California County Implements ‘Indoor Mask Mandate’ that Includes ‘Private Homes’


Local leaders in Santa Cruz County, California imposed a new indoor mask mandate this week that applies to all enclosed settings, including private homes and apartments.

“An indoor mask mandate is now in effect in Santa Cruz County and it covers private settings like a home. If you are getting together with others who don’t live in the same household the county says you should mask up regardless of vaccination status. Businesses are also required to follow the guidelines. You can take off your mask when eating or drinking,” reports ABC San Francisco.

The news comes as the Biden administration “suspended” its nationwide vaccine mandate on all businesses with more than 100 employees.

“On November 12, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted a motion to stay OSHA’s COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard. … The court ordered that OSHA ‘take no steps to implement or enforce’ the ETS ‘until further court order.’ While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation,” posted the agency on its official webpage.

    This is how far we have come.. I noticed yesterday at a live event in Chicago so I’m sitting there enjoying the show and a employee walks up and starts yelling at our section to put our mask on… Which we did and the show continued well we all started to notice that 85%ish of everyone ringside no mask… so our section one by one take theirs off again employee comes up and yells again I decided to ask him when he was going down there to let them know these rules he responds with they paid more for their seats so they don’t have to… Well that did not sit with me so I informed him he can get fucked. Throughout the show our sectioned remained maskless and employee left us alone. This showed me small groups are standing up to this hypocrite bullshit

    Interesting that they think they can dictate what you do in your own private home. I believe the phrase, “Go fuck yourself” isn’t used often enough.

    I find it really interesting that California is painted as this bastion of homogeneous progressive thought and action, yet Timcast alone has produced news pieces showing wildly different reactions to the COVID-19 restrictions in the state. Some counties are instituting a mask mandate that extends into private homes. Others are declaring themselves Constitutional Republic to get out from under them.

    They voted for it. They can live that way.
