    This is asinine. Life is full of risks and it should be a personal choice on how much one is willing to take. Instead, let’s push for an early release of vaccines and therapeutics. Keep the politics out of this. I’d bet if this were not an election year, none of this over-reach would be occurring.

    Restrict the old people to their home but those that are the problem, school attendees, get to do what they want. I WILL NOT BE LOCKED UP AGAIN!!!!!!
