As the pandemic drags on and Coronavirus cases continue to climb, it seems all or most of us are doing what we can to try to slow the spread, so far without any success that you can point to. All or most of us are willing to wear face masks and to social distance inside businesses and public buildings. Many of us have scaled back plans for Thanksgiving get-togethers. Others have canceled travel plans, choosing instead to stay close to home. Regulators around the country are continuing to take steps they say will be helpful in the fight against Covid19 too. Some of the leaders in individual states it seems to me are ordering health regulations, just for the sake of regulating. One order issued by leaders in Pennsylvania Monday is particularly hard for me to understand. They’ve banned alcohol sales in Pennsylvania from noon tomorrow, through this Sunday, saying less alcohol consumption will mean less partying and will slow the spread. Maybe I’m uneducated or uninformed but I can’t figure out how an alcohol ban announced 2 days in advance will result in anything but a run early this week on Pennsylvania’s carry outs and liquor stores. Maybe health officials there know something I don’t, but I doubt it. That’s the way I see it.
