TKC MUST READ!!! ABOUT LAST NIGHT: KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS SHARES BAD REVIEWS OF CORONAVIRUS PARTY DISTRICT PRECAUTIONS!!!
Last night the mayor toured local party places and found a myriad of lax COVID-19 precautions in place.
To wit . . .
THIS MORNING MAYOR Q CALLS OUT KANSAS CITY PARTY DISTRICTS FOR 'WEAK' ENFORCEMENT OF MASK MANDATES & SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES!!!
Of course, the Mayor's social media pronouncements are being met with a great deal of resistance online.
Contrarily . . .
Over the past week, critics of Mayor Quinton Lucas have galvanized a surprising level of support for a recall in a quickly growing social media group.
We'll wait and see if any legit effort springs forth from these locals angry about pandemic enforcement, but it's clear that residents have grown more critical of the mayor and his orders over the past few weeks.
And so . . .
Here's Mayor Q showing commitment to his mandates and taking to the streets in order to get an up close & personal glimpse on Kansas City hotspots failing to live up to rules . . .
More informed & KICK-ASS insiders warn us that this might be a preview of a KCMO bar shut down redux.
The setup from Mayor Q . . .
"A few thoughts from last night. Clearly, writing you now suggests I was not out that late and I was not, wrapping at about 11:30p. Many bar owners are trying and have created better physical distancing indoors and others require all to be seated. Many others, however, are not."
"Semi-covered rooftop bar spaces, in particular, were a weak spot. Several other places had what appeared to be full-fledged dance parties inside. Mask requirements for indoor places of public accommodation at least for staff were generally followed, at least when I walked in."
"One area of concern is a growing number of huge house and block parties with music blaring late into the night, non-permitted closed streets, and no adherence to rules or recommendations. An externality of regulation is unregulated bars/clubs, which we have seen in areas."
A preview of a more stringent crackdown clearly in the works . . .
"Legal and practical considerations on informal spread events. Health regs give pretty extensive authority on threats to public health, so can reach that way. That said, enforcement reality is much tougher particularly with non PD involvement."
