New York City sets up quarantine checkpoints as it toughens state travel restrictions
New York City is setting up quarantine checkpoints at ‚Äúkey entry points‚ÄĚ along main bridges and tunnels to the city to screen travelers coming from more than 30 states with bad coronavirus outbreaks, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday.
‚ÄúTravelers coming in from those states will be given information about the quarantine, they will be reminded that it is required, not optional,‚ÄĚ de Blasio said at a press briefing. ‚ÄúThey‚Äôll be reminded that failure to quarantine is a violation of state law and it comes with serious penalties.‚ÄĚ The checkpoints will begin Wednesday.
Dr. Ted Long, head of New York City‚Äôs Test & Trace Corps, said that a fifth of all new coronavirus cases in New York City are from out-of-state travelers....
From what I understand, your Dr Fauci has himself changed his mind, about the infectability of the virus, about wearing masks, and even the origins of this virus. His group even gave huge grants some years ago to the very Wuhan laboratory where this virus came from, Dr Fauci has been in meetings with people like Bill Gates, and he is behind a lot of this vaccines and big pharma anyway!! He is in the pocket of the globalists, and now is behind the lockdowns, compulsory universal mask wearing, and will definitely support mandatory universal vaccinations. President Trump should have got rid of him ages ago. I much prefer the Swedish epidemiologist who led his country, Sweden, in a sensible policy of banning very large crowds, physical distancing, hand washing, effective quarantine of those proven to have the virus, but essentially leaving everything else to run as normal, and no disastrous lockdowns. Sweden is in a much better shape now than many other countries that the Dr Fauci route!

Well Jim, if you aren‚Äôt an epidemiologist, then how do you know which ones are right?

This takes us back to the Soviet Union. I understand that as well as the foreign travel passport, (of course, only a few highly trusted Communist Party members, as well as athletes, circus stars, musicians, ballet dancers, etc, travelling in organised and chaperoned groups were allowed to have these), all Soviet citizens had a kind of internal passport, which was produced at police checkpoints as they went from one to another province or sector of the Soviet Union. They had to have permission even to travel from one area of their country to another. In Nazi Germany, the Gestapo regularly stopped people at railway and bus stations to check their papers. In truly democratic countries, you do not impose internal borders, or ban people from travelling into or out of an area. Our freedoms are disappearing fast, and government by decree without recourse to the legislature, is becoming the established norm.
Interesting article oh, I see Nebraskans are on the germy list. And...

Fauci said differences in the seriousness with which people had taken the virus in the United States had hampered the response to the pandemic in comparison to other countries.
"We have somewhat of a disjointed approach to things," he said. "If we had a uniformity of it, and everybody rode together in the same boat, we probably would do much better."
Fauci and other medical professionals have urged Americans to wear masks and maintain a social distance to prevent the spread of the virus. He lamented the fact that mask-wearing had become political earlier in the pandemic....
