Brazos Valley Hospitalizations Continue to Decline After Mask Order Rescinded

Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued Executive Order GA-34 on March 2, 2021, and the order went into effect on March 10, 2021....

For students at a New Jersey college, the masking isn’t over.

In March of last year, I brought news to the RedState world.

On the 16th, I announced, “Trump Releases ’15 Days to Slow the Spread.’”

I have to say — it’s been a very long two weeks.

From Fox News at the time:

When asked when the pandemic would subside, Trump said that “if we do a really good job,” the crisis could pass by July or August, a far less optimistic take than in his earlier predictions that it could be over within weeks.

Like Elvis sang, “Memories…”

Now here we are, nearing July of another year, and the pandemic — at least in part — is still upon us.

If you doubt it, consider Monmouth University’s new COVID-19 guidelines for the 2021 fall semester.

According to its Health Protocols webpage, social distancing will still be a thing.

The school notes a recent gubernatorial order “relaxed the 6-feet social distancing requirement at all New Jersey institutions of higher education.”

But at Monmouth, safety first:

[O]ut of an abundance of caution, the University will try, when possible, to establish 3-feet social distancing wherever any in-person instruction is taking place on campus…

Three feet, it says, may also be required by faculty of any student office visitors.

And how about showing your perfect 18-year-old punum?

Don’t expect to, unless you’re “outside or in communal spaces on campus.”

[T]he University will continue to require masks in all classroom, lab, and teaching spaces, as well as the library, for everyone in attendance… Individual faculty and support staff may also require students visiting their respective offices to be masked before meeting.

To be clear, the above limited restrictions are for vaccinated students only.

For the non-needled, all the same applies, plus masks must be worn in all shared indoor spaces.

So goes college life amid — per the guidelines — “our full reopening in the fall.”

And upon that grand return, students are required to have taken the vaccine:

[T]he University is requiring every member of the Monmouth community (i.e., students, faculty, staff)
