Coronavirus COVID-19 masks mask generic

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (FOX Carolina) -- The City Council of Spartanburg voted to require face masks as the fight against COVID-19 continues.

The emergency ordinance that council members passed unanimously, 7 to 0, will be similar to Greenville's

This means that within city limits, in close contact businesses such as: restaurants, retail, salons, barber, grocery stores, pharmacies, employees will be required to wear masks. Starting Monday at noon, customers will need to wear masks at grocery stores and pharmacies. Additionally, employees that have close contact with customers will need to wear them as well.

According to the ordinance, the council recommends but does not require all persons entering all other public or private buildings to wear a face covering. 

However, Council members say the residents of Spartanburg who use public transit, such as buses, will be provided masks. 

Folks are exempt from the ordinance if they have underlying health issues, or religious beliefs that do not allow face coverings. 

The ordinance will expire 61 days after being placed into effect, or unless it is terminated by another ordinance. 

Spartanburg is the third upstate city to announce a required face mask ordinance.

Article #3 of the citywide ordinance states:

“Any person who is unable to safely wear a face covering due to age, an underlying health condition, or is unable to remove the face covering without assistance of others is exempt from this ordinance. Furthermore, any person whose religious beliefs prevent them from wearing a mask or any person complying with the directions of law enforcement officers are exempt from this ordinance.”

The city ordinance passed by the geniuses that make up the Spartanburg City Council is for all intents and purposes, not enforceable.

If you look at the language written into the document in article number 3, it clearly states that anyone can opt-out of the mandate if they have religious beliefs that prevent them from wearing a mask.

Are you kidding me? Religious beliefs translate into personal opinions because the language in the ordinance doesn’t list or specify which religions were approved for exemption. The reason for that is because you can’t discriminate between religions. Hey, I belong to the church of common sense, and in my considered opinion (belief), I think wearing a face mask is ridiculous and offensive.

What this all boils down to is a plethora of elected leaders in local and state communities throughout the United States that don’t have a clue about what is currently transpiring concerning Covid-19. They do not have the skillset to understand that they are not dealing with a real virus. They do not have the health science background to know that the coronavirus pandemic is a false flag psyop designed to disrupt the ebb and flow of society worldwide.

The case numbers that are currently spiking across the United States have nothing to do with a real Covid-19 virus. The case numbers spiking has everything to do with the fact that the test kits being used to diagnose Covid-19 trigger false-positive results in about 20-30 percent of the population. The reason for this is because coronaviruses have been infecting people with compromised immune systems worldwide for decades, and a significant portion of the population have antibodies or DNA signatures of coronaviruses within their bodies at all times.

The reason the architects of this great screenplay decided to use a coronavirus as the villain in the psyop is that they knew from day one that a significant number of people in the world would test false-positive when the test kits were doled out.

To be able to publish the scary buzz words, outbreak, epidemic, and pandemic, you must have the necessary case numbers recorded by health officials. The rigged test kits, along with the false reporting of other presumptive positive cases, have allowed the overall massive reporting of Covid-19 case numbers to come to fruition.

Draw your line in the sand, and do not give in to draconian policies that are harmful to your health, go against human rights, and are unenforceable by local governments.
