That's the message that our petty tyrant, John Bel Edwards is pushing with his new mask mandate. It seems that the Delta variant of Covid-19 is going to kill us all, and the only thing John Bell can think of is to try and force us to wear Covid-coozies.
He did bring in a bunch of medical professionals to tell us how absolutely game-changing the Delta variant is. They also told us that they were swamped, short-staffed, and exhausted they are. Yeah, that's what happens in a pandemic, and I salute the people in the wards and working the floors. But, I don't feel sorry for hospital administrators. We are now 18 months into this thing, and they should be planning a way out of oit. An organization cannot work at crisis level long-term.
I have argued before that the biggest problem with the medical community today is the depth of involvement with the government. If I were a hospital administrator, that would be one of my first priorities. But, they made their choice, let them live with it.
Still, Louisiana is again under a mask mandate.
