Curfews And Such

Closing Thought–24Mar20

This does NOT pertain to the nation as a whole….I offer up what is happening in my region as to what could be coming to the rest of the country.

It appears that our county supervisors will be taking up the possibility of a 2 week 24 curfew…..

Rumors are circulating about a possible “lockdown” in Harrison County in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson and police chiefs in Harrison County are recommending a two-week, 24-hour curfew beginning Monday night.

Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich said he expects the issue to come up during a Harrison County Board of Supervisors meeting Monday morning.

Peterson and the police chiefs suggest the curfew run through April 6 at 6 p.m.

Possible two-week, 24-hour curfew for Harrison County likely to be discussed by leaders Monday

Read and weep for this could be a policy coming to you and your neighborhood soon.

This is just rumor for now…..we also had a rumor last week that we were going to see martial law in the cities soon…..that did not happen (not yet anyway) but it is still on the table from what I have heard.

This curfew thing would be a blast for MoMo she depends on her walks and if not she gets cranky.

AS I was preparing this post news came out that curfews were not something they want to do at this time….but it is still a consideration…..

On the advice of Coast mayors, the Harrison County Board of Supervisors rejected imposing a curfew Monday, but all warned that day could be coming as the new coronavirus continues to spread.

The supervisors did close the beach to groups of no more than 10, saying exercise and the ability to get outdoors is important for residents.

“There are so many things bouncing around,” Gulfport Mayor Billy Hewes told supervisors at the meeting, which was streamed live on Facebook with only mayors and supervisors in the Gulfport courthouse meeting room.

Something that is still on the table for future considerations.
 
This is the stuff that is coming to an area near you as well.

Be calm……Avoid crowds……Be well….Be Safe

  1. 10 together on a beach is still far too many.
    And a 24/7 curfew? How are people supposed to get out for food ot medicines? Presumably there will have to be some ‘exemptions’?
    Best wishes, Pete.
