Florida Gov Ron DeSantis

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has vowed to not place the state on a second lockdown or issue a statewide mask mandate, despite many other states who have reinstated restrictions following COVID-19 surges.

On Sunday, Florida reported 10,000 new cases, the largest number of cases in a single day since the peak over the summer.

In response to the Sunday report, DeSantis’ Director of Communications, Fred Piccolo Jr., emphasized that there was an increase in testing.

“Almost 150,000 Covid tests yesterday. 7.5% positivity rate. Still under 10%. Washing hands. Social distancing. Protect the elderly. Don’t lockdown. Keep calm and carry on,” Piccolo wrote on Twitter.

A spokesperson for Governor DeSantis told CBS12 News that the Governor will not lockdown and hurt families who can not afford to shelter-in-place for six weeks.

“Especially not for a virus that has a 99.8% survival rate,” the spokesperson said. “One area of concern is Assisted Living Facilities. Since those over 70 face the greatest threat, the Governor is monitoring those numbers daily and is prepared to move therapeutic and prophylactic assets to those facilities as needed.”

At the end of September, DeSantis moved all of the state into Phase 3 of re-opening, which eliminated COVID-related business closures and capacity limitations.

His order made county-wide mask mandates unenforceable, by eliminating fines associated with them.

The state has seen a steady increase in cases and positivity rates since re-opening.

Overall, 56,907 people in the county have been diagnosed with the virus since the pandemic began.

Oregon’s Menstrual Dignity Act has layers of perversion. In July of last year, democratic Governor Kate Brown signed the “Menstrual Dignity Act” which requires schools k-12 to carry and provide free sanitary products to students with instructions on how they are supposed to be used. The installs have begun, according to a video posted be @libsoftiktok.

The Portland school district stated, “starting next year (2022-2022), products will be available in all restrooms (male, female and all-gender) in every PPS building where education occurs.”

Fox News reports that “Menstrual Dignity for Students” tool kits containing instructions and tips for “menstruation-positive” language for families.

Part of the kit reads: “Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
