May 25, 2020 debate and opinion question
Right now much of the world, states within the United States, North Carolinians, and those of us here along the Carteret County NC beaches are grappling with the decision to either reopen states to allow for the economy to heal and for prosperity to once again flourish, or to maintain strict closure of most businesses and events to prevent the Coronavirus to spread further.
The intense debate is even shaping national and state politics, along with fracturing relations between family members and friends. Not surprisingly, the entire debate seems centered around which political ideology you belong to.
Today’s debate is asking people, if after the busy Memorial Day weekend in which Carteret County saw a substantial increase in the population along with more businesses being open, if you are a “keep NC and the county closed” person and there is not a significant rebound of Coronavirus infections, will you concede that it is now OK to reopen all businesses while encouraging people to wear masks and adhere to social distancing?
If you are someone from the “reopen NC now” crowd, if there is a major increase in Coronavirus infections and new deaths after the Memorial Day 2020 holiday, will you now concede that it is best to keep everything closed?
