I don't think that we should go so far as forcibly locking someone in their house but people should be staying home as much as possible and I think the police should fine these people a hefty fine who are acting like this is no big deal and refusing to stay at home when they're not working. And everybody should be tested - every day to identify those who have the virus but have no symptoms so we can isolate those Typhoid Marys.
Where are we going to get 330 million tests per day?

S. Korea managed to do it. So did China. So it isn't impossible. Trump could wave his hand and command the military to start making them. I'm sure it's a very exact recipe, you just need the ingredients and someone to assemble them.

Well today the police had to break up an ULTA religious wedding of over 100 people here in NY. This is the 3rd one this week. They refused to leave. In NJ they had to get the National Guard to break up the same kind of event. F***ing selfish. Ny is now at 15,000 and tomorrow I bet my county doubles. We were at 80 Thursday and today over 300.

I don't see how we can test everyone. But I do think that non-essential personnel should be required to shelter in place and essential personnel should be tested en masse. The fact that we are asking medical, truckers, factory workers, grocery, pharmacists, first responders, etc. show up for work every day and yet denying them testing unless they are hospitalized is criminal.

Those people should be treated to 24 hours in the county lock up with all the unwashed masses.

No but they manpower. Like, I said, it's probably a concise recipe of ingredients to create the supply. Just like the reagents to test for other stuff. You get the supplies in bulk and then break them down for individual kits.

I don’t think they can. I think it may be Unconstitutional.

Yep! I agree completely. It just astounds me the empty headed, idiotic, selfish imbeciles we share this planet with. The more I'm seeing this crap, the more convinced I am that this is mother nature hitting the reject button on this whole race. Give it back to the animals. I'm really disgusted. I've held out hope for humanity all this time. That hope is fading quickly.

China had people like that refusing to self-isolate and they got locked into their houses with a welded bar and padlock across their door to keep them from going outside.
