Protestors have claimed there is, evil behind Gov. Roy Cooper’s stay-at-home order aimed at limiting the spread of coronavirus.” Group after group have made their statement by protesting without masks, and some with guns instead. What do they want from our governor? If we do what they are asking for, we won’t be able to see a light at the end of the tunnel with this virus. 

According to The News Observer, “About 200 churchgoers rallied on the lawn of the Legislative Building in downtown Raleigh Thursday, insisting that they be allowed to hold regular worship service in spite of North Carolina’s stay-at-home orders.” Some claim the quarantine should be lifted for religion, but others demand much more than just that. People across the entire country have been standing for all businesses to reopen.

What people call the ReOpen America Movement has swept the entire country and has recently gone down in protest numbers, but needs to become 0 quickly. “In the USA, there have been 1,445,867 confirmed cases and 87,643 deaths,” says this site. The protestors are arguing for our economics, which means risking not only our lives but also a chance at ending quarantine soon at all.
