COVID Today: California’s Mandate, Saying No To Masks, SEIU Protests

California had already mandated that all state workers and those in health care field, even private businesses, either get the vaccine or be subjected to weekly/bi-weekly tests. Now

California first in nation to mandate vaccinations for health care workers

California today issued the first order in the nation that requires COVID-19 vaccinations for health care workers, allowing only for religious or rare medical exemptions.

Employees of hospitals, nursing homes, doctors’ offices, clinics and other medical facilities have until Sept. 30 to get at least one dose of the vaccination, under the new order issued by Dr. Tomás J. Aragón, California’s public health officer. In the meantime, they must either be vaccinated or undergo mandatory weekly testing, under the state’s previous order issued last week.

California also ordered visitors to hospitals, skilled nursing homes and facilities for the developmentally disabled to be fully vaccinated or show a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours. The order applies only to indoor visits and goes into effect on Wednesday.

The new requirement for medical workers tightens Gov. Gavin Newsom’s move last week to require health care workers and state employees to be vaccinated or submit to weekly testing.

State health officials were not immediately available to explain why the requirements for health care workers won’t go into effect until the end of September.

That’s a good question: if this is so important, why the end of September, especially when this is just about one simple dose. How does that help? Unless it is the Johnson and Johnson, you need two doses. One dose of Pfizer or Moderna means nothing. If they get it on Sept 30th, they’ll have to wait weeks to get the 2nd, then 14 days before considered fully vaccinated. The difference here, to be clear, is that all healthcare workers must be vaccinated. No testing. Vaccinated. Reports say around 23% of healthcare employees are refusing to get vaccinated. I wonder why people who understand healthcare are resistant? I wonder what happens when lots of healthcare workers, in a system that is already shortstaffed, leave.

But, hey, SEIU is protesting

(SacBee) SEIU Local 1000 filed an unfair labor practice charge against CalHR this week with the Public Employment Relations Board, alleging that Newsom’s administration failed to meet and confer with the union prior to implementing the new rule.

“We’re still protesting the fact that they’re violating our contract,” said Richard Louis Brown, the president. “That’s what the State of California is doing, and that is what the State of California has done under the leadership of this governor.”

The unfair labor practice charge states that CalHR “dodged its legal obligations by unilaterally imposing a deadline.”

Well, that’s interesting. The State can impose all sorts of mandates on citizens, but, not SEIU members, unless they renegotiate the contract? Piss off. You’re government workers. Most of you voted for this. Suck it up.

Elko County rejects governor’s mask mandate

Elko County Commissioners voted Wednesday against complying with Gov. Steve Sisolak’s latest mask mandate and for blocking door-to-door vaccine solicitations, but their actions don’t cover the incorporated cities of Elko, Carlin, Wells and West Wendover.

On the mask mandate, Commissioner Rex Steninger said that the “county must refuse to comply this time. Our local businesses depend upon us refusing. Our emotional and physical well-being of our residents depends on us refusing.”

His motion directed county offices and agents to refuse to enforce the mandate, but he said that those who want to wear masks should feel comfortable doing so.

Could this be the start of a movement, similar to areas declaring themselves 2nd Amendment sanctuaries? Especially since the vast majority of masks do not work.

    When I saw my doctor for my covid diagnosis he went on and on about the masks he was forced to wear. He said the fibers in the masks are causing more harm than they are good as healthcare workers are going to find Lung problems associated with wearing poorly constructed face masks that leak fibers into your lungs for 8-12 hours per day.

    He says everyone is complaining of runny noses, sore throats and various respiratory problems but that the powers that be tell them to go fuk themselves. When we left he shook my hand saying I don’t give a shit what the hospital says. Your supposed to bump elbows at least in this sorry excuse for a state.

    I recommend you wear masks very minimally. Take them off every chance you get. They are leaking fibers into your lungs and they will not let you wear a hand made mask but rather the shitty, cheap assed masks made by china that pretend to protect you. You know those ones your hand you.

    I went to the hospital with an N-95 mask and was told I could not wear it but instead was handed a cheap assed mask that you could shake and see the fibers floating in the sunlight.

    No thanks. I replaced it as soon as I was screened only to be told to remove my N-95 repeatedly by staff. Insane.

      In fact, in almost all cases, mask wearing reduced the inhalation of particulates compared to wearing no masks.

      Where did you get your information on masks?

      And since the standard right-wing position is that masks cannot possible stop the tiny SARS-CoV-2 virus particles, why wear a mask at all?

      • david7134 says:

        That is a great study Jeff. Now I know that I need a mask to reduce the amount of microplastics that I encounter. Perhaps you can come up with a study that shows reduction in tendency to viral infection.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          After showing that his buddy was talking out his arse, Doogie Hoser DC now wants a mask study that reduces viral infections!

          Here’s one.

          And another.

          And one more.

          There are hundreds.

          • david7134 says:

            Good for you Jeff. You found three meaningless article that do nothing but talk shit. Why don’t you interpret the math in the second article. You can’t.

            Everything Rimjob posts is meaningless because the dipshit pretty much leads a meaningless existence.

            Bwaha! Lolgf

            Doogie Hoser, dipshit that he is, was given what he requested and now whines like a whiny titty baby.

            Teach’s “lapdog”, dipshit that they are, continues his mental masturbation.

            What didn’t you understand regarding the second study?


          • drowningpuppies says:

            The problem isn’t that Rimjob can’t read. The problem isn’t even that Rimjob can’t think. The problem is that Rimjob, dipshit that he is, doesn’t know what thinking is; he confuses it with feeling.

            (Apologies to Dr. Sowell)

            Bwaha! Lolgfy

            Notice that I asked him to explain the stats in a referenced paper. He can’t do it. And this clown goes around writing medical papers for a living.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Teach, his “lapdog”, and The Chiropractor, dipshits that they are, have nothing to add.

            Hey Chiro, what don’t you understand from the paper, ORs?

            Bottom line Chiro is that masks work. Are all nuCons as stupid, vile and dishonest as you dipshits or just the ones here? Nah. All nuCons are stupid, vile and dishonest.

        Your study by Lu Li, Xiaoli Zhao, […], and Kang Song

        ‘What we are breathing through our mouth and nose is actually hazardous waste’: Scientists find evidence of toxic chemicals in some face masks

        Preliminary analysis found toxic chemicals in some masks
        These include known allergens and carcinogens as well as controlled substances
        Masks intended for use by the general public are not deemed to be PPE
        Therefore, they do not have to meet the standards of masks worn by doctors

        85% of all masks made worldwide come from China and concerns have been raised over substandard manufacturing and opaque supply chains

  2. est1950 says:

    In recent weeks, Spain, the Netherlands, Turkey and Australia have returned Chinese-bought masks, leading the Chinese government to suggest that nations have not “double checked” the products before purchasing.

    Healthcare professionals are expressing concerns about a portion of the 1.2 million medical masks that were shipped from China

    The price for some Chinese-made surgical masks has recently dropped to as low as 1 cent, compared with about 10 to 15 cents for American masks

    Potentially toxic masks distributed in schools and daycares in Quebec
    Social Sharing
    Grey and blue SNN200642 masks should no longer be used, warn Quebec and Ottawa

    Countries reject China pandemic product batches

    In other words. Make your own mask. Put one of those carbon filters in it and your 10x’s more likely to keep your lungs healthy than wearing the crap the government is passing off on its own healthcare workers. IE…anything coming from CHINA which is still about 85 percent of the worlds production of PPE.
