A growing number of protests are being staged across the U.S. to oppose stay-at-home orders amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In places like Oklahoma, Texas and Virginia, small-government groups, supporters of President Donald Trump, anti-vaccine advocates and others have united behind a deep suspicion of efforts to shut down daily life to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

As their frustration grows, they’ve started to openly defy the social distancing rules to put pressure on governors to ease them.

Some of the protests have been small events, promoted via recently created Facebook groups. Others are backed by groups with ties to Trump.
