We previously reported that mask mandates are starting to pop up around the country despite cases not coming anywhere near pandemic levels (as of the writing of this post).
An Atlanta college has imposed a mask mandate, Rutgers University in New Jersey is imposing a vaccine mandate, and now hospitalization systems are reinstating mask-wearing demands for staff, patients, and visitors.
New York-based United Health Services is reinstating its masking policy that was effective August 23, 2023.
“Because of an uptick in COVID-19 cases, masks are once again required in all clinical areas at UHS Wilson Medical Center, UHS Binghamton General Hospital, UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital and UHS Delaware Valley Hospital, as well as primary and specialty care sites,” UHS wrote in an announcement on its website.
“The new policy is in effect immediately for all patients, visitors, employees, medical staff, volunteers, students and vendors,” the statement continued.
Several other health systems are imposing mask mandates as well.
President Biden wants more money for a vaccine and hinted at another mandate.
“As a matter of fact, I signed off this morning on a proposal we have to present to the Congress a request for additional funding for a new vaccine that is ne- — necessary — that works,” Biden said to reporters. “And tentatively — not decided finally yet — tentatively, it is recommended that — it will likely be recommended that everybody get it no matter whether they’ve gotten it before or not.”
Now, covidians are taking to the streets protesting that people return to mandatory mask-wearing.
A man was counter-protesting a group of protestors demanding masks be mandated peacefully with a sign until two of the mask wearers violently attacked him.
The other covidians just stood there and watched making no attempt to separate them.
In Vancouver, Canada, protesters demanding mandatory masks physically attack a man over his sign

Think that is only happening in Canada. The video below reportedly took place at a Costco in Utah.
Meet Elizabeth Gray. The purple haired woman shrieking at a stranger in Costco- allegedly over masks.
She’s now running for American Fork City Council in Utah.
She seems stable… pic.twitter.com/c9kvYXFG9b
