Biden drops pre-departure testing, NYC drops toddler masking, and more...
Time to celebrate or get an apology?
What a week!
Pre-departure testing and toddler masking are gone. But Alameda county re-institutes mask mandates. Two steps forward, one step back.
First let's remember the specifics of the two policies that fell.
The travel mandate was to have a negative test before flying back to the USA, but didn't apply to driving back to the states.
The masks mandate in NYC only applied to 2-4 year olds. No one else was required to mask.
Think about what that means…
