Name the country, name the state, name the city… different places with different rules made up by different leaders in charge.
Across Europe, nations are reopening their economies. And each country makes up reopening laws.
In Germany, retail stores will be reopening but will have restrictions on permissible percentages of occupancy. Restaurants will be allowed to open at the end of May, but they have to keep tables six and a half feet apart. Families and friends will be permitted to congregate outside their homes, but they will be restricted to no more than two separate households and they must stay at least five feet apart.
In Italy, some citizens will be permitted to return to work. Group gatherings are still banned, but family visits will be allowed. Italians will be permitted to travel to different provinces to return home, but they will not be allowed to go back and forth. In a 26 April announcement, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte urged Italians to maintain one-meter social distancing (about three feet).
In Belgium, families and friends can meet in their homes, but a maximum of four guests will be permitted at a time per home… and they must always be the same people.
In France, beginning 11 May, small museums, libraries, stores, and open-air markets will be permitted to open with social distancing rules in place. Restaurants, cafes, major museums, and beaches must remain closed until early June. Citizens must wear masks when traveling on public transportation, and gatherings will be limited to ten or fewer.
Indeed, what is called essential and non-essential businesses is purely the decision of the decision-makers-in-charge.
In the United States, with about 30 states allowing some businesses to open, who can do what when, where, and how are simply made up, with not one shred of science to back up the man-made-mandates.
In North Carolina, retail stores can open, but only at a 50 percent occupancy rate, and social distancing rules must be obeyed. Salons, bars, gyms, and theaters will remain closed.
In Kansas City, MO, restaurants must obey the city’s new “10/10/10” rule, which permits no more than 10 percent of a business’s occupancy, or ten people.
Georgia, on the other hand, allowed restaurants, retail stores, and theaters to open but only at 25 percent capacity.
Kansas allowed restaurants, malls, and gyms in much of the state to reopen.
California is allowing some retailers to open, such as flower shops, clothing shops, bookstores, and sporting goods stores, which their Governor dictator claims are “essential,” but they are only permitted to offer curbside pickup. Dine-in restaurants, gyms, and offices must remain closed.
TRENDPOST: These great disparities on how and when businesses can open illustrate the total incompetency of those making up the rules, how the Constitutional Rights of citizens are being violated, and how the majority of the public obey their rulers.
Absent in the lockdowns and “exit strategy” declarations are the dire socioeconomic devastation and psychological damage inflicted upon nations, states… and, most importantly, the majority of citizens.
TRENDPOST: In Cambodia and Laos, where social distancing and lockdowns were not enforced, neither country has reported COVID-19 deaths. And in Lebanon, with a population of 6.8 million and where religious Muslims and Christians often congregate in large numbers, only 26 deaths from the virus have been reported.
