My information came from the state of Va. I don’t understand the difference in the numbers.

There have been questions raised about the discrepancies between locally posted numbers vs national or international posted numbers. It seems it is generally felt that locally posted numbers are more accurate.

On their chart it says "cases may not yet be reported". Seems the info published on that chart is out of date.

Well, the President just announced on his daily Coronavirus Stand-up that things are going to be bottled up now, until April 30. My wife just canceled our reservations for the 2nd and 3rd week-end at 2 different Indiana State Parks.

I guess my plans have now changed.

We just got home from a visit to a central CA private campground. On the way home we made reservations to turn around and go back on Wednesday. Now that Trump has extended the current limitations we are looking at traveling to NV for various activities. We still conform to the rules of engagement but owing an rv gives us an opportunity to comply wherever we want.

You may not be able to get through the Canadian border on your way north to Alaska. Our federal government has shut down the crossings to essential travel only, and has now mandated our border agents to turn folks around without a documented exception to the general rule - no need, no entry.

Hopefully this terrible plague will abate before your planned departure, but I strongly recommend you continually check with Canada Border Services on the status of travel into Canada, right up to the time you plan to enter the border area. Also, a reminder to read up on the rules about firearms before departure, so you don't have to smuggle them in, risking jail time and confiscation.

People started hoarding toilet paper before they started hoarding food. Then started in on food of all kinds, including eggs and milk that are perishable and only good for 2-3 weeks. Now they are hoarding flour and paper plates among other things. Canned veggies and dry pasta I can understand. Why flour and paper plates???

And guns and ammo sales have shot way up. People did the same with guns after 9-11. Because they expected an islamic invasion??? Bought them after Obama was elected president. Because they thought there would be a race war??? And now because of the economic downturn due to the COVID-19. Because they think people are going to start breaking in to steal their toiler paper????

Fear does the strangest things to people who are normally otherwise sensible.
