Your folks are residents so I guess harder to deny them the right to return. The whole thing was hastily put together and is meant to be temporary and will take time to fine tune and adjust if the government(s) can be bothered for something they hope will not last much longer. That is why the judge let is stand. Of course if it is extended if not necessary, someone with a more-solid case (such as your example of shift vs. incoming worker) could get the judiciary to force the government(s) to fine tune.dolfan1980 wrote: ↑ My folks can come here then go back and quarantine, but I cannot go there even if I am willing and have a plan to quarantine. They need to shut down non-essential travel or not, but it’s not currently treating everyone equally. Similarly someone entering for work doesn’t need to quarantine, but someone returning from shift does need to.
I’m not opposed to restrictions and I think they have done so well because of them, but I do think there are some aspects that could be administered differently with the same successful results.

It's extremely concerning that not only are people so quick to part with their rights during this pandemic, but they actually criticize people who choose to defend them, or even just question when certain measure may be a bit overreaching.

Agreed. Most with some intelligence expect things to be somewhat different during this. Questioning just how different and having a discussion on what an appropriate limit is or should be is healthy. Gaining a different point of view that is well thought out is not a waste, even if you don't agree.
