    a couple of things. I never heard any mention of the Pearson EO, but I didn’t listen past when you started talking about school closure, However Kemps EO suspends all local orders, so for the next 10 days (if he doesn’t renew it) are all null anyway. Also the EO today only Deputized Sheriffs and their deputies to enforce the order not all LE so only State Police and Sheriffs can enforce this time. The order also allows exercise as an essential activity as long as the 6′ minimum is met in the hand out on the EO it is also noted that you can visit state parks, play golf and other sports.
