For those still wanting to follow CDC guidelines (which are NOT law) - it says people “should” wear masks in areas where covid is straining the hospital systems. And as that is not happening (remember, hospitals need to operate at 95% full in order to turn a profit) and omicron is basically the only strain running around (and it is a cold) - it is clearly time to stop the overreaching mandates and standards.
Masks are not bringing the numbers down.
We know this because they did not stop the numbers from rising!
Wear a mask IF YOU WANT - stop projected your fear on everyone else.
