Subject: NEWS TIP: The trap Gov. DeWine has put us in.
I find troubling that Governor Dewine is now using case counts (including any kind of positive test and "probables") as his metric to keep us under his restrictions. I expect our news reporters to inform their audience about the trap Gov. DeWine has put us in.
Wearing masks impairs on fundamental rights:
Our form of government allows a state to only impair on fundamental rights under strict scrutiny guidelines. That is why the Ohio Legislators enacted Ohio SB 22 even after Gov. Dewine's veto.
Legislators are familiar with the strict scrutiny standard. The state cannot infringe on our fundamental liberties unless the government proves that their infringement is the least restrictive way to achieve a justified goal. The Governor is basing policy by testing people who have no symptoms; this is unprecedented.
The natural need to participate in true human interaction (including facial expressions) has be taken from us with no science supporting that mask mandates are justified. Social distancing is being forced on those who want to exercise our freedom of assembly.
Before any of our fundamental liberties are impaired, we insist that our legislators conduct proper hearings challenging those who push fear and control. The public demands proof: what is the measurable health goal of any mandate? How is it proven that the goal is achieved by the mandate? How is it proven that each mandate is the least restrictive way to achieve the goal?

Kathryn writes: March. 12, 2021 (publisher of Understanding Ohio COVID-19 Data): "This week's probables by county. As a reminder, these are in the now, all-important cases/100,000. The first column is the total cases/100,000 that ODH is reporting, the second column are the probable cases/100,000.

March 22, 2021. Data analyst, Kathryn Huwig explains how we are already below 50 cases per 100,000 if we count the way the CDC expects the usual counts. Count only a 7 day period and count only those who are sick with symptoms.

March 11, 2021: Counting positive antigen tests means we will never get below Gov. Dewine's 50 cases per 100,000 population, with the huge number of tests Ohio is giving. The FDA instructed us on November 3, 2020 that antigen rapid detection tests are not supposed to be used how Ohio ODH is using them.
