Some Blue State governors are ignoring the end of CDC’s 14-day quarantine guidelines

Some Blue State governors are ignoring the end of CDC’s 14-day quarantine guidelines

Ignoring the “experts,” California Gov. Gavin Newsom said, ” “We will not be influenced by that change.”

Late last week, in a move that signals that COVID-drama may be slowly be coming to a close, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) dropped its recommendation for travelers to quarantine for 14 days upon returning from trips overseas or out of state during the coronavirus pandemic.

The CDC updated its guidelines on its website. Though the two-week recommendation was changed, the federal agency did caution travelers that they can still contract the novel coronavirus while traveling.

“You may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still spread COVID-19 to others,” the agency warns. “You and your travel companions (including children) may spread COVID-19 to other people including your family, friends, and community for 14 days after you were exposed to the virus.”

However, the governors of some states have opted to ignore the “experts” and are continuing to enforce restrictions for non-essential visitors traveling to their states.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo indicated Tuesday that New York’s travel advisory won’t be scrapped anytime soon.

“The pandemic is not over,” Cuomo said.

Cuomo did announce that five states — Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Maryland and Montana — have been removed from New York state’s COVID-19 travel advisory to quarantine.

Apparently, the quarantine rules are not applicable to everyone headed to the Empire State.

When music’s biggest stars descend on New York for the Video Music Awards this week, NYPD cops will show up to check out the shows.

But they won’t be judging the talent. Officers in the NYPD’s TV/Movie unit will see if the performers and their entourages are wearing masks and staying socially distant, city officials told The Post.

Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and many others are set to perform at various outdoor locations “with limited or no audience” on Sunday, Aug. 30. The show’s original location at Barclays Arena was dropped due to COVID-19 concerns.

“The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and Citywide Events is working in close coordination with the production to ensure guidelines are being followed,” a City Hall spokesperson said, adding that the NYPD unit will be doing “compliance checks during the production.”

California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom also disagrees with the CDC’s new guidance and insisted that it will not be implemented in the state.

“I don’t agree with the new CDC guidance. Period. Full stop,” he said. “We will not be influenced by that change.”

Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said those traveling to places with high transmission rates should be mindful of the potential to contract the virus and expose others to it. She also reminded residents that L.A. County is a COVID-19 hot spot, and traveling from the community could present a risk to outsiders.

“My message really is: whether you’re flying or staying home, you need to be mindful that we have to reduce our transmission,” she said. “The way we do that is by reducing exposure to other people.”

But I thought “settled science” and “experts” were suppose to decide policy.

On a related note, the CDC is also now saying that saying those who have been exposed to the virus may not need to be tested.

The agency is no longer recommending testing for most people without symptoms, even if they have been in close contact with someone who has had the virus.

Under the previous guidelines, testing was appropriate for those with recent or suspected exposure, even if they were asymptomatic. But the CDC changed the recommendations on its website on Monday.

Now the agency says those without symptoms who are exposed no longer need a test.

“Science!” is their God.

Except when that’s not convenient.

    As is the Dhimmi-crats’ other professed deity, “Diversity.” By which they actually mean, “conformity” and “uniformity.” So, yet another false God they claim to worship..

    If they did not have double standards, they would have no standards at all.

From day one of this Wuhan virus episode, the vile Dhimmi-crats have engaged in blatant and callous politicization, histrionics, partisan fanaticism, fear-mongering and hysteria, all for the purpose of damaging POTUS’s political standing and re-election prospects, and, with sociopathic and callous indifference to the economic and mental/physical health consequences of a prolonged, manifestly unwarranted total lockdown.

What the Dhimmi-crats have done, here, is unforgivable, in my view.

The virus evolved and reached peak viability several weeks (~ 6 weeks) after implementation of mitigation strategies, including: shelter in place, masks, social distancing. That said, Planned Pathogen may still be required to address the burden of infection and disease progression in vulnerable individuals and mitigate the risk of repeating Planned Parent.

“Some Blue State governors are ignoring the end of CDC’s 14-day quarantine guidelines”

Welcome to the scam.

