I tend to call what all of us are going through a lockdown—or a quarantine—because that is how I understand it.
In truth, neither of those words are right, not for my city at least.
This is because the mayor said that people should only go out for “essential” shopping and business, but then went on to say that basically every single place was essential. Tell me how a bowling alley or a golf course are essential businesses! If no other person is taking this seriously, that makes it all the more pressing for me to look out for myself plus keep myself safe plus healthy. However, just last week I made an online order for a 12 pack of air filters, and I intend on putting them to good use. Normally I buy the cheap air filters, but this time I wanted to spend a little more to get the higher quality. If I am adamant and serious about keeping germs plus viruses at bay I should act like that’s my intent, which in this case meant buying the HEPA rated air filters. These are the top of the line air filters that can remove over 99.9% of harmful particulate from the air, which to me is more than worth the higher price. In the past I would find the cheapest, flimsiest, thinnest air filters I could, plus then just double or triple stack them in the a/c! You can get a half dozen cheap air filters for the price of a single of these nice HEPA filters, but you get what you spend money for. Right now I know I deserve the highest quality air filters I can buy.
