The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recently updated its guidelines, saying that fully vaccinated people can safely move about outdoors without wearing a mask. Meanwhile, almost the entire country has been doing just that throughout the past year.
“Fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask outdoors, except in certain crowded settings and venues,” the CDC said in an update posted on April 27.
The messaging on both masking and vaccinations from the CDC as well as the Biden Administration has been consistently inconsistent, and nothing else.
Restaurants with outdoor seating have been allowed to operate even in places like California at this point. For those of you who have never been to a restaurant before, it’s sort of a requirement to remove any facial coverings in order to, well, eat. So, at what point where we supposed to assume that being socially distant while outdoors presented any immediate danger?
Meanwhile, President Joe Biden and his advisors often brag about the high levels of vaccinations against COVID-19. Vaccines, we’ve been reliably told, dramatically reduce the likelihood of both carrying and succumbing to the virus. So, why is Biden wearing a mask on Zoom calls with other world leaders? He’s been full vaccinated for months. Also: wearing a mask on a Zoom call is pointless.
Just about everyone in Congress has been vaccinated as well. However, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still requires everyone in the chamber to be masked at all times.
Arbitrary restrictions on ordinary life remain popular in states and counties with pro-lockdown leadership. Michigan, New York, and California all tried experimenting with curfews, suggesting that the COVID-19 virus becomes more aggressive during the night — which has no basis in any known form of science whatsoever.
So, are we beating this thing or not? Democrat leaders don’t seem to know — or they don’t care. If they take up the position that COVID-19’s grip on the world is over, they can’t justify their insane policy proposals. Democrats have a political interest in keeping the virus around as a constant narrative.
Great job, CDC — we’er glad you guys have finally caught up to the rest of us…
