Los Angeles County on the Verge of Bringing Back Mask Mandate


5 views

Los Angeles County is expected to reinstitute mask mandates as COVID-19 cases rise.

Although LA recently ‘strongly recommended’ masks in indoor spaces, the recommendation may soon change to a full-blown mask mandate.

LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer on Thursday said Los Angeles has currently reached “medium” COVID transmission levels and will require masks if it reaches “high” levels.

ABC News reported:

Los Angeles County may soon reimpose indoor mask mandates as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to rise in the area.

During a press conference Thursday, LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said the largest county in the United States had reached “medium” COVID-19 transmission levels and will require face coverings if it reaches the “high” category.

As of Dec. 1, Los Angeles County is averaging 2,490 new COVID-19 infections every day, the highest number recorded since Aug. 26, according to health department data.

Ferrer said the real count is likely much higher due to several people testing positive with at-home rapid tests and not reporting the results to health officials or due to people not testing at all.

Additionally, there are currently 1,164 residents hospitalized in the county due to the virus, which is the highest number of patients seen since Aug. 11.

Daily deaths are still relatively low at 14, but the figure could rise because COVID-related fatalities tend to lag a few weeks behind case and hospitalization increases, Ferrer noted.

“There is this common line of thinking that the pandemic is over and COVID is no longer of concern, but these numbers clearly demonstrate that COVID is still with us,” she said.

These are the COVID-19 transmission figures the public health tyrant is concerned about:

This clip from July’s MLB All-Star game, when she also threatened to re-apply mask mandates, is a perfect example of her hypocrisy.

Ferrer’s threat of requiring face masks for LA County is another attempt of controlling the masses.

But it’s up to LA residents to say NO!
