Everything's being shut down, businesses, schools, universities, and yet the cruise ships that generate so many of these cases continue to operate? Why????? The Grand Princess docked in Oakland today with 21 more cases...how do we flatten the curve when we leave the virus generators out there?

No, the cruise ships are not continuing to operate - except for a few ships that the cruise lines have offered to be used like hospital ships in wartime, if needed. Those 21 people on board the Grand Princess are returning from being quarantined and have all been cleared. you can read about it here: https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/cruises/2020/03/16/coronavirus-grand-princess-departs-oakland-lets-off-crew/5058788002/
