The coronavirus pandemic has naturally resulted in restrictions on our daily routines. COVID-19 is highly contagious, so it makes sense that the federal and state governments are urging citizens to stay home as much as possible. But some governors may be taking things a measure too far.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear raised eyebrows last week when he announced that officials would be recording the license plate numbers of people who decided to participate in drive-through communion on Easter Sunday. Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul excoriated the governor for clearly abusing his authority.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order this weekend to extend the state's shelter-in-place order until May 1 and banned certain gardening activities and everyday purchases. Lawmakers like Speaker of the Michigan House Lee Chatfield was one of many people confused by Whitmer's definition of "essential." Lawn care is banned, as well as the purchasing of gardening tools and baby car seats. But buying marijuana is allowed.
