County Execs In Upstate New York Want 14-Day Quarantine For NYC Travelers

Published

The fight against coronavirus is getting fairly intense all around the globe, but it seems some truly unprecedented measures are being taken to flatten the curve in the state of New York.

Apparently, New York state county executives are wanting to impose 14-day quarantine measures around the lines for their counties on anyone who might be traveling into their area from coronavirus hotbeds like New York City.

Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner:

Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin told the Washington Examiner he informed New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker on Friday that he would issue a health order enforcing a 14-day quarantine on any visitors.

“Cuomo seized power in one of his executive orders … and vested it in the health department and the state health department. Prior to that, county health departments had wide latitude in state statute,” McLaughlin said. “It still remains in state statute, but he set it up in his mind so that we had to go to him and get permission. So, we did that. We said we don’t want people coming here, but if they are, we want a 14-day quarantine.”

McLaughin stated that Gov. Cuomo did not immediately respond, so he went ahead and released the order about the same time as Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo put out a similar order calling for travelers from New York to quarantine for 14 days after visiting the state.

Cuomo ended up threatening Raimondo with legal action after the order was issued, which led to its repeal.

McLaughlin already stated that he is getting calls from other counties who are wanting to impose a similar order.

When you look at the numbers from Rensselaer County, it’s not hard to understand why they want to keep folks from areas that are experiencing an explosion of cases from coming into their area. The county is 2 1/2 hours north of NYC and boasts a population of more than 150,000 people.

As of now, they have only 52 cases of the virus. They obviously want to keep things that way, and a good way to do it is to impose measures that allow them to keep folks out who could be potential carriers.

What’s truly ironic about all of this is how the vast majority of individuals wanting to take these kind of measures are radical leftists who hated on conservatives for wanting to keep illegal immigrants out of our country because of illness and disease among other reasons.

Now all of the sudden they are discovering how effective keeping people out of their areas can be in this kind of situation. These kind of measures work and this virus is highlighting that fact for all to see.

The left will definitely have a harder time arguing against a secure border and the enforcement of immigration law after this is all said and done.

Save conservative media!

Trump to ‘Lightweight’ Reporter: ‘Don’t Ever Talk to the President That Way!’ — VIDEO

Tell ’em, Donald!

Donald Trump made all the moves necessary in his first term to earn another four years in the White House. Before the pandemic, the economy was soaring, unemployment hit record lows, and peace deals were made all over the globe. But the mainstream media didn’t care. It didn’t matter to them that he accomplished more in four years than most presidents could’ve dreamed in two terms. They are as disrespectful as they are ruthless. On Thanksgiving Day, POTUS had to tell off one of the far-left hacks. He said, “The whole election was a fraud. They have Biden beating Obama in areas that matter in terms of the election in swing states. And yet he’s losing to Obama all over the place. And yet he’s beating Obama inplaces that mattered in terms of the election. Look, between you people… Look, don’t talk to me that way, you’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the President of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the President that way. OK I’m going to go with another question… Massive fraud has been found. We’re like a third world country. We’re using computers that can be hacked. How many glitches did they find. Oh, a glitch. Oh, gee we had a glitch. 5,000 votes. In all cases the votes switched to Joe Biden.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=19&v=I34X2PQKAA8&feature=emb_title Under Biden, America would never come first.

Multiple NFL Players Take A Knee for the National Anthem On Thanksgiving Day

Enough is enough!

The fact that sports commissioners are allowing players to turn games into messages for social justice shows exactly who is in charge – and it’s not the adults. Taking a knee during the national anthem should never be allowed, nor respected. From New York Post: “No thanks!” the president wrote on Twitter Wednesday. Trump fired off the two-word response after Detroit Lions’ quarterback Matthew Stafford and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson took a knee before the teams’ annual Thanksgiving game at Ford Field in downtown Detroit. The players were protesting against police brutality and racism in the U.S. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1332055759551680523 Even though these NBA players stood for a moment of silence to commemorate the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, they still knelt once the Star Spangled Banner began playing. Pathetic. Enough is enough!
