Returning to the lockdown issue, is painting and decorating a house an essential service? The house next door to me had a minor fire before Christmas, no one one hurt. Just one elderly man lived there and I believe is now staying with his son.

Nothing happened with the house for months, apart from a clearing out of furniture. Now there's a crew of men working on it. I was surprised to find this happening right now, with the Covid 19 restrictions. Naturally, I haven't spoken to them, but wonder whether they should be doing it.
They should not be working on the house. The man who lives there has a residence to stay during the lockdown. Yes you should call the police about this. They should ne be risking you by working on the house. It's not necessary.

I am sorry for the loss of Cydric.

I do understand their precautions. If any one of them gets ill, the practice may have to close and nobody's pet gets treated by them.

I just love distinctions with no meaning.

Isn't it obvious. The internet needs cords to supply power to the hardware, but the information is transferred using cables and wirelessly.

Isn't the reason for 'Shelter in Place' (We don't have a LOCK DOWN here) maintaining distance from others?
How is 1 person PAINTING an empty house a problem?

I did notice there are a number of construction sites around here with 1 person working in an area away from other work.
Where are these folk, many work minimum wage jobs, going to get money to buy FOOD if they don't work? Not everyone has CREDIT. Unfortunately, they also have little saved.

And while the President stopped foreclosures, did they think to prevent late fees? No. Most folk around here will never be able to dig themselves out if this goes on for a few months. Late fees, accrued interest leave nothing for food or utilities in the future months.

1/3 of my retirement has gone Poof. If I am lucky, I will not outlast it.

In my area this would be allowed. Some kinds of business are still open if they can provide appropriate distancing for their workers and clients. Of course I have no idea what the rules are in Bookcat's area.

Fulton County (one of the Counties that Atlanta, Georgia is in) has ordered a mandatory stay at home with the threat of fine or arrest. The exceptions are essential services (not defined), going to and from getting certain supplies, walking as long as you stay more than 6 feet away from anyone else. Homeless are excluded from the order. It doesn't effect me, since I'm retired and pretty much do that anyway. Can't say that I'm happy about it though.

Is it your position that the current covid-19 infection and death rates in Georgia are not exponential and that keeping people separate will not mitigate that?

Or that young healthy people are not at risk of death if they get infected?

It's defined, they just put it in a separate document as an addendum to the initial declaration. http://fultoncountyboh.org/boh/media...-emergency.pdf

You pick apart someone who says they don't watch TV, they watch Netflix, but then you criticize when someone else who does the same with cord cutting?

I always liked that one, because now I get to quibble over whether the required (by me) consistency is foolish or not.

Small contractors seem to be a gray area. We have plumbers doing some work while we're closed and no one else is in the space.

I took a stroll around a nearby cemetery (nicest park in easy walking distance), and they had at least six or eight groundskeepers going just that I saw. Obviously some work in a cemetery has to carry on, but some of the hedges could probably go without trimming.

My position is that I'm not going to be drawn into debates or worry about justifying my feelings to anyone in this thread. In other threads, I will be happy to discuss my philosophy on governance.
