California’s public health office says students and teachers returning to school in the fall are going to keep their masks on when indoors, regardless of their vaccination status.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has released guidance that said the state’s schools would continue to enforce a mask requirement for all students, faculty and teachers.

“Recent evidence indicates that in-person instruction can occur safely without minimum physical distancing requirements when other mitigation strategies (e.g., masking) are fully implemented,” the CDPH said Monday. “This is consistent with CDC K-12 School Guidance.”

The state’s guidance breaks from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance, which was updated Friday and said students and faculty who are fully vaccinated no longer had to wear masks while in school.

“Masks should be worn indoors by all individuals (age 2 and older) who are not fully vaccinated,” the CDC said. “Consistent and correct mask use by people who are not fully vaccinated is especially important indoors and in crowded settings, when physical distancing cannot be maintained.”

One of the reasons for a universal mask rule, the CDPH said, was to prevent bullying.

“Detrimental effects of differential mask policies include: potential stigma, bullying, isolation of vaccinated OR unvaccinated students, depending on the culture and attitudes in the school or surrounding community,” the CDPH said in the release.

The guidance previously said students would be barred from attending class if they refused to wear face coverings without a medical justification. In a tweet, the CDPH appeared to walk that back to ensure schools offer some sort of remote learning plan.

“California’s school guidance will be clarified regarding masking enforcement, recognizing local schools’ experience in keeping students and educators safe while ensuring schools fully reopen for in-person instruction,” it said.

New York state and Chicago Public Schools also have announced they would continue to require everyone to wear masks in their schools. States such as Texas, Iowa and neighboring Arizona have enacted laws banning masks in schools.

Mask Mandate

DC Mayor Photographed with Celebrities at Maskless Party Just Hours After Announcing Strict Mask Mandate

District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser appeared to be posing for photographs maskless at a party just a few hours before her Saturday mask mandate came into effect.

None of them wore masks, according to a screenshot of the Instagram post shared in a Saturday morning Twitter update by Washington Examiner journalist Jerry Dunleavy.

Chapelle, who was born in D.C., is performing in the district this weekend, according to a news release from Bowser’s office.

“DC is open and we are so proud to welcome home Dave Chappelle,” the Democratic mayor said in the release.

“Washingtonians have waited months to be able to enjoy shows like this one again, and it makes it even sweeter to be able to reopen one of our favorite venues with a performance from one of the world’s most beloved comedians and a DC native, Dave Chappelle.”

The images of the mayor maskless come as Bowser on Friday was sharing posts on Twitter urging D.C. residents to wear masks as a precaution against COVID-19.

LET’S STAY IN THIS TOGETHER, DC. BY MASKING UP, WE CAN PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY AND KEEP DC OPEN.

Two days ago, the mayor announced that people in the district must wear facial coverings indoors, whether they have received the COVID-19 vaccine or not, in a move that sparked swift backlash.

Bowser’s mask mandate was set to come into effect Saturday morning at 5.

The new mandate came days after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidelines for vaccinated individuals, recommending that even those who have been vaccinated put on face coverings indoors like their unvaccinated counterparts.

Bowser’s and the CDC’s moves come amid concerns over the more contagious Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus.

The mayor’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ query, asking if “the mask mandate was put into effect Saturday so she could celebrate her birthday on Friday,” according to the outlet.

Delta has demonstrated the capability of breaking through vaccinated people. This variant, first discovered in India, is now one of the most dominant coronavirus strains in the United States.

According to UCDavis Health, there have been 65,000 breakthrough cases among the 160 million fully vaccinated individuals in the country, as of July 23.

“Recent research found that the Delta variant grows more rapidly — and to much greater levels — in the respiratory tract,” UCDavis stated.

“As long as a chunk of people across the world are unvaccinated, new strains of the virus will continue to develop and cause problems.”

This is not the first time Bowser has gone against her own recommendations or guidelines. She was criticized for attending President Joe Biden’s victory speech in November despite Delaware being a state at “high risk” of COVID-19 infections, according to Fox News.

When asked about it, her office brushed the question away by asserting it was “essential travel,” the outlet reported.

Pelosi Called Out For Mask Hypocrisy After She Is Caught Removing Hers

Published

on

The rules are for thee, but not for me, appears to by a mantra that House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi lives by.

Many on social media called out the House Speaker for her hypocrisy after she created a rule demanding that everyone, even those who are vaccinated, wear face masks in the House but then was caught taking her own mask off for a photo opp.

She took her face mask off momentarily to take a picture with newly sworn in Republican Texas Rep. Jake Ellzey.

Pelosi only took off the mask for a few second and she was outside the bounds of the Chambers, but it still had many on Twitter calling her a hypocrite.

“Nancy Pelosi takes off mask, breaking her own mandate, for a photo,” one Twitter user said.

