Well that was fun, did you all enjoy your 1-2 months without a mask?
Because the tyrants in charge are doing everything they can to bring them back!
And not just for the unvaxxed either….for everyone!
Never mind the fact that there’s no good science behind it or that the CDC is relying on information the refuse to publish….no, don’t pay attention to that!
Just do as your town and get in the boxcar!
Here’s the latest:

Fox News reported the following:
Nevada is reinstating a coronavirus mask mandate requiring people in high-transmission areas to wear masks in public indoor spaces – regardless of vaccination status.
The mandate becomes effective at 12:01 a.m. Friday in 12 of 17 counties in Nevada, according to state health officials on Tuesday.
“Businesses and residents in counties with substantial or high transmission are strongly urged to adopt the changes as soon as possible,” officials said in a statement.
The mandate follows guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which earlier in the day urged fully vaccinated Americans to wear masks indoors in areas with high transmission. In May, Gov. Steve Sisolak signed an emergency directive to automatically adopt CDC guidance on mask-wearing, FOX 5 Vegas reported.
Las Vegas, Carson City, and Reno are among the cities the indoor mask requirement applies to. The Nevada Gaming Control Board noted the mandate would also apply to casinos in counties with high transmission rates.
In Nevada, and throughout the U.S., the highly contagious Delta variant continues to fuel a recent spike in cases. As of Tuesday, at least 1,143 people in the state were hospitalized, according to state data.
“This update comes as the Delta variant now accounts for the majority of new cases,” the statement added. “The Delta variant has shown to be much more contagious and spreads more than twice as easily from one person to another, compared with earlier strains.”
Most new infections continue to be among unvaccinated people. Breakthrough cases have occurred, but they generally cause milder illness.
Governments and businesses are scrambling to change course following new federal guidance calling for the return of mask wearing in virus hot spots amid a dramatic spike in COVID-19 cases. Nevada and Kansas City moved to re-impose indoor mask mandate. https://t.co/nQdCvXI0ZL

What a crock of horse shit!
From CBS News:
Nevada is re-imposing a mask mandate for public indoor settings in places where COVID-19 is surging, including the state’s largest cities, state authorities said Tuesday.
Governor Steve Sisolak’s order, effective at 12:01 a.m. Friday, follows an indoor masking recommendation issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention earlier in the day.
State officials said they hope the three-day grace period gives businesses time to adapt to the new guidelines affecting residents regardless of vaccination status in 12 of the state’s 17 counties.
“Businesses and residents in counties with substantial or high transmission are strongly urged to adopt the changes as soon as possible,” state health officials said in a statement.
Reno officials said Tuesday that they plan to require masks at their facilities, which include city hall and indoor pools, starting Wednesday.
In Nevada and nationwide, recent spikes in the number of new coronavirus cases reported daily have been fueled by the highly contagious Delta variant.
Most new infections continue to be among unvaccinated people. So-called breakthrough infections, which generally cause milder illness, can occur in vaccinated people.
Nevada’s indoor mask requirements will apply to Reno, Las Vegas, Carson City, Elko and other cities. The state Gaming Control Board confirmed the mandate would apply to casinos in counties with high transmission rates.
It could hamper tourism industry efforts to entice visitors and trade shows back to power the state’s economy.
