yep, you're on point. In in that tourist area too. The county has already put out a statement that they can't do anything about people coming in for tourism, but they also issued a statement telling people not to come, and if the come to bring groceries and supplies for 2 weeks and NOT go shopping.Northern Wisconsin is a huge tourist area. There are a lot of people who have second homes up there. All the counties up there are on TV asking people with vacation homes to stay away! "Stay home - stay safe!"
I passed 2 vehicles with IOWA licence plates and 3 trucks towing fishing boats that were headed south on the highway this morning. Want to bet where they were coming from? Makes me mad.
My Aunt was in the store getting a few essentials (milk for one) and the couple in front of her at the check-out had a full cart of stuff. They happily told the checker that they were going to stay at to their cottage for the next month and self-isolate. Self-isolate, right ... what was the first thing they did? They went to the store and exposed everyone in town to anything that they have!!
The big problem is that those areas don't have much for health care facilities. They also have a higher percentage of retiree's than normal. My parents have to drive 45 minutes to get to their doctor for appointments. And that is considered a short drive. The hospital in my town has 18 beds - and we are happy to have a hospital at all.

Nuts, raisins, leftovers, and bread were packed into loaves that served as supper for families who needed to pinch pennies. "I'm moving on to creative cooking since my fridge is looking bare. Today I'm using up frozen corn to make creamed corn casserole. We don't like creamed corn... But I have frozen vegetables [that we don't like] so I might as well start cooking with them. Better than going grocery shopping. Might be able to sweet-talk DH into getting groceries, IDK.