This comes hours after the Capitol Police published a memo advising its officers to advise staff and visitors to the Capitol who are not wearing a mask to leave.

And they were ordered to arrest staff and visitors on the House side of the complex who are not wearing a mask, though the order did not apply to Congress members.

U.S. Capitol Police have been ordered to start arresting staff and visitors to the House who are not wearing a mask, Fox News reported.

The Capitol Police were advised not to arrest members of Congress but to report them to the House Sergeant-At-Arms.

Republican Florida Rep. Kat Cammack received a copy of the memo from an unnamed police officer, she said to Fox News.

“In today’s edition of Pelosi’s abuse of power, Capitol Police have been directed to arrest staff and visitors to comply with her mask mandate for vaccinated individuals. For Members, they advise not arresting but ‘reporting Members to SAA for their failure to comply,’” she said on Twitter.

“But just in the last 24 hours, we’ve seen Speaker Pelosi without a mask, directly disobeying the very order she wants everyone else to follow. Rules for thee, but not for me at its finest,” she said.

BUT JUST IN THE LAST 24 HOURS, WE’VE SEEN SPEAKER PELOSI WITHOUT A MASK, DIRECTLY DISOBEYING THE VERY ORDER SHE WANTS EVERYONE ELSE TO FOLLOW.

“This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” she said to Fox News. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.”

“I cannot comply with this tyrannical order,” she said. “This is the people’s house, not Nancy Pelosi’s house.”

Cammack, like many other GOP reps, are up in arms about the return this week of coronavirus mask mandates at the House, regardless of vaccination status. The mask rules follow updated Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance in the wake of the rise of the contagious COVID delta variant and lower-than-expected vaccination rates.

GOP members huddled with Capitol Attending Physician Brian P. Monahan Wednesday at the Capitol to express their frustrations with the new mask guidance and say it’s not based on science. GOP members have openly revolted against the mask mandates – especially since it’s not in place on the Senate side – and said it’s a politically motivated mandate from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

A spokesperson for Speaker Pelosi said that she was not involved in the order from the Capitol Police and had just discovered it.

“The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” her spokesperson Drew Hammill said.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.”

But Republicans were blaming Pelosi for it.

“Power-trip Pelosi is making vaccinated folks at the Capitol wear masks – refusal to comply w/ this political theatre could result in arrest. Speaker Pelosi is more focused on D.C. swamp theatre than addressing skyrocketing violence, the crisis at our border, & sky-high inflation,” Rep. Mike Rogers said.

“The House of Representatives is supposed to be a democratic institution. But to enforce her absurd mask mandate, she’s gone full authoritarian, demanding the Capitol Police arrest staff and report Members who fail to comply,” Rep. Jason Smith said.

“This is absurd. Staffers and visitors will be arrested for not wearing a mask in the Capitol. The United States House of Representatives is officially under Nancy Pelosi’s authoritarian rule,” Rep. Guy Reschenthaler said on Twitter.

THIS IS ABSURD. STAFFERS AND VISITORS WILL BE ARRESTED FOR NOT WEARING A MASK IN THE CAPITOL.

Dan Crenshaw Goes After the CDC, Americans Shouldn’t Comply with Any More Mandates From That Agency

Published

on

Watch as Rep. Dan Crenshaw goes after the CDC and tells Americans to ignore any more mandates or lockdown orders coming from the agency:

BRUCE: This is a third world totalitarian sort of approach that — we have all seen it all. We have seen everything there is to see. This is shocking. It is — if they really don’t have anything to show us, why have they said that they are going to show us the data and what do you imagine that they would be showing us tomorrow? Maybe, I don’t know, the peanut Charles Schultz peanuts comic strip. What are they going to be showing people?

CRENSHAW: Defies common sense. They are not going to show us anything. Look, the vaccines are actually effective. I actually believe the FDA’s data on this. Not only are they effective but the FDA still stands by their assertion and their assessment of the data that says that these vaccines here in the United States are effective against transmission including the delta variant.

BRUCE: Exactly.

Stop the censors, sign up to get today’s top stories delivered right to your inbox

CRENSHAW: So the CDC is in direct confrontation with the FDA. I believe the FDA on this one. I think they tend to be more risk averse so they tend to get the science a little bit more right more often. And I think the CDC has been politicized in this case I think from pressure from the administration. Again, because I think the Democrats love to instill fear in the hearts of Americans. And I think Americans are really sick of this. They are over it they are not going to comply and you shouldn’t comply with any more lockdowns of any more mandates, none of it. Here in the house they are trying to fine us and jail us if we are not wearing a mask. These people are crazy.

We agree one hundred percent with Rep. Dan Crenshaw on this.

The CDC is power drunk and out of control and most Americans should ignore any future dictates until the ship is righted in that agency.
