OrilliaMatters welcomes letters to the editor at dave@orilliamatters.com. This letter is in regard to COVID in the province.
********************
We are badly losing the battle with COVID-19. And we never stood a chance by asking instead of enforcing. If that is not understood by now it never will be.

Our leaders' biggest failing was not enforcing travel bans between regions. COVID cannot travel on its own. It must be confined and aggressively dealt with in hotspots.

No ID, No Entry, No Service. Region hoppers must understand in no uncertain terms that they will not be accommodated outside of their own regions. They need to understand how many have died needlessly already and limit further unnecessary deaths. 

Our parents and grandparents were forced to go to war. Staying home is not too much to ask of ourselves.
