  1. Just like how the original lockdown was a “one-time” measure.

  2. “I just read what they tell me to” – Health expert, Barbara Yaffe

    • @Rodeo Frog You should ask Barbara she never did explain who they are. So both sides wants to know who they are!

    • @warren gress Don’t worry be HAPPY! LOL is that not one of their favorite lines that lead the blind when curiosity sets in?

      At least they read. If you did less writing and more reading we would all be happier

    • @James lol maybe much less than yourself… What is your knowledge on this scenario we actually face without the arrogance of your short uneducated wording..

    • @Lucas Egeland Who am I repeating? I watched her say it. I hope you are a bot, so that what’s coming will be painless for you.

  3. I think we are celebrating 280 days of 14 days to flatten the curve

    If we can’t go to work and get paid then the government shouldn’t be getting paid

  5. If it’s so severe, why are you waiting for 4 more days to lock down?

  6. “one time measure”
    “2 weeks to flatten the curve”

  7. Lockdowns the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.

    If you want to see your mother or father or a few family members your not allowed to your spreading covid. But go ahead and work with 25 + co workers a day and see 100 + customers thats ok.

    • tell me i cant go on a lake and fish by myself no body around but its ok for me to go in and out of 50 restaurants and 50 homes buts that’s essential lmfao

      @ReadySetReel tell me where are you that it’s illegal for you to go fish on a lake? It doesn’t exist you can go fish on a lake if you want to.

    • @Seeking Justice last lockdown i got kicked off the lake while i was fishing and they blocked the boat launches. said it would be a 750$ fine if i didn’t leave

      @ReadySetReel boo hoo. Sounds like you live in the past

    • @Seeking Justice just planning for future lockdown

  9. “We just need two weeks to flatten the curve.” – March 17th 2020

    • @Uvoicer Text To Speech the earth is flat,in the Canadian prairies. Other then that it’s round.

    • @Cory Johnes 0

    • The cheque is in the mail. I had no sexual relations with Monica. My son Hunter did nothing wrong. all true statements as well.

    • @Jon Faulknor You asked how a mask can stop the virus so I’ll explain it to you so that even you/a child could understand.

      Using an hockey analogy(without the goal post, where the webbing is the mask, and the puck is the gas particle(a fart for example) the smell goes through but not that strong, correct? Now using that same scale, the virus(which is bacteria) is the size of 5 dodge caravans stack 5Lx5Wx5H. So how can the virus penetrate the mask? It cant, unless its ripped, contaminated already because of transmission through other means or someone not being as clean as they should be.

      Campground owner and ski guy takes 0 understanding of Biology and your ignorance runs deep. You and all the other fruitloops in this thread.

      Aren’t we lucky we dont have idiots like you running the government

      @ARK CON we’re using the wrong masks that’s why. From now on everyone has to wear either Halloween masks or those brass scuba diving masks from the 19th century.

  10. nobody on camera is wearing a mask…

    Walmart and Costco going to love this

    I just read what they put in front of me, I’ll never forget that!

    Does that mean Walmart stays open, but small town stores remain closed then go bankrupt????

    This is literally an example of the emperor’s new clothes. How are they all maskless? Spitting up the same mic?

    • I hate it even more when they put on a mask when not speaking only to take it off when speaking. If anything, the other way around would at least make a bit (though not a lot) more sense. It’s either a “safe environment” in which case no masks are needed or an “unsafe” one in which case they should be kept on. All they are doing is virtue signaling.

      I liked when Doug took a drink of water after the others talked all over it!

      @MarkJPR There’s even a video of a guy offstage putting on a mask, walking out to the podium a few feet away on an empty stage, and then dramatically taking off his mask to speak into the microphone.

    So nurses are being laid off, but the hospitals are packed. Makes sense.

  16. “one-time” covid measure lmao yeah right.

    If a politician feels the need to say they’re being honest .. they’re not.

  18. Narrator: “It wasn’t a one-time thing.”

  19. I think they gave up. They aren’t even wearing masks.

  20. “28 Days Later” Season 10 premiers this holiday season.
