LA County Sherriff Won’t Enforce Mask Mandate Due To The Fact “It’s Not Backed By Science”


658 views

LA County is going back to ground zero and issuing another mask mandate but not everybody is on board with the idea.

The LA County Sheriff has issued a statement  saying that he won’t be enforcing the new mask mandate.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva went on record to say he doesn’t have the resources to enforce residents of Los Angeles County to wear a mask due to the fact the same County defunded his department.

He also stated that “forcing the vaccinated and those who already contracted COVID-19 to wear masks indoors is not backed by science”.

Here’s Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s official statement regarding the new mask mandate:

Forcing the vaccinated and those who already contracted COVID-19 to wear masks indoors is not backed by science and contradicts the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) has authority to enforce the order, but the underfunded/defunded Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will not expend our limited resources and instead ask for voluntary compliance.

We encourage the DPH to work collaboratively with the Board of Supervisors and law enforcement to establish mandates that are both achievable and supported by science.

Breitbart News covered the story too:

The Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva on Friday said he would not use the department’s “limited resources” to enforce the new mask mandate imposed on the county since it is “not backed by science.”

The decision to reinstate the Los Angeles County indoor mask mandate, regardless of vaccination status, has seen mixed reviews, particularly by Villanueva.

In a statement, Villanueva claimed that the new mandate to force even the vaccinated to wear a mask is “not backed by science” and contradicts federal guidelines.

“Forcing the vaccinated and those who already contracted COVID-19 to wear masks indoors is not backed by science and contradicts the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines,” Villanueva wrote.

He explained that the county’s Department of Public Health has the “authority” to enforce the order. However, he stated that the “underfunded” and “defunded” sheriff’s department under his watch “will not expend our limited resources.”

“We encourage the DPH to work collaboratively with the Board of Supervisors and law enforcement to establish mandates that are both achievable and supported by science,” Villanueva added.
