    Oregon governor orders two-week 'freeze,' starting Nov. 18

    WTF?


    Portland, Ore. — Friday, Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced a state wide “Two Week Freeze” she says is to stop rapid spread of COVID-19.


    Governor Brown says the two week freeze will start November 18th and last until December 2nd.

    Individuals should start to be in compliance now. Given the data and modeling they are seeing, it may take longer than two weeks to flatten the curve and slow the spread of the virus. There are some covid-19 hotspot counties that are likely to stay in the freeze for longer than two weeks. Multnomah County will be in the freeze for at least four weeks. The Governor says be prepared.

    The Two-Week Freeze measures include:

    · Limiting social get-togethers (indoors and outdoors) to no more than six people, total, from no more than two households.

    · Limiting faith based organizations to a maximum of 25 people indoors or 50 people outdoors.

    · Limiting restaurants and bars to take-out only.

    · Closing gyms and fitness organizations.

    · Closing indoor recreational facilities, museums, indoor entertainment activities, and indoor pools and sports courts.

    · Closing outdoor recreational facilities, zoos, gardens, aquariums, outdoor entertainment activities, and outdoor pools.

    · Limiting grocery stores and pharmacies to a maximum of 75% capacity and encouraging curbside pick-up.

    · Limiting retail stores and retail malls (indoor and outdoor) to a maximum of 75% capacity and encouraging curbside pick-up.

    · Closing venues (that host or facilitate indoor or outdoor events).

    · Requiring all businesses to mandate work-from-home to the greatest extent possible and closing offices to the public.

    · Prohibiting indoor visiting in long-term care facilities.

    According to the Governor’s Press Office, The Two-Week Freeze does not apply to or change current health and safety protocols for personal services (such as barber shops, hair salons, and non-medical massage therapy), congregate homeless sheltering, outdoor recreation and sports, youth programs, childcare, K-12 schools, K-12 sports currently allowed, current Division 1 and professional athletics exemptions, and higher education — all of which can continue operating under previous guidance issued by the Oregon Health Authority.

When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage.

    Vermont shut down...I read Washington and Ohio are also gearing up for another Corona Shut Down.

    MONTPELIER — Warning that the state is “at a tipping point” for controlling of the COVID-19 pandemic and keeping schools and businesses open, Vermont is prohibiting multi-family parties and gatherings, shutting down bars and social clubs after Saturday night, and pausing recreational youth sports leagues, Gov. Phil Scott said Friday.

    ...

    According to the state’s COVID-19 data dashboard, 21 Vermonters are hospitalized with the virus, and three of those are in intensive care units.

    Bars will be ordered closed as of 10 p.m. Saturday, Scott said during his twice-weekly press conference on Friday.

    “I know this is incredibly discouraging, especially because many of you have worked so hard and we’ve had much success for so long,” Scott said. “But the fact is people are getting together, not being careful and letting their guard down, and that’s why we are in this position today.”

    Scott said he took the actions based on data showing that social gatherings are where cases are growing. “We’re targeting areas we see are problematic,” he said.

    The new requirements are on top of travel restrictions issued Tuesday ordering quarantines for persons traveling outside of the state, except for essential travel.

    Returning college students must quarantine for 14 days, or seven days without symptoms and a negative PCR test.

    Scott and Dr. Mark Levine, the state’s health commissioner, said data and contact tracing is showing that many new cases were transmitted about 12 days following Halloween parties, in addition to the outbreak traced to teams and families connected to Central Vermont Civic Center.

    “Though we’ve been warning against these activities for weeks, they’re still happening,” Scott said. “We have no choice but to restrict social gatherings, whether in homes, bars or parking lots.”

    Additional restrictions announced by Scott on Friday include closing restaurants for in-person dining after 10 p.m. as of Saturday; requiring restaurants, museums, gyms and other customer-oriented establishments to keep a daily log of all who enter; and requiring telecommuting for all workers who can.

    Schools may continue in-person learning, and Education Secretary Daniel French said the Agency of Education is not planning to pre-emptively return schools to remote learning following the Thanksgiving holiday. He said the department would monitor the situation, but does not think a return to remote learning is in students’ best interests at the moment.

    Scott also made it mandatory for residents to cooperate with the state’s contact tracers when they call seeking information. “We need people to be cooperative and honest when they call,” Scott said.

    Freeze sounds so much better than a Lockdown.

    And they are PUSHING THE PANIC to distract from the Illegitimate Election.

    The best strategy government can come up with amounts to: Hide.

    PA gov announces new COVID rules, including wearing a mask in your house

    Pennsylvania is planning to take additional steps to address a sharp increase in coronavirus infections and hospitalizations, including requiring masks to be worn indoors with limited exceptions, officials said Tuesday.

    In addition, starting Friday, anyone who enters Pennsylvania must be tested at least 72 hours before arrival, and if they can or do not get a test, they must quarantine for 14 days. The order does not apply to people who commute to neighboring states for work or health care, officials said, and will be largely self-enforced.

    Pennsylvania already has a statewide mask mandate, limits on indoor and outdoor gatherings and occupancy restrictions at bars and restaurants.

    But the new rules go even further. Masks are required outside where it isn’t possible to maintain at least a six-foot distance from others, according to the order, and inside where people from multiple households are gathering, even if they can maintain a social distance.

    I have not worn a "Government Compliance Mask" since all this BS began. I sure as hell am not going to start now, outside or in.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”
