There were places that tried to limit sales of specific items in department stores. The whole point of using categories was to avoid having to make value judgements about every single business and then each aspect of those businesses.I didn’t ask a question in my comparison of Target and DL. That was a statement.
I think calling Target a grocery store is a bit disingenuous. There’s a billion supermarkets open. If we re really trying to stop the spread did all the Targets need to be open too? If so, they should shut down the electronics section (and everything except food) and only keep the grocery store section open and Limit the people going in like Traders Joes does. So as we can see, there’s all kinds of gray areas when it comes to “essential” and I think with a little creativity and common sense and we can see how a theme park can operate safely today. I understand it’s more people and more chance for spread but it can be done safely. If anything it’ll be “safer“ then the beach in Malibu I went to on Sunday that was packed with nobody wearing masks.
Electronics were generally considered essential as business supplies.
Target did limit capacity but a larger store is going to have a larger capacity.
The comparisons to Europe are often to the European Union, a collection of countries with a larger population than the United States. More people, more diversity.I’m tired of hearing people hate on America. I keep seeing people compare how these tiny European countries Handled the virus compared to America and it’s just ridiculous. The U.S. is an enormous country with a lot of people and diversity. This is a huge disadvantage when it comes to something like containing a pandemic. With that said, I don’t even know for certain that more could have been done. Can we say for certain that if we quarantined for another few weeks/ months everything would be ok today? I also don’t watch the news much because I don’t like to be depressed so I may be out of the loop or maybe it makes it easier to think for myself. I dunno. Also, I’m probably the wrong person to have this convo with because I question just how dangerous the COVID is to people that are not elderly or with underlying conditions (basically the same people susceptible to all the other diseases/ viruses not just COVID) and what political chess moves might be in play.
There are college football players with heart inflammation. That alone should tell you that your assessment of the severity of the virus is incorrect.
