April 8, 2020 – NO Soundbites Allowed – In Broome County New York, Executive Jason Garnar announced extreme steps to ensure the safety of the public. #OperationCrushCovid requires people to remain home on even or odd days – depending on your year of birth. An effort to limit contracting Coronavirus, and protect the most at-risk.
Is this effectively solitary confinement? Is this Government overreaching its power? In a County with 6 deaths out of a population of 193,000, a 99.999% survivability rate, will this extreme action help or hurt the community? Should other Counties in New York, and States around the nation, follow this example to protect the public?
