    Eight people in Indonesia who flouted mask restrictions were reportedly ordered to dig graves for people who died of COVID-19 as punishment. The Jakarta Post reported that local authorities in the country’s East Java province handed down the unique sentence to eight people who were not wearing face masks. Sunyono, head of the region’s Cerme district, said that the punishment would serve as a deterrent. “There are only three available gravediggers at the moment, so I thought I might as well put these people to work with them,” he told Indonesian news website Tribun News. The group reportedly dug graves in a public cemetery located in the village of Ngabetan. Sunyono said that because there have been...
    Local authorities in Indonesia ordered eight people who broke the country’s face mask laws to dig graves for COVID-19 victims, according to a report. The province of East Java punished the mask violators with the manual labor at a local cemetery in hopes of deterring others from disregarding the nationwide face-covering mandate, the Jakarta Post reported. “There are only three available gravediggers at the moment, so I thought I might as well put these people to work with them,” politician Suyono told local media, according to the paper. “Hopefully this can create a deterrent effect against violations,” he added. None of the rulebreakers were forced to handle the corpses, the outlet reported. Only local health officials wearing full-body protective equipment...
    Getty Workers move a coffin to a burial site for victims of the COVID-19 coronavirus at Keputih cemetery in Surabaya, East Java on July 15, 2020. Eight men who were caught not wearing face masks in public as part of coronavirus mitigation efforts faced an unusual punishment last week. They were made to dig the graves of some who died of COVID-19, according to Tribune News. The punishment was meant as both a warning to others and to fill a legitimate need. Cerme district head, Haryono Suyono, told The Tribune News there weren’t enough people to dig graves as people continue to die from COVID-19 complications, and here were these men who had to choose to either pay...
    The coronavirus pandemic, according to researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, had killed more than 183,600 people in the United States and over 851,500 people worldwide as of Tuesday morning, September 1. Yet for many Trumpian wingnuts and extremists, refusing to wear a protective face mask in public is a badge of honor. Chicago-based writer Ishena Robinson describes such a wingnut in an article for the African-American-oriented website The Root, noting how abusive he became when denied entry to a Walmart in Alaska. Videos posted on Twitter show how furious the man, who wasn’t wearing a mask, became when Walmart employees told him he couldn’t enter. The man is seen yelling” “You don’t have the ability to even come...
    New York (CNN Business)When in doubt, don't argue with anti-maskers. That's the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to retail and service employees. This week, the health agency issued new guidance to limit workplace violence that could be aimed at workers when enforcing their companies' Covid-19 safety procedures. The procedures that retail and service businesses have been advised to implement under CDC guidelines include enforcing mask wearing, social distancing and limiting the number of customers allowed in a business at one time. But the CDC warns that workers could be threatened or assaulted for employing these safety measures, describing violence ranging from yelling and swearing to slapping and choking the employees. The CDC has outlined a number...
    Leading public health authorities all but beg people to wear them. Local, state and federal government officials are imploring, and in two-thirds of states, mandating, citizens to don them in public. Even the most mask-averse potential ‘role model,’ President Trump, has intermittently begun sporting one. The public, according to research polls, itself signals support for government-imposed mask mandates and most people say they are themselves wearing masks to protect others and, to some extent, themselves, from the deadly coronavirus. Yet surveys by researchers and media organizations including The Times make clear that large numbers of people continue to eschew masks in public, even in locales where they risk misdemeanor charges. As well, videos continue to pop up on the...
    SAN ANSELMO (CBS SF) — If you come to Marin, you’d better wear a mask because the Central Marin Police Authority says they may start ticketing those who don’t. The Central Marin Police say they are looking for folks who openly flout the county’s health order requiring individuals to wear a mask in public. San Anselmo Vice Mayor Brian Colbert told KPIX that at first, it will be a soft approach. “Which is, ‘Hey, we noticed you’re not wearing a mask, uh, please wear a mask and explain to people why they should be doing it,'” Colbert said “If they don’t comply, I believe there will be a little bit more continued education and then eventually, there will be a...
    An enterprising YouTuber decided to target covidiots by getting in their face – literally. “An American problem demands American solutions!” said Allen Pun, who runs the channel “Sufficiently Advanced,” which has over a million subscribers. “I made a mask launcher and brought it to Huntington Beach, which is one of the most anti-mask cities in southern California. What could possibly go wrong?” he wrote. Allen took direct aim at “maskholes” who refuse to wear face coverings amid the coronavirus pandemic by inventing a pneumatic gun that launches masks at their heads, Newsweek reported. The device — which he said looks “alien sci-fi alt-history steampunk” – is loaded with a surgical mask fitted with a double-sided foam adhesive that allows it...

    An Ontario-based anti-vaccination organization has filed an $11 million lawsuit against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the CBC reported Thursday. The Vaccine Choice Canada and seven individuals are suing the Canadian and Ontario governments, the City of Toronto, a number of politicians and health authorities, as well as the CBC over their response to the coronavirus pandemic including business closures, mask mandates and social distancing rules. The plaintiffs are arguing that the defendants’ “extreme, unwarranted and unjustified” responses to the pandemic were “not scientific, nor medically-based, nor proven.” They also allege government mask mandates can cause “physical and psychological harm,” according to the lawsuit. Here is the statement of claim filed in Ontario Superior Court.https://t.co/rULDUrXdQe Some of the plaintiffs’...

