Whole USA city now in lockdown
#1
Wow.  I haven't been thru Gallup in a long while.  It is somewhat like an oasis in the desert, and on a major east-west highway between Texas and California.

All roads into a New Mexico city are closed over coronavirus

CBS NewsMay 2, 2020

"New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham invoked the state's Riot Control Act on Friday to essentially lock down the city of Gallup after its mayor requested that she do so on Thursday. Under the act, all roads leading into Gallup are now closed off "to mitigate the uninhibited spread of COVID-19 in that city."


"Effective at 12 p.m., May 1, all roads into Gallup are closed. Businesses in the city of Gallup will close from 5 p.m. through 8 a.m. Vehicles may only have a maximum of two individuals. Residents of the city should remain at home except for emergency outings and those essential for health, safety and welfare," Grisham's office said in a press release.

Gallup, a city of nearly 22,000 people about 100 miles west of Albuquerque, has been particularly affected by the coronavirus. As of Friday, McKinley County, where Gallup is located, had 1,027 confirmed cases and 19 deaths, according to the New Mexico Department of Health. The county now has the highest number of cases in all of New Mexico, which has 3,411 cases in total. ..."

Sounds like a plot twist from a thriller science fiction novel.
I dream of an America where a chicken can cross the road without having it's motives questioned.
