Michigan mask mandate effectively DONE (and officially done July 1)

Post by bmw » Fri May 14, 2021 6:19 pm

Full details here: https://www.wzzm13.com/article/news/hea ... 12d76818cf

Summary:
-Effective tomorrow at 9 AM, all outdoor mask mandates are LIFTED
-Effective tomorrow at 9 AM, all indoor mask mandates are LIFTED for fully vaccinated people
-Effective July 1, all mask mandates of any kind are LIFTED

My immediate reaction is, about damn time!

As a practical matter, since I don't know how retailers could possibly distinguish vaccinated from non-vaccinated people, the mask mandate is basically done.

So all those anti-vaxxers who told us "The CDC doesn't know shit and they don't dictate what I do" now all of a sudden are like..."Yea the CDC tells us no masks anymore"...??? So they now believe and do what the CDC tells them??

Most stores seem to still be requiring them anyway which is fully within their rights. You still must comply with their rules or risk being forcibly removed if needed.

No one is getting forcibly removed for not wearing a mask.

I've shopped at four big box stores so far this weekend (including Costco), and so far, every customer and every employee I've come across was wearing a mask inside each store.


Using Robinhood for online equities and options trades is a terrible idea. USE A LEGITIMATE BROKER-DEALER INSTEAD! (Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Edward Jones, etc.)

So if vaccinated people are still wearing their masks, then I guess this isn't really about "following the science," is it? The government and the media got so much of the public so much more frightened than was necessary.

I'm basically just going with the flow. I've had both shots since the beginning of March. Yesterday and today, I kept a mask in my pocket. No one at the Speedway or the DQ had one on. So I didn't either. At the Kroger and going to and from my table at the restaurant, others were wearing a mask so I did too. Out of these 4 places, only the Kroger still had a sign on the door.

Now it’s peoples choice… guess what? They are choosing to do their part and wear a mask anyways. Over time it’ll lessen. Patience isn’t your strong suit.

There is a large increase of "cases" of politician and media induced mental illness in regard to covid.

I keep a mask on me and if the majority of those in a store are wearing one then I put mine on. No big deal.

That was quick. I thought MAYBE they would hold out until the middle of the week.

Note one caveat.. businesses CAN and WILL REQUIRE masks in their establishments. Kroger and Meijer will… don’t ditch those masks just yet if you’re vaccinated.
Won't last long. Money is king, and as soon as they start losing customers, those policies will change in a hurry.

It’s largest competitor was allowing unmasked people in its store. That would be Loss of business to meijer. Makes sense to ditch the mask.


If you want to defund the police. next time you’re getting robbed, help the criminal out by moving your tv into their van and give them the deed to your house. Don’t try to stop the criminal as that is social injustice

Makes zero sense to do this while people are still dying.


My mom taught me an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It's too bad Repubes don't believe in prevention for COVID, but they can deny someone water waiting in a line to vote.

Can't stay locked down and social distanced and masked forever. Eventually life has got to get back to normal.
