KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS BASICALLY DECLARES 2020 'YEAR OF THE MASK' AS CORONAVIRUS CRACKDOWN EMERGENCY ORDERS EXTENDED!!!
A glimpse at the future and a bold statement that will determine the course of this year from KCMO . . .
“Until there’s a widely available vaccine, COVID-19 is here to stay—with serious potential health consequences for those infected,” Mayor Quinton Lucas said in the release. “Mask-wearing, social distancing and basic hygiene continue to be the most effective way to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and we appreciate all who take their personal responsibility to protect their family, friends and neighbors seriously.”
Of course, this might or might apply to entertaining rapidly ripening middle-aged ladies at the lake.
And of course, all bets are off when it comes to protests wherein most rules don't apply if activists are "woke" in their demonstrations. To be fair, right-wing d-bags imagining "liberty" (lulz) are somehow immune to coronavirus and any impactful criticism as well.
Update tweet directly from TKC courtesy of Mayor Q:
"Order applies to indoor places of public accommodation. Although certainly recommended beyond."
