Maine currently requires visitors to have a test or quarantine for 14 days. It is enforced by hotels, BNB, campgrounds etc. NY and NJ and maybe CT have suggested doing the same. I understand it can't be completely enforced but it would help. 

NY, NJ, CT has asked for quarantine on visitors from 16 states including NC.

Our government's got the money to let everyone take the rest of the year off if we needed to but they decided that tens of thousands of American lives weren't worth the cash. 

Our government has the ability to print enough money. It doesn't really have a savings account as far as my understanding goes. If we use GDP as a proxy that would be another $20T for a year. American salary for a year would be around the same. I think that would have massive global economic effects.

20T with zero tax revenue. That’s a very bad situation.

We’d be paying interest on past debt with new debt. Yikes.

Plus alot of businesses that people expect to go back to work at won't survive.

As we said 300 pages ago, it is a tightrope that has to be walked between health and economy.

Concentrating on just one, would devastate the other

health is real.  the economy is not.

"The economy" is people's way to support themselves.  Many will have to pull their kids out of school and move away if they lost their job.  Not cool for you to be so disrespectful towards their reality.

We invented the economy. It's NOT real. We can just as easily modify it.

Health IS real and you only get one life to live.

Not to be a dick, but you do realize that 2/3 to 3/4 of people still work, right? People are working as I type this to keep the electricity on and the internet working.

In early November, we'll just be starting cold/flu season.

The reality is that Trump bet his presidency on COVID running it's course quickly and a resulting quick V-shaped economic recovery despite every virologists and epidemiologist on the planet saying that was the least likely scenario. He bet big and he lost big.

He wasn't briefed

After seeing the redneck families and groups going out to eat with zero regard for the current mask requirements I am done eating out. My optimism of a few weeks ago has been destroyed.  If only the politics of stupidity only affected the individual. They get what they deserve but the people putting in honest work and effort don't deserve the destructive outcomes.

Yeah the ol mask around the neck was a popular look among the staff at the grocery store in Hickory when I was there last weekend.  Like why even bother.

US government just borrows from American people.  The foreign debt remains the same.
