'Quarantine' in US

Post by abbby » Thu, 02 Apr 2020 5:01 pm

What does it mean by 'quarantine' in the US? Does it mean stay at home without being allowed to go out at all for 14 days? I see a lot of people using this term but they still go out.. :?

Shelter in place, Self Isolate and Quarantine all go up in levels of harshness.

Shelter in place meaning you only go out for essential e.g. grocery shopping.

It is all done voluntarily. Initially, there were still some people out as the gravita had not sinked in yet. We do not point guns at them but keep ramming up the message. Eventually, we all got the message and our downtown is mostly empty now.

In some places e.g. NY, police may stop people who appears to be on non-essential outings. To verify their purpose. Not meant to threaten nor co-erce them.

Shelter in place is not a federal order. As of today, there are 8 states in US who have not imposed it yet.
