Town Border Opening?
By Glen O'Riley
An open town meeting is to be held on Monday to discuss whether Perrel should end its town-wide quarantine.
After making the difficult but courageous decision to close our towns borders, the decision will be made whether to open them again.
For fifteen weeks the town borders have effectively been closed to every human. Any deliveries to places like the Post Office and Superway have been disinfected and ritually cleansed.
The Council reiterated that the good work of volunteers and diligence in citizens to stay in Perrel has kept the whole town safe.
“Composure and reason are imperative in troubled times like this,” Councillor Roberts told us, “We must not take our health or our community for granted.”
Opponents have pointed out that Perrel has had zero cases of the illness. National school, work and other lockdowns are set to be lifted soon, too.
“We’ve kept schools going,” Maudlin Babcock, mother of two, pointed out, “and it would be nice to visit family or go caravanning for the summer holidays.”
The Council’s decision will be announced on Tuesday night.
