  • Sad to see that although California has declared an end to the pandemic, the BOCC remains a bastion of liberal idiocy by still requiring masks.

  • Masks are required regardless of vaccination status?
    Why?? There’s no state of emergency declared by Governor Desantis…I thought there was no Covid
    Passport required…the mask is the Covid passport
    For me to try and address my local government. Please
    Contact the governors office and let him know that the
    Alachua Count Commission and the city of GNV are requiring mask as Covid passport to attend meetings in
    Person. We don’t have government in the sunshine
    If the mask eclipses the sun.

    • Attorney Jeff Childers freed the children from the
      Tyrannical ACSB…he’s gonna free the rest of us now
      From a tyrannical city & county commission. No mask
      Mandates for all! God bless America!

      • That’s right…they’re using the mask as a Covid passport to attend county & city meetings..

        • “The commission will take public comment in person only”…if no mask, can’t comment…that’s a Covid passport!

  • I wonder if they wear the mask when eating in public and put
    It back up between bites… what a bunch of fascist tyrants…didn’t they take an oath to uphold the constitution of the United States? They don’t care
    About freedom and liberty…I have first amendment
    Rights and can’t express myself if my face is covered.
    I also can’t breath…aren’t we in charge of our own
    Medical decisions? My body, my choice, right?
