As Breitbart News reported earlier in the week, county officials had warned that a mask mandate could be re-imposed by month’s end if the ongoing surge of highly contagious variants of coronavirus continued:

The county’s public health website is registering a dramatic rise in test positivity rate and hospitalization, though deaths remain flat.

According to a briefing Thursday by L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, authorities will reimpose the indoor mask mandate if hospitalizations — currently at 8.4. per 100,000 — reach 10 per 100,000 and stay there for two weeks.

The rise of new and highly contagious variants of COVID-19 is driving the new surge in infections.

On Thursday, Ferrer announced (via KABC-7) that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) standards for community levels of COVID-19, the county had entered the “high” level — driven by data showing 10.5 hospital admissions per 100,000 people — an 88% increase since a month ago.

Ferrer added that if the community level remains high through July 28, the county would immediately begin to reimpose indoor mask mandates on July 29.

  1. BOHICA!!

  2. I heard they increased the cycle rates for the PCR test…no wonder they are once again getting false positives. In any event, the Coronavirus is a cold virus. It has a 99% recovery rate. Stop the madness with these draconian actions! Stop electing Democrats fools….

  3. Have HAD more than enough says

    Done DONE DONE!!!! NPO MORE – – NO MAS!!!! Take your masks and shove them where the sun don’t shine!!!!! Ferrer and Garshitty and the rest of you morons – take a slow boat to China – am sure you’ll be happier there!!!!

    People – time to say NO!!!!!!!

  4. So…. With a population of 9,861, 237 you have 790 roughly in the hospital, some who didn’t even know they had Covid, hospitalized for another reason… for this they want to implement a mask mandate that scientifically does not work and has been proven not to work? This is about power and fear! Both are addictive drugs to politicians!

  5. Well that should put a damper on the sexual industry there

    Well, another talking point for Gov. Newsom when he tells Floridians how California is the state of freedom. The freedom to pick which mask you want to wear!

    What they fail to tell you is if you enter the emergency room for a broken ankle, are asymptomatic and they test you and you are positive they don’t isolate you nor treat you especially if you were already given a booster. Most of my “vaccinated” co-workers are getting covid and spreading it. The reason you are in the hospital is not covid just your ankle, so they count that as a positive that is in the hospital when in fact you are not in the hospital for covid. Most of my “mRNA treated” booster buddies or employees are all getting sick after the injection. How many more must they threaten you with before you realize it does nothing against the weaker strains, it was intended for long covid almost 2 years ago but if they can just keep pushing that $745.00 injection into the entire populace for no apparent reason then go for it.

  8. Masks, what are they good for, absolutely NOTHING except for crime, which is coming this summer!!!!! That’s why the masks!

  9. Our “betters” are loth to weaken their power and control. The China flu has become another method to tighten their grip. Like all of their methods, it’s based on fear.

  10. I’m done wearing suffocation face diapers. I won’t comply.

Speak Your Mind