    CHICAGO — The state’s top doctor issued a challenge to anti-maskers amid the coronavirus pandemic: “Prove us wrong.” Dr. Ngozi Ezike, head of the Illinois Department of Public Health, said people who are against masks can challenge the state’s officials by wearing one — and, if their theory is correct, they can show people wearing a mask doesn’t help. But Ezike, of course, has urged people for months to wear masks because experts and studies say it lessens the spread of coronavirus. Illinois mandates people wear masks when unable to social distance in public. The issue is not everyone is wearing a mask when they’re supposed to be, and that’s contributing to more COVID-19 cases, officials have said. Illinois has...
    CNN rolled out its latest “Facts First” ad on Friday — with the network promoting mask wearing, and taking a shot at those who don’t wear masks. The spot, which aired on Friday morning’s edition of New Day, shows a series of masks set against a plain, white backdrop, with piano music playing in the background. “A mask can say a lot about the person who wears it,” a person says on a voice-over. “But even more about the person who doesn’t.” The ad concludes with the message “Please wear a mask” on screen, followed by the CNN logo and “Facts First.” The network also released a 15 second version of the commercial, in which a single mask...

Newark leaders never get enough tax money In Newark’s City Council minutes of May 28, 2020, the city manager said reserves are adequate to balance the 2020-2022 biennial budget, which can be re-examined in the fall to consider corrections. Now Newark wants a nine-year utilities tax extension before the budget is reconsidered in the fall (“City Council asking voters to extend utilities tax for nine years,” July 25). The city has leaned on this temporary tax since 2010. Surveys were recently sent to residents asking voters to prioritize needs such as 911, street maintenance and other services. No mention was made about pension fund obligations....
    Getty For sale masks are seen displayed on a clothesline in the front yard of a house in Los Angeles on July 20, 2020. The Center for Disease Control issued new guidance for schools set to reopen in the fall that includes the recommendation that all students and staff should wear cloth mask coverings. Included in that guidance is the acknowledgment that there may be “unintended consequences” regarding their mandate. In Florida, at least one unintended consequence of the mask mandate is also that it’s likely to bring lawsuits, as in the case of one group of parents who are raising money to contribute to a suit against two Florida counties, Pinellas and Pasco. Some members of that...
    Despite consistent pleas from health experts and research backing the claim that masks significantly prevent the spread of COVID-19, people still refuse to wear them. Anti-maskers continue to resist nationwide. First they protested state lockdowns and safety protocols; now anti-maskers are protesting mandates that require children to wear masks in school. Dozens of maskless demonstrators crowded the Utah County Commission meeting in Provo on Wednesday in protest of a state order issued by Utah Gov. Gary Herbert mandating that students wear masks in school. The protesters yelled phrases such as “let kids be kids, no masks” and “don’t smother the children,” arguing that it was their right to decide whether or not their children would wear masks to school. Last week, Herbert announced that...

    MONTEREY — There are those among us that seem to be defiant to the point of belligerence when asked to wear a mask in public, something businesses up and down the Monterey Peninsula can attest to. What’s less understood is why. No business is exempt from having to deal with these folks, and restaurants are front and center in that mix. Restaurant staff all have war stories about people who won’t wear masks while waiting in line to pick up take-out orders, and then getting angry and aggressive when asked to wear one. To be sure, the vast majority of people are understanding. They neither want to contract the virus nor transmit it. They see wearing masks as common sense....
    Wednesday on CNN during their show handoff, hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon mock people who don’t want to wear masks amid the coronavirus pandemic. Cuomo had just finished a segment on Ohio state representative Nino Vitale saying people should stop getting tested for coronavirus and claimed wearing a mask is against his religious beliefs. Lemon asked, “What are these people — come on. Really?” Joking Cuomo said, “Thank God he’s Irish. Nino Vitale, couldn’t be more Italian than that name.” Lemon replied, “I’m not getting in on that thing. How, I wonder if the people work for the pretzel companies. They should open like a pretzel business.” Cuomo interjected, “Cause they got it twisted.” Lemon said, “They got it twisted....
    LAKEVIEW — The Chicago Bagel Authority is using snarky humor to deter anyone who refuses to wear a face mask from entering the bagel sandwich shop. After receiving a complaint from a customer who was denied service because they refused to wear a mask in the store, Chicago Bagel Authority created humorous signs playfully shaming anyone who isn’t wearing a face covering to prevent the spread of COVID-19. “Mask required to enter, Karen,” reads one sign posted outside the bagel joint’s Lakeview location at 955 W. Belmont Ave. “To accommodate anti-maskers,” reads another sign. “We have provided a space 40 feet west where you can stare at your reflection in the window since apparently you’re the only person you care...
