PA to go on LOCKDOWN

My brother in law works at a food distribution place that supplies a large grocery store chain (MN). They were briefed on this and will need a special exemption letter with them in case they get stopped to or from work.

The sources might be reliable but given there are so many chain emails with someone claiming "reliable sources", i think it's best not to spread the misinformation here.

Soup,


I can vouch for the two sources being one is my sister in law active in army, and the other manages / runs EMT branch in major city.


 


NY already started a lockdown...I'm not shocked we are imminent in PA.


 


Also, my organization started reducing staff in office (work from home, buddy system where they rotate in office).....unfortunately I cannot do that being in the clinical side with infectious disease testing.....we never had done anything this drastic....even with last state of emergency blizzards.

Lol at a reliable source being a nurse in the Army. 

I'm calling her reliable because she is my sister in law, and (surprisingly) doesn't freak the f out over everything like women normally do.


 


She informed earlier this afternoon that this would take effect potentially by midnight if not tomorrow afternoon.


 


I mean, even Governor Wolf has mentioned it....not sure if you're trying to troll or not....hold that for another time. We will need the laughs then!

have a hard time seeing this fly in PA..... 

 

 

 

I live in PA, Cue Nick Diaz.

nurses and healthcare workers are literally the "Front line" for this crisis


 


i would certainly take the word of an active nurse in a busy hospital very seriously


 


ive been speaking with many NYC nurses and doctors over the past few weeks, mentioning the internal crises they have in their facilities, as far back as 2 weeks ago, when people were still doubting


 


look where NYC hospitals are now

I work in a grocery store in PA. Today the buzz was everything will be closing including grocery stores. For what its worth I saw 4 cops at different times in their uniform shopping with their families. In 10 plus years that was the only 4 times ive seen that.

No and I don't doubt it will happen. I just thought it was funny that a army nurse is considered a reliable source of info. Of course she will be told to be ready, and also a million other rumors. 

A former OGer (don't think he posts here anymore) in a FB group I'm in said Illinois was this weekend.

I'm not in one of those states mentioned and we have national guard vehicles lined up at one of our local school parking lots.  So I can assume they are getting ready.

That's political suicide.


Plus, not even the cities are closing grocery stores.

The state is in full panic. People are already beginning to freak out. This is extremely concerning. 

If they closed grocery stores riots in the streets would immediately ensue.

I wouldn't doubt it

Though I'm not complaining how are the national Guard or cops or anyone going to tell where you're going. Just say 'going to the grocery', or 'to the clinic or ER'. I doubt they're following you to Kroger.

I agree it's important to follow these but it sounds unenforcible.

I suppose they can stop people running obvious landscaping trucks with mulch and wheelbarrows, or garbage trucks (yikes), or panel trucks with service logos.

Why would they ever close grocery stores lol.

There are some things I've seen recently that suggest this might be the case.

 

I'm unsure if it's legal.

 

I've heard some shit about what's essentially paperwork to allow for gas fill ups being circulated around, where unless you have them you wont be able to purchase gas.

 

I might be misunderstanding what I heard though.

Closing grocery stores is the best way to get a lot of people killed and I don't mean by starvation

Dumb question, maybe - but what exactly constitutes a "grocery store"?

Is it only Food Lion, Safeway, Albertsons, etc type of places?

Does it include walmart, Target, etc (where a lot of people buy their groceries)?

Dollar General & the like that sell groceries?

Entertaining this rumor is on the verge of going total retard.

This makes no fucking sense at all and would almost guarantee mass panic.
