The United States and the entire world are experiencing something unprecedented. Day by day...more and more places are closing down. We haven't seen anything like this in our lifetime.

Sporting and concert venues, schools, bars/restaurants, ... and there is talk of hotels, ... and airports. Even big tourist destinations like the Mall of America, Disneyland and Las Vegas casinos have shut down for crying out loud.

So I make this plea. PLEASE STOP TRAVELING!

I still hear about people planning on taking a flight somewhere. And I'm not talking about 'going home' flights. These are 'vacation' flights. Why in the world would you want to be anywhere near an airport, let alone be so far away from your home base at a time like this? This applies to long drives as well. If you are not going home, don't go.

Even if you still think this is being blown out of proportion -- which I know some people do --just chill for a few weeks. None us like this. But the sooner we stop moving around, the sooner this virus will slow down, and the sooner we can get back to some form of a normal life.

It also means that it will buy time for health experts to find a treatment for COVID-19 which will benefit us for when, as health officials say, this virus comes back later this year.
