The Great American Anti-Social Quarantine: Downtown is Closed Until Further Notice


The governor's quarantine hit downtown in late March. Like most places, people went home, except for a few panhandlers. You could still buy a slice of pizza, or a beverage for a hot day, but you had to take it outside. Most retail stores were closed. A few were open to receive packages from UPS or FedEx, but were closed to customers. Construction on the new nine story CODE building continued. How much will it cost to reopen the city? Will all the people come back? Will all the stores come back? How much will people go into debt to the government to pretend things are normal?
