Default Governor Massengill Strikes Again.

Minnesota bars, restaurants to move to take-out only, gyms to close under new COVID-19 restrictions

Gov. Tim Walz is expected to announce that Minnesota bars, breweries and restaurants will be restricted to take-out and delivery only, while all indoor fitness centers will be ordered to close under a new round of coronavirus restrictions as the virus continues its rapid spread throughout the state.

According to a source in the governor's office, movie theaters, bowling alleys and other indoor entertainment venues are also set to close.

There are implications for youth sports as well: All youth and high school indoor sports will be put on pause, while outdoor sports will be allowed to continue. That means hockey arenas will be ordered closed, with exceptions for pro and college facilities

Any guesses as to how long it will be before it is discovered that lockdowns do NOTHING AT ALL to stop this virus?

Do you REALLY think, even for the briefest of seconds if that turns out to be true, you’ll hear about it?

"new cases; all time high. Contiunes to increase"

What else is increasing at the same time ????

Percentage of people now wearing masks. Mask wearing has increased in the past two months. Shouldn't the spread rates be in decline... instead of always increasing at faster rates than before

Concerning masks, I know of no minimum standards for mask efficiency or capacity to filter out germs required to market masks. The governments have mandated that you cover your face. Most "masks" that you see in stores say nothing about safety, but they mention comfort and fit. Few mention ability to filter or limit the spread of germs. And the government sets no standards. Whether it works or not, you must wear one.
These government mandates are about compliance, not safety.

So has the rest of Europe. But look at their deaths per 100k and infections per 100k. Still below the norm for Europe and they've never had a lockdown.

Here's an interesting read.

All this is more proof that the dam politicians don't care about the American people.

Elections have consequences. Perhaps people will start to realize that.

The problem is that we have literally millions of people in this country who will gladly surrender their own freedoms in order to have yours taken away. See dvarapala and his mask mandate, he will gladly wear a mask for the rest of his life, simply to see that you can't go to the store without one. Unfortunately, those with that attitude are growing exponentially, without regard for the fact that they themselves have EVERY tool at their disposal to live their lives without EVER coming into contact with an unmasked human if there is no mask mandate. It's not about them wanting to protect themselves, it's about them wanting you to be miserable because they are afraid. The whole "misery loves company" thing in full view.

I think there's a simpler explanation; Fear. Logical thought has left the building regarding the Wu Flu.

Nevermind the *actual* statistics or the fact that some asymptomatic cheetos humpin' ****nugget got run over by a bus and had his death classified as 'Covid Related.'
