I remain at home, you should too

Recently there has been an increase in protesters across the country, claiming that the “stay-at-home” policies enacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic are infringing on our rights given by the constitution. Many good people have lost their sources of income because of widespread shutdown of “non-essential” businesses. Some claim that this is a government overreach, and others claim that the data being used to estimate quarantine time is flawed. As a concerned community member, I am here to say that these people need to seriously consider the implications of their actions on the rest of our island community.
