State of New York to create first COVID-19 containment camp

When talking to my family about this I tried to illustrate the absurdity of the panic surrounding COVID-19. I predicted to them that camps would be set up to separate people from the general population. Low and behold my exaggeration came true today!

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said New York would establish a “containment area” in New Rochelle to control the spread of a novel coronavirus in the Westchester County suburb at the center of the outbreak in the state.

The area would close facilities—including schools—within one mile of the center of the outbreak for two weeks, starting Thursday, state officials said. The containment step would close “major gathering places” and facilities, such as temples in the area, the governor said, although individuals would still be free to walk around.
