    NBC Connecticut ^ | Published May 13, 2021 | Angela Fortuna •
    Governor Ned Lamont on Thursday said on May 19, the state would follow CDC recommendations and not require mask wearing for fully vaccinated residents in most instances. Gov. Ned Lamont said Connecticut is following CDC guidance in ending the indoor mask mandate for people who are fully vaccinated starting May 19. The decision comes after the CDC announced Thursday that fully vaccinated people can stop wearing masks in most indoor settings. The state of Connecticut is getting ready to lift most remaining COVID-related restrictions that have been in place since the beginning of the pandemic and more people are eligible...

    Will Americans ever be able to trust the CDC again after the agency mismanaged, lied, and bent to politics of this moment?No other government agency has accelerated its own demise in the last year faster than the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s stuffed to the brim with scientists and doctors and virologists, yet instead of rising to the occasion of a global pandemic, the bureaucracy shattered its reputation and credibility beyond repair.As Americans slowly learned more about the novel virus and its risks over the course of the last year, they looked to the CDC for expert...

    Pandemic-weary New Yorkers had their hopes deflated Thursday when Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he wasn’t ready to ease the state’s mask mandate — even though the feds gave the green light for vaccinated Americans to finally show their faces and gather indoors again. In a late-afternoon statement, Cuomo said he and Health Commissioner Howard Zucker had yet to decide if the Empire State would adopt newly announced guidelines from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “In New York, we have always relied on the facts and the science to guide us throughout the worst of this pandemic and...

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is set to issue new guidance Thursday telling people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 that they can safely stop wearing masks indoors in most places, a report said Thursday. The guidance will still encourage wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters — but is expected to ease restrictions for reopening workplaces and schools, a source told the Associated Press

    Freedom for the faces of millions of the United Kingdom’s loyal subjects is near. Following a sharp fall in new coronavirus infections., it is expected the wearing masks in shops and offices as well as social distancing will be relaxed starting on June 21. First, the UK will attempt some lockdown easing on Monday, May 17 that will include dining and drinking indoors and reopening movie theaters. In addition, going mask-less will get its first test at secondary schools and colleges where students will no longer be required to wear face coverings in classrooms or communal areas.

    There is a “good chance” that England’s “one metre plus” COVID-19 social distancing rule can be scrapped on June 21, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday. “I think we’ve got a good chance, a good chance of being able to dispense with the one metre plus,” Johnson told reporters during a campaign visit to Hartlepool, referring to the social distancing rules currently in force in England. On Sunday, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said “some safeguards” may stay in place when legal restrictions end on June 21, such as continued use of masks and physical distancing. Last month, government...

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said there is a “good chance” that social distancing will end next month, as England is set to come out of restrictions on June 21st. Prime Minister Johnson would not, however, fully commit to the end of the one-metre rule because it would be “dependent on the data” and “we can’t say it categorically yet”.

    ATLANTA, GA—CDC officials have released official guidelines and recommendations for activity during the pandemic. At the top of the list is a request for people to stop giving them wedgies every time they pass them on the street. "You all need to stop this immature behavior right now!" said CDC official Mortimer Herbie Jr. as he adjusted his glasses and retainer. "Also, stop shoving us in lockers and giving us swirlies and grabbing us by our ankles and shaking us upside down until our lunch money falls out! This is NOT cool you guys!"

    How many times have we seen it from the liberal media? They detail a large gathering, with the insufferable comment “no masks.” The mask has been the crutch for the panic peddlers, something they think offers a total shield against COVID. Wrong. It doesn’t. I wore a mask and I still contracted the virus last November. Second, the so-called experts led by Dr. Anthony Fauci and his crew have clung to mask-wearing even for those who have been vaccinated which is nothing but theater. If we go down the list, the experts have been wrong on just about everything. Contracting...

    Data not dates? Despite new figures showing the daily number of COVID-19 deaths in the UK dropping below those from road accidents, the government is still refusing to accelerate the lifting of lockdown restrictions. The average number of daily deaths now stands at 25 a day with COVID cases dropping 94 per cent from the peak. On Monday, the UK recorded just four total deaths. “By comparison, the UK records an average of around five deaths from road accidents daily,” reports the Telegraph. The government has continually insisted it will prioritize “data not dates” in deciding when the measures should...

    Social distancing, mask mandates, and lockdowns have put civil society on ice. Church congregations either do not meet, “meet” in socially distancing congregations, or try to fellowship over video conferencing. Many schools are still closed, still trying to replace face-to-face learning with farcical “distance learning.” Public sporting events have been almost nonexistent. Many small businesses have gone under, and many of the survivors are struggling. Most remaining social interaction has been pushed to social media, which at its best is a weak substitute for face-to-face human interaction. Even ardent supporters of mask-wearing can’t deny that they stifle communication, verbal and...

    Posh dinners at a cost of €490 euros per head as rest of Paris struggles under lockdown. Even as Parisians continue to struggle under lockdown, members of the French elite, potentially including government ministers, have been caught attending rulebreaking secret restaurants in the French capital. French TV channel M6 aired secretly recorded footage of clandestine dinners taking place at an “underground restaurant located in a beautiful part” of Paris. The clip shows guests at the restaurant without masks openly kissing each other and violating social distancing rules. There also appears to be no restrictions on the number of guests allowed....

In the midst of relaxation of CCP (Chinese...

    In his first prime time address to the nation President Joe Biden boosted American morale by promising “we may be able to allow small July 4th gatherings, but only if everyone behaves between now and then. This means get your vaccination, wear your mask, keep your distance, wash your hands, and wait for our permission to mingle with other appropriately obedient and deserving family members, friends, and neighbors.” The President cautioned that “we must not lapse into old habits of going where we want whenever we want and with whoever we choose. We have been advised by New York University...

    National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that current coronavirus levels of 60,000 to 70,000 new cases per day were unacceptable. Therefore, he argued for pulling back masking and the physical distancing “carefully and slowly.”
