He will "allow" the deputies to wear masks in the jail and courthouse. Interesting, huh?



Psstttt. Florida set a record yesterday for COVID deaths. Oh, and the jail has seen a serious spike (at least 200 inmates/36 jail employees testing positive).



"Woods, meanwhile, told his deputies on Tuesday to stop wearing masks in most cases. While officers can still mask up in areas including the courthouse and county jail, they must immediately take off the face coverings afterward. Deputies working special events are also forbidden from wearing masks, Woods said.

All visitors to sheriff’s department buildings will be asked to take off their masks in the lobby, Woods said, linking that rule to the ongoing protests against police brutality.

“In light of the current events when it comes to the sentiment and/or hatred toward law enforcement in our country today, this is being done to ensure there is clear communication and for identification purposes of any individual walking into a lobby,” he wrote."

To be fair, in the past month they've cut their daily number of new infections in half. Not sure this will help though.

Yep. Deaths lag cases. We'll see over the next two weeks if death numbers decline as well. The 7 day moving average has declined over the past two weeks; hopefully it continues to move in that direction. At current rates they're less than 90 days behind New York's death total. Not a great place to be.

Yea, bad police, good peaceful protesters even if the don’t wear masks or social distance, riot and loot.
Sounds like the sheriff has a reason for his decision whether you like it or not.
My recommendation is stay out of Florida, move to the county and vote against the sheriff or run for sheriff yourself. Another option is to wear a mask if you are approached by law enforcement or anyone not wearing a mask. Look at all the choices you have.

If you are black in Lincoln County you don’t have to wear a mask due to racial profiling.


Did an Oregon County Say Only White People Must Wear COVID-19 Masks?

This is a man who hates his employees and wants them to die.

They probably made fun of his mall cop mustache.

America continues to be the hot spot worldwide for COVID and we can thank Trump and the right wing media for our situation. This cop is but a reminder of the idiocy that has overcome this country. We deserve it too, we have succumbed to ignorance as a national trait. Florida and other red states that continue to ignore public health warnings will suffer the most. Darwin rules again.

Another stupid response to the fact that QpubliQons like this ‘sheriff’ are killing their fellow Americans on purpose.

Why did you call someone an idiot, the noun word, and tell them to piss off, coco?

Think is probably violating OSHA rules in making the workplace unsafe, wonder how long this takes to hit the courts. If I worked there I would ignore his rules.

Yes. People are still dying. Fewer people dying this week than the week before, or the week before that, is better than the alternatives.

Nothing says "idiot" more than misspelling "you're" when writing, "your an idiot." :lol:
