I recently read an article from a local news source (link below). It listed regulations set up by some states in regard to incoming travel from other states.
Since I think some of you live in Massachusetts, I'm posting the portion that pertains to that state because I have a question that some of you may be able to answer. It may be a dumb question, but I am curious.
People traveling to Massachusetts must complete a Massachusetts travel form and either quarantine for 14 days or produce a negative COVID-19 test that has been administered up to 72 hours prior to the person’s arrival in the state.
My question revolves around how this is enforced. So, let's say that I was traveling to Boston (a city that is on my bucket list, btw). I can see that it may be fairly easy to have me complete a travel form if I arrived at an airport, bus terminal, or train station. However, if I jumped in my vehicle tomorrow and headed to Boston; how would they know whether or not I have completed a travel form? Although it's possible, I seriously doubt that road blocks have been set up. So, do they just pull over every vehicle with an out-of-state license plate? Or, do they only worry about travelers coming via public transportation?
Several states are requiring a negative COVID-19 test before entering, and are requesting or requiring visitors to self-quarantine for up to 14 days upon arrival.www.wane.com
I have wondered what area of Indiana you hailed from. WANE is owned by teh company that owns the station I work for.
As for Corona, so far I have known around ten (maybe a few more) that have gotten from family, work, friends, or people in my neighborhood. A guy in my neighborhood died from it, but I really don't know details about him. A friend was in the ICU with it and pneumonia, he is home now. A coworker was hospitalized for a few days due to fever. He is fine now. Apparently a cousin has it and a few other family members. The family members in Kentucky live in assisted living so I'm not surprised they got it being communal living. They are in rehab but okay apparently. The rest of the people I know who got it described it as a bad cold/flu at the worst. Most described it as an annoying cold that they couldn't get rid of.
