As I asked at first, do you know this from legal precedence UKWP, or that's just how you read it? Obviously you THINK that's what it means, and I understood your view from the start. I'm not sure that is what it really means though. And your "read it till you understand" snark indicates you're just being arrogant and stubborn. You still refuse to answer my question. How do…

Oh my goodness, I believe it is up to the person whether they wear short or long sleeves based on what temperature is in the room. Some news outlets will do just about anything to stir up identity politics. With the many very difficult issues we have in this country, this one doesn't pass the "smell test".

Thanks for all of that but go back and read the phrase "lawfully in his possession" and keep reading it until you understand it. It's in the middle of your own post. The reason that phrase is in there is to distinguish between property that you can use force to protect: that which is "lawfully in his possession" and that which you cannot use force to protect: that which is not lawfully in his…

This is due to the outbreak of a respiratory virus among youngsters in the region

 

Children under the age of 12 are restricted from visiting Blessing Hospital patients until further notice due to the outbreak of a respiratory virus among youngsters in the region.  The outbreak hit hard over the holiday weekend with more than 70 children presenting to the Blessing Emergency Center with breathing difficulties and seven being admitted for treatment of the as-yet-unidentified virus.

Blessing Hospital is working with the Illinois Department of Public Health to identify the virus affecting area children.  Robert Merrick, MD, epidemiologist, Blessing Hospital, says it could be the same virus that hit St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri, last week.  That outbreak was caused by HEV68, a respiratory infection that affects mainly children.

 “We are restricting children under age 12 from visiting Blessing Hospital patients until further notice to reduce the risk of contracting and spreading the virus for all involved, the children who would be visiting and our patients,” Dr. Merrick said.

Parents and guardians of children under age 12 should not bring those youngsters with them to Blessing Hospital to visit a patient until further notice.  Blessing staff will assess the situation daily and announce when the visiting restriction for children under the age of 12 is lifted.
