Washington DC and The Holy Land>KC Mayor Lucas issues mask order

We'll see how this plays out. Pretty tame by most national standards, and also includes them lifting the "50% capacity" limit on restaurants, which should help them out. Guess I'm pretty neutral on it but am interested to see what it stirs up.

You’ll need a mask to go out in Kansas City. Here’s what the mayor’s order says

Kansas City will require the use of masks in public settings starting Monday, Mayor Quinton Lucas announced at a news conference Friday.

The move is an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 as the area sees its highest number of daily case increases since the first cases of the virus were detected in March.

“It is a rule keeping people safe and hopefully saving lives,” Lucas said, adding, “Businesses are to refuse customers not wearing masks.”

On Thursday, the KC metro area reported 227 new coronavirus cases, a record single-day increase. Friday, 204 cases were reported in the metro, which consists of Kansas City and Jackson, Clay and Platte counties in Missouri and Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas.

Lucas’ order says “all employees or visitors to any place of public accommodation must wear face coverings in an area or while performing an activity which will necessarily involve close contact or proximity to co-workers or the public where six feet of separation is not feasible.”

The order will run for two weeks. Using CARES act funding, the city will provide masks at community centers and to other social service agencies who can help with distribution.

Those exempt from the mask requirement are, according to the mayor’s office:

Also announced Friday, a previous Lucas order placing 50% capacity limits will be eliminated, except for taverns and bars. Lucas said the focus is on preventing the spread of the virus through mask usage, hand washing and maintaining social distancing.

Similar to Lucas’s orders shutting down businesses and placing restrictions on occupancy, the mask rule will be enforced by the city health department based on complaints.

“We don’t want anyone stopped on the street,” Lucas said.

Concerned employees or customers can call the city’s 311 line to report non-compliant businesses. In outdoor gatherings, the public will be encouraged, but not required to wear masks.

City health director Rex Archer said Friday that the change will be an adjustment. He said the city will not be immediately citing business who allow customers in without masks while individuals and businesses are still trying to get them.

For weeks, Kansas City has encouraged people to wear masks, and under its emergency order, it allows businesses to turn away those who don’t. Restaurant servers, bartenders, barbers and other personal service workers must wear masks when they’re with customers.

The federal Centers for Disease Control recommends the use of face coverings in public settings because a person who contracted COVID-19 but has no symptoms could still be contagious. The use of a mask, the CDC says, helps prevent those people from spreading the virus to others.

REGIONAL PARTNERS
Lucas and Archer have recently indicated their support of a mask requirement.

Archer said Friday that states requiring masks have seen a 12% decrease in cases. He said Kansas City is in its second wave of the virus.

“The issue really is I can’t infect you if I’ve got a mask on, and you can’t infect me if you’ve got a mask on,” he said.

In an earlier news conference Friday morning, Lucas said he planned to meet with regional leaders to discuss a collective response to the pandemic. He said he hoped other leaders would at the very least encourage mask use among residents.

“We will take every step possible to keep people safe here. I think wearing masks is one reasonable step in that direction,” Lucas said. “We don’t live on an island in Kansas City.”

One of those regional partners joined Lucas on Friday, David Alvey, mayor and CEO of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas.

Alvey and Alan Greiner, chief medical officer for the county health department, expressed their support for Kansas City’s order and said a similar order would be announced in Wyandotte County.

Alvey said such orders are necessary to allow communities to continue to reopen without seeing a spike in coronavirus cases and deaths.

“We want to continue to reopen Wyandotte County. Our best opportunity to continue to relax restrictions is for us to take necessary simple measures like wearing a mask, washing our hands, maintaining social distancing, avoiding large gatherings,” Alvey said. “If we get those simple things we can continue to get back to business.

“If we don’t continue to stop the virus, the virus will stop us.”

Incorrect. This is the problem, two-party thinking. Think rationally and without regard to party or what some ideology expects you to.

Luckily we have a historian named John McNeill who has a fascist score based on a number of traits. I've added my own Trump scores next to them. Where would you put him?
1. Hyper-nationalism. CHECK CHECK
2. Militarism. CHECK
3. Glorification of violence and readiness to use it in politics. CHECK CHECK CHECK
4. Fetishization of youth. NOT REALLY
5. Fetishization of masculinity. CHECK CHECK CHECK
6. Leader cult. CHECK CHECK
7. Lost-golden-age syndrome. CHECK CHECK
8. Self-definition by opposition. CHECK CHECK CHECK
9. Mass mobilization and mass party. CHECK
10. Hierarchical party structure and tendency to purge the disloyal. CHECK CHECK CHECK
11. Theatricality. CHECK CHECK CHECK CHECK CHECK CHECK CHECK

What do (I assume) BLM rioters taking down a statue have to do with world government organizations running a sinister plot to take people away in boxcars after injecting them with mind control vaccines? Oh, but ONLY after "testing them" by putting out a directive to wear masks?

"Mmmm.... yessss... after they wear their masks there will be no stopping us! Operation World Domination will be a huge success! Muhahahahaha.... WAIT! Aw fuck, a bunch of Americans got too smart for us and are refusing to wear their masks unless store managers tell them to! God damn it. Well, it was fun, but it looks like we've been foiled!"

You've gone off the deep end, dude.

The deep end, huh?



When Marxist mobs are not busting down gates to private property to "protest," i'll consider swimming elsewhere.

You ALWAYS think it can't happen...until it actually happens. It's like a tornado.

We're not talking about BLM rioters. We're talking about wearing masks during a pandemic.
