The only way I would support a shutdown is if the person ordering it gives up their paycheck for the duration of the closure. If the Mayor keeps getting paid then let's provide the information and let people choose whether they want to risk getting it or not. Simplest solution in the world is to stay home if you don't want it. But interestingly enough, the people I know staying home to avoid it are getting it more than the people I know that aren't staying home. Interesting.
I don't belittle the issue for certain folks but I want to see people given the freedom to choose rather than be told and businesses ruined because someone somewhere decided what's "essential" and what isn't....
