    Pennsylvania Tightens Mask Restrictions, Private Homes Included

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...omes-included/

    Hannah Bleau 18 Nov 2020

    Pennsylvania officials are tightening mask requirements in the Keystone State, requiring masks in instances where individuals who are not members of the same household are “present in the same space” indoors, including private residences.

    Dr. Rachel Levine, Pennsylvania’s transgender health secretary, detailed the requirements in an updated order Tuesday, explaining that the virus “continues to spread” despite the mitigation efforts implemented earlier in the year. As a result, Levine is looking to universal masking as the first line of defense, claiming that “universal face coverings, even when not clinical-level masks, have been an effective mitigation strategy to prevent and control the spread of disease.”

    His letter lists eight instances where a mask is required. The list essentially requires individuals to wear a mask in most instances, unless he or she is within their own household along with members who also reside there.

    Per the order, a mask is required “indoors or in an enclosed space, where another person or persons who are not members of the individual’s household are present in the same space, irrespective of physical distance.”

    The order does not explicitly provide an exception for gatherings at private residences. The AP also acknowledged that the order applies to private homes but added that the health secretary “acknowledged that officials are relying on voluntary compliance rather than on enforcement.”

    “Pennsylvania is making people wear masks inside their homes. Ohio is making people be home by 10:00 p.m. Vermont won’t even let you have friends over. What’s next?” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) asked.

    Levine’s order also requires those two yearsiand older to wear a mask when they are outdoors with individuals who are not members of the same household and “unable to maintain sustained physical distance.”

    Other instances a mask is required, per the order:

    As permitted in my Order Directing Mitigation Measures, dated July 15, 2020, as amended, for participation in an indoor or outdoor event, gathering, or group setting where another person or persons, who are not members of the individual’s household are present.
    Participating in indoor physical activity in a gym, fitness center or group fitness classes, where another person or persons who are not members of the individual’s household are present in the same space, irrespective of physical distance.
    Waiting in a public area for, riding on, driving or operating public transportation or paratransit or while in a taxi, private car service or ride-sharing vehicle, irrespective of physical distance.
    Obtaining services for themselves or another person or a pet from the health care sector in settings including, but not limited to, a hospital, pharmacy, medical clinic, laboratory, physician or dental office, veterinary clinic, or blood bank.
    When working in any space where food is prepared, packaged for sale, or prepared for distribution to others. I. Certain facilities—including hospitals, shelters, long-term care facilities, residential treatment facilities, and correctional facilities—may also require visitors and residents, patients, or inmates to wear face coverings even when in a living unit.

    There are few exceptions. The order exempts those with certain disabilities or conditions. The order also specifies that an individual does not have to wear a mask when they are in solitude.

    “All alternatives to wearing a face covering, including the use of a face shield, should be exhausted before an individual is excepted from this Order,” Levine’s update states.

    Levine’s order comes as Democrat leaders across the country retighten coronavirus restrictions ahead of the holiday season, even imposing limits on gatherings in private homes. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has limited gatherings in private homes to ten and has urged local governments to enforce his order.

    “The rules are only as good as the enforcement. Local governments are in charge of enforcement. There are only two fundamental truths in this situation: it’s individual discipline and it’s government enforcement. Period. End of sentence,” he said.

    “I need the local governments to enforce this,” he pleaded.

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) has also recommended Chicagoans “avoid all gatherings in private residences.”

    “Furthermore, CDPH Health Orders require that indoor gatherings within private residences be limited to six non-household members. The City has the authority to fine individuals for breaking this requirement and hosting large social gatherings in their private residences,” a November 12 press release detailing the “Protect Chicago” strategy states.

    Joe Biden (D), citing “health experts” during a Monday press conference,” suggested that Americans limit their Thanksgiving gatherings to “maximum ten people, socially distanced, wearing masks.”

    This shows just how utterly and totally and truly $#@!ed this country is, when millions of people take orders from an obviously mentally ill man, as if they were law.

    And then turn around and vote for more of the same, by the millions.

    There can be no reconciliation with people who are OK with this...they are obviously as mentally ill and maladjusted as "Dr." Levine.

    Or rather, so committed to Marxist revolution and utter destruction of anything resembling anything of the "old order" that they will follow the orders of maladjusted, barking mad, lunatics.

