Lori Lightfoot Reveals New Lockdown Advisory — Orders Thanksgiving Plans Be Canceled

Chicago’s Lori Lightfoot has set another lockdown advisory in place, urging people to cancel their Thanksgiving plans due to the coronavirus, according to the Daily Wire.

Lightfoot shared the news on Twitter.

“A Stay-at-Home Advisory for Chicago will go into effect on Monday, November 16th at 6:00am.”

“This advisory calls on all Chicagoans to do the following:

– Stay home unless for essential reasons

– Stop having guests over—including family members you do not live with

– Avoid non-essential travel

– Cancel traditional Thanksgiving plans[.]”

More from The Daily Wire:

“If the possibility of 1,000 more people dying in the city in the next seven weeks doesn’t grab you by the throat as it did me when I started seeing that modeling, then there’s little we’re going to do to move you.”

“If we see you violating these rules in any way, we’re not gonna hesitate to take action,” she continued.

Lightfoot’s lockdown in March was particularly strict, forbidding even long outdoor jogs and bike rides. The mayor faced accusations of hypocrisy in April when news broke that she had violated her own stay-at-home orders to get her hair cut. When confronted by reporters about it, she said, “I am the public face of this city. I’m on national media and I’m out in the public eye. I take my personal hygiene very seriously. As I said, I felt like I needed to have a haircut. I’m not able to do that myself, so I got a haircut. You want to talk more about that?”

Lightfoot’s Thanksgiving regulations echoed a prediction of Dr. Anthony Fauci, who said last month that Americans might have to “bite the bullet” and cancel the holiday.
