Due to Statewide Order, County Mask Ordinance No Longer In Effect

Earlier today, Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 21-102 suspending all local emergency COVID-19 orders statewide effective immediately.

The Governor’s order does not prevent businesses from instituting public health measures such as physical distancing, temperature screening, mask use, and other practices. Any business with a question about the Executive Order should contact the Governor’s Office at (850) 717-9337.

We agree with the Governor that we’re winning the pandemic war, but to me it just seems like the wrong time to pack up the ammunition.”

  1. From a healthcare perspective (not political), the Gov. DeSantis has said that since the vaccine works and the numbers are down, it should be up to the individual to take the precautions they feel are appropriate. In other words, if you feel more secure wearing a mask – especially in a crowd – do it! I have been vaccinated, and for me I feel it is time to go without a mask. Gov. DeSantis is giving you your individual rights back! Make an educated, not political choice!

  2. This is seriously disingenuous of the Chair, is subversive, and near calumnious.

    Sections 4 of both Orders allow the locals to pass ordinances in the normal course; I was wondering why they did that, considering that it is obvious to any practitioner worth her salt.

    Are they saying they’re unwilling to do that? Why haven’t they scheduled a meeting to pass an ordinance given we need “ammunition”?

    Or could it be that this person is a Baizuo, only interested in their political future instead of actually governing?

    Just a thought.

  3. There is just something about Rock Minor that seems crooked. Government parasite. I love watching their panties bunch up…

  4. Visiting the free lands of Northwest Florida numerous local restaurants we frequent have opposite signs on their store fronts advising Branch Covidian Cult members that they are not required to mask their restaurant staff and you don’t have to wear one either. Let us hope this level of sanity returns to these cowardly businesses in the Capital District. Let us also hope that the Godless faithless churches in the Capital District that used the Maskhole Mandate as a crutch to either shut down, maskhole up and anti-socially distance return to their fundamental mission, sharing the word of God. Those despicable Branch Covidian Priests, Ministers and Pastors will have to answer to a higher authority for their participation in this evil cult.

    As for the despicable Branch Covidian Cult Kommissars of the Capital District, nice try with a last minute attempt at continued panic porn as you meekly announce the end of your tyrannical no science dictates. The lies and deceit of these Cult members will continue and they will try to scare the heck out of folks continuing to site the despicable wildly politicized CDC and Pope Fauci. Don’t believe these Kommissars and their political officers. Breathe in the free air.

    Now we are waiting to see what the filthy child abusing Scruel Superintendent Hanna and the child abusing Scruel Kommissars will do about forced muzzling of the kids.

  5. “Irrespective of the Governor’s order, I hope people and businesses will continue to follow the latest CDC guidelines. We agree with the Governor that we’re winning the pandemic war, but to me it just seems like the wrong time to pack up the ammunition.”

    Note to Mr. Minor: The CDC “guidelines” (as crafted by the NaziCrats and unions) have proven to be untrustworthy, reckless, and are not supported by any scientific measure whatsoever. In fact, they are consistently in conflict with the “science”. Furthermore, science shows that face diapers are not a form of ammunition against the China Bio-Weapon Flu… unless of course you’re referring to shooting blank rounds that sound good but do nothing.

  6. Minor always loyal to the cause click those jackboots and enter stage left… you can use your mask to breathe in while you hyperventilate at this decision, but we are tired of being pawns of the CCP.

    Ron DeSantis Best Governor in America!
