As we head into the weekend, the challenging news is that public health officials seem determined to reimpose mask mandates. If they do so in your community or state, will you comply?
“Los Angeles County is reimposing an indoor mask mandate for all residents regardless of their vaccination status, county health officials said on Thursday,” according to National Review. [emphasis added]
“The decision to reimpose the mandate came after the number of coronavirus cases in the county topped 1,000 for six straight days, while 406 people are hospitalized with the illness, according to the local Fox 11. The county has a total population of over 10 million.
“The new mandate is set to take effect at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday.
“Many of the new infections are driven by the “Delta” variant of the coronavirus, which has caused widespread outbreaks in countries where vaccinations are sparse, such as India and Uganda. However, coronavirus vaccines available in the U.S. are considered to still offer protection against the new variant.”
