Mayor Gabe Brown:

"Listen up dipshits and sensible people. I might not have the best bedside manor. I might not put you at ease like the Governor does, but I don’t care. You need to realize that this is a serious ordeal. In fact, it’s a big f**cking deal. Stay at home.

I didn’t give you information to induce panic. I gave you information, so that you’d be informed."

IIRC, Dallas, Houston, & Wacko are also going SIP.  Dunno about the exceptions.

Legal experts say a U.S. president has quite limited power to order citizens back to their places of employment, or cities to reopen government buildings, transportation, or local businesses. Here is why.

What does the Constitution say about who makes decisions about public welfare?

The United States is a federalist system, meaning power is shared between a national and state governments.

Under the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, state governments have power to police citizens and regulate public welfare. In the country’s early years, it was up to state and local authorities to lead the response to the yellow fever epidemic, not the federal government.

UK’s Home Office warned that people who continue to flout coronavirus lockdown rules in England will be breaking the law and could be arrested by police.

Those who ignore tougher restrictions on movement could be hit with a £60 (about €66) fine initially and another for £120 (€132) for a second offence.

Officers were given the power to enforce rules on staying at home and avoiding non-essential travel as of 1pm today.

They can order members of the public to go home, leave an area, have the power to disperse a group, using “reasonable force, if necessary”.

Police can also take steps to make sure parents are stopping their children from breaking the rules.
