So, it probably doesn't make sense for you to do anything except make sure you have some extra supplies on hand. That's not dgtatum's situation. He's talking about being indifferent to accelerating the local spread of the virus.

I just don't see a reason to change behavior when I already believe and data is confirming that this thing is widespread where I live because I am not going to prevent the spread of anything. A rector in Washington DC came to Louisville and went home with the disease. 2 people in Lexington and 3 in tiny Cynthiana have been tested positive and they aren't linked to any of the known outbreaks and they aren't linked to each other. It's already everywhere in this state if that is the case. Like I said I'm not preventing anything. I will certainly wash my hands like I always do and stay home when I am sick like I always do as well. I will not stop living, I will refinance my mortgage and buy stocks.
