California: You May No Longer Gather Socially With Your Friends, Even Outdoors

California dictators gotta dictate

Under California’s stay-at-home order, can I gather with friends outdoors?

The answer is no, according to the state guidelines.

Previously, the state requirement for private gatherings was to keep them outdoors and small, with people from no more than three households attending. Now, if your county or region falls under the order, “all gatherings with members of other households are prohibited,” according to the state.

Here’s how Santa Clara County puts it: “You may no longer gather socially (even outdoors).”

And this is what Berkeley Health Officer Dr. Lisa Hernandez said about it: “If you have a social bubble, it is now popped.”

Does this apply to state lawmakers and bureaucrats attending fancy conferences, or the Gov dining at a fancy restaurant? Anyhow, it doesn’t sound too authoritarian, does it?

While social gatherings aren’t permitted, religious worship, protests and demonstrations are allowed but only outdoors with health protocols in place.

Just claim that every gathering is a protest.

“So this is really important to take care of your physical health, to take care of your mental health, to get the kind of exercise that is required to get us through this temporary moment,” Gov Gavin Newsome said. “This is not a permanent state. This is what many had projected. We had predicted the final surge in this pandemic. There is light at the end of the tunnel. We are a few months away from truly seeing real progress with the vaccine, real distribution, real accessibility, real availability.”

That’s what they told us in March. How’s that health when so many are out of work, losing their business, massively behind on their rent and mortgages and car payments, and more?

Many aren’t buying public officials’ ‘stay-at-home’ message. Experts say there’s a better way

….

Some 33 million Californians are now under a new regional stay-at-home order that began Sunday night, a last-ditch effort to turn the corner on an alarming rise in coronavirus cases statewide. The blunt messaging worked to bend the curve in the spring, when fear of the novel virus and the insidious ways it might spread kept many indoors. But nine months later, the words seem to have lost their meaning.

“It’s not because the public is irresponsible; it’s because they are losing trust in public health officials who put out arbitrary restrictions,” said Dr. Monica Gandhi, an infectious-disease specialist at UC San Francisco. “We are failing in our public health messaging.”

There’s definitely COVID19 fatigue. People are tired of the Dictates from government, especially with many of the government officials failing to practice what they Mandate. Mandates that don’t seem to end, ones that keep coming back. Lots of people have become lax with things like social distancing, washing hands, not touching their face, not touching other people. If wearing a mask, lots don’t bother to wear it correctly. Leaving the nose uncovered is common. It would have been a lot better early on to cajole citizens, to ask, and, quite frankly, for the GOP and Dems to work together, but, we know that the Democrats wanted to use this against President Trump. Using the authoritarian stick has created too much resistance.

    I anticipate that many of these disgustingly incompetent bureaucrats generating all these illegal restrictions are going to get their comeuppance before long. It’s going to be quite a time watching as they plead for mercy and try to blame Trump at the same time.

    This is where the federal gov’t should have stepped in making working class Americans financially whole. This pandemic is not business as usual. Not a hoax. Not the flu or a cold. Not a Chinese plot. But rather a global pandemic disrupting lives and life.

    Speaking of fascism, FL governor Ron DeSantis sent state agemts, guns drawn, to confiscate the electronics of a fired scientist for emailing that DeSantis was suppressing the real number of Covid cases in FL.
