CA HHS Director Says New Universal Indoor Mask Mandate ‘The Common Sense Thing to do’

Mask Mandate

California has just been handed down the anti-Christmas gift of being forced to once again wear masks – indoors. In what was apparently a surprise move, California state officials announced the state is instituting a universal indoor mask mandate.

The mandate will go into effect Wednesday, December 15, and run through January 15, 2022. “we will require universal masking in indoor settings statewide” said state director of health and human services Dr. Mark Ghaly.

The order covers the remaining roughly 50% of Californians who are not already under such a mandate. “We know people are tired and hungry for normalcy. Frankly, I am too” said Ghaly. “That said, this is a critical time where we have a tool that we know has worked. We are proactively putting this tool of universal indoor masking in public settings in place to ensure we get through a time of joy and hope without a darker cloud of concern and despair” added Ghaly.

Before the new mandate was handed down, many counties followed the current state guidelines which included masks be worn indoors at public transit facilities such as “airports, healthcare settings, adult and senior care facilities, schools, correctional facilities, homeless shelters, emergency shelters and cooling centers” reports DEADLINE.

Ghaly told reporters on a conference call that the state has seen a 47% rise in case rates since Thanksgiving, having risen from 9.6 per 100,00 cases to 14 per 100,000. He also said patient levels at local hospitals are “significantly above their baseline for this time of year.”

“The new order extends the requirement in those counties to movie theaters, retail stores, restaurants, family entertainment centers and government offices that serve the public.” The state also required mask-wearing for unvaccinated people at indoor public facilities, but now masks will be mandatory regardless of vaccination status.

“We know that we’re entering into a pretty hard time, that we’re starting to see some of these numbers come up pretty quickly in some communities…[Masking] is the common sense thing to do,” said Ghaly.

    the streets of California are already unsafe. Now these Bolshevik Bureaucrats are mandating and giving cover for these masked marauders that LAPD has already warned they are unable to protect against the public from.

    Literally everyo9ne knows masks don’t work. Not a single peer reviewed study says they do…as a matter of fact, an honest doctor will tell you they don’t work against a virus!

    So this is about control…not o9ur health. They are NOT following the science.

    I’ve not worn a mask anywhere for the past three weeks.

    Why?

    Because our governor things he was elected to be a dictator.

    In those three weeks, I’ve been to the local supermarket, Walmart, Home Depot and more. I went maskless to let NV Governor/wannabe Dictator Sisolak know I am a FREE man, not a subject of the State!

    In all of those places, I had face-to-face conversations with store employees for various assistance issues and not ONE of them said a word about my not wearing a mask.

    Masks don’t work! There is NO evidence that they do.

    If masks work, why are not the number of new COVID cases plunging after two YEARS of ‘masks required’ mandates from so many states?

    Same thing for Social Distancing, which the former head of the CDC admitted had NO bearing in science. Then if the vax works and 80% of the population has been vaxxed, same question!

    REBEL against the TYRANNY!

    Rebel Against Tyranny!

    ‘The Common Sense Thing to do’
    NO the common sense thing to do would have been to vote newsome out of office a few months ago, but like the 2020 elections, the communist party refused to allow that to happen.
    The ‘The Common Sense Thing to do’ going forward would be to remove all marxists from office but again useful idiots won’t allow that to happen.

    No matter what, they will never tell the truth about the mask mandate… that it isn’t necessary and it doesn’t help! If it did, then after 2 years of wearing masks the virus should be gone! We have never worn masks for any virus for this long! And when you’re getting draconian mandates like this from a democratic run state, you know it has nothing to do with our health and everything to do with political power and control!

    Not happening. I will not comply. Businesses enforcing this will lose my dollars. Simple. This only works if people comply.

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
