A Michigan judge on Wednesday found that while Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home order does “temporary harm” to the constitutional rights of Michigan residents, the harm doesn’t outweigh the public health risk posed by the coronavirus outbreak.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) on Wednesday said it is “inappropriate” to question his wife’s whereabouts in response to reports that his billionaire spouse, M.K. Pritzker, left town, effectively dodging the state’s stringent stay-at-home orders by purportedly fleeing to their $12.1 million equestrian estate in South Florida.
Pritzker refused to address his wife’s whereabouts during Wednesday’s press briefing, calling it “inappropriate” and stating that it is “reprehensible” that the Patch reporter originally covered the story.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his wife Chirlane McCray were heckled in a Brooklyn park over the weekend after a man called them out for “nonessentially” traveling to the borough when they live in a park in Manhattan
“Seriously, you guys have a park. You live in the middle of a park. You don’t need to nonessentially travel to Brooklyn,” the man said in the video.
Mr. de Blasio and Mrs. McCray, who were both wearing face masks, started to walk away as the mayor responded, “Give it a break.”

There’s a huge difference between that supreme court case and our current situation .
In that ruling the people in question were thought to be sick already.
Never before have we quarantine huge amounts of healthy people to keep them from getting sick. We’ve always quarantined sick people to them from infecting the healthy .
That’s a hell of a big difference especially dealing with our constitutional rights .
