CDC Pulls Recommendation for ‘Virtual’ Halloween and Thanksgiving
The CDC said someone posted old guidelines. But those who saw the webpage before deletion mentioned the CDC included guidelines for fully vaccinated people.
Fauci caused a stir when he said “it’s too soon” to know if people should celebrate Christmas with their families.
Then people noticed the CDC recommended virtual Halloween and Thanksgiving celebrations.
Both received immediate backlash. Both quickly walked back or deleted the comments.
I figured something was up with the CDC. I read Jazz Shaw’s write-up at Hot Air on the new guidelines. However, I could not find anything about holiday celebrations on the website.
The CDC quietly deleted the recommendations for virtual holidays:
As of Monday, the holiday tips landing page was removed, with CDC representatives noting that old guidance was posted in error and that new guidance is coming soon.
“The content is in the process of being updated by CDC to reflect current guidance ahead of this holiday season,” CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund said in a statement. “The page had a technical update on Friday, but doesn’t reflect the CDC’s guidance ahead of this upcoming holiday season. CDC will share additional guidance soon.”
Weird. Old guidance? People who saw the webpage said the CDC mentioned fully vaccinated people. Jazz Shaw wrote:
Despite vaccinations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still recommends people celebrate Thanksgiving virtually this year.
Updated guidance states that attending gatherings for events and holidays still increases the risk of getting and spreading COVID-19, especially with the threat of the highly transmissible delta variant…
Travel is not recommended unless individuals are fully vaccinated. Even so, travelers must still wear masks on public transportation.
The recommendations are just for Halloween and Thanksgiving as of now.
The CDC includes additional advisories if you refuse to celebrate Thanksgiving over Facetime. You should first consider hosting your dinner outdoors with everyone sitting six feet apart. Yes… outdoors. At the end of November. I’ll just remind everyone that last year, at least in upstate New York, we’d already had our first snowstorm of the season by Thanksgiving. On the plus side, if you do host your party outdoors, the CDC says that “masks may not be needed.” What a relief.
The CDC made the post on Friday to no fanfare. Fauci made his comments on nation TV.
I think something is happening behind closed doors at the CDC, especially since everyone attacked Mr. Grinch over his Christmas comments. Fauci claimed people “misinterpreted” his comments after the intense criticism.
No one cares. Remember, the loudest people usually do not represent the majority (looking at you, MSM and coastal elites).
The majority of people I know gathered with family and friends on Thanksgiving and Christmas in 2019. I might be a hermit, but I know plenty of people.
I’m celebrating the holidays with family and friends again. No masks. No social distancing. Lots of hugs and laughs. Lots of eating and drinking. Lots of eating after my nieces and nephews because why waste the wonderful food?
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I will agree to wear a mask on Halloween. Also, I am force feeding my turkey Ivermectin and I am having a rooster shot. Anyone who wants to maintain a 6 foot distance may do so-underground.
Proving, yet again, that this is all just political bullshit.
Actual science doesn’t change based on what people like or don’t like.
But this crap hasn’t been about ‘science’ for a long time.
Masks are “symbolic” (of submission, I guess) and the 6-foot rule was made up out of nothing.
That’s nothing. In a lot of countries there are 6 foot 7 separation mandates.
The military institute in Wuhan observed droplet spread in hospitals and recommended a minimum of 3 meters physical distancing. Then there is the study that detected no viable viruses around the patient’s bed, but a commode and ventilation shafts primed for cross-contamination.
Well, that’s just Metric Masking.
In the ancient times, submission was processed through sodomy of boys and girls. In modern lands, it still is.
Seriously? What moron goes to the CDC website to receive advice about Halloween or Thanksgiving? Get a grip people, go live your life.
So they’re caught in a lie. Again. Another day, another lie from the CDC and/or Fauci.
The serial liars at the CDC wonder why fewer and fewer people believe what they say about Covid. They’re supposed to be smart. So smart they think we’re all stupid.
Note, the CDC stopped tracking ‘breaththrough’ infections last May. I wonder why. Too much work? Unimportant? Too busy with other things?
Can’t wait until they tell us how guns make people shoot other people. And that Comrade Biden must declare a national gun violence emergency and ‘vaccinate’ Americans from guns.
“We oppressed you entirely in error. That’s our final story. Also, there will be no apology.”
That sounds official!
They stopped tracking breakthrough infections for the same reason Biden’s proposed employment mandate only mandates testing of the unvaccinated: to maintain the narrative that the vaccines work and that it’s a “pandemic of the unvaccinated”. If you don’t collect data about the vaccinated you can dishonestly say you have no data indicating the vaccines are ineffective.
How much longer do we have to put up with this?
Mainstream media and the Democrats are salivating over the coming pushback. They will label us as “terrorists” followed by the ultra-scary “White Nationalists” which will be the impetus for the incarceration of hundreds of thousands…if not millions…of people peacefully addressing their greivances with an out of control Government.
We need flags with “Let’s go Brandon” on them!
Not much longer. The Democrats are actually the real terrorists, and demonstrably so. They are going to get their much hated “blowback” in ways even they will not understand.
“We need flags with “Let’s go Brandon” on them!”
The memes write themselves.
Why? The original message is 100% appropriate.
I’m no prude, but Mama didn’t teach me to be profane in public.
As much as I would like to shout “F Joe Biden” in public I just can’t.
Mockery is our best weapon against these thin skinned fools.
I’ll shout twice as loud. Just for you.
Brandon Brown, the most famous NASCAR driver in history with 80 million fans, said he was very motivated to hear the crowd shout “Let’s go Brandon.”
He’s so famous he makes Richard look Petty.
“a virtual Halloween and virtual Thanksgiving.”
You mean like a virtual presidency, with virtual POTUS news conferences with virtual questions and virtual answers?
Adding insult to injury, we actually have to pay these fools’ salaries and exorbitant benefits with our tax dollars. #firefauci
“You should first consider hosting your dinner outdoors with everyone sitting six feet apart. Yes… outdoors.”
Maw, do we know any Indians?
Maw, do we know any Indians?
Well, Nickki Haley lives down the street.
Aw come on Maw, you know I mean Native American.
Well, there’s Lizzy Warren. She has a pure Native American ancestor who probably lived about 6 to 10 generations ago.
Actually she almost certainly doesn’t have even that.
A tip of the hat to Milhouse.
Turkeys must have a union.
Birds of a feather?
Leftists will always lie, even when faced with proof they lied. They’ve got the same mentality as toddlers. At least toddlers have an excuse. They’re trying to learn to navigate the difference between truth and reality.
Saturday I hosted a neighborhood bbq. It wasn’t big.. 15 friends and neighbors, so you will never see anything about us on the news. As he was leaving, Scott gave me a big hug and told me that is his kind of social distancing. We should all be like Scott.
IDGAF what the CDC says.
