It matters to people who live and work in Wyoming .

and to all those other places “no one lives”. And why is it difficult to shut down the places needing shut down and leave everywhere else open? Why shut down a business and lay people off in Wy to use your example because people in SF and NY may need to? There are millions of people and small businesses that can safely work and operate who don’t need to be closed yet or maybe at all. This isn’t a one size fits all deal.
According to pretty much all experts, this approach isn’t going to stop people from getting the virus, just delay when they get it as to not overwhelm the medical system. So tell me why close the entire country or state for months or even as long as a year and have 20-30% unemployment and a completely ruined economy for the 98-99% of the people who have to continue living and eating and paying rent or mortgages, car payments, saving for college, etc
