How did ithis thread start at this, and turn into what's it's become?
All I asked was "Has anyone heard how the NPS on Hatteras will be enforcing Biden's new executive order / mandate requiring masks on all Federal Property?"
But I quickly learned of the liberal interpretation that there really isn't a mask mandate, you only have to wear one if you cannot socially distance. I was taking the Executive Order to mean what was written but I was informed by some here that there was an implied "or" instead of the written word "and" in the Executive Order as written :
Section 1. Policy. It is the policy of my Administration to halt the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) by relying on the best available data and science-based public health measures. Such measures include wearing masks when around others, physical distancing, and other related precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Put simply, masks and other public health measures reduce the spread of the disease, particularly when communities make widespread use of such measures, and thus save lives.
Accordingly, to protect the Federal workforce and individuals interacting with the Federal workforce, and to ensure the continuity of Government services and activities, on-duty or on-site Federal employees, on-site Federal contractors, and other individuals in Federal buildings and on Federal lands should all wear masks, maintain physical distance, and adhere to other public health measures, as provided in CDC guidelines.
Going to head out to the beach on this cold sunny day to fish a little bit without a mask - target species: Lizard fish.
