Protesters, anti-quarantine groups call for end to coronavirus closures

Growing unrest from coronavirus stay-at-home orders in place across the country have resulted in organized protests and the creation of anti-quarantine organizations across the nation.
On Monday, about 100 protesters crowded the Ohio statehouse as Gov. Mike DeWine (R) gave his daily coronavirus briefing, according to The Columbus Dispatch. They demanded an end to the state’s stay-at-home order, which the governor extended to May 1 earlier this month.
The protestors join Republican lawmakers in the state in pressuring the governor to reopen the economy.
“We need to get the economy open, even if that means social distancing of some sort for months to come,” State Sen. Andrew Brenner (R ), wrote in a Facebook post. “We can’t stay like this much longer, and the hundreds of thousands of Ohioans who’ve lost their jobs or the thousands of small business owners can’t keep doing this either, or their lives will be irreparably destroyed.”
Protests in the state came the same day President Trump received pushback from a number of governors after he claimed he has the full authority to reopen the country. Trump has been a proponent of reopening the country as soon as possible, saying several times "we can't have the cure be worse than the problem."
“It is the decision of the President, and for many good reasons. With that being said, the Administration and I are working closely with the Governors, and this will continue,” Trump tweeted Monday. “A decision by me, in conjunction with the Governors and input from others, will be made shortly!”
The Michigan Conservative Coalition and Michigan Freedom Fund are planning an in-vehicle protest at the statehouse Wednesday to demand an end to Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home order, which she recently extended to April 30 as the state continues to see some of the highest rates of infection in the nation.
The conservative organizations described Whitmer’s mitigation measures as "erratic, unilateral orders that threaten Michiganders' economic existence," according to the Lansing State Journal.
Michigan’s order is particularly aggressive, banning home visits between friends and the purchase of nonessential goods. U.S. Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.), who has teased a third-party presidential bid, has said Whitmer's orders "do little to combat COVID-19 but much to curb freedoms and escalate tensions. The governor should re-evaluate before she loses public support for more essential health and safety practices."
Many of @GovWhitmer’s latest measures do little to combat COVID-19 but much to curb freedoms and escalate tensions. The governor should re-evaluate before she loses public support for more essential health and safety practices.
