The current level of actions is unsustainable for the long term.

The week after Easter would be a good point of a slow staggered return to normalcy. Unless some data shows the rate of hospitalization and death increase dramatically before then. Not the total number of these but the percentages. The media is treating this like its the Black Plague and 1/3 - 1/2 the population is going to die. Japan has had a much less stringent response and the percentage of population effected is similar to US.
Interestingly 10 years ago we faced the H1N1 virus. ( 60.8 million cases, 274,304 hospitalizations, 12,469 deaths ). As a country we took almost no precautions. No segments of society or commerce we closed. The media had no problem with that response by that administration?
We should be prudent and follow the guidelines laid out and perhaps extend those until April 13th. At that point unless we see a more imminent threat life should slowly return to normal.
