    Is it within the Presidentís power to impose one? Or just interstate travel/international travel?

    Every governor should shutdown their state. The sooner we do this the sooner we will all get released.

    If by nationwide lock down your thinking of an across the board stay at home and social distancing restrictions or recommendations, I think it should be a decision at the state level. My state is basically on lock down but we have several counties in rural and low population areas that have no or only one positive cases reported (so far). I think at some point soon those areas should be able to open up certain low traffic or low contact businesses that are now under the stay at home rules. I could see limiting certain interstate travel around hot spots.

    At some point when all the restrictions are lifted, there's no guarantee the problem is going to disappear completely.

    It's only so effective at a state level as state government can't entirely control the border to the state, so you can't prevent people from states that don't do lock down from traveling in.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Sweden is taking a novel approach, somewhere between no change at all and draconian lockdown. It will be interesting to see how it works out for them.

    What do you mean by "national lockdown"?

    A good part of the country is already under stay-at-home orders.

    Orders from the feds, not the state governors.

    Most of the world is under lockdown at this time.
