Chicago Imposes Harsh Consumer Vaccine Mandates: “if you have been living vaccine-free, your time is up”
Mayor Lightfoot: “Beginning Jan. 3, you must show proof you are fully vax’d to enter bars, restaurants, fitness centers, and entertainment/recreational venues where food/drink are served.”
You know, every time I go home I want to move back. Chicago is home. It will always be home.
Then I come back to Oklahoma and remember freedom. Then Chicago officials do something asinine like these stupid mandates?
Mandates are stupid in general, but Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot seems to think COVID is on a different level. People ages five and up must provide vaccine proof at certain places along with photo ID. From The Chicago Tribune:
Lightfoot’s rules affect restaurants, bars, fast food establishments, coffee shops, tasting rooms, cafeterias, food courts, dining areas of grocery stores, breweries, wineries, distilleries, banquet halls, and hotel ballrooms, the city said.
It also includes gyms, yoga, Pilates, cycling, Barre and dance studios, hotel gyms, fitness boot camps, and other facilities, the city said.
Movie theaters, music and concert venues, live performance venues, adult entertainment venues, commercial event and party venues, sports arenas, performing arts theaters, bowling alleys, arcades, card rooms are also included in the order, the city said.
Not included are churches, airports and office buildings.
Businesses will not have to check individuals for proof of vaccination if they’re entering to order and carry out food, deliver goods, or use the bathroom.
Getting vaccinated and boosted is essential to protect the health of yourself, your friends, and your community.
There is vaccine available all across the city. Find yours at https://t.co/Kx6nROGjAg.

So I guess COVID will only infect you at the dining parts of grocery stores and not the rest of the store. You are also safe from COVID in church, at the airport, at a store, and in an office building.
You also do not have to show your papers if you “enter a location to participate in a school or after-school activity.” Some artists and professional athletes have an exemption. Lightfoot respects religious exemptions IF you can provide a negative COVD test.
Um, lady, a virus doesn’t care if you’re in a place for only a few minutes or a famous athlete. A virus is gonna virus.
If you’re unvaccinated Lightfoot hates you. She is doing this on purpose so you fall into line and do her bidding!
To put it simply, if you have been living vaccine-free, your time is up. If you wish to live life as w/the ease to do the things you love, you must be vax'd.
This health order may pose an inconvenience to the unvaccinated, and in fact it is inconvenient by design.

But wait! It’s okay because Lightfoot’s holiday party is over, which sounded like a lot of fun. But I guess no one took precautions!
Mayor Lori Lightfoot had a holiday party last week with karaoke. Some staff have tested positive since, why is the mayor not quarantining, @MaryAnnAhernNBC asks? "I test regularly, I tested this morning, I'm negative and I'm fully vaccinated plus a booster."

But we all know the truth because the vast majority of us plebes know that a lot of vaccinated people have the Rona.
