🖒 that's the only way we are going to get a hold of this thing and get back to some semblance of normalPeople ignoring the distancing and stay at home practices are only prolonging this entire thing for the entire nation.........Go outside, work in the yard, get stuff done, but avoid crowds and avoid groups of people and keep your distance from everyone who isn't in the same household.
Sulley,They must have liked my idea..........
I know Walmart and Sams Club is there. I didn’t know that Target sold food. That is the only Target store I‘ve ever seen -never been in one of course.Coaltrain--where ur saying all that traffic is where lots of redlights are. i know exactly where u mean--have u missed all the grocery stores along that part of the road. wally world, sams club, target, i probably missed a few, then u got TSC along there, was a furniture store there, but i bet its closed. if there's any traffic to be found, its gonna be in that short piece of road.
We just got an "A+" in Minnesota😁. Traffic is down 44% according to some company that figured it out by cell phone location data (scary).People are completely ignoring the “stay at home” order here. Traffic is still less than normal only because there’s no school or tourists. It’s nuts. Everyone is “essential” it seems. Even the local Harley shop sent out an email saying they have a 24 hotline you can call so they can meet your needs. Really? Who needs to call Harley at 2am? What a crock...
My closest John Deere dealer, 10 miles away, is open. I have another one about 15 miles away (owned by same company) and it's open too. Traffic is down, but not much. The soft "lockdown" doesn't go into effect until tomorrow midnight, but I don't anticipate much change. As Sennister mentioned, the governor-declared "essential" services are defined such that about 78% of Minnesota residents work in "essential" services. Sadly, my barber isn't one of them, apparently. That's going to be a problem, and soon. I agree that most Minnesotans will go along, pretty much. There won't be any enforcement.We just got an "A+" in Minnesota😁.

The John Deere dealer is open but sent out emails saying to use the customer portal to order then pickup parts at drop zones located around the county.
I can't speak for the metro area, but I really think the average Minnesotan is taking this pretty seriously. Part of that in my locality is probably the fact that Mayo is fully on board, and trumpeting the message loud and clear.
They are using this lockdown and working around the clock to build up capacity for a surge of ICU patients.
