California Dept. of Public Health issues guidelines for private gatherings

California health bureaucrats missed the memo from WHO regarding lockdowns.

They are still in some form of lockdowns with restrictions in place in California. And since their citizens don’t know any better, the bureaucrats have issued guidelines for how you conduct your PRIVATE gatherings.

Their guidelines apply to private gatherings, and all other gatherings not covered by existing sector guidance are prohibited. Gatherings are defined as social situations that bring together people from different households at the same time in a single space or place. From their web site:

All persons planning to host or participate in a private gathering, as defined above, must comply with the following requirements. Local health jurisdictions may be more restrictive than this guidance.

Gatherings that include more than 3 households are prohibited.

Gatherings that occur outdoors are significantly safer than indoor gatherings. All gatherings must be held outside. Attendees may go inside to use restrooms as long as the restrooms are frequently sanitized.

For any gatherings permitted under this guidance, the space must be large enough so that everyone at a gathering can maintain at least a 6-foot physical distance from others (not including their own household) at all times.

Seating must provide at least 6 feet of distance (in all directions—front-to-back and side-to-side) between different households.

When gathering, face coverings must be worn in accordance with the CDPH Guidance on the Use of Face Coverings (PDF), unless an exemption is applicable.

People at gatherings may remove their face coverings briefly to eat or drink as long as they stay at least 6 feet away from everyone outside their own household, and put their face covering back on as soon as they are done with the activity.

Gatherings should be two hours or less.

Read all their guidelines here.

There’s a way to get around all these guidelines, though. Just call your event a “peaceful protest.”

Better yet, just wait until November 4 to hold a private gathering as restrictions may be lifted after the election.

The “experts” at WHO are now against lockdowns

In April, I did a blog post entitled, “When you prepare for something that is not coming, you just may destroy yourself.”

Many of us “non-experts” questioned the rationale for shutting down economies in order to “flatten the curve” of a virus.

Social media platforms silenced many who also questioned the rationale of lockdowns. Remember this?

During the past seven months, we’ve seen the consequences of lockdowns: Increase in suicides, economic devastation, increase in divorces, job losses, businesses closing, students falling behind in education, and so on.

There are several demorat-run states that STILL have some form of lockdowns in place (Washington, California, Illinois, New York, etc.). Wonder if they’ll change their tunes now that the “experts” at WHO are warning AGAINST lockdowns?

The NY Post reports that The World Health Organization has warned leaders against relying on COVID-19 lockdowns to tackle outbreaks — after previously saying countries should be careful how quickly they re-open.

Apparently these lockdowns should only be treated as a last resort.”

Too little, too late doctor!

More from the story:

“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” Dr. David Nabarro said.

“The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.”

Nabarro said that there’s significant harm caused by tight restrictions, particularly on the global economy. “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer,” he said.

He added that lockdowns have severely impacted countries that rely on tourism. “Just look at what’s happened to the tourism industry in the Caribbean, for example, or in the Pacific because people aren’t taking their holidays,” Nabarro told the outlet.

“Look what’s happened to smallholder farmers all over the world. Look what’s happening to poverty levels. It seems that we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition.”

I wonder if the demorat governors will take the advice of this good doctor and fully re-open their states? I have a feeling that decision won’t be made until November 4.
