Talking points on social distancing: Staying home saves lives


  • It is important that people understand the seriousness of this situation. In just a week’s time, we went from zero positive cases of COVID-19 to more than 100 cases. This is one of the highest per capita rates of COVID-19 cases in the entire country, and it is expected to continue unless we each change our behaviors.
  • Right now, everyone is urged to take aggressive measures to contain this virus. We all have a role to play in protecting not just ourselves but our neighbors, friends and everyone else we interact with.

I know most of you have seen many of the texts and posts that warn of the “government” taking over everything and limiting freedoms.  The “doomsdayers” never explain how these things are to be done or as one says “the military was in a two hour briefing” but never says what it was about.  I have endeavored to research this to give you some info.  NOTE: I am getting about 300 emails per day so if you send me a message and I don’t respond soon please call/text my cell.  Thanks.

Federal, state and local officials have declared a state of emergency, which allows them to wield additional powers in an effort to protect residents and curb the severity of the COVID-19 outbreak.  The result has been varying degrees of life-disrupting events such as quarantines, shuttered businesses and school closures -- which raises a multitude of questions about what the government legally can and cannot do.
