First of all, the rule makes no sense unless there are road blocks into the city and areas of quarantine are set up like in many countries when new arrivals come into their country.
I really think this lady has lost her marbles.

How are they enforcing it ? No one can go without food or water for 14 days. Hollow words is all I see from the politicians.

They had screening points on Interstates coming into Florida.

From Your Link:

People coming to Chicago from 15 states experiencing a surge in coronavirus cases must self-quarantine for 14 days upon entering the city beginning next week, Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced late Thursday afternoon.

The city ordered the quarantine for anyone who has spent more than 24 hours in the following states before arriving in Chicago: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah.

The order, which will go into effect on Monday, does not apply to people who are at the airport for a connecting flight or driving through the city on their way elsewhere, city officials said.

“Like every action we have taken in response to the COVID-19 crisis, this decision was difficult but necessary in order to ensure the continued health and safety of Chicago’s residents and businesses,” Lightfoot said in a statement.

Anyone violating the order could face fines of $100 to $500 per day, up to a maximum $7,000, the city said.

Under the order, “quarantine means staying at a single designated home or dwelling for 14 days before doing any activities outside of the home or dwelling,” the city said.

The order by Lightfoot mirrors a similar measure taken in New York City. It was unclear how the city plans to monitor or enforce the order.


So you need to arrive in Chicago 14 days before your scheduled business meeting? I hope everyone just stays out of Chicago. Drive the city and the state of Illinois deeper into the financial hole!

BTW: 556 Chicago citizens SHOT in June: heyjackass.com...

Mayor Lightfoot takes ZERO action to reduce the July numbers.

First of all, you gotta put threads like this in the Mud Pit.
Second of all, she is a Dem...she never had any marbles to begin with.
Last...stay as far away as possible from Sh!tcago, your life depends on it.

Its sad to see Chicago crumble. We used to go to that big Italian store there on the outskirts of Chicago to buy a lot of my father's Italian food, including them snails.

Will this stop the flow of drugs into Chicago? Will there be drug dogs at all check point?

Pretty sure the idea is to dissuade people from even trying. So, no business trips. Staying with family? Fine, you're their chore for 14 days. Most reasonable people would think "oh, I should be safe, and not be a dumb jerk just because I can." Cant say that's been working out that well so far, but... who knows. Maybe today will be the day people actually care about others before themselves.

Edit: starting Monday. Purge this weekend!

Yes and no. This thread would play well in the Mud Pit.

My belief is that we need to learn how to be civil within a political thread. Why? Look at the pit. Is that discussion for the most part, or just echo-chambering? I think discussions is FAR more valuable than flags and stars. Myself, I wouldn't start a thread in the PIt in which I wanted thoughtful discussion.

I have no idea but one coworker told me he sent his wife and grandchild to other state to visit family and now they have to stay there.

Most of people knew this with anticipation. I guess nobody is trying to come through now.

Yup, we got the same thing here in NY from governor /emperor cuomo.
www.wktv.com...


"We've set metrics for community spread just as we've set metrics for everything the state does to fight COVID-19, and eight more states have reached the level of spread required to qualify for New York's travel advisory, meaning we will now require individuals traveling to New York from those states to quarantine for 14 days," said Cuomo.

I do about everything in the mud pit, as I'm tired of always having mods post that one post. "This is NOT the mud pit", so it's a pre-emtive strike. Hit them first so to speak. Plus I'm a huge suck up and brown noser, so there is that.

If I was going to Chicago I'd be more worried about getting shot than a covid quarantine.

I agree, people need to get supplies and not everyone has support.

An elderly friend of mine finally made it back from mexico. I had his dog for the winter, also elderly, and didn't have a car she could get into, nor can I lift her, so couldn't drop her off. He drove over to get her, keeping a huge distance, and in doing so risks being reported. Canada has threatened up to maximum fine of $750,000/and or 6 months in prison. How in the fn hell is this fair? We have one case on an island with a population of 870,297 over a land mass of 32,130 km². Police state is what it is. I get that travellers should voluntarily isolate but my friend is on two separate watch lists with two government entities, and any report of him in public will involve the police being sent to his home way out in the boonies. He can be randomly phoned at any time of day and must prove himself at home. He left his canadian sim card in mexico by accident so is expecting a police visit the first time he doesn't answer the phone at the number he gave. He has no symptoms and has been an area of mexico with no cases for months. Just nuts.

It is her way of say “ I tried” when all of this comes back to roost. She doesn’t plan on enforcing it, just saying it for history, or should I phrase it “herstory”.

I meant to speak to you about that. Your suckup and brownosing skills are really quite deficient.


Regarding the OP, while it is extremely difficult to imagine having to quarantine for interstate travel, there are many countries imposing the same. I tend to be pragmatic in these instances: I may not agree with the rule, but it is in place with consequences. Therefore, I will follow it. I will follow it until the rule becomes such that it threatens to destroy the integrity of the country. There are many that think we are there already.

I think that if we knew all about this virus, its effects, its permanent consequences, immunities conferred (or not), strains and attenuation (or not), we would all, collectively be in a far better place to make long-term decisions for all of us. I think much of the bulk of humanity lives WAY too close together, and this event certainly outlines the detriment of doing so. I think if there are any containment measures imposed, they should be focused upon cities, and great conglomerations of humanity.

This will likely be a "thing" for several years. I really can't judge any government's approach. Who the hell knows what is right? We can see what happens when suppression measures are relaxed. How do we want to live?

It's part of why we moved to the Caribbean so many years ago. We wanted to be more self-determining. We were wrong in thinking we could achieve that here, but still not sorry we moved. ;o)
