Washington, D.C. issues mask mandate; exempts lawmakers, government employees

[Ed. – And the unserious steam calliope of Mask Buffoonery lurches on. C’mon man.  If the coronavirus doesn’t respect national borders, it sure doesn’t respect Magick Gubmint Person Immunity.]

Washington, D.C., mayor Muriel Bowser (D.) issued a universal masking order for her city Wednesday but exempted lawmakers, judges, and federal employees.

The order mandates the wearing of masks in all indoor and outdoor settings where social distancing cannot be observed. No other designated profession is exempt from wearing a mask, except when a piece of work equipment would preclude mask use. Consequences for ignoring the order include fines of up to $1,000.

The mayor’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
