I don't think that my state has opened up yet, but it would indeed change my daily habits since I will be able to go places that I am not able to now because they are closed, haha.

Will my habits change from what I'm doing now?

I would think they must. The return to the grown-up activity of making money is necessary.

But I must confess, I am delighting in getting some tools out and making a 'garage' for my cutters, boards and media. All made from re-purposed 40 year old fence wood.  Poly natural wood top and blue enamel on the frame.

It should go well with the stool recently made pictured here.

The top is re-purposed fence wood and the frame is home depot pine 2x4.

The irresponsibility of the fully open states will lead to more lives lost and a more severe overall hit to the economy of those states.

Fortunately we are still closed to all but the essential businesses.

No.  Gov. Newsom will keep the state closed until after the November election if he could.  It's all about politics and power for him now.  That and spending 1 Billion Dollars on CHINESE made masks from china!  Yeah, the same people who sold us and europe faulty test kits, broken ventillators, who laughed about making themometers that never went high enough to indicate an infection for the purpose of getting more Americans sick and they even cough on masks for the same purpose.  Total disgrace, him and Pelosi.

Illinois, with its own set of circumstances, will remain shelter in place until the end of May.

Georgia seems to be the test goat here. It should be closley monitiored. I favor a staged opening myself. Still struggling with a restaurant solution!

Our Governor for CO initially said last Monday, we will have "safer at home", rather than STAY at home starting Monday, and real estate could begin again.  Today we are hearing, that may not be the case, and extended another 2 weeks.

Good hygiene habits started when I was just a wee one Peter and still remain. Utah was never completely shut down. Our county (over 135,000 population) has had one death and he also had underlying health issues.

Right now, it appears to be hitting Baby Boomers across the country especially hard because of other health problems especially respiratory issues. In Italy, the average age of people dying from the Wuhan flu is 81 years old and plus.

Numbers are being skewed...example...woman's husband died of a heart attack, they tacked on Wuhan flu as the cause...he did not have it and they refuse to take it off!

Back in late December/early January, I believe my husband and I had it. We had the symptoms and my chest area hurt so had an xray taken. While the flu is very serious, taking pre-cautions help to prevent the spread.

Hawaii is looking at slowly opening hopefully next month. Most of the deaths have occurred from being over weight, diabetes, heart disease, and other health issues.

No, of course not. But I could see in a month or two parts up upstate NY where very few people live they may try opening up there first in gradual capacity.  It really won't impact me too much but eventually, it will be easier to order groceries.

Real Estate is closed in Pennsylvania I could bore you with the rules although there are still agents that are out there bending the rules to suit themselves. It closed 3/18  2020   - we cannot show Real Estate occupied or unoccupied- we cannot take pictures or hire anyone to take pictures or allow the seller or anyone else to show the property -   Yet there are properties being sold --- Go figure --  Hoping RE  will open up sometime in May ---  don't mind if there are restrictions but the laws are clear

NJ is not opening any time soon, but I imagine life as we knew it is over. 

This shouldn't be a political issue. I won't engage in debate about what should or shouldn't be done. Every person gets one vote, and I'm sure the vast majority of Americans know who they're voting for in November. No one is changing their mind because someone has created a clever meme or talking point.

Not just yet, but May 1 is the planned date for most things as I'm watching this all develop.  

And no, I've found that starting with virtual clients is not only easier than I thought, it's really convenient and I know a lot better who I'm working with prior to that first showing.  Clients can no longer DEMAND that I meet them at the house and they'd rather not.  SO, I intend to keep working this way for conitnued saftey.

No, not opening in CA or in San Diego yet. But we have a new public health order in place today requiring masks. They are also considering opening the beaches with approval by individual cities and with certain restrictions in place.

My state has allowed most businesses/etc to open back up in the next few weeks with specific rules regarding capacity, distances, etc in place. At the moment, schools, restaurants, bars, places of worship, etc are considering the rules and deciding whether or not to reopen. Several have said "no". It'll be interesting to see what decisions are made in the next week.

As for what might change w/new habits... I'm going to continue to only go grocery shopping/other stores once a week or less. I'm not going anywhere with lots of people if I don't have to go.

California is scheduled to open on May 15th but I doubt it will happen.  The death toll continues to rise as do new covid-19 cases.  It won't change my patterns or habits once we get over this crisis.  I enjoy shaking hands and hugging to much.  It will take a while though.

Georgia is about to open with rules in place and they seem reasonable to me. Poverty will certainly kill more people if the economy fails.
