    And you still don't get it (and probably never will, regardless of how many relevant cases are cited) but that IS largely what the Constitution says. At least for a temporary amount of time (indeterminate) that States are authorized, through the 10th Amendment, to take whatever steps are reasonable to prevent the spread of an infectious disease. Again, read pages 49-51 of the most recent court case which addressed this issues: Devito v Wolf (link provided above) which discusses the 1st Amendment v 10th Amendment arguments and how it shakes down, for 100+ years of SCOTUS decisions. (Including the fact that SCOTUS basically endorsed the PA Supreme Court's decision in Wolf.)
