I agree that during times like these people shouldn't be allowed to go on cruises, travel for pleasure and go on vacations etc and it's a good thing that governments have banned all forms of non-essential travel... but people shouldn't be prevented from going to work, running their small business or going outdoors solo to get some exercise.
