You probably realize that this is a "So why don't they eat cake, then?" type of response, You may have a second home within driving distance, that you can freely make use of. Lots of people have no such alternative.

If a pandemic is truly global (or at least nationwide), it makes no sense to invite yourself to a friend or relative. That could be the case even for natural disasters as well: Your friends and relatives may be as hard hit as you are. And the roads may be hit.

Lots of people do not have the opportunity to just go away for a period. Their work may not permit it. Maybe they have livestock, or maybe they do dogsledding as a hobby and have eight huskies to take care of.

Maybe authorities will restrict your freedom of movement as well. During Easter, a great share of the Norwegian population go up in the mountains, to their mountain cabins, to hotels, or the visit the large number of self-service cabins. Many of the small mountain villages increase their population by a factor of 5 to 6 during easter. The health services are dimensioned for the year-round needs. If 25,000 citypeople gather in a 5000 people village for exchange of corona viruse, it could lead to a major catastrophe. So, cabin owners were not allowed to spend Easter at their cabin as they always did before. That caused a major uproar among the cabin people!
