    Would like to see the statistics that justify this stay at home order even though it does allow the same latitude we are exercising without it. I don’t mind doing what is needed to help out but I would like to know what in particular prompted this. The Government asks us not to panic and I am wondering if they have jumped the gun or is this warranted?
