The 'other side' of the COVID in South Carolina...

[ Edited ]

I just read an article titled:

 

"No ‘germ muzzles’ allowed: South Carolina store owner defends her mask ban"

Things like this are what keep the virus going from person to person. We are never going to eradicate this thing if people don't do their part.

This is why so many support mask mandates. Sadly, we can't trust people to do the right thing for their community

My first reaction is to be glad I don’t need to shop in that area myself, but a second is to feel bad for the hospital staffs and other first responders in the area unnecessarily exposed to possible greater spread of a killer virus.  They do not have the luxury I do to stay away.

Don't think this is exclusive to SC at all.

I live in SC and the counties in my area are Mask Mandated. Signs are up outside the door you must wear a mask to enter and the mask must cover your nose and mouth.

 

A couple of bars have been caught not enforcing the law and one of them is now in jeopardy of losing their liquor license.

 

One of the counties in the upstate has numbers in the hundreds every day. Don't know what they are doing up there, but they must be having a good time.

Sounds like a deliberate provokation to get in the news and then set up a Go Fund Me site for her legal fights. People have made 100s of thousands of dollars doing that.

It's such a terrible shame, and a tragedy, that there are those, especially those in power, who have this ridiculously stupid and selfish (yes, I used those words because they DO apply!) attitude.

Wouldn't have mattered if it was left to individual governors because even the ones being lauded heros, didn't follow the rules they blathered about.  

 

So they fall into the group of the rest of the (cleaning it up here) donkeys.
