"Given we are still in the midst of a pandemic that doesn't show any signs of being over anytime soon, even if the vaccine is distributed by mid summer, how can this city, the PD, be planning a parade for the chiefs for mid-February if the chiefs win the Super Bowl?
"The city is planning the parade for that time and the PD has told all employees there is no time off for that period of time because of the planned parade. Isn't that a bit hypocritical from the Kansas City?
"Masks, come on a bunch of drunk fans and football players together celebrating, masks wont be worn, and social distancing, are you kidding me? We live in a city that mandates masks and social distancing, which I am fine with, but how can you plan a parade and tell businesses they can only operate at 50% capacity and have to be shut down by 10? Someone needs to answer: How this is not double talk from the city."
