    His parting threat was if we don’t comply. He will shut us down again. We held our breath and it passed but there it’s is again. I’m thinking about what I need to be doing because I feel like I can’t let down my guard.

    Do what you need to do to get ready for a lockdown.

    Is that an oversimplification, perhaps but it is the accurate answer.
    You can’t do anything except move to prevent what will surely happen. After that, look ahead to what you can do to deal with what is coming.

    The idea of placing the blame on the people for not wearing masks, or not standing 6ft apart or having 11 vs 10 people present is idiotic.
    Cannot stop the common cold/flu. Why do they expect to stop this?

    Anyways, another lockdown is coming. Stock up now, do what you can to get ahead of the curve.

    <p style=”text-align: right;”>I am in NC as well. Businesses are going to have a hard time enforcing this. By threatening businesses, he has put them in the place of enforcement. So a minimum wage worker is going to take on an angry, noncompliant customer? In a store like Walmart, where a lot of folks are not on their best behavior anyway? And how does he plan to enforce this “in homes” or cars? I hope people stay out of trouble, but I dont think it is going to work according to plan. To be VERY honest, I can see him setting up reporting lines and checkpoints. My advice to anyone is, make sure your address on your license is up to date, pull your blinds when you are home, and make sure your have a mask with you—-or just “dont be there”—-cuz it is going to get much worse and very expensive before it gets anywhere near better.</p>

    I have family in NC and she says it’s really bad there and the restrictions are tightening more by the day. Add to this all the unrest y’all had a couple of months ago and she is really not loving her stay.

    I wear a mask 10 hours a day for work (driving clients with disabilities, the most sensitive demographic you can get). I don’t like wearing it when no clients are on board, but that’s the rule right now, like it or lump it. My BIL has been in ICU on ventilator and dialysis for over a week, he’s probably not going to make it. Stupid politicos aside, the bug is a beast to some people, and we need to care for our loved ones and ourselves.
