New Hampshire issues new mask mandate ahead of motorcycle rally: "Sturgis was a clear warning sign

New Hampshire issues new mask mandate ahead of motorcycle rally: "Sturgis was a clear warning sign to us" - CBS News

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu issued an executive order Tuesday requiring masks to be worn at scheduled gatherings of more than 100 people. The order will be put to the test August 22-30 at the annual Laconia Motorcycle Week, which typically attracts thousands of people to the state.

It's a smaller version of the 80th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, a 10-day event that began Friday in South Dakota. Organizers there expect about 250,000 visitors from all over the country - about half the number of previous years but enough for local residents and a few bikers to worry about virus outbreaks.

"Sturgis was a clear warning sign to us," Sununu said. "I don't think anyone saw the photos out of Sturgis and thought, 'That looks safe.'"

I've been here since the beginning of July," one person in Sturgis told CBS News. "People are tired of being at home, you know. This is what this rally started about is freedom."

The New Hampshire mandate won't apply to large workplaces or to schools, unless students gather for an assembly or other large event, Sununu said. But it would apply to gatherings such as a traveling religious revival headed to New Ipswich next week, and it will be enforced, he said.

The Department of Justice is still working on the details, but enforcement will be aimed at holding hosts and organizers accountable, rather than individuals.

'That looks safe' is the height of under-statement.

Wow. A Sununu. Saying that. Wait and see. Jerry Brown backed-off of a helmet requirement and allowed a BS head cover that looked like a German WWII helmet when then Hell's Angels head honcho Sonny Barger walked up capitol steps with a bunch of bikers rolled-up behind him and convinced Gov Moonbeam otherwise.
