Maricopa County vows mask mandate until there are ZERO cases for 28 straight days

“Now that we’ve proven to you that masks work, you will be forced to wear one until there are exactly zero new cases for a month straight, or else when 40% of the population get a vaxx some day.”


The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a countywide mask mandate on June 20 in response to a rapid increase in cases. Almost exactly 14 days later, COVID-19 case numbers plateaued and began to decline. Other states and cities who have implemented similar mask requirements have also seen a significant decline in case rates 14 days after the requirement was implemented.

While other policies were implemented nearly simultaneously, such as closing bars and gyms statewide, Public Health is confident that the mask requirement played a critical role in reducing the spread of COVID-19 in Maricopa County.


Maricopa County Public Health recommends that the mask requirement be kept in place until one of two situations occur:

  1. Until there is no community spread of COVID-19 documented in Maricopa County as defined by a 28-day period during which no new COVID-19 cases are reported to public health
  2. Until a COVID-19 vaccine is widely available with at least 40% of the population vaccinated.

If there is no COVID-19 circulating, then masks are not required to prevent spread.

If there’s a vaccine and approximately 40% of the population is vaccinated (about the same percentage that gets the flu vaccine every year), there will be enough immunity to prevent a rapid increase in cases. Additionally, those who are at highest risk will be able to protect themselves with a measure other than social distancing.

  1. Apropos to explain the ongoing insanity:

    “The purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded and even destroyed.
    A society of emasculated liars is easy to control.”
    –Theodore Dalrymple

  2. My brother thought of a clever reply to all those obnoxious Karens demanding you don a mask,
    “No way. I’m pro-choice”.
