You will often hear that sheriffs are one of the most important local officials.
On June 15th, California as a while lifted it’s statewide mask mandates and the state started a path to reopen entirely.
Now, despite advisory from the CDC, PA county has updated orders. The order requires that vaccinated and unvaccinated persons wear masks inside.
The LA county sheriff will not be enforcing such ludicrous rules. Instead the department has asked residents to voluntarily comply.
“Forcing the vaccinated and those who already contracted COVID-19 to wear face masks indoors is not backed by science and contradicts the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.” Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.
The CDC has expressed on many occasions that vaccinated persons are protected from the virus including the Delta variant. While vaccinated persons may (rarely) be able to contract the strain, the effects will not lead to death or hospitalization in most circumstances.
