die from the virus would have.Surely this isn't true....

We can’t let this get to Great Depression level economic impact otherwise, as fractured as this country is, I think this might do us in.We are going to reach a point where we'll do more harm to the American people by destroying the economy than letting 2-4 million people die from the virus would have.
I don't know where that point lies, and I'm not saying I necessarily disagree with anything that's been done nor do I necessarily agree with Trump's reasoning. I'm just worried all the mitigation eventually might end up doing more harm than letting the virus burn through the country in a few months would have.
*Don't want to sound cold-hearted, that's not my intention. I absolutely am worried about family members, and am doing my part in staying in the house as much as I can. There's just no easy way out of this, and at some point the economic impact has to be weighed against the virus impact.
I agree with the sentiment but I'm not convinced those are the two choices we face (lockdown that decimates the economy versus companies getting back to normal while the virus burns through). It is so tough to filter through the various options in the "fog of war" of a situation like this, but I do think there's more than two potential outcomes or options.We can’t let this get to Great Depression level economic impact otherwise, as fractured as this country is, I think this might do us in.
