Informal social gatherings -- including Thanksgiving dinner -- are targeted
In case you missed it on Friday the 13, the rumors you've been seeing on social media are true.

I've already directed the superintendent of state police to begin to work with local law enforcement to legally enforce the informal social gathering orders.
All this, despite the fact that many people have pointed out that some of her policies lack scientific foundation. All her policies lack transparency, as she is refusing to honor any public records requests made of her COVID council.
