This is what happens when people want their “freedom”. Mandate masks again!

The nerve of some people to want their freedom. Dont they know the government gets to decide who gets freedom and when its given.

Last Tuesday, there were 263 new cases (up from 14 the previous day).

On Wednesday, there were 231 new cases.

On Thursday, there were 304 new cases.

On Friday, there were 199 new cases.

These are just the people who were tested at facilities who report.

Everyone could have received 4 free at home test kits by now. No one knows how many of these may have tested positive.

Masks are off. Let’s see what happens now.
