Nothing says ‘freedom’ like more mask mandates! Los Angeles county opens door to more masks indoors indefinitely

Los Angeles County has resumed ordering residents to wear masks indoors, regardless of whether they’ve been vaccinated or not, thanks to an eruption of cases halfway around the world.

The professional scolds in Los Angeles County have warned that there’s no reason to know everyone’s vaccination status when authorities can just treat everyone like they’re a biohazard instead. Best to act like no one has had the jab and continue masks and social distancing indefinitely – just as the weather gets maddeningly hot and tempers are sure to flare!

Interestingly, the county rules are not mandates, meaning Los Angeles County has no power to actually enforce them, but citizens are obeying regardless. Nevertheless, residents appear to be ‘going along to get along,’ falling in line to avoid causing trouble despite the state government and the Centers for Disease Control both issuing guidance contrary to LA County’s. Federal guidance absolves vaccinated people in “certain public indoor settings” from having to wear masks, while unvaccinated individuals are still barred from wearing masks outdoors.

YouTube commentator Eric Feigl-Ding, who has a medical degree but no public health credentials, has appointed himself a de facto internet authority on Covid-19, weaponizing his degree to order his fellow Angelenos around, insisting “we must follow the precautionary principle with #DeltaVariant - it is simply too contagious,” declaring “fleeting exposures of **mere seconds** is enough to infection [sic]—faster than any previously known variant of COVID19. Australia contact tracing taught us a sobering lesson.”

Feigl-Ding referred to a situation in which a group of individuals reportedly caught the delta variant of the virus in Sydney via so-called “fleeting exposure,” when a woman sitting outside a cafe was determined to have been infected with the same genome as several others who had walked in and out of the cafe, even though security cameras did not record any contact between the elderly woman who had been sitting outdoors for an indeterminate amount of time and those indoors.
