Our leaders need to act now

Dear editor,

It is my intention to ask why the governor has not ordered a full and inevitable social shutdown. Partial measures like closing schools and limiting social gatherings are inadequate. People are lulled into complacency by false case numbers which is a flawed figure due to the paucity of testing.
Stores, bars, casinos, and numerous other establishments remain open and woefully unable to meet social distancing or sanitation standards.
The disease continues to grow undetected while the brief and elusive window for meaningful containment is almost over.
I encourage the governor to do what needs to be done. Order a complete shutdown.
