What is happening in NY (Catskills), PA(Pcoconos) and here in NH (Lakes Region and White Mountains) is the people with second homes are coming up from the urban. very densely populated areas and they also are shopping in the stores which are already stressed for supplies. Again another way to spread the virus across state lines.

I guess also the same in Florida and other states as well.

Too much movement! It's such a mess between states and cities. In other countries, except Brazil, the leaders have been clear that lockdown and quarantine are the priority, not full churches and resurgent economy at Easter. Things can only get worse as a result in USA.

Yes, many people here have second home/cabin Upstate NY or a house at the Jersey Shore. Gov. Murphy told NYers if you own a house at the shore, please do not come.

Do people do what was asked?

My sister works for the public school - Upstate - they prepare meals for the families to pick up. I asked her, how does it work? How do you know who needs it, how many? She said, no questions asked. You don't know. They need to go by the honor system......... I hope people do not take advantage during these difficult times but again, not everyone is a 100% rule follower.

The Federal Govt is providing the funding for school meals. Our principal explained this is for all families who have children ages 2-18. It’s not coming out of their budget which is important in many of our parents eyes.(my area is considered mid to upper middle class, we pay for resources that other districts give freely or is deemed non essential, Art/music.). Children must be present. I try to take my crew of 5 at least 3x week depending on my work schedule. I am thankful for the lunches.

I am very grateful too for the services provided - very important they are fed.

I also hope and pray there are no children in homes that are emotionally or physically abusive :(. So much to think about.

So, in the above scenerio, you feel Tiny Town, population 500 people, no cases of COVID-19, should have to SIP just in case a Big City dweller comes into their town?
Yes, absolutely. I can't believe how many, seemingly educated, people just don't get it. :wall:

Kurt, this is an example of what I will refer to as 'unnecessary name-calling" towards a person who does not share your opinion. The insertion of the words "seemingly uneducated" does not add any value to your statement.

...Until our dear SC applies a balancing test to the "right of the people to peaceably assemble" and adds, "except when outweighed by an imminent existential threat."

Thank God. Perhaps time for USA to evaluate why constitutional protections of other countries seem to work so much better?

We have been through several hurricanes while living on the Texas Gulf Coast near Houston. There is a corona virus testing center now present across the street by a high school football stadium. We have had no interruptions in our electricity, water supply, or trash collection. There has been no flooding, destruction of property, or evacuation. Look at all our blessings.

Absolutely amazes me how many pure idiots can get elected!
I like how generic your statement is, so to avoid politics.
The Answer:
It's becuz we like electing peep who look like us and can
walk and chew gum at the same time. IOW, our betters.

Show me your papers! Blatantly unconstitutional.
Are they violating a law which justifies a stop?
But who wants to be the test case?

You might want to re-read that. He said “seemingly educated”.

Texas needs to put up a police road block on I40 to stop the virus invasion
Sorry. As noble their intent may be...
They can't stop someone based on their address.
At least not until the Supremes rewrite the Constitution.

However, they could always just tear up the road.

Just like mayor Daley did with Meigs Field stranding planes at the airport.

Dr. Fauci says 100,000 to 200,000 Americans will die from this. It doesn't sound like a patriotic 'boost the economy' thing to me. Any volunteers?
