- Bay Area Imposes Mandatory Masking As Cuomo Demands Private Businesses Ban Unvaxxed
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
Update (1600ET): Reimposing mask mandates isn’t exclusively the domain of blue states like California. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (a Democratic governor in a red state) has reinstated Louisiana’s mandatory mask mandate for all people over the age of five – regardless of vaccination status – citing the rise in hospitalizations in the Bayou State.
The order comes as Louisiana sees the highest rate of new infections per capita of any state in the union. Face masks should be work at all times unless a person is at home according to the mandate, which will be in place until at least Sept. 1.
Update (1500ET): San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area have just imposed mandatory masking orders, regardless of vaccination status, that will likely outlast the CDC’s mandate.
