Brazos Valley Hospitalizations Continue to Decline After Mask Order Rescinded

With breakthrough cases of the Delta variant of COVID infecting a growing number of vaccinated individuals, including no less than five Texas Democrats who fled their state to stop an election integrity bill, the fear is getting cranked back up to max. Democrats and the media are drooling at the possibility of gaining yet more control over people’s lives with a pandemic serving as the excuse.

Within that framing, there are renewed talks of lockdowns and mask mandates despite the fact that deaths and hospitalizations are not following the increase in cases. In fact, the data out of the United Kingdom shows just how irrelevant case counts are these days, though, the obsession with them continues for obvious, political reasons.

To begin, we’ve known since at least last fall (because of real-world data gathered from schools being open largely across the South) that heavy mitigation in schools is pointless. Children are not serious vectors for spread and virtually all teachers have been vaccinated at this point. It is child abuse to still be demanding an eight-year-old wear a mask all day in a classroom while they have a vaccinated teacher. There is
