Fauci: CDC looking at changing mask guidelines

Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is examining whether to reinstate mask guidance even for fully vaccinated people in public.

"This is under active consideration," Fauci told CNN anchor Jake Tapper, when asked if masks should be brought back for vaccinated Americans.

Tapper had cited CNN’s reporting, which said that the Biden administration’s top health officials are holding "preliminary conversations" on whether to urge vaccinated people to wear masks again in public. The Washington Post also reported that the talks were in a "preliminary phase and their result could be as simple as new messaging from top White House officials."

The reported conversations are occurring as the highly contagious Delta variant runs rampant in states with lower vaccination rates. Missouri, Texas and Florida are responsible for 40 percent of all new U.S. coronavirus cases, White House pandemic response coordinator Jeff Zients said last week.

Although the number of coronavirus cases is still much lower than during the peak of the pandemic, the CDC reported Thursday that weekly cases had risen by 46 percent compared to the previous seven-day period. (Read more)

I will wear my mask forever because I strongly feel they work.

I have not had a cold this year and I usually get one every year.

So no matter what other folk do, I am going to do me.

Wilson NC – Customer reports violations of coronavirus safety rules at popular Wilson restaurant

The Political Agitator’s response: Maybe this will be the one that make these restaurants follow guidelines. I’ll wait!

WILSON, N.C. — A customer traveling from Asheville reported coronavirus guideline violations at the popular Parker’s Barbecue restaurant in Wilson over the weekend.

Robert Green was in the area attending his son’s soccer tournament when he went to the restaurant to pick up food.

What he saw inside was a group of employees packed closely together behind the counter and in the kitchen without masks on.

“Let me put it this way it was a horror show,” he said. “There were a dozen people behind the counter in the kitchen area, very small kitchen area and none of them not a one was wearing a mask.” (Read More)

Can businesses refuse to serve customers who don’t wear masks?

Most businesses across the U.S. have reopened after temporary shutdown orders from state governments earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Differing requirements across cities and states are often unclear, and many people are making personal decisions about when and where to wear masks.

While many businesses are encouraging customers to wear face coverings and to adhere to social distancing guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19, some are requiring patrons to wear them.

Costco is among the retailers with such a requirement. The wholesale corporation began enforcing the policy on May 4.

About two weeks after announcing the mask requirement, a video of a Costco employee repeatedly asking a customer to leave a Colorado store went viral. The customer wasn’t wearing a face covering and said he made the choice because he “woke up in a free country.”

“We know some members may find this inconvenient or objectionable, but under the circumstances we believe the added safety is worth any inconvenience. This is not simply a matter of personal choice; a face covering protects not just the wearer, but others too,” Costco President and CEO Craig Jelinek said in a statement. “Although some may disagree with this policy or question its effectiveness, we’re choosing to err on the side of safety in our shopping environments … We believe this simple act of safety and courtesy is one that Costco members and employees can undertake together.”

What if you don’t want to wear a mask? Can you be denied service? Is it against your rights as an American citizen to be turned away?

The Political Agitator’s response: I am looking forward to this right here. Makes sense to me.

Updated at 5 p.m. ET

Walmart says shoppers must wear masks inside its stores starting Monday — the largest retailer to join a growing list of companies making face covering mandatory across the nation.

Walmart and Sam’s Club — as well as Kroger — are joining Costco, Starbucks, Best Buy, Panera Bread and others in implementing a nationwide requirement for customers to wear masks inside their stores. Walmart said it’s creating a new job of “health ambassador,” who will be specially trained to “work with customers who show up at a store without a face covering to try and find a solution.” (Read more)

Abrams BBQ Pinetops NC – None Of The Workers Had On A Mask Saturday June 27, 2020

I thought I had posted an article on my Blog from my phone yesterday but I don’t see it. I am in Facebook Jail until July 3 after a 30 day stay and can’t post straight to Facebook or Comment.

I stopped by Abrams yesterday around 4 PM and the workers had no mask. I asked 1 worker was they required to wear mask and they said yes but it was hard to hear in the drive thru. I left.

I had not been in Arbys in Tarboro until yesterday. I went there and all the workers had on a mask.

I have been receiving text messages about some folk going in this morning Sunday and they have posted their findings that the workers were not wearing a mask.

Thank You Sheriff Paula Stokes Dance Because I Had Called My Sheriff And Told Him That He Didn’t Need To Get Into That Mess With These Sheriffs Playing Politics

The Political Agitator’s response: I posted this on June 25 Nash County – Damn I Was Shocked To See Sheriff Keith Stone Come On My TV Saying He Will Not Enforce Masks While I Work In Nash County

Thank you Sheriff Paula Stokes Dance you are always on point!

