    The eastern state of Saxony, where hospitals have been struggling to cope with one of the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the country, has confirmed plans to hold quarantine breakers in a fenced off section of a refugee camp. Saxony is set to construct the centre next week. The regional state has stressed that the facility will only be used for people who have repeatedly broken the rules around quarantine even after facing financial penalties. Three further states - Baden-Württemberg, Brandenburg and Schleswig-Holstein - have also either already created such facilities or are in the process of doing so, a report...

    Germans who repeatedly refuse to quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19 will be held in detention centers — and even under police guard, according to reports. Officials in the state of Saxony — which is experiencing one of the worst outbreaks in the European nation — have already approved plans to hold quarantine-breakers in a fenced-off section of a refugee camp, the Telegraph said. Another state, Brandenburg, also plans to use a section of a refugee camp.

    A racing pigeon from Alabama has survived an 8,000-mile odyssey to Australia, where it was named Joe after the president-elect – but authorities plan to kill the bird because it’s a quarantine risk, according to a report. Melbourne resident Kevin Celli-Bird said he discovered the exhausted bird in his backyard on Dec. 26 after it had disappeared from a race in Oregon on Oct. 29, The Associated Press reported.

    “We are writing this letter to request that a federal investigation be commenced and/or expedited regarding the scientific debate on major policy decisions during the COVID-19 crisis. In the course of our work, we have identified issues of a potentially criminal nature and believe this investigation necessary to ensure the interests of the public have been properly represented by those promoting certain pandemic policies,” the 40-page report begins. The report posits that lockdowns originated “at the order of Xi Jinping” and “were propagated into global policy by the World Health Organization with little analysis or logic.” It also attacks the...

    The WTTC President and CEO said in a statement, released on the organization’s website earlier this week, that although the World Travel and Tourism Council supports measures to halt the spread of COVID-19, she does think that travel-related quarantines that are not 100% necessary should be removed. The WTTC president and CEO, Gloria Guevara, said in the statement that requiring travelers and holidaymakers to undergo a PCR test should be more than enough. A negative test should act as proof of safe travel: “Requiring inbound travelers and holidaymakers to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 pre-departure test should ensure safe...

    Professor Neil Ferguson, an epidemiologist who played a key role in convincing the British government to adopt lockdowns, revealed that the country’s lockdowns were meant to emulate those carried out by the Chinese Communist Party – modeled to strip civil liberties and exert authoritarian control over citizens. In Ferguson’s recent interview with The Times, he revealed that lockdowns he championed as part of Britain’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) Board, were rooted in those carried out by the Chinese Communist Party. Dubbed “Professor Lockdown” by many for his contributions to swaying the British government to adopt stringent lockdown measures,...

    Gladys Berejiklian has introduced coronavirus restrictions across greater Sydney as the state records 30 new coronavirus cases, prompting another wave of border restrictions and throwing Christmas plans into disarray. The New South Wales premier said the new restrictions were introduced to prevent the virus from seeding in other areas of Sydney, after the list of exposure sites grew overnight to include a number of restaurants in the eastern suburbs and a cafe in Forster on the mid north coast.

    Now that the media is looking for tips and clues, how about this one? Groot (Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot) and Fatass (Illinois Governor J. B. "Jabba" Pritzker) have shut down restaurants and bars, but opened up the airport bars full-throttle. I traveled in to Midway a couple of days ago, the bars that line the aisle down Concourse B were PACKED with maskless drinkers eating and drinking. I counted 70 people, all indoors, all dining, all drinking (did I mention indoors?) and not a one with a mask on. This is so much Groot's "For thee! Not for me!" approach....

    The quality of life here has dwindled, and mental health has taken a hit. I had to start seeing a therapist because every other coping outlet has been eliminated.It’s more than eight months after the March 20, 2020 lockdown orders Gov. Gavin Newson placed on California. Most of the state is in a lockdown again, and we are now subject to a curfew, although no one can explain how that is going to “slow the spread.” Every freedom that I enjoy feels impeded upon, and simple outings can lead to a storm of frustration as I feel like everyone around...

Apples • Shelf life: 2 weeks to 6 months The apples we eat in spring and summer were often harvested in cooler weather. That's because they're a fruit that can stay fresh and crisp for as long as six months if they're stored in a cold, dark place (such as a root cellar in winter). If they're kept in a fruit bowl at room temperature, they'll generally remain at their best for at least two weeks, sometimes as long as a month.</p>

The agency reportedly hopes the change will inspire more people to comply with the guidelines. In a statement provided to Fox News, an agency spokesperson said no such changes had been finalized.

    Sources familiar with agency staffing said more than 130 Secret Service officers are quarantining either due to testing positive for COVID-19 or close contact with infected co-workers, The Washington Post reports. The outbreak has reached about 10 percent of the agency's core security team. "Being down more than 100 officers is very problematic," a former senior Secret Service supervisor told The Washington Post. "That does not bode well for White House Security." The Trump campaign made 10 stops between Nov. 2 and Nov. 3, the last two days of the election. The stops Nov. 2 required five separate groups, each...

    Her Activities Are ‘Essential’ Through her chief of staff, Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed her trip to a political rally constituted ‘essential travel,’ which therefore exempted her and her staff from her own quarantine order. Talk about the D.C. Swamp: Mere days after issuing a revised order regarding quarantines after travel to coronavirus “hot spots,” the mayor of the nation’s capital openly ignored the rules she established.While many will decry Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) for violating the travel restrictions, they shouldn’t feel surprised by her double standards. After all, Bowser and the Washington City Council have compelled D.C. residents with...

    With the Garden State tightening restrictions on indoor dining in response to recent spikes in COVID-19 cases, many are wondering if Philadelphia will be doing the same. The warning bells are being sounded by Pennsylvania’s health officials. “We are now seeing the highest case counts of the COVID-19 pandemic that we have seen since the beginning,” said Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine. --SNIP-- The protests, celebrations and demonstrations over the election and vote tallying are also a concern.

    The state Constitution says emergency proclamations expire after 60 days, but Hawaii now is in its eighth month of lockdown. Groups nationwide have filed lawsuits against the coronavirus emergency orders declared by their governors. Some have been successful. But what about Hawaii, whose governor just yesterday extended his state-of-emergency proclamation by another month, till the end of November? Can Hawaii’s seemingly interminable state lockdown, first ordered in March, ever be overturned in court? The Grassroot Institute webinar held Friday, Oct. 23, discussed the trends of lawsuits across the nation and whether they offer any hope for Hawaii. Our special guests...

    Dear Governor Pritzker, Because of you, restaurants are closing their doors permanently because they cannot survive another shut down. Because of you more homes will be foreclosed. More cars repossessed. More college funds drained. Hopes and dreams lost as we remain powerless in your hands. Because of you, another teen suicide was reported just yesterday because teens literally cannot handle the isolation. Do you know of these suicides? Or do you know and simply choose not to report on these because it doesn’t fit your political agenda? People like you, are why people like me, hate politics. It is never...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKRN) — Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear released a statement Sunday to the state saying that he and his family are quarantining out of an abundance of caution after being “potentially exposed to a person with COVID-19 late Saturday afternoon.” According to the Governor’s statement, a member of Beshear’s security detail drove the Beshear family on Saturday and learned of a positive COVID-19 test later in the day. The Beshear family was reportedly not in contact with anyone else following exposure
