That is what the premier of our province implored us to do last week, as he got increasingly frustrated with people who are looking for loopholes in the social distancing requirements.

It's such a Nova Scotia sort of phrase, and it's totally gone viral and become the catchphrase of the crisis here. It sparked memes, signs (I've seen several on windows and business signs) t- shirts and other merchandise and several songs. The band The Stanfields just released this one today.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XK6UnPoQhhA

"Stevie boy" would be the premier, Stephen MacNeil and Dr. Strang is our chief medical officer of health.

I thought you might enjoy a laugh and a important message delivered Nova Scotia style.

I do like it and I wish more people in the U.S. would believe staying home is a necessity. Iím astounded people are dying, dying, yet some posters childishly and self-centeredly opine that the rules shouldnít apply to them. This isnít about opinions and feelings, itís about scientific facts. People are dying. Stay the blazes home!

Thanks for sharing. I too wish more people would listen. A group of people including two state representatives and the sheriff of the county I taught in Idaho have said the stay at home issued by their governor is against the state constitution and people should defy it and go about doing what they normally do. (Thankfully the people of my state, Washington, are mostly doing what our governor asked.)

Thanks for the explanation of who they referenced in the video. I wish everyone would stay the blazes home.

This means no more walks. Stay in your home.

Every day when our governor addresses us, he says “stay home” a dozen times, at least. However, people don’t seem to understand what that means. He has at least one “what if” question each time. Nope. Stay home.

Are you . . .
  • working because you are an essential employee?
  • getting supplies such as food or medicine?
  • caring for a loved one?
  • spending time outside your home on your own property with people who live in your house?

He points out that it does NOT mean that you . . .
  • have a small get together with one other couple.
  • have a play date for your child, but keep the kids outside.
  • host a small party, but stay 6 feet apart.
  • go to the grocery just to get out of the house.
  • exercise in a group.
  • let your children visit boyfriend/girlfriends.

He has also had to remind people to . . .
  • stop having in-person church services.
  • not have yard sales.
  • not hang out socializing at the grocery.
  • not send your kids to stay with grandparents, friends, or other family members even if everyone has been quarantined.

My own church stopped having in-person services, but is encouraging people to come pick up communion packs every Friday and drop off offerings. Nope. Not doing it.

Tomorrow night we have a grocery pickup scheduled, and part of those get dropped off to my mom. At this point, I don’t even want to go do that, but nobody delivers here. The only pickup is in the next county, and I had to schedule it Friday to get it tomorrow night. Mom has not been out of her house in well over a month. Her doctor called in her medicine refills. I take her groceries. I don’t even stay and hang out when I do that unless she has things I need to do for her. Her BF hinted at coming over. She told him absolutely not. She may have even told him he was crazy. He’s still going to work, and he’s even been going to supper and visits with his mom, sister, BIL, and brother.

Sorry. I got on my soapbox there for a minute.

Stay the blazes home because you don't want to be speaking moistly on each other . Americans, google "Trudeau moistly" .

I worry about the future of some states. Apparently some people were absent the day the Science teacher taught about germ spread. How stupid can you be not to understand this basic concept? Or is it just acting self centered to ignore the basic facts?

We are still allowed to walk out of doors here but are not supposed to be doing it in groups.

Our staff was trying to figure out how to return student materials to students - some so they could use their consumable materials in lessons. After spending about 40 minutes someone said that it wasn't essential, so why do it? Why didn't they say that at the beginning of the conversation? We all agreed.

I am to the point where I think some folks just don't want to "get it." DH went out on a necessary trip to the pharmacy the other day. He was waiting in line at the register with the required 6 ft gap. Another lady approached and stood in the line withIN his gap space right behind the customer at the cashier. He wanted to extend grace so instead of confronting her, he let her be and then backed up to make a new 6ft space.

Not a minute later, another young woman tried to move into that space with a full cart. DH finally spoke up and "reminded" them that he was in line with the appropriate social distancing... grrr.
