Oval Closed Until at least June 7th For Some Reason

As of April 28th the number of deaths allegedly attributed to Corona virus in Minnesota is 286. The median age of the dead is 86 years old (90% over the age of 70) (see https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/situation.html#ageb1). 2/3 of the dead are in nursing homes and assisted living. The general population is not dying from this, the old and infirm are. We should protect the at risk groups, while the rest of us live our lives. The flu is a fact of life. In 2017 the flu/pneumonia was the 9th leading cause of death in Minnesota. 697 Minnesotans died from the flu in 2017.  According to the CDC 80,000 died from the flu the winter of 2017-2018. Recall we were not on government mandated lock down in 2017. The 286 dead represent 0.0049 percent of the 5.6 million Minnesota citizens. Does that sound like the pandemic you were made to fear?
There is little chance of outdoor transmission. We are permitted now to walk around outside, and permitted to walk around the grocery store.

Note Wisconsin held a primary election a few weeks ago. Half-a-million people in Wisconsin physically went to the polls. This was the largest congregation of people in the country in months. There was NO spike in disease transmission or deaths in Wisconsin (reports say 36 people out of half-a-million got sick or 0.0072%).

Despite all of that, the Roseville Oval will be closed until at least June 7th.

Dear Governor Walz,

The hardworking people of Minnesota can be trusted to earn an honest living — and protect ourselves and others from COVID-19 — without a statewide stay-home mandate.

This executive order is causing irreparable harm to our communities and our economy. Livelihoods have been lost, businesses have closed permanently, mental health has declined, important health care treatments and surgeries have been delayed, and hospitals are rapidly becoming insolvent.

The Minnesota Department of Health’s own COVID-19 model indicates that older people and those with underlying conditions are most at risk, and that the current stay-home order will not save any lives compared to adopting a modest reduction in contacts until the end of the epidemic.

Therefore, I am calling on you to end the current stay-home order for good when it expires on May 4th. State government must provide citizens, businesses, and workers with the necessary tools and guidelines to operate safely, but allow us to get back to work. Our families and communities depend on it!

Respectfully,

Your name
