We’d thought we’d been up to the point of arguing over the COVID-19 booster shot being mandates, but we’re back to indoor mask mandates in California, where coronavirus cases are rising. Gov. Gavin Newsom is reimposing the statewide mask mandate Wednesday and it will run through at least January 15.
Breaking News: California is reinstating a statewide indoor mask mandate, as the Omicron variant rapidly spreads and Covid cases rise. The mandate will go into effect on Wednesday and will remain until at least Jan. 15, state officials said on Monday. https://t.co/8FRzHNpilf

Wednesday is strategically brilliant. It will catch the virus completely off guard.

It’s fine. It’s only 15 days to slow the spread

Glad to be freed of this nonsense for the better part of a year since leaving 😂

People think if they just comply it'll be over. It WILL NEVER END. RESIST THE SYSTEM.

We’ve not been freed from this since the war began almost two years ago now. No one will even notice Wednesday’s mandate because it’s no different. It’s amazing what people will allow themselves to become conditioned to forfeiting.

Ah yes, because masks have worked from the beginning. If they really worked you would think they worked the first 18+ months. Oh wait. 🙃

They never want this to end.

Californians will be required to wear bubble wrap soon at this rate.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein is on board:
As the nation nears 800,000 COVID deaths and the omicron variant spreads, California's decision to reinstate an indoor mask mandate makes sense. Vaccinations, boosters and masks can protect us this holiday season, but we must stay alert if we're going to avoid another spike.
