Over the last few days and weeks we’ve seen plenty of facepalm-worthy examples of new rules and regulations from government officials in certain states, and this one in Ohio has gotten some attention:
#BREAKING: Parades featuring vehicles only, for birthdays for example, do not fall within the guidelines of the state stay-at-home order and should be discontinued immediately, public health Commissioner Jeff Cooper said. #coronavirus #COVID-19 https://t.co/GGJ2DaZafY pic.twitter.com/CfdWjkZAjK

Drive-by birthday parties are now a no-no in that area?
I’m starting to get the sneaking suspicion that this is about more than a virus idk https://t.co/4o97ThIVqT

Why just crush the virus, when you can crush people’s spirits, too, amirite? https://t.co/ZRTVmCieQc

Let’s go to Dayton, Ohio where the health commissioner has seen enough birthday car parades. Jeff’s going to take an L on this one. https://t.co/yO120Rn30m
