Letter to the editor: Money doesn’t give second-home owners extra rights

No one’s rights should be challenged or infringed upon. Rules set by our state and local policy makers should be followed. But how do we know that a couple traveling from Florida or driving from Denver is quarantining for 14 days after their arrival at their second home in Summit County? Our government is not planning on taking precautionary measures like Europe and Asia. Not testing or screening or tracing. We’re opening up. Don’t those entitled folks who think that they are our “lifeblood” know that they are increasing our potential for contracting COVID-19 when they step into our public places. Don’t they care about our families? It’s understandable that some folks don’t get it for whatever reason. That’s always part of the equation and usually part of the problem. Why do folks loudly standing up for their rights neglect the rights of others. Money doesn’t entitle or give rights. That’s an offensive attitude.
