Rhode Island has taken it to a new extreme, by having law enforcement officers stopping cars and knocking on doors, in hopes of slowing the spread of the coronavirus.
The Gov. of Rhode Island, Gina Raimondo, said at a news conference Friday, “Right now, we have pinpointed risk that we need to address, and we need to be very serious and that risk is called New York City”
This will be going into affect starting Saturday; Rhode Island law enforcement and national guard will be going “Door-to-Door”, asking people if they have been to New York and getting their contact information.
Police have already started monitoring highways and pulling over people with New York license plates and asking them questions.
