Los Angeles County Poised to Reinstate Indoor Mask Mandate

Los Angeles County Poised to Reinstate Indoor Mask Mandate

Business owners and their customers are unhappy.

A rising number of covid cases has Los Angeles County health officials threatening a possible return to indoor mask mandates.

In fact, changes could be coming within weeks if we “continue on the current trajectory,” L.A. County Health Director Barbara Ferrer said during a briefing Thursday.

“We’re likely to move into the CDC high community level within a few weeks … indicating an increased stress on the health care system,” Ferrer said.

The jump to a higher CDC COVID-19 community level, the worst of the three-tier system, would mean the return of mask mandates at most indoor settings.

Not surprisingly, LA area businesses owners are very unhappy.

“I think it’s tough,” said Aaron Han, daily operations manager at Han’s Beauty Store. “As far as our staff, we’re happy to wear masks. We’re all vaccinated, but as far as having our customers do it, it’s tough.”

It’s been several months since the staff at all the Han’s Beauty stores in the San Gabriel Valley have had to remind customers to wear a mask.

…Universal masking would be reinstated a couple of weeks after that, and not many customers are welcoming the idea.

“If we have to, we have to, but it would be nice if we can get this thing over with and we can move forward,” said Rick Ursitti of Altadena.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently placed 13 California counties in the high COVID-19 community level, so the mask mandate is already here for a few California areas.

Nearly 1 in 6 Californians live in a county with a high COVID-19 community level. The affected counties are Santa Clara, Sonoma, Solano, Marin and Napa in the San Francisco Bay Area; Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, El Dorado in the Sacramento Valley area; and Monterey, Mendocino, San Benito and Del Norte elsewhere in Northern California.
What actions are being taken?

Alameda County issued a new mask mandate for most indoor public settings effective Friday, becoming the first California county to do so.

The county, home to Oakland, is the Bay Area’s second-most populous. Its mandate is the first issued in California since the winter Omicron surge faded.

The results if the move speak for themselves.

As much as I despise the entire scamdemic, I partly wish California would do this again.

There would be no benefit to the public ( there never was) but it would serve to infuriate the people, bring back more suffering and make it happen right before midterms.

The left is “riding the tiger” and they know they are losing their power grip on the masses. They really have no option but to pursue things like this.

    Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it.
    Nothing fosters undying hate for statism like more statism.

With the exception of the hospital, I can’t even remember the last time I saw someone wearing a mask. Covid is over where I live, and has been for quite some time now.

People who live in states where they are still pushing this covid bullshit need to grow a pair and refuse to participate in this farce.

    taurus the judge in reply to SField. | June 21, 2022 at 7:33 am

    I bring forth the argument that in reality, Covid ( as made into the monster the media claimed) “never was” in the first place and all metrics and publicity was modified into the worlds largest “bait and switch” con.

      It basically amounted to a big nothing where I live. Granted, where I live is really remote and sparsely populated, but nonetheless there’s been zero covid deaths in my community, and only a handful of people who actually caught covid ended up in the hospital.

      It’s not due to the “vaccine” either, as my county has the lowest covid vaccination rate in the entire state.

        For the obese and those with other medical problems maybe the placebo effect of wearing a mask lowers their stress level, reduces their heart rate and they don’t have a heart attack?

        Otherwise an ill fitting, improperly worn mask which most people lack the discipline to properly change, store, maintain or dispose is of zero benefit.

          SField in reply to CommoChief. | June 21, 2022 at 10:37 am

          I think a placebo effect is a possibility.

          People better versed in the stats for this area than I am hypothesize that by the time covid reached our area the delta variant was mostly spent and what we got was the milder early omicron.

          The timing and mild nature of the symptoms both support that theory.

We need to ready ourselves as a nation for when these despots try to shut us down again. Two words: Civil Disobedience.

    Recognize that the State enforced their mandates primarily via businesses and schools. WRT businesses, civil disobedience may mean going in w/out mask but when you get to the checkout stand you have a decision to make—leave your items or walk out with them.

