Same with its meat packing plants.

When you don't like someone you don't tell them they are going to die.

Why does Nebraska hate its people?

Storage facilities with windows.

This is so the Deplorables don't surround the nursing homes with pitchforks and torches and burn the disease carriers to the ground, right?

It's a pattern of obfuscation:

Infection rates were climbing at Nebraska meatpacking plants. Then health officials stopped reporting the numbers.

In a change initiated last week, Gov. Pete Ricketts (R) announced at a news conference that state health officials would no longer share figures about how many workers have been infected at each plant. The big companies weren't sharing numbers either, creating a silence that leaves workers, their families and the rest of the public blind to the severity of the crisis at each plant.

"health officials would no longer share figures about how many workers have been infected at each plant."

Deplorables think that's a good idea.

The "teach the controversy" crowd now prefers government enforced ignorance.
Why?
Because The Economy.

Not knowing puts people at risk. It is the only reason I do not want to venture out much myself.

I do not know if the virus is in the area. So I have to assume everyone has it.

If I knew where the virus was I would know exactly what to do.

I'm in the same boat. I know we have local cases but no idea how many or where. Or how big "local" is.

I guess that's a no from them.

Too bad, I was looking forward to the logical pretzels and back flips required to wipe the egg of their faces on this one.

We prefer to let you stew in your ragepit pondering your own ignorance.

I'm not sure what Jeff should find more embarrassing.

His ham-fisted approach to trolling or the fact Gracie and Goat are flagging him newsworthy.

So no, you have no answer to a legit and important question.

Guess you were never all that serious about the who Chy-Nuh thing to begin with, were you?

Or the fact that they're still floating around but refusing to comment as if that's some sort of punishment.
