You know COVID-19 fears are plummeting when even California Gov. Gavin Newsom is announcing a return to business as usual. But that is precisely what Newsom did on Tuesday.
“It’s reopening day,” Newsom tweeted. “No more social distancing. No more capacity limits. No more colors or county tiers. And if you’re vaccinated — no more masks. It’s a good day.”
Of course, Newsom also tooted his own horn about how California has administered “over 40 million vaccinations.” But what do you expect from a politician?
Masks have remained a point of contention among workers in California, with employers and employees squabbling over whether face coverings are still needed if you’ve been vaccinated. But the CDC has indicated they are not, and Newsom has promised to sign an executive order this week on workplace mask usage “to clear up any ambiguity.”
“California is turning the page on this pandemic, thanks to swift action by the state and the work of Californians who followed public health guidelines and got vaccinated to protect themselves and their communities,” Newsom said in a news release last week. “With nearly 40 million vaccines administered and among the lowest case rates in the nation, we are lifting the orders that impact Californians on a day-to-day basis while remaining vigilant to protect public health and safety as the pandemic persists.”
Per CDC data, nearly 72% of California adults and about 59% of all residents have received at least one dose of the vaccine. California was the first state to shut down due to COVID fears.

Not so fast. He’s told government employees to keep up his COVID19 mask, social distancing, etc. nonsense until Friday. Because Prince Gavin still needs minions
Californians apparently love taking it up the ass from this tyrannical fool
Such an evil prick. Hoping so hard he gets booted out later this year.
As my beloved aunt Gertrude used to say about evil politicians, “Fuckem all, Fuckem up the ass”. Of course, that was before they liked it. Not sure what Aunt Gertie would say today. She was smoked at the 1983 Kansas City BBQ Cook-Off. Last place. She was foul.
Newsom said California is “among the lowest case rates in the nation”.
I haven’t seen any data to support that claim.
Don’t worry, even in places where there are no mandates, there are plenty of maskholes jogging, walking alone and driving, dutifully covered.
Wow , what power….allowing free people to live free. What a novel concept…
