Fabro eye doctor Talbot you also we’re standing by you heard about those measures are are they stiff enough it looks like like. a bra with thing maybe there’s a little bit to be desired the y get Denise

Denise tornado tonight in tonight tonight tonight announced meant is better than we expected I think closer to what we’ve been asking for which is a watch witches to watch bears do and watch there’s no confusion in terms of taking the strategy for the idea that they can Target their measures in the difference between a Target has actually pretty straightforward when you’re targeting you tell people which which things are going to remain open tell them which ones are going to be closed down close to Norwalk town you tell which is going to be open at this point that increases confusion than mine so I think it would have benefited if they have started off with lockdown lockdown and emphasized that you’re not to go out of your house indoors unless you’re doing you’re doing an essential service and essential Services include things like Health Care and getting your groceries and set check and that in your home you should not have anybody in your own fine finally that if you’re going you do need exercise you do need mental health breaks you do need to socialize people that you should do it outside and that you should supposed to leave leave that’s a lot simpler than lifting nothing lifting nothing listing the things that they get the question that will be working on until until probably tomorrow morning is
