Yesterday (2/25) the CDC completely disempowered BOEs across the nation and undermined Governor Murphy (and other tyrant hold-outs) while simultaneously holding the entire nation hostage with data that cannot be accurately reported in real time. It’s such a such a shit show. I’m not even sure where to being to explain this mess and but I am ready to start vomiting swear-words. What I know for sure, is that I’m extremely tired of being at the whims of drooling idiots with competing power. Who speaks for “the science?” Is it Murphy? NJDOH? Biden? The Democrat party? CDC? Fauci? Pfizer? Aren’t you also tired of having all of these different masters?
Yesterday, within hours of the NJDOH guidance coming out, the CDC made competing guidelines, so then NJDOH had to revise their local guidance on the fly to match the new guidance from “the true masters of the science.” The NJDOH did have their own “local guidelines” on their website, but these rules change so fast they just said “F-it” and just linked to the CDC guidance.
The confusion rolls right down the schools. Currently we have NJ BOE’s still having masks on buses which is no longer a thing in New Jersey, as changed by the NJDOH on Friday right after CDC guidance came out. So its going to be UP TO YOU, THE PARENTS, to know what the rules are since no politician or school official is capable of understand them.
Freehold gets it! They rushed to unmasked on the bus starting Monday Feb 28th, but kids still have to wear a mask in school. This will be interesting.
One of the bigger changes was the CDC school bus guidance AND the elimination of the school specific guidance. Its now all based on a new guidance color-coded map that I modified below to highlight its stupidity.
Get ready for everyone to be inconvenienced by more garbage rules that won’t flatten the curve.
You may think you are saved by the CDC since your kids don’t have to wear a mask for now, but its going to be worse than you think. The CDC dreamed up over-complicated rules for everyone, that no one will be able to follow anyway. The NJDOH is spinning their wheels trying to make sense of it all and how to apply it to the small state of NJ where it is common to go to 4 counties in one day of running errands.
But it MAKES NO SENSE. NONE OF IT!!! STOP COMPLYING!
To make it more complicated, NJ has its own scoring system for COVID severity called the CALI Index that changes weekly, for each different county, by using unreliable data. So is NJ dropping that for now and are we following the new CDC color coded chart? Whos the boss here?
No matter what color coded scoring system we use, it is still powered by crappy data. Meaning, there could be a data dump of COVID positive tests in one day that causes the color score to increase for the week, putting you in the red zone; then masks will be back on for that WEEK (for everyone including schools) in your county, but if you drive to another county then you don’t need one.
I can’t deal with these smoothed brained dopes and their hairbrained ideas to stay relevant.
When I drive over to the Christmas Tree Shoppes in Camden county, I don’t want to have a mask on hand and look at an online chart to determine if they are in the red that week. Its just freaking insane. Are you willing to play the weekly MASK ON - MASK OFF game? I’m sure as hell not.
New Jersey real-time COVID data has proven to be unreliable through the past 2 years. When they do a data dump of positives, those records could be AT ANY TIME before the week. They are assigned to not the actual week used to calculate the severity score.
All this crap-science stays because the CDC DOES NOT want to admit they were WRONG about masks. My head is spinning that we let these shitlords have THIS MUCH control over our daily life.

And write your legislature and tell them to STOP this crap.
