So; who to believe? About which?
I think I wouldn't worry about it, since between Governors declaring public health emergency quarantines, but not enforcing them, and nurses deciding to ignore Governors, and judges deciding their job is to judge science, not law.... you're not getting any of the choices in here, anyhow.
Crazy, yes? This is some of the damage caused by fear-panic in plagues.
Current results; the State Troopers in Maine are no longer sure if they should obey the Governor's orders; or wait for court clarification. Citizens - have no idea who to listen to.
There is a saying in all the armies I can check on; so old it defies attribution; "Order, counter-order, disorder." Chaos is just around the corner; when people do not know who to follow or who to trust.
The business world has a similar Law: "Even a bad decision is better than no decision." A little more subtle, but proven true repeatedly. Make a bad decision? You may find that out quickly, and change direction. No decision? The Universe will decide for you, and you probably won't like it.
So who's in charge here?
Yep, I don't know either.
