The CDC is recommending that all people in “high transmission areas” for COVID return to wearing masks indoors, regardless of their vaccine status. These new recommendations come from the rise in cases of Covid because of the highly contagious Delta variant. More details at the Washington Post.
They are also recommending that all K-12 students, teachers, and staff wear masks when school begins in August. It will be interesting to see how the teachers’ unions respond to these new guidelines. Will they demand a return to online teaching? Or more pay for their ‘suffering’?
Will Governor Northam issue a new executive order to make us wear masks indoors and force all school students and teachers to wear them all day? Will he once again close many businesses? Will businesses be forced to “demand your papers”, proof of vaccinations, before they can serve you? How far will Northam and the Democrats go in imposing new restrictions on our liberties?
