A central Florida sheriff says his deputies won’t be allowed to wear face masks except under some conditions, and neither will visitors to the sheriff’s office.
Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods said in an email to staff that he had weighed both sides of the issue amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“Now, I can already hear the whining and just so you know I did not make this decision easily and I have weighed it out for the past 2 weeks,” Woods said in the message earlier this week.
He added, “We can debate and argue all day of why and why not. The fact is, the amount of professionals that give the reason why we should, I can find the exact same amount of professionals that say why we shouldn’t.”
In July, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention asked Americans to wear masks against the virus. “There is increasing evidence that cloth face coverings help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others,” the CDC had said.
California – San Diego City Councilmember Jennifer Campbell on Tuesday threatened Ocean Beach residents: Follow the authoritarian Covid rules… or else!
“Behave or you’re gonna be in big trouble!” the hysterical Democrat tyrant said during a presser.
Jennifer Campbell screamed at residents on Tuesday and told them if they didn’t wear masks and social distance, more people were going to die.
“This is the worst virus in the history of medicine!” the retired physician screamed.
To be clear, a grand total of 602 people in San Diego County out of a population of approximately 3.5 million have died from Covid-19 since March.
TN Council Member Wants People Who Won’t Wear Face Masks Charged With Murder
Health experts won’t ask Americans to take off their masks anytime soon.
That’s the take of Eric Toner, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. He has been preparing for an outbreak like the novel coronavirus as part of his work for years.
Johns Hopkins practices virus simulations as part of its preparedness protocol, with the goal of offering public health experts and policymakers a blueprint for what to do in a pandemic. One of those simulations took place in October 2019, when Toner and a team of researchers launched a coronavirus pandemic simulation in New York, running through various scenarios on how residents, governments and private businesses would hypothetically react to the threat.
One thing that stood out to him: Face coverings are a vital defense to stop the spread of the virus. He believes COVID-19 won’t slow down in the US even as states start to slowly reopen.
The mask ordinance requiring all Martin County residents to wear face coverings where social distancing is not possible has expired.
Passed unanimously on July 7, the order was only valid for 30 days.
County officials decided not to renew the order.
In downtown Stuart, several people could be seen not wearing face coverings Saturday afternoon now that the order has expired.
However, other people were seen wearing masks, they said, out of an abundance of caution.
Metro Nashville At-Large Council Member Sharon Hurt said Wednesday during a virtual meeting of the Joint Public Safety and Health Committee that there should be stronger legislation for those not wearing masks and suggested they be charged with murder or attempted murder.
Hurt said that she works for an organization that, “If they pass the virus, then they are tried for murder or attempted murder.”
Hurt thinks the same standard should apply to the general public.
A video shot in the London underground shows a man wearing an ill-fitting mask that isn’t even fully covering his mouth aggressively lecturing another woman for not wearing a mask.
“So was just minding my own business when the mask police came to attack,” tweeted the woman involved in the confrontation.
“Fucking sort your shit out, yes, film me, because you’re a dickhead without a mask,” yells the rotund man as he approaches the woman in total violation of social distancing.
“You’re a cunt putting people’s lives at risk,” he continues, at which point in the video it becomes obvious that the man’s mask is not even fully covering his own mouth as he spits and snarls.

Dr. Deborah Birx has suggested that Americans may have to start wearing masks inside their own homes in order to fight the spread of coronavirus.
“What we are seeing today is different from March and April. It is extraordinarily widespread. It’s into the rural as equal urban areas,” Birx told CNN.
She then suggested that some Americans may need to cover their faces inside their own homes in order to protect other family members.
“If you’re in multi-generational households, and there’s an outbreak in your rural area or in your city, you need to really consider wearing a mask at home,” said Birx.
The doctor’s advice echoes that of the Texas Division of Emergency Management head Nim Kidd, who said people should wear masks indoors if they have potentially exposed themselves to the virus by being outside.

A story out of the UK describes how residents panicked by coronavirus in the tourist hot spot of Cornwall are “too scared” to go out, with one of them “leaping out of the way” to avoid other people.
The Independent report asserts that the “general consensus” amongst residents is abject fear of staycation tourists pouring into the region and infecting them with COVID-19, despite the fact that daily deaths from the virus in the UK have slowed to a trickle.
Complaining that visitors to the region were not properly social distancing, one female resident described physically leaping out of the way of people in sheer terror.
“My shielding is paused from today but I’m too scared to go out,” she said. “Tried walking into town a couple of times but no social distancing at all. I was constantly doubling back, leaping out of the way and panicking just to keep my distance from the hoards. It’s horrifying.”
