TKC WARNING!!! KANSAS CITY HEALTH DEPARTMENT HONCHO DR. REX WILL BE WATCHING FOR COVID CRACKDOWN VIOLATIONS DURING CHIEFS GAME!!!
Last weekend the vast majority of the Kansas City bar scene didn't pay much attention to mask and social distancing rules.
Accordingly . . .
DR. REX'S DEPT. WARNS KANSAS CITY BARS & RESTAURANTS THAT THEY'LL BE UNDER SURVEILLANCE DURING THE CHIEFS AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME!!!
Here's the backstory and more back & forth . . .
The debate is mostly pablum but the last line seems ominous . . .
"The KCMO Health Department added that it will have investigators at future events."
To be fair, TKC also wants everyone to be safe and it's not worth it to risk catching (or passing) a potentially fatal virus for the sake of a football game.
Still, public health surveillance seem ominous and locals worry that the tone of Dr. Rex and his underlings seems increasingly dictatorial following the recent Biden victory.
Normal site inspections and public awareness campaigns about risk are routine but it now seems that the "new normal" in Kansas City consists of spying and veiled threats broadcast by way of MSM comment . . . Forgive us if that doesn't seem exceptionally healthy for the future of our local democracy.
You decide . . .
