    When will the president, mayors governors end their guidelines to self-quarantine?

    That is, when will the country, once again, begin to gather socially in restaurants, bars, churches, stadiums, and theatres.

    Need to enter the date you think, if you think it will be into next year, then enter the exact date,

    If the POTUS stops the SQ but the mayors or governors still have SQ orders in their city or state, then the contest is not decided.

    This is not to be a partisan political thread, but just a discussion on when you think we will be free to gather and mingle again.

    The prize will be at least a 90 day VIP membership. If you are already a member, then you will get at least 90 days free.

    The length of the prize will depend on the participation of the contest. You can guess once a week, but in case of a tie, the earliest guess will win.

    May 1, but I'm not sure how this date is definitively established. The states are putting forth their own mandates and those will be lifted at different times.

    This will allow necessary stores 5 days to get organized and open, for the huge amount of vendors to be able to gather staff, shop and prepare for the "sort of official" kickoff of Summer up and down both coasts. (not just both coasts of Florida) :).....

    If the "Shore" up north, especially in the NY/NJ areas are not open by then, it will set off a 'cabn fever' syndrome Aerica has never seen......

    From Key West, all the way up to Bar Harbor...and from San Diego to Seattle.....it's a massive economy of it's own.

    TBD. Thank goodness for the intrawebs, You Tube, spring, and my collection of movies. There's just one thing missing.

    There is no one answer. Each state will decide for themselves. The states that instituted shelter in place earliest may end up being the first to reopen. Washington state is ahead of everyone right now.

    If the contest isn't closed and we don't get too "Too Hot", I will say the unofficial "official" stop of self quarantining - meaning we will be on probation and not VJ Day - I will pick June 1.

    For myself, never, unless some lovely young lady convinces me otherwise.
