Meanwhile in the Democrat hellhole of Los Angeles…
Los Angeles has reinstated a mask mandate for public transit, LAX, bus terminals, transportation hubs and ride share despite a federal order declaring Biden’s mandate unlawful.
The new mask mandate will take effect Friday.
ABC 7 reported:
Masks will again be required on all public transit within Los Angeles County, including buses, trains, taxis and ride-hailing service vehicles, under a new COVID-19 health order that will take effect Friday.
The order will also again require masks at all indoor public transportation hubs, including airports and bus terminals.
Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said Thursday the order is based on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s opinion that mask-wearing on transit remains an essential step in preventing spread of COVID-19.
“They are experts,” Ferrer told reporters during an online briefing. “They made a determination that at this point having that requirement in place is necessary for the public’s health, and that resonates with us.”
The Biden DOJ filed an appeal after a Trump-appointed judge overturned the CDC’s unlawful travel mask mandate.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday admitted forced masking on planes had nothing to do with science or keeping people from getting infected with Covid.
“The Department of Justice has indicated that they would appeal, not just because they think it’s entirely reasonable…but because they think for current and future public health crises, uh, we want to preserve that authority for the CDC to have in the future,” Psaki said.
“Our focus here was seeing what power we had to preserve,” Psaki said.
