Rochester, NY – Residents of East Rochester awoke to a startling discovery Saturday morning when they found that their town had been encased in a giant dome overnight.
Local authorities urged the public not to panic and said that this extreme measure was taken to protect residents from the coronavirus pandemic.
“Until recently, our beautiful town had been spared from the virus,” a town official said, “now that we have confirmed cases in the area, drastic measures must be taken to mitigate the spread.”
Residents were able to voice their concerns about the new dome using a popular video conferencing app. Cost was a major issue for many but the officials were prepared.
“By not providing children with proper transportation to school, we were able to save up enough money to completely cover the cost of the dome.” One official said.
“Rest assured knowing your children will never have to brave inclement weather again because East Rochester will never experience weather again, thanks to this wonderful dome.”
