It’s not often that I say this as a conservative, but Mayor Bill de Blasio is absolutely correct to reject calls for a renewed indoor mask mandate and to refuse to consider renewed lockdowns in New York City in light of the emergence of the Delta variant. “A mask doesn’t arrest the progress of the variant,” Mr. de Blasio said, explaining how following the science led him to be reluctant to reinstitute the mandate this week. “Vaccination does.” This holds true not just for New York City: reinstituting mask mandates and lockdowns would be a mistake nationwide as well.
Forget Mask Mandates. Vaccines Are the Only Answer for Fighting Covid-19.
