New York Will Conduct Spot Checks On Mask Compliance

You vill comply, Comrade (looks like someone at the Democrat and Chronicle forgot to check the headline. I know how they feel, forgetting many a time)

NY won’t will conduct spot checks on masks, provides $65M for counties enforcing mandate

resistance is futile maskGov. Kathy Hochul’s office clarified that New York counties are still on the hook for enforcing the statewide mask mandate, after the governor indicated Monday that the state would be conducting “spot checks” for mandate compliance.

Hochul on Monday announced state support for localities implementing the statewide mask mandate, saying she will provide $65 million in financial support to bolster county efforts.

She also noted that New York state inspectors would conduct spot checks to monitor what’s going on with the mandate around the state.

Over a dozen New York counties were quick to say they didn’t have the health department resources to enforce the mandate, while Hochul urged businesses and residents to wear masks anyway.

Hence the $65 million

Up to $1 million to be available to smaller counties and up to $2 million for larger counties, she said. Counties that enforce the mask mandate will be eligible for the funding, according to the governor’s office.

They certainly won’t use the money for other stuff, right?

That funding could be used by counties to, for example, buy masks for stores to allow employees and customers to have masks to wear if needed, or setting up a call center where residents can report complaints, Hochul said.

Awesome! A snitch line. Will the counties be hiring COVID Fascists to travel around and go after businesses? And, I though the uber-Blue state of New York was a model for stopping the Chinese coronavirus? No?

New coronavirus cases spiked 66% in New York in the week ending Sunday, with 113,883 cases reported. The previous week had 68,591 new cases of the virus that causes COVID-19.

New York ranked third among the states where coronavirus was spreading the fastest on a per-person basis, a USA TODAY Network analysis of Johns Hopkins University data shows.

    Just think. If the media, BIG DATA, and government put this put effort into doing something like… eradicating slavery/sex trafficking in the USA. I wonder why they don’t. I’m pretty sure that modern data managers like Google/Amazon/Microsoft could throw something together to eradicate child porn from the internet. I wonder why they don’t. I’m also pretty sure that they could do something as easy as banning actual terrorist from Twitter. I wonder why they don’t. There sure are a lot of mis-placed priorities out there.

      Almost all of the human trafficking here in the USA is found in farm labor
      I am happy that you agree this is a big problem primarily in the southern parts of our country
      Teach feels differently now about how serious Covid is
      He forgets that for months while Trump was in charge he constantly referred to it as fake news. Sort of like his cheerlesding for the war in Afghanistan that he thought we were winning for years.

      What they could actually do to improve everyone’s life is to figure out where those car warranty phone calls are coming from and shut them down. I’m getting the calls in Spanish now, because as everyone knows, there are so many Spanish speakers in Vermont. Not.

    Covid is spreading quickly here in NY but fortunately because of our high vaccination rate hospitizations and per capita death rates are still below averag, about 1/3 that of some states
