BREAKING: COVID Mask Mandates Returning!?!

( – BREAKING NOW: One of the most populated areas in the United States is on the verge of mandatory indoor masking in public spaces as early as next week due to heightened COVID transmission rates.

According to “Los Angeles County may reimpose indoor mask mandate if COVID transmissions climb” by Fox News late last night:

Los Angeles County could re-introduce its mask mandate, health officials said Thursday.

“Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said required masking indoors could come back if the county reaches the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) high transmission rates and hospital bed occupancy categories.

“‘If both hospitalization indicators, new COVID-19 admissions and the proportion of staffed in-patient beds occupied by COVID patients, surpass the threshold for high, LA County will return to universal indoor masking,’ she said.” [emphasis added]

Yesterday, “…the county reported 4,493 new COVID-19 cases and 14 new deaths.”

The Los Angeles Times adds, “The increasing rates of hospitalization — which are so rapid they are coming as a surprise to officials — raise the prospect of a return to an indoor mask mandate in L.A. County in the coming weeks, based on previously established criteria by local public health officials.” [emphasis added]
