I think the Governor’s mitigation efforts show his heart is too small when it comes to small businesses – especially during this holiday season. Many cities, even cities in Pennsylvania, have had similar restrictions in effect for some time yet their numbers have still been increasing. The Governor continues to send inconsistent and unclear messages to the Commonwealth’s citizens through temporary yet broad-reaching shutdowns of our economy.
What we need is people to wear masks and practice social distancing. Arbitrarily closing businesses only pushes people away from operators that work hard to limit the spread and have mitigation efforts in place.
We need to be concerned about our hospitals and our healthcare system. I am just not convinced that what the Governor is proposing will slow down the spread.
