Probably gonna start playing Catan with the 3 year old. She won't get it and will bail but I'll win so whatever.

That's an impressive level of absurdity. "Sorry, you're out of sick leave, bring the infectious disease to work. No exceptions!"
That's the thing with flattening the curve. Everyone still has to get sick. Everyone. We just want to make it so the severe and critical cases don't overwhelm medical facilities AT ONE TIME. The only way we could forgo everyone eventually getting it is if we develop a universal corona vaccine that somehow hits all the mutations. Best case scenario that is 12 months away, which gives this strain a chance to mutate. Actual eradication was only possible last December/January, but the Chinese didn't accomplish that. For "social distancing" to work properly we still get a lower 1% death rate, but we drag it out for six months instead of one. It is stupid that companies don't have any plans cognizant of this reality.
