If you’re keeping track of all the invasions of privacy and breaches of constitutional rights are taking place in the U.S., ostensibly in the name of slowing the spread of Covid-19, your list is about to get a little longer:

From the Washington Times:

“Unfortunately, we know some will still get together and schools have asked for help,” the Republican governor tweeted Tuesday. “[The Vermont Agency of Education] will direct schools to ask students or parents if they were part of multi-family gatherings and if the answer is yes, they’ll need to go remote for 14 days or 7 days and a test.”

Does that approach sound familiar?

Positively Orwellian.

Not if it’s allowed to keep happening.
