Who in those places are you hearing this from?
My sister in law is in the army (nurse), and wife's work friend's husband leads an ambulance.
Ambulance told to "be ready".
I think as details emerge, it will be most likely:
1.) Only allowed to goto grocery / pharma stores in "x" amounts (less than 10...I AM ONLY MAKING THIS PART AS ASSUMPTION)
2.) Essential / Healthcare/ first responders to work (im in medical field for organ transplant).
Also....i can say this from MY personal experience in Pa: be prepared to see a "spike" in positive Corona cases next week. NOT BECAUSE OF NEW CASES, but UPMC and Quest diagnostics have test kits ready now to test more individuals. We will have more data.
My work started temperature scanning us two days ago as we entered building. Anyone with 100+ had to leave / take pto for the day.