    Give them a medal for (phony) consistency.

    To them, science has always been whatever they want it to mean and whatever helps their agenda.

    Blacks get sick more from this racist disease. But blacks cannot get sick or spread the disease by mass riots, demonstrations, Democratic party functions etc etc.

    More than 10 people cannot attend a relative’s funeral. But thousands can crowd, riot, spit, scream and threaten others and woke scientists will declare that safe.

    So if they didn’t make an exception for the music stars, hell would have frozen over. (oh no, climate change!).

Thank you for not referring to degreed SJW Barbara Ferrer as “Doctor”. She isn’t concerned at all about ending the “crisis” but only about manipulating her interpretations of certain data to extend it for political purposes… like shut everything down to the extreme when the regular flu season begins next month, extending it the November elections and then slowly putting us through an even worse version of tyranny next year.

It will never end. We will be under iron-fisted communist rule under the pretense that it is for the public health. We will have to declare ourselves to be peaceful rioters exercising our constitutional rights just to get a breath of fresh air.

Not surprised that the CDC is recommending that if you don’t have symptoms don’t get tested.

As an example of one of the reasons they likely did this, during a previous mass protest in DC there were lines hours long to get tested at various DC fire stations in the week or so afterward. After yesterday’s the same thing will likely happen. Went to a protest? Oh, just go get a free Covid test. Nothing to it.

As well, and I just speculate this from my own experience having to be hospitalized twice since this all started (first time I got the poke-your-brains test, second time I didn’t get one), that if you get routine bloodwork done they’re going to make the antibody test part of it.

    I learned a few things this past few days, when I checked off 6 of the symptoms, except I never ran a fever

    1. My Dr. doesn’t want me anywhere around them, so they told me to go to the state website to find a nearby testing location

    2. My small county of 15K has none. The larger county of 85K, only a few miles from me, only has 2. And both of them are for First Responders and those with a doctors note only

    3. Another small county 30 minutes away has a drive thru, but only after completing an online questionnaire and getting a #

    4. Results take 4-6 days, meaning I would get no treatment for my symptoms at the time I need it

    5. An RN friend told me that they can do the 15 minute test at the ER, and she even offered to take me so I didn’t expose my daughter to it on the ride there.

    That posed a few problems that concerned me

    I did NOT want to be isolated from my family, with little means of communication and face the possibility of dying alone

    Thanks to Democrats “fixing” healthcare, I was priced out of the insurance market, so the hospital would have 2 choices

    (a) Find I did not have the ‘rona and take the chance that I would or would not pay the bill

    (b) Find I DO have it, whether I do or not, just so they are assured payment from the Feds

    I roughed through it with 4 days in bed, and seem to be on the downhill side of whatever it is I had, but I’m as weak as a newborn kitten right now

My governor had a bit of a melt down over the CDC’s change in recommendations. She said they were ignoring the “Science!!!!” in favor of politics. She’s also an idiot who thinks you can spread covid by walking across a parking lot or pumping gas without a mask.

It’s almost like they have a different agenda, or something.

As an element of Trump’s administration, it is imperative that Democratics ignore CDC guidelines that fail to obstruct Trump’s goals.

Several weeks ago a person in a family members office tested positive when she went into labor. That was Sunday and she had been in the office in close proximity to pretty much everyone. Because she was asymptomatic, the hospital did no tracing and did not recommend anybody be tested if they didn’t want to. Everyone did. Nobody was positive or has subsequently exhibited symptoms including her husband and children. The hospital was right then and the CDC is correct now.

As I always say, there are no healthy people anywhere in the country. There are only people who have Covid and people who might have Covid.

The whole thing has been a monstrous farce from Day One.

Lockdowns and Mask Mandates Do Not Lead to Reduced COVID Transmission Rates or Deaths, New Study Suggests

Five COVID-19 Charts Democrats Can’t Let You Know About

Slaves, reparations. Illegal immigrants, undocumented laborers. No masks, masks. Science, 98 genders. Klan, ACLU, Antifa.

Democrats make it up as they go along. Always have, always will.
