Summary of the audio:
Many have asked me lately if I intend to declare a lockdown.
I have been saying, not if I can help it.
But you could allow essential activities, proponents say.
No, I say, all activities are essential. If you adopt adequate safety measures, there is no need for lockdown. We all need to continue working.
However, many people in the civil service keep telling me I have to declare a lockdown.
So, in response to their insistent pleas, I have decided to declare a lockdown.
Look: I am signing the municipal executive order now.
It´s executive order number 539. Hereby made public.
“Lockdown in the city of Criciúma”.
But there is one detail: it’s lockdown without remuneration.
If you don´t want to come to work, that´s all right.
If you want to protect yourself, great.
You may stay home, but you will not receive wages.
It´s easy to demand a lockdown when your fridge is full and your wages are guaranteed.
So, I am hereby declaring a voluntary lockdown.
Let´s get back to work, folks. It´s much better.
