Herd Immunity is medical.
Point being, Gil (woosh!!!) is that people are ignoring the "mandates". They will go on being mandates until we collectively tell these businesses to kindly fuck off.

If they HAD said somthing, I'd have done this (stolen from an Aubrey Huff tweet): "OK fine, I'll leave and YOU can restock all this shit. Or, you can just check me out and I'll be on my way". :coffee: :coffee:

Texas Governor Greg Abbott caught heat from Democratic lawmakers when he announced on March 2 this year he would fully reopen the state by the next week. Mississippi lawmakers declared a similar reopening plan about the same time.

The idea was to get more people acclimated back to normal life, including businesses at full capacity and sports arenas full of fans again. For Texas, the governor wanted businesses back at 100 percent and placed filled up again, from school halls to dance halls.

President Joe Biden called such reopening plans as "Neanderthals thinking." "I hope everybody has realized by now these masks make a difference. We are on the cusp of being able to fundamentally change the nature of this disease because of the way we are able to get vaccine in people's arms," Biden said in the White House on March 3.

"The last thing we need is the Neanderthal thinking that in the meantime everything's fine, take off your mask, forget it. It still matters. ... It's critical, critical, critical, critical that they follow the science."

Texas blazed its own path and reopened for business, and the Texas Rangers had a ballpark full of cheering fans for its home opener last month.

On Sunday, just a couple of hours after a major PGA event in Dallas and the NCAA FCS college football national championship in Frisco, Abbott reported that the state had no COVID-related deaths the previous 24 hours, and that the seven-day positivity rate was the lowest it's been since records have been taken—which was March 2020.

Abbott also said COVID hospitalizations was at its lowest in 11 months.

Today Texas reported:

* 0 Covid related deaths--the only time that's happened since data started being tracked in March, 2020.

* the fewest Covid cases in over 13 months

* the lowest 7-day Covid positivity rate ever

* the lowest Covid hospitalizations in 11 months.

Biden expressed disappointment in those states that had plans to fully reopen, saying the goal was for every American adult to receive vaccinations before starting big gatherings, with a target date of July 4 for families to get together and celebrate.

"We've been able to move that all the way up to the end of May to have enough for every American, to get every adult American to get a shot," Biden said in March.

Biden was 0-for-2 against Texas when, after the Rangers baseball organization said it planned to open at full capacity following Abbott's executive order, the president called that decision a "mistake." Rangers general manager Jon Daniels shrugged off that comment and said he still hoped for a full venue on opening day, which he got.
It's science though. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Not even in private businesses? Because we don't in Texas either, but businesses are allowed to set their own rules.

What’s funny is both sides talk a good game on social media but in public mostly avoid being a Karen, thankfully. (Self included).
Went into my local grocery store last night. Sign on the door said "Mask covering required for entry". Walked in without a mask, fully 70% of the people walking around the store had no mask on. Went about my business, went through checkout with no mask on, bought my shit and moved along. Nobody said a single word to me about my lack of a mask, not the checkout lady, not any employee, not any customer.

This stupidity will end when we decide it will end and just stop complying.
Boom! Showed them! :lol:

So according to Worldometer, roughly calculating:
-Cases down about 87% (7 day avg) and 90% (3 day avg) from their Jan peak.
-Deaths down about 83% (7 day avg) and 87% (3 day avg) from their Jan peak.

The Commie Dictator of California just proved that he was just using science to justify his desire to exert control over us. Just as soon as science as shown by the CDC said it was OK for us to come out of our shell, "Pretty Boy" Gavin Newsom's true colors exerted themselves when he refused to lift the mask mandate.

And we wonder why a goodly portion of the state wants to get rid of him?!?
