New York Governor Andrew Cuomo forcefully rejected the idea of a federal quarantine on the state of New York during an appearance on CNN Saturday, going so far as to describe such a proposal as a “federal declaration of war.”
New York is currently ground zero for the Chinese coronavirus in the United States. One third of total cases in the country are in the Empire State.
Cuomo described proposals for a federal quarantine on the state, in which travel would be restricted from New York to other states in the union, as “totally bizarre, counter-productive, anti-American, anti-social.”
The President ultimately ended up deciding against the idea of a quarantine targeting New York on Saturday, after initially considering it. President Trump ultimately decided that the Center for Disease Control would provide a travel advisory, considering the advanced nature of the epidemic in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
On the recommendation of the White House CoronaVirus Task Force, and upon consultation with the Governor’s of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, I have asked the @CDCgov to issue a strong Travel Advisory, to be administered by the Governors, in consultation with the….

It’s probably for the best that President Trump ultimately decided against a federal quarantine targeting New York and the tristate area. Such an unprecedented federal action would inflame relations between Americans in an hour of crisis where they must unite beyond regional boundaries to overcome the coronavirus epidemic as one nation.
Other states in the union have proven less willing to treat citizens of New York in an equitable manner as it is ravaged by the coronavirus. Rhode Island’s Governor- a Democrat, like Cuomo- enacted a draconian executive order that forces New Yorkers fleeing to the state to identify themselves to state law enforcement, and orders them to subject themselves to mandatory 14-day quarantines.
The people of the United States will ultimately defeat the coronavirus epidemic as a nation, even if some Democrat-run states want to single out New Yorkers for questionable medical scrutiny.
Los Angeles Enacts Full Coronavirus Lockdown for Three Weeks
They can’t keep the virus under control.
Los Angeles County officials have issued a three-week stay-at-home order on the county’s ten million residents, returning life to the first months of Chinese coronavirus lockdown for Los Angelenos.
The lockdown, which will last from November 30th to December 20th, will urge residents of the county to stay in their homes. Church services and protests are permitted. Businesses and organizations are being required to enact strict occupancy limits, with businesses deemed essential by the county allowed to accommodate more patrons than others.
NEW ORDERS in LA Monday:
1. Only household gatherings, unless church or protests.
2. Retail. 35% occupancy max in store
3. Non essential retail and personal care, 20% occupancy
4. Outdoor fitness centers: 50% occupancy

Restaurants in Los Angeles were ordered to suspend outdoor dining just two days ago, with county officials determining that such behavior was spreading the virus. The restaurant and business community have warned that repeating lengthy shutdowns could permanently cripple the city’s dining industry.
The lockdown comes as Los Angeles has incurred 4,751 new diagnosed cases of Chinese coronavirus within the past five days. Los Angeles public health officials had earlier created guidelines which would recommend the county take public health action if more than 4,500 new cases occurred over such a time frame. Hospitalizations and deaths have also surged, but the disease has generally proven to be less lethal on a per-capita case basis than it was at the beginning of the coronavirus epidemic in America.
“With the recent surge of COVID-19 across our community, we must take additional safety measures to reduce the risk of illness and death from this terrible virus and protect our healthcare system,” said L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer.
Democrat-aligned states and urban communities have generally, but consistently incurred the worst outbreaks of the coronavirus pandemic in America. Unfortunately, it may ultimately prove that repeating lockdown measures instituted by local officials isn’t sufficient to deter its spread.
