As Thanksgiving approaches, a California county is ordering residents to wear masks just about everywhere indoors, including private homes.
The ordinance, which went into impact late Sunday night, demands residents of Santa Johnson County to “ use a face covering whenever indoors regardless of vaccination status. ”
“ Unfortunately, a potential winter rise appears to be a significant threat to the health and safety of our community, ” claims Santa Cruz County’s health officer Dr . Gail Newel.
The health order makes special note of its proximity to the Thanksgiving holiday holiday, when homes is going to be filled with families coming with each other to celebrate festivities.
“ As we anticipate spending time with those all of us love during the holidays, it is very important protect vulnerable friends and family users by wearing a mask inside. Everyone who has not already been vaccinated should get their initial dose as soon as possible, and anyone who was vaccinated more than 6 months ago should seek out a booster. ”
The order notes there’s no specific end date to the mandate and it will remain in impact until local health specialists say otherwise.
Santa Cruz’s brand new order comes as Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif. ) also warned Monday the state could see a “ winter surge” of Covid illnesses.
“ Ask the governor of Michigan (or) Colorado how they are doing… States are struggling because people are taking down their own guard or claiming ‘ mission accomplished. ‘ … I don’t want to see that will happen here in California, ” Newsom mentioned Monday.
Of course , many may ignore the governor’s advice after he was caught flouting his own mask rules when he dined at the high-class French Laundry restaurant a year ago, despite imposing a statewide mask mandate.
EXCLUSIVE: We’ve obtained photos of Governor Gavin Newsom at the Napa dinner party he’s in hot water more than. The photos call in to question just how outdoors the dinner was. A witness who took photos lets us know his group was so loud, the sliding doors had to be closed. 10pm upon @FOXLA pic. twitter. com/gtOVEwa864

The over-the-top mandate furthermore follows an op-ed from the New York Times over the weekend by which so-called “ experts” ridiculously recommended that kids “ eat quickly” and change masks when not eating.
