ONE case in the county and we still have businesses shut down or at reduced capacity. The politicians are crushing small business and it's time to open up. I realize that the election is 3 months ahead and if we open up it will look like we are having success at dealing with the virus. The rules are arbitrary at best. There is no science as they purport that we must follow. Casino yes, church no. Restaurants have been hit the hardest and thousands have closed forever. Luckily the virus cannot spread if you are sitting down but if you stand up it can spread. Bottom line, we elect the wrong people to make decisions for us.
