It Begins… Montana County Demands Citizens Wear Government-Issued Arm Bands to Shop at Grocery Stores

We thought this was a spoof.
It’s not.

A Montana county is mandating citizens to wear a pink wrist band to go shopping at grocery stores.
The band represents the person has quarantined for 14 days.

You know who else had armbands?

The Montana Daily Gazette reported:

In what might be one of the most over-the-top and draconian responses to coronavirus yet seen in Montana, Valley County is mandating that people wear government-issued pink arm bands in under to purchase products inside of stores. The measure, enforced by the Valley County Health Department, insists that store-owners keep customers out unless they have the pink arm-bands, which denote the customer has been in the area more than 14 days and submitted to quarantine protocol.

According to the flier produced by the Valley County Health Department, out-of-towners who lack the government-issued armbands will be prohibited from stores and residents are notified to call law enforcement if they do not comply.

The health department even issued a script to warn customers to flee, saying, “You are violating our Governor’s and Valley County’s Health Officer’s orders. I am happy to shop for you with curbside delivery. I will get the items for you and bring them to your car. If you don’t cooperate, you will force me to call law enforcement.”

Here’s a copy of the flyer.
