The U.S. Centers for Disease Control says people who test positive for COVID-19 can still vote in person, according to a recent advisory on voting safely amid the pandemic.

“Voters who are sick or in quarantine should take steps to protect poll workers and other voters,” the advisory reads.

The instructions will likely raise eyebrows for many Americans living in states where sweeping mail-in voting measures have been adopted to reduce the spread of the novel virus.

“This includes wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, and washing your hands or using hand sanitizer before and after voting,” it states.”You should also let poll workers know that you are sick or in quarantine when you arrive at the polling location. Check with local authorities for any additional guidance.”

The instructions will likely raise eyebrows for many Americans living in states where sweeping mail-in voting measures have been adopted to reduce the spread of the novel virus.

“It should also raise some eyebrows regarding the extreme measures taken to lockdown businesses and shut down schools to mitigate the spread when according to the CDC wearing a mask and keeping social distance is all you need,” said Sara Carter on Tuesday, when the news came out. “It’s this back and forth that has Americans so confused as to the aimless mandates being imposed on our nation with regard to COVID-19.”

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
