Yikes. The Kentucky governor isn’t screwing around with the lockdown. Gov. Beshear just announced new draconian measures to stop the spread of coronavirus. From News Channel 5 in Nashville:
Beshear also addressed religious leaders and church members, urging them to stay home this Easter. He said all but about seven churches have agreed not to gather in person this Sunday, and continued to ask all congregations not to gather.
For those who decide to participate in a mass gathering of any type of which the state is notified of, the license plates of those individuals will be recorded and given to health department officials. They will then visit the individuals home bringing with them an order to quarantine for 14 days.
The enforcement does not apply to drive-in churches.
Officials say Kentucky has 1,693 cases and 90 people have died.
He’s gonna get a lot of blowback for this, I’m seeing already online.
There others who support the lockdown, but say this kind of stuff will actually turn people off and force them to be against the physical distancing measures. I think they’re right.
It’s getting serious.
