    Holdout governors face pressure to issue stay-at-home orders

    Florida with approx 5 K is on.

    22 States no stay-at-home orders

    16 States nonessential businesses are still open.

    “Texas may have a very narrow window to take tougher action to avert a bad outcome with #COVID19,” he wrote on Twitter. “Building case counts in Dallas and other Texas cities, and a slow state response, are a dangerous harbinger that things could soon explode in that state.”

    In Florida, which Gottlieb warned could become a “major epicenter,” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Monday did issue a stay-at-home order for four counties in South Florida, but not for the entire state.

    Florida now has more than 5,000 cases of coronavirus, making it one of the harder-hit states.

    I'm almost within shouting distance of the villages here in flori-duh. It's a beautiful, huge retirement community spread over three counties and it's a republican stronghold. Every person running for senator, governor, or president better bring their butts here if they expect to get the vote, every republican person that is. The owners of the community are also huge republican supporters themselves. They gave a party for the million dollar donors on their yacht for mitt. My guess is the villages is eighty percent republican. Many, many vets and tons of folks who were in unions when they were working. Now they are the folks who don't like unions, don't like pensions and don't like social programs.

    Our republican governor and one of our republican senators are perfect examples. Our governor said about his black opponent, do we want him in there monkeying things up. That's our governor, the same one who kept the beaches open for spring break and the almighty dollar, the god of the gop. Our current senator who used to be our governor pulled off one of the biggest medicare frauds in history. Great people we elect here in flori-duh.

    Money for republicans is much more important than people lives who they don't know.

    You see? This is the problem. The fact that each state is making these decisions by governors like Ron DeSantis who only cares about the Florida economy and tourist dollars and not thinking about the spread of this virus is precisely why this is going to absolutely ravage Florida, Louisiana and Texas. This country needs to uniformly adhere to the same protocol from state to state. It has to be uniform in ever state according to guidelines set in stone by the federal government. This delay by Florida, Louisiana and Texas is fueling the fire, it's seeding sick people among healthy people. That's how it rages out of control. These states will be in the very same predicament that New York has been dealing with in a matter of a couple of weeks.

    One size doesn't fit all. The state should be in a position to best assess its situation and make the decisions on what level of "stay home" is necessary.

    Maybe, if you got off the Bong you would see more clearly.

    Absolutely not. The states should all be on the same page, this isn't a blue state or a red state problem, this is an extremely serious pandemic, something nobody has seen in a hundred years. Precautions and actions should never be taken retroactively, it has to be proactive or we're going to see this horrendous situation only getting worse. And let me tell you, if the city of New York can't handle this pandemic, how do you think small towns and cities in the mid-west that don't even have hospitals - never mind ICU beds and ventilators going to deal with it?

    Hmm... force all states to do what the worst state, by far, did. How about we mandate that public transit use be stopped? It seems that packing folks into trains and busses just might be a bad idea during a pandemic. Rural areas do not infect persons A and B by having them share rides with persons C through Z.
