Today Ohioans thought the masks were coming off after Governor Mike DeWine announced the state would simplify COVID-19 mask restrictions. His attempt gave many hopes restrictions would be lifted. The hopes of burning masks, as well as simplifying mask mandates, were both dashed.
The feeble attempt to bring good news to Ohioans landed like a lead balloon. Masks are required in public. Period. That is what people want. Unless the governor can announce that, he needs to stay away from podiums.
Keeping the COVID Debbie-downer messaging going, Dr. Fauci continued his droning “No” message whenever asked about eating in a restaurant, taking off a mask, giving an elderly person a hug, travel, blinking or breathing, playing golf, blowing out a candle, or God knows what.
Fauci’s response when asked if it was okay for vaccinated folks to eat at restaurants shouldn’t surprise anyone.
“No it’s still no okay for the simple reason that the level of infection, the dynamics of infection in the community are still really disturbingly high. Like just yesterday there were close to 80,000 new infections, and we’ve been hanging around 60, 70, 75,000.”
