Officials who are issuing orders to close down businesses must realize the owners will lose their income. Those who are issuing the orders seem to continue to receive their paychecks. Perhaps they should consider sacrificing their paychecks so they will understand the effect of their orders.

If everyone had closed down, social distanced and wore masks for a month this would be over now. That, coupled with federally backed payments and health treatment for the month + duration, was achievable if not for the nonsense spread via twitter/facebook/fox/limbaugh/ q. The problem was/is politicizing those logical, workable actions. Open/close, public gatherings, no masks (see White House staff) is what keeps Covid going. And people dying.
