Come to Office Dangerous?

Did your company asked you to work from home?
Do you feel safe taking NYC subway?
Do you feel safe work in a crowed trading floor knowing that virus can be spread without symptoms?
Should US government suspend stock market to avoid public panic and keep traders safe (Assume traders have to come to office to trade)? Maybe they can reopen market after virus is contained?

Who thinks that markets should close doesn't have a clue on how markets/trading work

I mean I think we should work from home , but close the markets? That's insane and not necessary.

Seems besides Bank of America is the only major bank doesn't allow work from home.

While BofA is clearly not requesting that employees who think they may have the virus should come to its offices, insiders are complaining that they want to work from home as a precaution. "Other banks are already allowing home working, but Bank of America has decided to be a pioneer and ask us to go into the office," says one, who claims that requests for home working to managers are being rejected.

True. Close the market. Rather than uncertainty, I think investors would rather reopen market when virus is contained, less panic sell off
