Mask Mandates

OGFOGF Posts: 1,865 Captain
Anybody living in an area that is mandating masks because of the delta variant?

I think if the CDC mandates vaccinated people to wear masks it is a game changer.

Currently all sides agree no masks for the vaccinated. I am hopeful it will stay that way but who knows. 

The lack of a federal vaccination plan is really impacting us getting back to normal.

    Unless DeSantis changes his mind and I doubt that, nobody in Florida will have a mask mandate. Local municipalities have no ability to pass any Covid restrictions. Florida recommends those without the vaccine wear a mask. 

    I am waiting to see if any businesses start imposing mask rules again to enter.

    And chemical castration for all sex offenders?

    Why would I wear a mask now or in the future if I didn't wear one in the past?  Can't find a rock to hide under.  I had to work through this whole charade.  If you have health issues you need to wear one, let the people decide.  Don't think the idiots who are saying we need em have a clue.

    I ain't joking about chemical castration for sex offenders, personally real castration for those SOBs would be fine by me.

    I read this from a local news source. 

    "Governor Ron DeSantis says he will not mandate masks for children in school in the state of Florida.

    However, the decision will ultimately rely on individual school districts."

    School districts cannot mandate masks is your understanding?

    What cognitive dissonance gymnastics did you go through to connect that with a mandated vaccine?

    Maybe if you can explain the connection, I can try and pick a dog in the fight.

    Give it a shot.

    Feel free to use letters connected in groups that when examined as a whole express a thought.

    The law passed by the legislature gave him the power to invalidate local emergency mandates and stop any local municipality from implementlng any new emergency orders. The law also included language about school closure for an extended period requiring certain notices and legislative approval, which will require in person classes. I did not see where mask requirements in schools was addressed since it is not an emergency rule by a local municipality. There was language about safety of teachers and students. DeSantis has stated if local school districts try to implement mask mandates, the legislature will pass a legislation banning them without state approval. The fed may also get involved at some point. The fed could enforce a mask mandate by tying it to federal funds. That would likely result in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of such a law. School Districts are not local municipalities and are not implementing emergency orders. 

    Boiled down, schools districts can, currently, impose a mask mandate. If they do, DeSantis is likely going after them with executive orders and legislation to stop any mandates. I am sure there will end in the courts at some point if a school district decides to fight the issue. 

    I agree with Bimini that I think mask mandates are done. I expect you may see vaccine mandates in schools before this is over. Either at the federal or local district level. 

    I believe we are at a point that we need to try and get back to normal as closely as possible and let each person make their own decision. There is still risk, but I do not believe it will be as bad as it was last year. But, I guess come September/October we will know one way or the other.

    This might be a politicaly incorrect thing to post. 
    Ferris might ban me.

    But when you add up all the violence an shootings in major cities then add on all the fenatal coming in which has drastically increased this year I only wonder how that matches to COVID-19 

    I did get the shot but if the idiots don’t it’s there choice it’s time to measure the deaths compared to others 

    Do not give me c ra p please on my opinion

    I was at my Doctors today and I asked her again about her getting the shots because 3 months ago she said no way.
    Today she told me I got one but I'm not gonna get the other one..screw that.

    I'm confused, perhaps you can explain the connection between the pandemic and inflation?

    He has no facts or ability to discuss any subject seriously so he either makes jokes or tries to change the subject. Don't ever expect him to explain anything coherently.
