Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon has officially announced the end of numerous lockdown measures and lifted the mask mandate for his state, following in the footsteps of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and others who have also chosen to stop the nonsense.
Gordon, who is a Republican, stated that the mask mandate would be lifted and businesses, like restaurants, movie theaters, bars, and gyms, would be able to open up at full capacity on March 16.
This is excellent news for Americans, especially small business owners, who had been devastated by lockdown measures for the past 12 months.
Notably, Gordon is still leaving some pandemic measures in place, such as a mask mandate on all elementary through high schools, according to CNN. Gordon touted the state’s vaccination efforts for his decision to lift regulations.
“I thank the people of Wyoming for their commitment to keeping one another safe throughout this pandemic,” Gordon said in a press release. “It is through their efforts that we have kept our schools and businesses operating and our economy moving forward. I ask all Wyoming citizens to continue to take personal responsibility for their actions and stay diligent as we look ahead to the warmer months and to the safe resumption of our traditional spring and summer activities.”
Gordon urged “Wyomingites to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces and to follow the best practices adopted by any business they visit to slow the spread of the virus.”
“Wyoming is one of the few states in the country that kept students learning in the classroom for the entire school year. We made sacrifices, but the earlier orders saved lives. We persevered,” Gordon went on to say. “With this approach we can have graduations, proms and a great end to the school year by keeping schools open. Especially since our children will not have the chance to be vaccinated this spring.”
So what do leftists who were hoping to continue milking this coronavirus thing as an opportunity to usurp power think of all this? Well, President Biden recently mocked states for opening up and tossing out mask mandates as exhibiting “Neanderthal thinking,” a statement that makes as much sense as anything else coming from this kook.
At the end of the day, plenty of data has emerged that shows masks don’t make that much of a difference in slowing or stopping the spread of the coronavirus. So what’s the point?
Let’s get back to normal.
