Xcott: I drove through the middle of Utah once.   If I came in on US highway 50 towards Green River, exactly who would I disclose my travel plans to?  Coyotes?


Coyotes usually drop off their cargo in Texas or California

Someone else picks them up at that point

propasaurus: Benevolent Misanthrope: Meanwhile, in Alaska, everyone entering the State is required to quarantine for 14 days.  You have to fill in a form saying where you will be quarantined.  They check.

In my tiny town, everyone arriving from outside town is also required to quarantine for 14 more days.

Arriving how? Are all the ports, roads, bridges, etc closed?


"Small town" in Alaska may very well be one road in and one road out or something similar that's easy to monitor, and a stranger wandering around would draw the attention of all 18 people, 20 huskies and the local moose.

Exactly.  Huge police presence for the size of the town, they don't have enough to do, and they notice.  The huskies lose their shiat at the slightest provocation anyway.  There was a moose down on Main St. this morning (seriously), and he - characteristically - didn't give a shiat.

In the desert it doesn't take many police officers to monitor every road in and out. They don't need a town at the border. They only need a car, a gun, some gloves, and a shovel.

I think this is a good thing. It is setting precedent that states have the right to restrict or refuse entry and travel by residents of other states. This will be useful as some states create policies for single payer health care, state-funded third-level education, and similar progressive initiatives, and people from crappy states try to drive to the next state to take advantage.

I live in Salt Lake and I don't even know what this is about or what purpose they hope to accomplish. People are driving all over the place within the state. Utahns are driving out of state and returning. Having a few out of staters milling about isn't likely to add to the issue so long as the basic guidelines already in place are followed.

I guess what I'm saying is either close the border or don't. I say close it. That would be entertaining.

HideAndGoFarkYourself: Fark that.

I predict that following this pandemic we are going to see A LOT of civil rights lawsuits wind themselves through the courts because of some of the unreasonable things, like this, that Governors have been doing. There are going to be a lot of checks on just what actual authority elected officials have to shred the constitution when they declare emergencies.


You're wrong

You'll see why in a few months

We're about to hit an economic crisis the likes of which this country has never seen

This republic is about to end. With no faith of American governmental institutions and an incompetent fool at its head, we'll be lucky to have any civil rights left from the confusion and desperate actions of strongmen who think they can rule this country better than anyone else.

This is not like the 30s. Americans had faith in its institutions and its leaders at that point of history.

Ketchup and mayo.  Enough said.

Imagine a society that says "yep, we invented this.  If the heathens act right, we will share the recipe".

Then imagine how we laugh.  Oh how we laugh.

Of course, their women are treated as objects that men can possess multiple of, but that too is hilarious.

Airstrip and ferry, they have "officials" posted to require a form, then other volunters/police escort people to their place of quarantine.  The one road in comes from Canada and there are people posted here too just in case something comes that is "essential".

I'm not sure of the exact implementation, because I'm at home.  But I do know several people have been cited by the cops so far for walking their dog too far from home or being where the assholes thought they didn't need to be.


You have a road coming into town? You must live in the South East. Most the small towns/villages I've been to are only air and sea access. Some don't even have roads in town. I'm a big city girl. I live in the thriving metropolis of Fairbanks (population 31,000).

I wasn't aware that we had the quarantine for  people coming in. Makes sense though as we have one of the lower rates of infection.

Technically, it can't been done. At least I think. First freedom of movement is pretty ingrained. Second, the damned interstate commerce clause which the federal government regularly abuses. I fully expect many constitutional challenges as some point, and I'm a little surprised that haven't already started. Except, the courts are kind of shut down too.
