The two nurses wore scrubs and face masks. Then, they stood directly in front of the protesters’ cars. Colorado has reported 9,730 cases of COVID-19, 1,813 people hospitalized, and 422 deaths Monday morning, according to the federal COVID web site. Correspond these numbers with its neighboring state, Kansas, which has with 1,850 cases and 92 deaths, according to KWCH.com.
The protesters were organized by an ultra-conservative group called Operation Gridlock, who actively support Donald Trump. The admiration is mutual. Their demonstrations were meant to spread across the country and force business to reopen.
The demonstrators waved flags in support of the president. Few of them wore face masks and none appeared to be respecting the six-foot distancing rule. They wore tee-shirts that showed they blamed China and the media for exaggerating the numbers. The protesters accused the government of “tyranny.”
There were hundreds of protestors at Colorado’s state capitol in Denver on Sunday. They interfered with traffic, and they honked their horns. One woman protesting yelled, according to the Denver State.com site:
‘You go to work, why can’t I go to work?’
Colorado Governor Jared Polis said government officials will follow “what to expect as the economy opens.” The governor’s mandate to shelter in place ends at the end of May unless he extends it. Polis said:
‘As we move towards opening things, we have to be able to sustain the social distancing, and that means doing it in a different way because we want to make sure we don’t exceed the hospital bed capacity.’
Other protesters blocked the Colorado highway that is the “HAZMAT route:”
‘”Wish we had a better solution. Vehs cycling, loading and unloading on the highway. This is The HazMat route across the divide. Semi’s carry fuels, chlorine, ammonia..etc and can’t get through. Gov Polis promised the mountains will be there next fall.” Believe him.’
