30 day poll.
You can change your count as situation changes.
Only count those you have met personally unless otherwise indicated.
We're a pretty small sample spread out throughout the country but it may be interesting.
We can discuss local cases to us but counts are only for personally known friends, family or acquantences.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Zero for me. At the level outlined in the OP, I would guess this will apply to at least 70% of the population.

Zero here.

My buddy claims there is a couple being treated in our local hospital.

Haven't seen any news reports about locally infected folks.

So far zero.

But I didn't attend either of the 2 local gun shows being held this weekend. I decided months ago to avoid these shows not because of Chinese Wuhan virus (which was barely on my domestic radar then) but rather because March is still the tail end of regular flu season and I didn't want to rub elbows with someone sneezing and coughing up flu germs.

Woo hoo, I get to vote. At least if my wife counts.

There is one person in Ohio who has tested positive in my wife's home county, who used to go to their church when she was young.

So there.

Looked today, under a hundred cases in Illinois.  Just saw first case announced in the county next to us.  Closest I'm aware of.

I have a friend in Italy (close friend of my sis).

Her and her husband have stayed home for a week. They had contact with a friend who ended up being infected.

Feeling "off" today, and can hear gravel in my voice.  Normally not enough to stay home, but these days, yes I will.

I've got a crapton of vacation/sick time hours, that the bookkeeper keeps bugging me to use.

One of my coworkers has "respiratory symptoms," so the boss asked him to take off for 2 weeks, or until he can be tested.

They also canceled my upcoming trip to Phoenix. You've been spared, Arizona.
