Americans have the freedom to spread diseases

Americans love their God-given freedoms. 

The freedom to bear arms despite almost daily mass shootings. The freedom to invade other nations to save them from communism.

And now the freedom to spread disease with the greatest of ease. 

Now a federal judge in Florida, an appointee of deluded dunce Donald Trump, has ruled that a US Government mask mandate on public transportation is unlawful, overturning a Biden administration effort to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

US health officials last week extended by 15 days the mandate requiring travellers to wear masks on aeroplanes, trains, and in taxis, ride-share vehicles or transit hubs. 

But US District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled the mandate unconstitutional.

A win for freedom. Americans are now free to sit in close proximity to complete strangers who may, or may not, have Covid. And to share their air.

US Travel Association Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Policy Tori Emerson Barnes said: “The current decision to halt enforcement of the federal mask mandate effectively returns the choice of mask usage on planes and other forms of public transportation to travellers and travel industry workers, a further step toward endemic management of Covid.

“We also continue to urge the administration to immediately end pre-departure testing for vaccinated inbound international passengers, which discourages travel and provides limited public health benefits.” 

They are among us. 

Fortunately, sensible folk have not yet been banned from wearing masks should they choose to do.
