The restrictions themselves are not Orwellian. What seems Orwellian to me are people who are calling Trump a dictator, authoritarian, fascist, etc. while forcing Americans to cancel graduations, funerals, weddings, and now Thanksgiving family gatherings.
And it seems even more Orwellian when those same people do not abide by the rules they impose on others.
Hypocritical behavior (do as I say and not as I do) is unacceptable - it’s a failure of leadership and it sucks.
But certainly you recognize that social measures in the midst of an acute viral outbreak is not the same as a general, authoritarian approach to governance.
