Finding out that we're closer to having herd immunity than we know would be awesome.

They can't roll out the testing for anti-bodies soon enough. The statisticians should be able to figure out how many of us will need to be tested to get a real idea of where we're actually at. I'll be first in line to volunteer my blood.

What an absolute load of BS:

https://www.mlive.com/public-interest/2 ... hZCwCr9BrQ

Grocery stores and other retailers that sell food, medicine and other essentials are allowed to remain open during the stay-at-home order, although they’ll now be subject to additional occupancy restrictions and be required to shut down non-essential areas of the store, including sections dedicated to carpeting, flooring, furniture, garden centers, plant nurseries or paint.

So now we can't even grow our own food?

Also can't travel between residences beginning April 10th.

Like I said....we're about one step away from being locked in our own homes from the outside.

Where do you see anything about not being able to travel between residences?

Straight from the order itself:
Individuals may also travel:

To return to a home or place of residence from outside this state.

To leave this state for a home or residence elsewhere.

Between two residences in this state, through April 10, 2020. After that date, travel between two residences is not permitted.

Beyond her making this all about race today on the "show", she also needs to start lightening up on the lockdowns or you will start to see a whole bunch of folks just outright abandoning the concept and getting back to their own life.

I just got to thinking - computer models are still showing a possible major snowstorm hitting some part of the northern half of the state. If that storm hits, and you have a second home or a cabin in that area, you can't even legally go check up on your own property.

Not really enforceable, IMHO.

The housewife's are really giving Whitmer a drumming on facebook.

Not even close to enforceable. But the mere fact that this even exists in writing is absolutely ludacris.

btw - simple legal loophole: Go from Residence #1 to the grocery store, then from the Grocery store to Residence #2. That way you're not travelling "between 2 residences"

While the ban on traveling between residences is harsh, I can understand the rationale.

Very few cases of COVID-19 have been reported up north. I'm guessing some folks in Lansing want to keep it that way by limiting inbound traffic from downstate.

That's a great report from WUOM, Audiophile. Thank you for sharing it.

You're welcome MW!

I don't think anyone is paying attention to travel ban. It's getting to joke-like status, and that's not good!

Most local police departments and county sheriffs have stated they're making no effort to enforce most aspects of the orders. They have inadequate resources to do so, and let's face it, they're also concerned about damaging their rapport with the general public.

People are taking notice.

Not sure how anyone can say that it's okay for someone that lives in Warren, Ohio to go to their cottage in Michigan while at the same it's illegal for someone from Warren, MI to do the same. Yet, that's exactly how executive order 2020-42 is written.

Not only does this miss the mark, it's almost certainly unconstitutional.
