I can’t tell you how best to go static—only you can. But DO IT NOW. Performance isn’t just something to aspire to any more. This is not time for “well, this is as performant as our stack gets”. Right now, performance could literally be life-saving to a user. GET STATIC.
Too many sites are crashing as their CMSes buckle under the load of too many visitors seeking critical information. Too many sites’ frameworks are draining mobile batteries or shutting out older browsers as people seek critical information.

I think this is one of the most misunderstood aspects of the shelter-in-place rule :-)
There is no reason to freak out, but we do need to take the shelter-in-place order seriously. If you don't need to, don't leave the house, unless you're going on a hike or a run. Being outside to get some fresh air is totally fine!
I know the #Covid_19 news is overwhelming for many in our community, so I wanted to explain @GavinNewsom@twitter.com's statewide shelter-in-place order. The summary: it's not as scary as it sounds. Read this thread to learn more.
