In general people make decisions based on emotions rather than logic. Most people heading to vacation spots rarely if ever have to use the local medical facilities so most have no idea just now ill equipped they are to handle even one emergency let alone a few hundred or thousand.

Anyone with a logical brain knows that when faced with a possible need for state of the art medical attention you don't drive away from that resource but rather stay as close to it as you can. But again, people are generally illogical and irrational thinkers.

Why do you all think that as soon as you touch someone else or touch something they touch you are all going to die within 7 to 10 days? Come on man ... talk about illogical and irrational thinkers! You're more likely, at this time, to die from driving a car than from Coronavirus!

Ahem. I flew to Maine 3x this season and last season to snowmobile. I'm not offended either. Can't wait for next season starting with flying to Grizzly Lodge, provided this has settled down enough by then.

Calm down folks. Maybe 2 - 3 weeks left in county. Sucks. Let’s call it a season. Get boats, golf courses, atv trails and fishing gear ready to go. Pretty sure We can do those activities while social distancing. All of you be safe!!!!!

Perhaps some of the inconsiderate people are the same ones that can’t obey rules of the trails

Just saying it’s the end of the season and as a construction worker on a major job being called essential I would not go up now as much as I would like to

The list of things that you are more likely to die from is pretty lengthy.

..... which is my point. We're not shutting down the world to avoid those are we? As for the reference to 'oh well, it's only a few more weeks anyway' ... well, what happens when they continue the 'shelter in place' decree during the Summer? What are you going to do next Fall/Winter when the second strain of Covid-19 mutates and starts to affect people (I hope they develop a vaccine by then).

As of today there are 155 cases of Covid-19 in the State of Maine ..... and there are 21, 459 initial claims for unemployment (due to the shutdown).

The fallout from this forced unemployment and forced recession with all the bad things that are going to happen from that (bankruptcy, mental health issues, homelessness, disease from NO HEALTHCARE because you cannot afford insurance or you are no longer covered because you are unemployed, suicide, etc.) will be more harmful than a Flu that has a 99% recovery rate.

No I am not a doctor but I do deal with healthcare facilities in my profession and I'll tell you what ... hospitals can go bankrupt too when they don't have a good Census or cannot perform procedures that gain the hospital $$$. My wife is a nurse and her hospital has basically cleared the building of all non-essential cases and pushed out all procedures that can be moved out. As of yesterday they have NO Covid-19 patients and NO $$$ coming in. So what are they doing? Sending nurses and personnel home WITHOUT PAY *and* to top it off the head of the hospital told 'the girls' to make appropriate plans for the Summer because they will be performing all the pushed out procedures INCLUDING Saturdays to make up for it.
