It’s time to tamp down on the conspiracy theorists.
The National Guard is being employed by the Governors to conduct a number of COVID-19 missions. The soldiers and airmen are delivering food and medical supplies, they are starting to look at alternate locations for additional hospital capacity, they are ensuring test kits get to the right place and time.
There is no plan for a national shutdown - is it possible in the future? Sure, but as of now, it’s not being considered.
The National Guard isn’t enforcing martial law, it hasn’t been declared by any of the Governors or the President.
So if you see a Guardsman/woman on the street, tell them Thanks while maintaining your social distancing! They are first responders just like police, fire fighters, doctors and nurses.
