It’s Not Tyranny

Restrictions and safety measures are not tyrannical, it’s doing what’s best for the community. Keeping a virus from spreading benefits everyone in the long term. Those who are complaining need to chill out and think about their friends and neighbors. Elected officials are charged with keeping the public safe and to make difficult decisions even when it might cause an inconvenience to some.

  1. People are foolish Tony. I got the virus and finally broke having a temperature the last 3 days my temp has been normal. I have no idea how I got the virus. But I live in an apartment where the common areas rarely get cleaned/disinfected. I also work for a job that has a lot of old materials (Newspapers/books some centuries old) and people are either a. always dealing with allergies and b. tend to get sick a lot and work through it, now my job plans to go back into full production on May 1st with a lot in place for social distancing, wearing masks, sanitizing stations and a forehead thermometer we must use when entering to make sure no one is sick, anyone that fails the temp test has to go home for for 3 days if they come back and are still ill they must get tested for covid. I personally don’t work for a life sustaining business, the curve only seems to get worse in Pennsylvania and every time i see people out, no one is wearing a mask. I am actually afraid to leave my apartment and or go back to work next month. I’d personally feel aok with the new normal as soon as a vaccine is in place. I have no intention of doing any socializing until that vaccine is readily available.

      1. This virus is very dangerous, Tony, you are right. My granddaughter and her husband tested positive for covid-19. They are quarantined together now in their apartment in Syracuse, NY. I am very far away in New Mexico, not much I can do except pray. 😦
