There have been some tough calls out there for those in charge during the COVID-19 pandemic. Is it OK to sit in your car and watch the ocean? Is it OK for Walmart to sell you seeds and maybe a baby seat? Is it OK to have “drive-by” birthday parties? No, no, and no, depending on where you live.
On Monday night, Hillsborough County’s Emergency Policy Group voted to implement a curfew in the Tampa, Florida area, but if your dog is used to being walked first thing in the morning or last thing before bed, it’s going to have to adjust its schedule.
Hillsboro County Florida enacted a curfew from 9 p.m. till 5 a.m. was specifically asked if people would be allowed to walk their dogs. said anybody who was out walking their dog during curfew would be ticketed and or arrested. Because walking your dog was non-essential.

Because coronavirus is more contagious at night?

Because the virus is especially active between the hours of 9pm and 5am. It stalks the streets at night looking for victims. Every knows that! 🙄 My God there are some morons out there running governments.

Not only is walking your dog nonessential, but WuFlu is now spread by vampires. Hence the need for a dusk to dawn curfew. pic.twitter.com/SPrRy7cgSU

We have a lot of elected leaders at all levels of government who are enjoying being tyrants. Americans need to hold all of accountable. This cannot be allowed to continue.

So arrest the dog walkers and release the criminals. Got it.

Ok how is walking your dog endangering anyone as long as you stay 6 feet or better away?

Why is this necessary? I'm guessing these petty tyrants find that it's much easier to police criminal activity if they just make everyone a criminal who can be arrested just for being outside. https://t.co/t7a6lZYkaz

Can I ask someone on this thread something? Why is Hilsboro County arresting people for walking their dogs meanwhile releasing 2nd degree murder felons? https://t.co/6T5ZhcvURZ

The same Hillsborough County that released an inmate only to have him back in jail for murder.. but walking dogs… https://t.co/Gpx6U5uj8Y

America works via the CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED. When our government goes overboard like this, we will refuse to consent, and our refusal will be widespread.
Be reasonable, we will work WITH you.
We are NOT subjects to be ruled.
We know how to rebel, don't test us. https://t.co/veC1Pb5I1x

I'd be at the pound rescuing a dog right now, if I lived there.

Someone needs to go out, walk their dog, take the ticket/arrest and head straight to court.

How exactly does this help to stop the spread or to flatten the curve?
