Barbara Ferrer and the LA Board Of Supervisor fools are ready to make you mask up again. Today's meeting was a CLUSTER-&$^#. Supervisor Sheila Kuehl called a constituent a coward on social media while Ferrer moaned about people who hate masks.
Los Angeles County is prepared to reinstate a universal indoor mask mandate starting on Friday, unless COVID-19 infections and rates of hospitalizations drop dramatically in the next few days.
Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said on Tuesday, July 26, the county is seeing declines in all of its major COVID-19 metrics, including slowing case numbers and stabilizing hospitalizations and deaths.
Ferrer said given the improvements, “we may be positioned to pause the implementation of universal masking,” but such a determination will not be made until Thursday, July 28.
If the hospital admission rate of new COVID-19 patients falls by Thursday near to the rate of 10 per 100,000 residents, it would “trigger a reassessment on the need to re-implement an indoor masking mandate.” As of last Thursday, the rate was 11.7 new admissions per 100,000 residents.
COVID-19 patients in hospitals in the county totaled 1,286, lower than the 1,299 reported last Tuesday. “We may be in a position to pause the imposition of indoor masking,” Ferrer said Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Mayor of Beverly Hills Lili Bosse explained to John & Ken why the city will not enforce a new mask mandate.
