    Oakland is closing 74 miles of city streets to make more room for physical distancing

    [...]

    Mayor Libby Schaaf gave a preview of the new initiative, dubbed Oakland Slow Streets, in a virtual town hall Thursday night.

    Parks are too crowded to maintain proper physical distancing, Chief Resilience Officer Alexandra McBride noted, so the city's creative solution is to take advantage of the 20% to 30% of land dedicated to roads.

    City streets will close roads to vehicular traffic mostly in and around residential neighborhoods. The official rollout of this emergency and details are expected to be released later today.

    While I understand completely these nurses' frustrations, how does a sit-in and refusing to work help? This will just allow more patients to die. Detroit, like NYC, has just been unprepared to deal with the rapid influx of patients in dire straits. However, I do NOT think this is the way to respond :(

    Now that's interesting that seniors have a huge exemption on property taxes if they live on their own property, permanently. I like that.

    And let me just add........I LOVE ALASKA!!! Mush!!

    Question; Where does a person locate the medical info that says their Blood type? I have suggested asking the PCP, if a person has been previously admitted.
    Otherwise....I don't know.

    Back in the 90's I was given a five pound block of government cheese. It was so good. I have often wished I could get my hands on some more!

    WATCH: Covid-19 measures to remain in place until 5 May

    (Ireland)

    The Taoiseach has announced that the Covid-19 restrictions will be extened for a further three weeks until Tuesday 5 May.

    Leo Varadkar made the announcement this afternoon following a meeting of the National Public Health Emergency team today.

    He thanked the Irish people for their forbearance and sacrifice, in the effort to stop the spread of Covid-19.

    Mr Varadkar said that because the vast majority of people have heeded the advice, the spread of the virus has been disrupted.

    He said the spread has been slowed but it has not been stopped, adding that too many people had died and that "many more will die and many more will get sick before this is over".

    The Taoiseach said "people are wondering when live will get back to normal. We are working toward that, planning carefully, so we get there safely. No one knows for certain when that will be, or how are lives will be different. All we can do is take one day at a time".

    He asked people to choose solidarity over self interest.

    For me, I would worry that my son would contract the virus from someone at school. We have been isolating at home to protect my mom, and I have no idea if the families of classmates are adhering to protocols.

    It was a government commodities program. We used to get cheese, peanut butter, cornmeal, butter, sometimes flour, powdered milk.

    Probably something that should be looked at to start up again. I know a lot of families who are really in a bind. Especially people who are undocumented. They were doing fine working unskilled jobs, but those jobs are mostly gone. They won't be eligible for any unemployment, food stamps, EBT, or even that mythical money we are supposed to get.

    That portion of our community is going to be hit particularly hard.

    I had a nightmare that I was in the show Birdbox. In my version it was Covid we were hiding from.

    My husband had a nightmare that he caught Covid and was telling everyone goodbye.
