I have to say, that because of the current global pandemic, it is wise to take those precautions that, so far, seem to be successful in keeping our community free from a very dangerous viral infection. Is it inconvenient? Yes. Has it harmed our economy, small businesses and wage earners? Yes. Have we over reacted to the threat? I would give the benefit of the doubt to the medical professionals and the first responders. No one “likes” this situation. Best thing to do? Put on your “big boy” pants and suck it up! It won’t last forever. You can assuredly blame it all on China if it’ll make you feel better. But now’s the time for unity!
