A Serious Step in the Direction of Freedom in Georgia: The Lockdown Begins to End

Brian P. Kemp
Some great news from G eorgia Governor Brian P. Kemp.

He announces:
 Due to favorable data & more testing, gyms, fitness centers, bowling alleys, body art studios, barbers, cosmetologists, hair designers, nail care artists, estheticians, their respective schools & massage therapists can reopen Friday, April 24 with Minimum Basic Operations.
But there remains some micromanaging:
 Minimum Basic Operations includes, but is not limited to, screening workers for fever and respiratory illness, enhancing workplace sanitation, wearing masks & gloves if appropriate, separating workspaces by six feet, teleworking if possible & implementing staggered shifts.
I can deal with the above and then in a week:
 Subject to specific social distancing & sanitation mandates, theaters, private social clubs & restaurant dine-in services will be allowed to reopen on Monday, April 27.
But a bit of control freak remains:
 Bars, nightclubs, operators of amusement park rides & live performance venues will remain closed.
Naturally, the serious power freak, freedom haters are upset:

Hey Freaks, Stay in lockdown forever in your homes if you want, we don't mind. That's how freedom works.



In South Carolina, many retail stores will be allowed to reopen today after the governor decided to ignore federal health officials’ recommendations and in Tennessee, the governor has indicated that he will let stay-at-home restrictions in many places lapse on May 1.

  1. Alaskans are supposed to get our road map to reopening tomorrow.
    It will be interesting to see, as the governor is saying parts of the economy can “open back up” as early as next week.
    Of course, the whole Alaskan economy can open back up, if people would just do so.
