    The City of Dallas just shut down pretty much everything.

    No groups of people over 50 to assemble. Does this include workplaces? Grocery stores? Hospitals? How about Dallas Love Field?

    50 people is 50 people. You're either serious or you're just pretending you are.

    Also why the number 50? Why not 10? Why not 100? Why is the magic number 50?

    Restaurants can only provide takeout, drive through, or delivery service. No more dining in. A sick worker can still infect you through the three excepted methods. They closed bars, why not shut down restaurants too?

    What's the difference between 50 people in a theater watching a movie and 50 people working in their office? Why is one closed and the other not?

    So far, everything announced to slow down the spread is nothing more than mental masturbation.

    If you really want to stop it then shut down EVERYTHING. If you did that for two weeks the virus would burn out. Instead we have these half-assed, feel good measures that aren't going to do a thing.

    I don't want to be around 50 people anyway.

    Can we petition them to make the group size 10 or less?

    "Social Distancing Measures" is the new phrase now that I have started to see being used online. It makes it kind of sound all intelligent and official like. My apartment complex just used this phrase to justify closing down our leasing office until further notice. Does that mean that I no longer need to pay rent?
