MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS DEMANDS KANSAS CITY TO WEAR MASKS AMID WORSENING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC!!!
Just now, Mayor Quinton Lucas announced a bold dress code edict in line with elected officials across the nations.
KANSAS CITY HAS MOSTLY GIVEN UP ON MASKS BUT NOW MAYOR QUINTON LOCAL REQUIRES FACE COVERING IN ORDER TO THWART THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS!!!
Here's the word:
“Our country’s leading health and scientific experts have indicated in no uncertain terms that mask-wearing is the most effective way to curb the spread of COVID-19,” said Mayor Lucas. “Case numbers in Kansas City continue to rise, and we are taking all steps we can to ensure public health and safety. I know wearing masks can be uncomfortable, but this is a necessary step to ensure we can save lives and keep our economy open. We wear masks to protect our loved ones, those around us, and their loved ones.”
“We are keeping a close watch on our cases and hospitalizations, but know widespread mask-use is one essential way to slow COVID-19 and keep Kansas City businesses open,” said Dr. Archer. “It’s up to us. Let’s learn from Texas and Florida and what’s happening there now. Their mitigations and closures weren’t as quickly adopted or embraced. Now their case counts are rising at a disturbing rate and they’ve had to slow their reopening plans.”
This move is likely to be met with resistance despite VERY LITTLE RISK FROM WEARING MASKS and evidence from scientists that even rudimentary masks HELP curb the spread of the virus.
And so we ask our blog community . . .
Will you obey the mask requirement???
So far there's no word about a penalty for disobeying the "order" but it's unlikely residents will be locked up for disobeying.