Since you are over seven hundred studies the date back to the Spanish Flu proving masks are no good this is nothing but a symbol that you will submit to anything the left has to offer

What is wrong with people in L.A.?!!!

    People in L.A.

      People here like it! I’m over on I’m on the west side near UCLA at the moment, and tons of people are walking around outside masked. The poor guys cooking in the restaurant kitchen in the heat are all masked. This place is crazy!

I reside in a mostly common-sense community here in NE Tennessee.

The ONLY ones making a big to-do about masks is any doctor office in the East Tennessee State University network. Ballad Health affiliates are not requiring them, and as far as I can tell, neither are others.

As for ETSU, you “play the game” in the waiting room, but once you hit the exam room, you can take them off, and most of the personnel do as well.

It’s all theater, and they know it. As for ETSU itself, I’ve not had a piano lesson in person in close to two years because if someone coughs three counties over, the campus goes into gotta-wear-a-mask mode. I not only WON’T, but CAN’T. I just CANNOT BREATHE with the damned things.

    Had an appointment with my cardiologist a few months back. When I entered the office, the clerk didn’t have her mask on and nobody else working there did either. When she saw me, she put it on.

    When I went into the exam room, the nurse immediately told me that I could take off my mask. And she took hers off. When the doctor came in the room, he saw I wasn’t wearing a mask and asked if he could take his off. I preferred that he did. “Good. They don’t do anything anyway.” He asked me if I had had a booster. When I said no, he gave me another “good”.

    Same office, another appointment. The nurse and I were chatting during a test and she told me that they all thought the mask mandate is BS, but that they were forced to wear them by the administrators. You know, the paper pushers, more than likely afraid of the Karens.

    It’s all kabuki theater.

      “It’s all kabuki theater.”

      Yeah, but it’s good entertainment and a lot of patrons enjoy it. Theatre candy is sold out. Popcorn is in short supply. And the mask manufacturers are making more money than Elon Musk.

Look at it for what it is and then connect the dots from the psyops perspective.

The mask ( the physical mask as in the N-95 variety and being worn visibly) is only valuable in 2 ways.

It shows “we” ( the ruling class) are large and in charge ( we demanded the mask, made the mask and ordered you to wear it)

It shows you (us) are the weak sheeple because “you” are wearing it. (you are willingly acknowledging your subservience to the almighty state)

Its a control method known as stigmatizing (like Jews with stars, shaved heads and so forth) a class.

Remember ( for the alleged stated purpose of protecting an individual from a biological agent), the mask doesn’t work, it never worked, it never will work and never was intended to work.

It has always been a control measure.

Pardon the all-caps, but I’m pissed:

    Sorry, again for the screaming, but our health department is run by absolute MORONS!!! (You should hear me listening to the news in the car!)

Frank Hammond | June 21, 2022 at 12:34 pm

The spineless cowards in California will put the mask back on without a peep of protest. I was in San Diego last month for business Conference our server in the Hotel Restaurant was wearing a mask – I asked her if she was force to wear a mask. She replied she was wearing it to keep me safe.

    Ann in L.A. in reply to Frank Hammond. | June 21, 2022 at 12:52 pm

    About a third to half of people in grocery stores in my part of L.A. are still wearing them, and I still see people walking outside, alone wearing them.

    taurus the judge in reply to Frank Hammond. | June 21, 2022 at 1:20 pm

    In all fairness ( based on my conversations with some people) its not as much “cowardice” as it is a true “fear” based in ignorance of the applicable and fanned by the lies of the establishment and media.

For people… persons worried about transmission, but not particularly about infection, then a mask, a petri dish, a viral collector, must be worn to mitigate the perpetual risk posed by bacteria, viruses, and other pathogenic entities.

Covid-19 is an aerosol borne virus. Surgical masks filter 10% of aerosols. But that 10% is the covid-19 virus, right? How does the filter know?

The motto of today’s public health authorities:

‘If at first you don’t succeed—keep doing the same thing; you must be doing something right.’
