  1. So anybody who was going to travel during the time for emergencies or health reasons, would not qualify as an essential service and may now be stuck? I could see limited allowance based on notes and accommodations made, but full cancelations can hurt those that need the services. Besides, I thought it was just a drill, as it isn’t really a logical step to promote social distancing (those infected can pass it around the very next day).
