Gov. Gavin Newsom Says People Now Required To Wear Masks In Public

Relaxation of requirements that people wear masks was inevitable. The desire for profit from business and income from customary work, and of course the enjoyment of the usual pleasures of life does not go away quickly. It is good that those not disappear.

Most people complied with mask rules when COVID-19 was a clear and present danger. Then the danger seemed to abat. Then it got a revival. Here we are.

The sports analogy of this pandemic: we're in the 2nd inning of a 9 inning ballgame. If that's true, then this will be demonstrably worse before it's finally resolved -- hopefully by a vaccine. It's also true that pretending things are OK when they clearly are not is a recipe for a massive number of deaths.

Baseball games, of course, are supposed to be fun.

It's a step in the right direction, though Newsom should not be making it an "either/or" thing between distancing and masks, but rather should be requiring both. At least he has the right idea of doing what's needed to reopen businesses and keep them open.

That's right. He also says the shelter in place order will be reimposed if necessary, and that he's willing to do it. He removed it too soon, and the results are showing in Southern California and increasingly in the north as well.

Absent such a shutdown, we need widespread testing and enforced/followed quarantines of those who test positive. Absent a vaccine and other medical therapies, quarantines are the only way to stop the spread of a contagious virus.

Meanwhile, the states in the south and southwest who removed controls and shutdowns too soon are the ones getting the most new cases, at record-breaking levels from 1000 to 5000 per day.
