California governor: Put your ‘mask on between bites’

You might want to put your mask on because this one may have you laughing out loud:

The governor of California is reminding the restaurant diners of the Golden State that if they go out to eat, they should put their mask on between bites of food.

In a post on Twitter, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office gave the recommendation, along with a graphic that tells diners to touch their mask as little as possible.

Newsom has served as California’s 40th governor since January of 2019 and has implemented a variety of laws that have outraged conservatives. Last month, he signed legislation to put male inmates into female prisons if they identify as female.

His mask recommendation has elicited a variety of negative responses on Twitter.

While Alaska does not mandate masks, some communities, such as Anchorage and Juneau, do require masks to be worn indoors when in public.

The Juneau mask mandate includes restaurants, except for when diners are eating or drinking, but do not go as far as the Newsom recommendation to put a mask on while chewing food.

Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz’ mandate states, “All individuals must wear masks or cloth face coverings over their noses and mouths when they are indoors in public settings or communal spaces outside the home.”

The Berkowitz mandate also limits indoor gatherings to fewer than 30. Some of the Berkowitz mandates are being ignored by the public, although mask usage is widespread.

Canada’s top doctor has taken the mask advice a step further — into the bedroom. Dr. Theresa Tam wrote that sexual activity with the lowest risk “involves yourself alone.”

“Sex can be complicated in the time of COVID-19, especially for those without an intimate partner in their household or whose sexual partner is at higher risk for COVID-19,” she wrote. “Like other activities during COVID-19 that involve physical closeness, there are some things you can do to minimize the risk of getting infected and spreading the virus.”

Tam said sexual encounters outside one’s immediate social bubble should skip the kissing and avoid face-to-face contact and “consider wearing a mask that covers the nose and mouth.”

  • I’m so done with this sickness. This is a mental condition and I cannot even fathom how people really believe this crap. Disgusting and if we continue to follow this tyranny then we are the fools.

  • I’m with you Sheryl. Total insanity. I moved to Alaska in 1982 from Washington to get away from this crap but it just seems to be everywhere. Anchorage will probably start burning, just like Seattle and Portland.

  • I hope everyone is beginning to see where this is going… Control to the max. It’s just getting weirder by the moment. I’m done with this sickness, too, Sheryl. I agree that the real sickness is not bodily, it’s really about control, fear, greed, gaslighting, and narcissism. These politicians are definitely exposed by overplaying their hand.

    • I believe it’s the Democrats spreading the fearmongering. Newsom in California said put your masks on between bites. We need to tackle this like Trump says. We have an Antifa lady running for Mayor in Portland I think. This is a tough election. If you want a Democracy stay with Trump
      He will fix things he just needs time.

      • Haven’t seen Trump fix a single thing yet except for the Right To Try law is his only accomplishment and that’s after a bunch of people pushed him to do so!

        It’s like giving scraps from the table to us dogs barking at the people eating! Once in a while we get to chew on a bone and believe me ALL of us doggies go for it!

  • To limit your mask touching while eating while wearing it between bites, I am assuming he is suggesting bigger bites. Hope nobody needs the Heimlich maneuver due to this requirement.

  • Please, under no circumstances wear masks!

  • The elites are just working up to getting us to stand in line for a bowl of gruel.

  • We are at a 2.86% death rate in the U.S Global average is 2.93% we are better off, even though 5,6 governors murdered over 50,000 people by condemning them to death in convalescent hospitals. Enough lies. Be careful, take precautions, live your life, tell our governor we are not going to play anymore.

  • I am glad all you folks live in Alaska. Stay there with your non mask buddies.
    ….. we have a name for you folks, “maskholes” ?

  • Can’t we just chew with our mouths closed like our mothers taught us?

    • I see one benefit to dining with a mask on, as a kid I got slapped for chewing with my mouth open several times. Where were thes Democrats when I needed them?

    • ?

  • Unbelievable that sheep/people follow these stupid rules and control your lives.

  • Just when you thought Californians couldn’t get any stupider. And to think these people actually vote…sometimes many times over. Too bad we can’t permanently ban them from moving to Alaska.

  • I am reminded of the quote from CS Lewis:

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

  • Did you know this Newsom guy cheated with his campaign manager’s wife. He sent him on errands while engaging in extra curricular activities with his wife? This guy is scum.

  • The mantra, “COVID cases on the rise,” is repeated over and over ad nauseam to strike fear into citizens of the world, and justify the taking of more and more liberties. Cases are “rising” because of the so-called test itself. COVID19 PCR tests are scientifically meaningless, because PCR is NOT a test, it is a process which can amplify any molecule to a measurable amount. It is a polymerase chain reaction, which tells little or nothing about how a virus multiplies, or how it makes people sick. It can not even rule out diseases caused by other bacterial or viral pathogens.

    The PCR is inappropriate to detect a viral infection, and there is no Gold Standard for a test for COVID-19. There is no pandemic. This is, and always has been, a ruse to control the population of the entire world in order to install a one world government system.
