Del Beccaro: COVID taught us that money talks in California on masks and mandates
In California, COVID mandate rules bend are bent for those with money and influence while the school children still remain masked indoors.
For 22 months now, Gov. Gavin Newsom has claimed that there is a state of emergency in California because of COVID. According to the applicable law, an emergency is defined as the “existence of conditions of disaster or of extreme peril to the safety of persons and property within the state caused by conditions such as air pollution, fire, flood, storm, epidemic . . . causing a ‘state of war emergency,’ which, by reason of their magnitude, are or are likely to be beyond the control of the services, personnel, equipment, and facilities of any single county, city and county…”
No one who watched the Super Bowl this month could logically conclude that a state of emergency still exists throughout California. Indeed, many questioned whether that legal definition of an “emergency” ever existed. The absence of masks at the game received nearly as much press as the outcome of the game.
