Unprecedented: “You Must Stay At Home“
“Staying at home doesn’t mean making a daily stop at the grocery store because you need to get out of the house. Staying at home means you must stay at home.” The unelected transgendered Pediatrician and Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine issuing stay-at-home orders for all Pennsylvanians in all 67 Pennsylvania counties effective on Wednesday, April 1, at 8 p.m.
U.S. District Court Judge William Stickman IV said that he is not convinced of the Wolf administration’s argument “that irreparable harm will result if a stay is not imposed.”
Stickman pointed to Wolf’s own move to allow restaurants to increase their indoor dining capacity to 50% beginning Monday, writing that the administration did nothing to show that those situations “are categorically different than others covered by a numeric limitation.”
“Defendants did not adduce any evidence that would explain and justify treating social, cultural, political and other similar gatherings differently from commercial gatherings covered by a percentage of occupancy-based limitation,” he wrote.
He said none of the state’s testimony showed why some types of gatherings should be limited by a hard numeric limit and others by a percentage of occupancy.
“For example,” Stickman wrote, “nobody explained why hundreds may gather indoors to shop (the larger the facility, the more people permitted), dozens may dine in a restaurant (again, the larger the restaurant, the more will be permitted), but no more than 25 may attend an indoor lecture, a speech or a wedding.”
