Rhode Island’s Pause For Covid-19 is Ineffective

  • Will these restrictions guidelines work? If so, what metrics are we tracking and how long is the timeline to expect results?
  • What can we expect in 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and 6 weeks from now?
  • Are your actions taking lower-income families into consideration for these restrictions? If not, what are you doing to support them during this time other than 600 dollar boost in SNAP?
  • What does contact tracing look like and where are the hot spots for infections?
  • Are gyms a place where COVID-19 is being spread? If not, why are they being restricted since they are unlikely to acquire any new members during a pandemic?
  • Are the grants that you gave going to have real-world results to bolster the negative effects of your two-week pause and extension on small businesses in Rhode Island that are bleeding out?
