CDC eases mask wearing restrictions, what that means for you

May 13, 2021

The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday that fully vaccinated people can resume indoors and outdoors activities without wearing a masks or distancing, regardless of the size of the gathering.

“If you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing things you stopped doing because of the pandemic,” said CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky. “We have all longed for this moment when we can get back to some sense of normalcy.”

However, there are a few caveats. All people are still required to wear a mask while on public transportation and while at medical facilities.

In addition, state and local governments can continue to require mask wearing, as can local businesses.

The new policy was based on scientific studies from Israel and the United States on vaccinated people.

It means nothing as long as Dictator Newsom is still sending out his stormtroppers to harass, fine, close down, take away licenses and otherwise kill small businesses. Recall!!!!

Most reasonable people knew this 6 months ago. It would be nice if the so called scientists at CDC and Fauchi started following the science


slocorruptionhater

And you are a scientist?


sloweb

Yes

Irrelevant point corruption hater,


I’m not an astronaut and I’m certain you can’t breath on the moon without gear. Maybe Bob Dylan said it best, “don’t need a weatherman to tell you which way the wind is blowing.”

You should learn about the “appeal to authority” fallacy. It will help you to prepare better arguments.

Thanks Dr Jon. Tell that scientific community who’s the smarter one here. I guess you like getting and spreading the flu too. Odd how flu rates correlate with masks, but I’m no Dr and dont claim to be.

Flu rates also correlate with social distancing and school closures. It’s not necessarily masks that are reducing the rate of flu – there are plenty of other variables to consider.

Follow the Money,

The stores that remove the Mask signs, get my Money!

Time to follow the science grocery stores….


derasmus

And you SLODOCO

I don’t begrudge the grocery stores for doing what the State tells them they must do. They have a lot to lose (legally & monetarily) if the State decides to come after them. Lot more to lose than the You-are-not-gonna-tell-me-what-to-do rebel warriors.

You might note that while they have mask signs posted, enforcement is negligible or non-existent. A good compromise.

“No shoes, no shirt…” applied to masks applies here. With private business, if you don’t like it shop someplace else I suppose. Perhaps market forces will correct silly rules?


Rambunctious

Is fear of government our future now?….that’s very sad….


Rambunctious

Because the state is always right?….pushing back on ridiculous edicts from the state is the American way….rolling over is not….question authority…always question authority….


sloweb

Rambunctious – that is pretty brave of you to demand someone else to risk their freedom and money for your beliefs.
