Posted on 06/30/2020 2:40:08 PM PDT by Enlightened1
Boulder County has extended its mask order indefinitely, as the county continues to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
The county also reported five more positive cases or cases that are considered probably in new data released Monday.
The extended mask order requires face coverings for every person older than 12 years old whenever in public anywhere in Boulder County that social distancing of six feet cannot be maintained.
The order had been set to expire on Tuesday, but according to a release from Boulder County Public Health, the mask order will now remain in place indefinitely.
We know its unpleasant to wear a face covering. None of us are excited to wear them. But its a small inconvenience that can save lives and our economy, Jeff Zayach, Boulder County Public Health executive director, said in a statement. Wearing face coverings in public is not a political statement; its an important tool in our toolbox to help slow the spread of this disease. If we can slow the spread, well be able to enter the Protect Your Neighbor phase which will allow us to further reopen our economy.
But the release also states the county does not have enough resources to police individual people violating the order. Instead, the release asks for the publics help in normalizing wearing masks and encouraging others to do so.
We know that some people are choosing not to wear face coverings despite being required by law, Zayach said in a statement. This is disappointing and leaves it up to the rest of us to be responsible for ourselves, our loved ones, those who could die from the disease, and the survival of our economy. Lets show the state and country that the people of Boulder County care about their community.

This insane county that has no legal authority to do this.
Of course it had. But then the economy showed unexpected signs of improving so it had to be extended.
Number of deaths please ?
At this point cases dont mean crap.
Democrats are kicking themselves they didn’t think about using a hoax pandemic to end America years ago.
The particles in engine oil are way bigger than virus particles. Would you trust mask material to be an oil filter for your engine?
A godless, stupid, all-white city where the temple is a bicycle and running shoes.
the is unreal
5 tested positives cases in a county of 300,000 .
no word on hospitalizations .
Pure panic porn.
125,000/330 million = ?
Wait, they’ve been wearing masks and it didn’t work so now they have to wear masks longer?
That is .0000167.

Come on, we all know that the order is not indefinite... the election is over the first week of November.

Mask doesnt protect me from contracting
