California Governor Newsom’s Office Says To Wear Mask ‘In Between Bites’ At Restaurants

Governor Newsom, Wiki
The California governor’s office put out a tweet advising, “Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend? Don’t forget to keep your mask on in between bites. Do your part to keep those around you healthy.” The public balked at the ridiculous advisory. California’s published guidance for dining in restaurants does not mention wearing a mask in between bites. And it is merely a “guidance,” not a law.

The California governor’s office put out a tweet on Saturday advising that restaurant-goers keep their masks on while dining. “Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend?” the tweet reads. “Don’t forget to keep your mask on in between bites. Do your part to keep those around you healthy.”

In California, masks are required for anyone going outside their home, as well as workers in customer-facing businesses, offices, factories, and health care professionals, among others, according to the state’s COVID-19 guidance.

While children under 2 years old and those with breathing troubles or medical exemptions do not need to wear a mask, everyone else is required to wear them in all indoor public places — and also outdoors if keeping 6 feet of social distance with others isn’t possible.

The official guidance does say that masks can be removed for a number of reasons, including eating or drinking. However, the tweet from Governor Gavin Newsom’s office offered somewhat different advice, which confused some Twitter users.

“I’m very confused by this tweet. The image suggests you should only take your mask off once when you begin a meal but the text suggests you should put it back on between bites,” journalist Matthew Fuhrman wrote, referring to the graphic shared in the tweet.

“Should we wash our hands after touching our mask each time we remove it between bites? What if I’m eating chips and salsa and I go for a double dip? Is that technically two bites since it’s the same chip?” another person asked.

“This violates the @WHO ‘Dont’s of Mask wearing,'” another person tweeted, including a graphic from the World Health Organization which advises people to avoid touching their mask as much as possible, and to wash their hands before touching their mask and after discarding it.

Biden’s ‘Kids in Cages’ Prove Hypocrisy on Immigration

March 1, 2021 NY Post and Breitbart 2

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris savaged President Trump for keeping “kids in cages.” But now they’re doing the same thing by housing 700 migrant teens in some of the very same facilities they decried. Biden is ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program for Central American asylum seekers, which took pressure off the border.

“In California, masks are required for anyone going outside their home,…, according to the state’s COVID-19 guidance.” So this does not apply to Pelosi, Feinstein and now Maxine Waters…… all filmed without masks. Just applies to the useless eaters?

Newsom is literally crazy and is making complete fools of Californians. I can see him laughing it up every day. I just wouldn’t eat out anymore – this is the craziest order ever and isn’t according to science. I think it’s time we stop listening to and obeying to these insane, clinically depressed people in power!

Newsome is part of the Catholic Political Aristocracy in CA. Both he & his father were Jesuits, as was former governor Jerry Brown. In fact, Jerry Brown was a classmate of Newsom’s father at a Jesuit school. They are entrenched in politics here & can’t be swept away. And then, there’s the relationship between Newsom & Pelosi. As for the mask mandate, this is the first I’ve heard of it. I only wear a mask for a few minutes when grocery shopping (because I have to). I never wear one at any other time when outside.
