For all practical purposes, you're saying keep things just as they are.

Food stores, for example, with regulated entry, have been the normal state of affairs for weeks. People have to eat. Mail is delivered; garbage picked up; stores that sell things that are "essentially essential" to being able to stay home are open.

Testing-at-large:   I don't give it as much credit as many others. After all, many are walking around with this virus with essentially no symptoms - but spreading it none-the-less. So long as there's no reasonable herd-immunity to prevent most mechanisms of transmission then we all really have to consider the following:

"We are waiting around until we, ourselves, get the virus".

The longer you wait the better, not only to reduce stress on resources and thereby receive better care, but hopefully make it to the point where the lethal outcomes are treatable before they are lethal. If vaccine(s) are are released, are you willing to roll up your sleeve and be an earlier accept trial? If so, which one?
