Reinstated Mask Mandates
Here we go again

U.S. asks court to reverse order lifting airplane mask...

Those flying in or out of the United States may soon have to put their masks back on, after the Department of Justice filed an appeal of an April decision that ended the unpopular mask mandate on planes and public transit.

The Centers for Disease Control had first implemented the mandate in February 2021 amid rising COVID cases, but as the number of cases started to drastically decline the mandate became unpopular among both passengers and crew members.

In fact, during a Senate hearing about the financial support airlines received in 2020 and 2021, American Airlines CEO Doug Parker and Southwest CEO Gary Kelly spoke out against the mandate.

'I think the case is very strong that masks don't add very much, if anything, in the air cabin environment,' Kelly said at the hearing in December. 'It is very safe and very high quality compared to any other indoor setting.'

Both he and Parker pointed out that airlines improved airflow on board their planes in the wake of the pandemic, noting that high-grade HEPA air filters on planes capture almost all airborne contamination and the cabin air is often exchanged with fresh air from outside.

'I concur,' said Parker, according to CNN. 'An aircraft is the safest place you can be.

'It's true of all of our aircrafts - they all have the same HEPA filters and airflow.'

Federal Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally struck down the pandemic-era mandate on April 18, ruling that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention failed to justify why such a mandate was necessary as COVID cases were declining - and did not follow proper rulemaking.

She said that the CDC had exceeded its authority with the mandate, had not sought public comment about it and did not adequately explain its decisions.

But , Reuters reports, the Department of Justice filed an appeal of the decision on Tuesday, writing that 'None of the district court's quarrels with the CDC order comes close to showing that the CDC has acted outside the "zone of reasonableness."'

It added in the appeal that the CDC's findings on the spread of coronavirus in early 2021 provided 'ample support for the agency's determination that there was good cause to make the order effective without delay.'

It remains unclear, though, whether the CDC would reinstate the mandate even if Mizelle's decision is overturned.

Re: Reinstated Mask Mandates
As far as I am concerned all these gutless mask pushing, drug pushing cowards can just eat shit.
Don't understand how one could be so arrogant as to dictate to other people such corporate control bullshit.
Really don't understand the massive complience and whipped-dog submission of the general population.

Re: Reinstated Mask Mandates
I made an appt to try a new eye doc, the appt. was for today. Didn’t even consider a mask, but lo and behold, all the counter ladies dressed in patterned scrubs and matching masks. They looked at me like I walked in half naked or something. Lol Told them my name and appt time, one lady was scrambling trying to find a mask for me and said umm do you have one of these? And pointed to her face, I said no, I don’t wear those. Then she said everyone has to be masked here. The lady next to her said it’s from the CDC. We’re a medical office. I said ok, well, I’ll just go somewhere else. Turned and starting leaving, then one lady said have a good day...I said you too.

So, give me a break...a place that does eye exams for glasses and contacts I wouldn’t consider some medical office that is full of sick contagious people. Medical center, ok...and CDC can kiss my ass!

Also, there wasn’t anyone else there but me when I walked in. (That I could see.)

Strange. And maybe, no wonder!

Oh well... 1800 contacts and Zenni will hopefully hook me up once again.

The masks are the sign of how stupid people are.

Stop doing business with anyone or place demanding them.

If everyone en mass just said, OK. Cancelled their flights and decided they didn't need to fly I bet things would change much more quickly.

Instead, they bend over to take it in the ass doing as they are told. Sheep everywhere.

No need to argue with these clowns, just don't participate in their little game.
