If there were ever an actual lockdown, like happened to some people in Wuhan, it'd drive me crazy being trapped inside for weeks. But people just keep using the word "lockdown" to describe being free to go outside any time of day or night, travel as far as I normally travel, and do the same things I normally do (lots of hikes where there's no people, occasional grocery shopping). I do wish I could do some things with people, but that was only happening a couple times a month pre-pandemic so it's easy shrug off not seeing anyone for a bit.
In fact the health advice is to stay outside -- the opposite of a lockdown.

If they enforced that, then that would be horrifying.