    And let me make something clear: Levine is not barking mad because he's a middle aged man that gets his jollies by dressing up as a woman.

    Nothing new about that particular perversion in human history, many, many examples exist.

    No, what makes him and his followers barking mad lunatics, or dangerous Marxist revolutionaries, which is to say, both, is this: he actually believes he IS a woman.

    And they expect you to believe it as well.

    And they'll kill you if you try to say otherwise.

    Dammit, me and my wife stopped watching the local news so we wouldnt have to set eyes on that creature and now the creature invades RPF. One of my close friends was over last week and I told him about the creature and he looked it up on his phone. He was in disbelief. He said "wait, people are taking orders from that, this is so f$#'ed." This all sickens me, I am just glad that we are homeschooling right now and I can tell my kids that this person is mentally ill so they never think that its normal.

    PA Officials Announce Stricter Coronavirus Restrictions: ‘Law Enforcement Will Be Stepping Up’

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...e-stepping-up/

    Hannah Bleau 23 Nov 2020

    Pennsylvania officials announced a series of additional coronavirus restrictions ahead of Thanksgiving, including the one-night suspension of alcohol sales. They are also urging residents to avoid travel and to only gather with people who reside in their respective households.

    “Today I’m announcing efforts to slow the spread of #COVID19 as cases reach critical levels,” Wolf announced.

    “They include a recommitment to school safety, protections for businesses and employees, reduced gatherings, enforcement for mask wearing, and an advisory encouraging PA’ians to stay home,” he said and continued:

    — Governor Tom Wolf (@GovernorTomWolf) November 23, 2020

    Under the newly announced restrictions, bars and restaurants will be prohibited from selling alcohol for on-site consumption the night before Thanksgiving. It goes effect at 5:00 p.m. and ends the following day at 8:00 a.m. Additionally, all indoor and outdoor events and gatherings limits have been reduced. Per the restrictions, any indoor event that can hold 0 – 2,000 people will be reduced to 10 percent of its capacity, maximum.

    Wolf’s administration is also urging residents to stay home and refrain from holding gatherings in their private residences with people outside of their immediate household.

    “Household gatherings are also advised against when attendees include non-household members as noted through the Secretary of Health’s Stay at Home Advisory,” a Monday press release read.

    The press release adds that the orders are “enforceable” and announced that law enforcement and state agencies “will be stepping up enforcement efforts, issuing citations and fines, and possibly regulatory actions for repeat offenders.”

    The release states:

    Given that this is a critical time for mitigation efforts and orders to be followed, the Wolf Administration is stepping up enforcement on the following orders:

    Out of State Travel
    Mask-wearing
    Business Safety, including telework, occupancy, cleaning, social distancing
    Restaurant Mitigation, including occupancy, masking, social distancing, self-certification
    Gathering Limits
    School Attestation and Mitigation

    Wolf repeated that sentiment in a tweet detailing the restrictions:

    Law enforcement will be stepping up efforts to enforce this #COVID19 safety plan.

    They will issue citations and fines, and possibly undertake regulatory actions for repeat offenders.

    — Governor Tom Wolf (@GovernorTomWolf) November 23, 2020

    According to the governor’s office, those who fail to heed the restrictions could face a fine between $25 and $300.

    “As Pennsylvanians, we have a responsibility to one another, to do what we can to protect each other and preserve the life we all love in this commonwealth,” Wolf said in a statement.

    “For those who refuse to do their part to protect their neighbors and communities and refuse to accept that their actions have consequences that cause pain and suffering for others, we will be stepping up enforcement of all of the public health orders Dr. Levine and I have put in place,” he warned.

    Dr. Rachel Levine, the state’s transgender Health Secretary, also said the orders will be enforced, repeating the warning in Monday’s press release.

    “Orders already in place and those announced today will be enforced, and law enforcement and state agencies will be stepping up enforcement efforts, issuing citations and fines and possible regulatory actions for repeat offenders,” Levine stated.

    The updated restrictions come on the heels of the Wolf administration’s efforts to ramp up mask enforcement, instructing residents to wear a mask in most instances, including when visiting another individual’s private residence.

    Other Democrat governors have instituted strict coronavirus restrictions in recent weeks, including New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D). Some law enforcement officers in both states have signaled that they will not enforce their edicts, particularly the restrictions limiting gatherings in private homes.