Someone commented on a shared post that they didn’t feel that my post clearing up the responsibility of law enforcement and mask was professional. Specifically the “Wyatt-Earp-Cowboy-Statement” phrase I used.

Let me suggest that if you want the watered down version that you follow me on my professional page. The professional version is on that page. This page is my personal page and I said what I said. And meant every word down to the last drop.

Y’all have a great weekend.

Wear ya mask
Wash ya hand

As I continue to get messages about why I’m not enforcing folks to wear mask let me see if I can explain a little clearer. The Executive Order DOES NOT give a Sheriff or any law enforcement officer the authority to enforce or force an individual to wear a mask. Therefore, if we did we would be in violation of a persons individual constitutional rights and could be sued. The EO simply gives law enforcement the authority to fine BUSINESSES that don’t adhere to practices that can safely maintain social distancing and/or policies such as customers being required to wear a mask in the interest of public health safety due to COVID-19.

So these Wyatt-Earp-Cowboy- Statements by some officials saying they “will not “ enforce the order to make people wear mask is nothing but chest beating hot air…because they don’t have the authority to do so in the first place!

If a person enters a business that requires a mask without one and they are requested to leave by said business but refuses to do so…then they could be charged criminally with trespassing.

I hope this explains it a little better.

Wear ya mask
Wash ya hands

In 2 a.m. vote, NC lawmakers target coronavirus measure on wearing masks in public

imageN.C. Governor announces executive orders requiring the wearing of protective COVID face coverings and extends his phase 2 order Wednesday, June 24, 2020. BY WUNC-TV


A 2 a.m. vote Friday in the North Carolina Senate has some politicians questioning if it’s going to be illegal for people to wear face masks in public, starting in a little more than a month.

“We purposefully took out a provision that would have made it legal, and that just seems wrong to me in the middle of a pandemic,” Democratic Sen. Natasha Marcus of Mecklenburg County said.

The early-morning vote in the Senate came on the same day that Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s statewide order making mask-wearing mandatory in public was set to go into effect. Republican Senate leader Phil Berger has strongly criticized that order, which will begin at 5 p.m. Friday. (Read more)

Study: Masks Fail to Filter Virus in Coughing COVID-19 Patients

— About that mask recommendation…

by Molly Walker, Associate Editor, MedPage Today April 6, 2020

A pattern of blue surgical masks on a pink background

A small study from South Korea cast doubt on the ability of surgical or cotton face masks to effectively prevent dissemination of COVID-19 coronavirus from the coughs of infected patients.

Median viral loads did not differ significantly when comparing coughing samples of COVID-19 patients without a mask, with a surgical mask, and with a cloth mask, suggesting these masks were ineffective at filtering SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, reported Sung-Han Kim, MD, of University of Ulsan College of Medicine in Seoul, South Korea, and colleagues.

In a letter published in Annals of Internal Medicine, they cited the size of viral particles as a possible reason for masks’ poor ability to filter the virus, despite their effectiveness against other respiratory infections. In particular, prior studies found surgical masks, as well as N95 respirators (Read more)

Coronavirus – No Mask When Out Shopping & Attending Funerals

I find it very interesting with all of these cases in Tarboro 48 and Pinetops 19 and folk ain’t wearing masks.

There have been 2 deaths in Tarboro and 1 in Pinetops.

You can sanitize your home, your church, your place of employment and everywhere but the problem is the folk coming and going being around folk who are positive and may not even know it.

So what is it going to take for folk to take this coronavirus serious?

Mask – I Donated 50 To Edgecombe County Jail On Yesterday


10 County per package

I donated 50 to the jail on yesterday. Why? Because the inmates are in jail and do not have access to the outside. What folk need to understand is that the jail could be a serious thing if mask are not available. Now I have seen some posts about the inmates having masks and not the Detention Officers. Well what folk need to understand that is that to have a jail full of unhappy inmates about a mask could create a mess. I hope my 50 will help so that all will be able to have one realizing that some will have to come from somewhere else.

You see this is why I did a post earlier


Prayer is Great!

If you have resources then donate some PPE for folk on the front line.

And in your church.

And in your circle.

Let folk know where things are.

Now ain’t the time to be selfish.

So what are you doing other than praying. Prayer without works is … I am so glad that I have never been selfish and I was doing what I do before there was a Pandemic in Edgecombe County. Now Run & Tell That! Curmilus Butch Dancy II 2020
