    At the end of the day food delivery, such as pizza, is going to spread it like none other. But hey be dumb. In big cities they real have no choice because of number of mouths to feed. But rural Iowa does. Think of it this way. Gas pumps, keypads, plastic cards. keys, door handles, coffee pots, soda fountains, pizza makers, cash, and final people are all at your local Casey General store. And in some town this is all they have.

    Be bold. Stop the spread. It is real and deadly. Close everything except essential businesses now. (i.e. Grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations, police, firefighters, hospitals). Everything else CLOSE DOWN. Stay home! Money is coming. Unemployment will be easily and widely available soon.
