  1. The wonders of a self policed mandatory mask order with no punishment for failure to comply.
    This is the new normal for quite a while at least. People need to get used to it.

  2. Social distancing policies should be enforced in a grocery store but not at BLM protests? Masks should be worn by whites only? (Oh wait never mind) For hotels 24 hours between guests yet restaurants can seat guests immediately? In Mult county you can play tennis in LC you can’t? The question becomes why are we complying with anything the state mandates?

  3. Social distancing policies can be enforced in a grocery store as that is private property. A BLM protest is usually on public property and so it would be up to the local authorities to enforce their policies…

    Masks should be worn by everyone. Why there are exceptions for those under 12 I don’t know. I don’t think that the Coronavirus refuses to infect people under 12.
    Yes there are differences between county rules, yes some things don’t make sense…

    That doesn’t mean that we should ignore all state rules, laws,… That way madness (or at least the III%er brand of madness) lies.

  4. Very true Adam but your proving my point. What you just outlined is a mask policy contingent upon a highly contagious virus knowing when your on private property and whether or not your under 12. Are you really suggesting we arrest people who ignore ineffective rules which make no sense? Sounds a bit harsh.
