Liberal State FINALLY Stands Down In Fight For Freedom From COVID Tyranny

(RepublicanNews.org) – US states have taken various approaches to address the COVID-19 pandemic over the past few years. Restrictions varied widely from location to location, but more often than not, Democrat-led regions have opted to preserve mandates long after Republican-run areas allowed them to end.

California, which maintained one of the country’s strictest responses to the virus, is finally walking back its harsh guidelines for educational institutions by allowing students to attend mask free.

Mask mandates in the Golden State officially ended for schools back on March 11. However, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released new guidance recently for the 2022 to 2023 school year. It stated that schools can’t prevent people from participating in any activity or entering the school if they’re not wearing a face covering unless it represents a specific health concern.

The new rules also mention that COVID-19 isn’t going anywhere but that schools in California can use the tools and methods the state has learned to reduce the virus’s impact on the public’s well-being. It asserts that students who test positive for COVID-19 should remain at home for at least five days and wear a mask when around others for at least 10 days.

Have California officials realized their approach to COVID-19 wasn’t as effective as they had originally thought? Perhaps, as others have mentioned, regional officials have come to realize that no mandate will ever completely eradicate the virus, and Americans simply have to learn to live with it without constant fear.
