Quiet streets

I'm in a smallish town on Vancouver Island. Restaurants, businesses, dental offices, all closing down. The dentists because they had a big conference with a couple thousand people in Vancouver last week, and now they're starting to test positive, so don't get a tooth ache now.
Can't go to Timmie's anymore. You can drive thru or get take out, but no one is allowed to stay in the restaurant.
They say mail order cannibis sales are spiking, as people settle in for a long isolation period.
At least I can still take the puppies to the dog park as long as we avoid other people.
Oh, gas is down to $1.20 per litre. Dropped about .25 cents so far.
I think we have a long haul ahead of us. Hope I get to spend more time in Zihua soon!

Sobeys is offering early morning shopping for seniors
All Tim Hortons are closing their dinning rooms.
Our City of 72000 is very quiet, no dentists as well.
I agree it may be quite a while before we can return to Mexico
Gasoline is 77 cents here.
One of our thoughts has been if you are to self isolate upon return to Canada.
How do you get home from the airport.
Taxi ? Not really isolation? Drivers interviewed are afraid.
Good luck and health to all.
