Why don’t republicans issue a stay at home order in their states?

CNN)Millions of Californians may soon find themselves under a regional stay-at-home order once again under new restrictions announced Thursday by California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

The new stay-at-home order will take hold in regions where hospitals are feeling the squeeze on capacity to treat the incoming surge of Covid-19 patients. A strict stay-at home order will go into effect 48 hours after hospital intensive care unit capacity drops below 15% in one of five regions the state is divided into: Northern California, Bay Area, Greater Sacramento, San Joaquin Valley and Southern California.

    Because Republicans respect the Constitution.  California is one of the stupidest states out there.  Have you ever heard how people from California talk.

    Because it's not needed as Gavin Newsom, that LA supervisor, and the LA mayor have shown by saying one thing and doing something else.

    You're not allowed to tell a republican what to do with their bodies. That privilege is reserved for republican to tell women what they can do with their bodies.

    It could be because the authorities command that you stay at home but if you need to protest and riot you are excused because protesting and rioting is more important than ending this pandemic.

    gOv newsom did not follow his own stay at home order and there have been states that have issued a stay at home order or at least limited businesses to certain times.

    Los Angeles alone reported over 7,000 new cases in ONE day this week.... how many "republican states" monthly totals do you need to combine to get close to that number?....

    Meanwhile, Newsom's orders STILL clearly state that they do NOT apply to "acts of protest"... which is why a good number of police agencies will refuse to enforce them... Too many are already being sued by people fined for violating restrictions in May and June while mayors ordered them not to cite mass protests and large indoor gatherings for 'social justice'....
