One thought on “Orange County Mayor asking businesses to require masks indoors due to a rise in COVID cases”
The orange county Mayor was not happy when thr themebparks and businesses lifted their Mask rule and he’s been champing at the bit to get them reinstated because Gov DeSantis has effectively neutered his control.
And he want to do anything he can to gain it back.
So now he wants businesses to go back to Masks.
Fo)ow the science he kept saying.
Well CDC the ultimate authority in science said the mask mandates should be lifted.
So now it’s, follow the science… except that science.
Major face palm
