When someone says they think they have the virus, therefore they are self quarantining, what does that mean if they live in Israel, NY, NJ, or California- where EVERYONE is self quarantining?

I have the same question. I’m home. This is it now. I don’t understand this counting days in quarantine. This is it sisters.

The only thing I can think is if it means that when your not officially quarantined you can go pick up groceries and medical supplies.

In ca we can go out for essential needs. If someone is in self quarantine they can not go out at all.

If a family is officially quarantined, how do they get groceries and medical supplies? (No deliveries available anymore in my area.)

In NY, an asymptomatic person who hasn’t tested positive or have known exposure can go to the grocery store, the laundry room, take a walk, go to the bank, etc. a person in quarantine can’t.

We're in NY and in self-quarantine and we won't go ANYWHERE that a human might be at. Im hoping that if I do this for 2 more weeks (its been almost a week now) we can go to my (young) parents for Pesach. Also we had the virus but no more sypmtoms by now...

In israel we are allowed to go out for essentials. Also where I live there are many non essential stores still open.

Wow! I guess I'm in my own world! Everyone I know is working from home or not at work. Grocery visits are strongly discouraged by every news article, doctor etc.
The streets are deserted despite the relatively nice weather. Families are really keeping separate.

Bank- we've been able to do everything remotely, or through the drive through.

The streets in my area of NYC are empty. Of course the health care workers and other essential workers are out but everyone else is mostly home.

I saw a private business that runs errands in Monsey, posted today. Maybe people should get the word out that they will pay an errand runner or see if car services who need business would shop or pick up prescriptions.
In some places there is Whole Foods delivery via Amazon or there is Instacart. Some places won't deliver but have curb service.

Not everyone can work from home or afford to quit their job.

I think it might just be different in NYC and Lakewood. I am going to lose close to 10,000 this month by not working but I dont have a choice in the matter. Cuomo ordered all non-essential workers home and my job was lost for now Sad. My husband learns so at least he can continue his (non-paying) job. (And no we don't have savings and can't afford this).

In Israel, it would mean:

- they do not leave the house at all, as opposed to people who weren't exposed and can still go to the grocery store, pharmacy, for short walks, or a few other things.

- they don't go to work even if they are essential workers (eg the 20 staffers at the local hospital who currently can't work because some idiot lied about having been exposed to corona Rolling Eyes )

- even within their house, they separate from other family members as much as possible. staying in a separate room, preferably using their own separate bathroom, keeping a 2-meter distance, etc.

We think we have the virus so we have not gone beyond our driveway in a week. Groceries are getting delivered to our doorstep. We stay inside all day except a brief outing to our private driveway to play for a few minutes

Not sure if this helps, but we had decided to self quarantine, which meant staying home, but going out for essentials, groceries and the bank and any other crucial items. Now that we have come into contact with people who have it, we no longer are leaving the house for anything.

We just paid someone to do all our pesach shopping. We are all self quarantining in my house. No grocery shopping...either I will ask a neighbor to pick up some stuff or I have a delivery slot booked on friday. I think I have enough in the house till then. We are going out for walks though.
