  1. They need to shut down non essential businesses and not give them a choice! It is ridiculous that they are being given a choice. This is so very important and we need to treat it as it is. I see all the things other states are doing and then our State is the a choice. I am doing what they are asking but many are not. I want this thing over so I can stop worrying about my kids who are working non essential jobs because the places wont shut down and nobody is making them . I want to see my grandkids. Please somebody take this more seriously.I sit in my house scared to go out and crying because I do not know if we are going to make it out of this alive or if i am going to have yo go through the loss of another one of my children as i already lost a daughter 9 years ago. Thete was nothing i could do to stop that but you can do as much as possible to stop this.
