Will UA hub airports be shutdown by the governor's order?

Just as the SFO order did, public transport workers are exempt.

The ground movement problem due to exposed traffic controllers at LAS is causing a lot of problems, Have had 3 departures for Houston cancelled in last 12 hours. Hoping my current LAS-LAX-IAH flights hold steady. 6 of 7 LAS-IAH non-stops cancelled tomorrow and remaining one gets me in too late.

Is Greyhound still around?

Businesses exempted from closure order include:

“...Airlines, taxis, and other private transportation providers providing transportation services necessary for activities of daily living and other purposes expressly authorized in this Order;”

My first reaction was: What? Air China (CA) has just ceased operations?

So airlines are open... but are Californians allowed to travel to States that don't have shelter-in-place lockdowns for leisure travel?

Yes, I flew out today SFO-DEN-IAD. It is not draconian quarantine yet. But if Coronavirus cases in CA really get bad (worst case scenario) then maybe forced quarantine orders, including stopping mass transit systems and checkpoints.

Just my opinion we are at a point this is worse then 9-11. No one should be flying except to get home. They are shutting down everything except supermarkets and drug stores.

And it's global this time, so it's not like you could just go to a neutral country and enjoy a vacation.

We have survived multiple financial setbacks, each of course is unique in its own way. We landed people on the moon, we survived world wars, something tells me I more proud than ever to live in the USA.

We will get through this as well, keep the faith.

As I understand, no. But no one is really checking.
