Even after being declared over by the President, the narrative of a never-ending COVID pandemic rages on so long as it’s beneficial to those in power.
Within just weeks, Joe Biden went from declaring the COVID pandemic over, only to then extend the COVID public health emergency until January 2023. Then, earlier this month, it was extended once again to April of next year, and just last week, the White House asked congress for another $10 billion in funding to fight COVID - as if the prior $6 trillion wasn’t enough.Now, Biden's Department of Health and Human Services is floating reinstating mask mandates as an option.
Masking and social distancing should be encouraged or even mandated once more in public in order to protect people from COVID-19 and from the possibility of suffering from "Long COVID," according to a new report from the Department of Health and Human Services.
The report, commissioned by HHS and produced by research agency Coforma, calls for a broad range of government policies to help people who continue to deal with the lingering effects of COVID. Those policies include an awareness campaign, funding for long COVID support groups, financial support for students and workers, and new health benefits for COVID victims.
Reinstating a mask mandate may be the most controversial recommendation in the report, which says ending that mandate in late 2021 and 2022 is making it harder for people with long COVID.The report stated taht "The lifting of mask mandates and indifferent attitude toward masking and social distancing typical in many public and private places further isolates people with Long COVID. As a result, policymakers should "encourage or mandate policies and protocols regarding masking and social distancing in public spaces."
There are currently no states requiring people to wear masks in public, and the CDC's federal mask mandate for airplanes and other modes of public transportation was nuked by a federal judge back in April.
