The mask mandate is gone…for the vaccinated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finally caught up to us ordinary people that came to the decision that you can get back to normal once you’ve been vaccinated (through NBC News):
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday that individuals that are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 no longer have to wear masks or distance — whether indoors or outside in most circumstances.
Okay, that is not quite right because the CDC has not gone that far, but that is the situation. Period. For weeks, everybody knew you did not have to wear a mask once you were vaccinated. You also did not spread the virus once you got the shot too; this was dreadful science fiction which Dr. Anthony Fauci and his team peddled.
However, this all circles back to two things. One was CDC Director Rochelle Walensky’s warning that impending doom from COVID was upon us around spring break. It never happened. Texas has been reopened for well over a month. They also nixed their mask mandate. No spikes. Spring break happened. No spikes. There was no fourth wave. Even Fauci said given that millions were getting vaccinated, a fourth wave wasn’t going to happen. The second part of the fiasco was when Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) grilled Fauci over masks and reinfection, noting that people who have natural immunity have an exceptionally low risk of becoming COVID again. He also stated that if you are vaccinated and continue to wear masks, is not it just political theatre, which didn’t sit well with the COVID czar. It turns Rand and the rest of those who understood that mask-wearing after vaccination was idiocy were appropriate. The experts do not know anything. Well, first, they are not really experts. They’re DC bureaucrats that are giving their so-called guidance while also hoping to secure more funds for next year’s funding so ulterior motives abound.
It only feeds into the confusion. I mean, it is an acid trip. The CDC director says something –‘impending doom’–that is torpedoed by Fauci and the National Institutes of Health due to the vaccination rates, who then says that most of us need to remain within the bunker even after getting jabbed since…he said so. Oh, and children still have to wear masks playing outdoors because there’s so much illness out there. What the hell does this even mean?
