There's been a noticeable shift in public opinion, at least among a vocal group on social media. 

Never mind the conspiracy theories that have sprung up about the coronavirus, there's plenty of people expressing their resistance to the idea of people staying home and greatly reducing contact among people to avoid spreading the disease.

Dr. Bonnie Henry has been adamant from the start that even once we "flatten the curve" we will be asked to maintain social distancing for months, perhaps as much as 18 months or until a vaccine is approved. That's going to mean an even greater impact on the economy, many individual businesses and jobs and our social lives — no team sports, no live entertainment, no school, no ceremonies, no funerals etc. 

You've likely read enough to understand the full situation and how this virus will affect our health as well as our well-being. So we want to know: Are you still on board with Dr. Henry's plan?
