CLQHere in Colorado, our ski resorts were shut down by our governor pretty early. I'm really lucky to have a governor who believes in science instead of a republican. How is it in your state?
r00kieAlso, OP, quick pushing the jard partisan thing. Party polics has fucked this country in so many ways and pushing shows you just regurgitate what ever one party tells you to say.
.MASSHOLE.Governor Baker has done a pretty good job.
Little late on shutting down the city IMO but acted swiftly once it became apparent that things were about to get bad, fast.
He just said he wants to start a test and trace program which should be the way to minimize the spread even further.
We don't have the outdoor issues like NH, VT, CO, UT, WY, etc. so once he made the decision to shut things down, people just hunkered down.
It's nice to know there are some members of the GOP with some common sense and a belief in science.

cyphersthousands of sources available to make your point and u picked a talk show. excellent
let me help:
CLQu said i just regurgitate what one party says but that is incorrect. Trump, Pence, fox, etc basically said they are anti-science in that video. thx
cyphersa different user said that actually
and i highly suggest you start separating your entertainment from your news
GORILLAWALLACEI don't live in a city so I don't really see the impact as much but it's pretty much just grocery, liquor, post office, construction etc.
they're supposed to be turning non-residents away at the park gates (banff) but there are still a ton of calgary fuckos coming to hike and stare at closed shops on banff ave.
I mean if I had to live in calgary I'd probably want to go to the mountains too but don't punish us for your life choices
Profahoben_212I was up at mt rushmore the other day to climb a few routes....absolutely deader than a doornail. Creepy almost.
However, every once in a while some family with cali or texas etc plates would drive past. Where the fuck are you people even staying? What the hell are you doing here? All the hotels are shut down in the hills and not a single shop is open. There is one restaurant open in hill city and its to go pizza only. GTFO of here dumbasses. I just don't understand how it would even be fun.
GrandThingsI dont hate Trump because he's a republican, I hate him because he's a unethical moron who could have prevented thousands of unnecessary deaths had he listened to scientists or medical professionals. As Masshole said above I've been pretty impressed with Charlie Baker (our republican Govenor) has handled this and I think Republicans like Mitt Romney or John McCain (rip) or hell even Susan Collins, would have handled this situation with more grace and intelligence. Two important qualities when handling crises, neither of which Trump posseses.
If you're still defending our President at this point, YOU'RE the one blinded by party-based politics.
safarisamI fricken love Montana's governor. Our limitations aren't too heavy but have certainly reduced the number of cases. Bullock went in early, pulled out all the stops, and helped keep it from ravishing small, rural towns.
Sdot.Restaurants and salons are reopening on a limited capacity in Alaska starting this Friday.
freestyler540The people of British Columbia flatten the curve right off the bat. Provincial and federal parks are closed, but they kept the regional parks open as long no one abuses it. Our entertainment has been shut down, but we have so much forest that we always have a place to unwind.
One of my neighbours got himself tested for covid yesterday. So far he did a great job quarantining.
Sdot.Alaska has 339 confirmed cases with 9 total deaths (two of which were actually Alaska residents who both contracted the virus and died outside of Alaska) and 209 recoveries.
theabortionatorI feel bad for NY. My family there are all doing alright. None of them are in the city these days at least. Have a bunch of friends there though. Shits rowdy and the numbers aren't good. But they seem to be making the best of it.
DIRTYBUBBLETom Wolf is a fucking moron for closing all the liquor stores in PA. We’re literally the only fucking state that decided to do that. You know what everyone is doing now? Driving to West Virginia/Ohio to buy booze. Isn’t that a great policy for stopping the spread of corona
