Last week, Heather Johnson, commissioner of the Maine Department of Economic and Social Development (DECD)

  Last week, Heather Johnson, commissioner of the Maine Department of Economic and Social Development (DECD), announced in a month-long business community video call that the government would voluntarily translate the 19th-year ban on the US government. Thoughtful suggestion. And prevention (CDC).

"Businesses still have the option of requiring some specific activity, but the government no longer requires it," Johnson said of going for the "recommended but not required" model. Since the governor's business began to take off, more and more state business policies that have come close to the COVID-19 checklist of the DECD have become part of the administration's timeline for obtaining their orders. Johnson said Governor Janet Mills would issue an executive order to replace Cody by the end of this week. On the same day, Mills instructed everyone in child and child care organizations, except 5 more, to end the statewide mandate on 24 May.

Last week, it planned to increase outdoor capacity by 100% and indoor capacity by 75% on May 24, but these limitations can be anticipated because the DECD checklist still requires physical distance within an organization, in fact. The ability to control oneself. Other activities, such as cleaning surfaces and wearing masks, are public facing companies experimenting with infection management policy.

US Mills management demanded that the guide be changed before state regulations were changed. While waiting at the CDC, it did not appear that the company had given prior notice to the states before announcing the change in guidance. New Hampshire's public health director regretted not informing the CDC at a meeting earlier this month. As a result, Mills management is required to issue new rule changes within two consecutive days.

In Johnson's latest announcement, no business in Maine will be forced to follow the revised guidelines of Governor Mills on May 13 and 14. Within months, public health officials had come to know that COVID-19 was less capable of contracting the surface. Rationalism was completely abolished on the basis of automatic distribution of the need for masks to all. According to a recent MIT study, being isolated, physical isolation does not make any difference in the risk of infection and may contribute to a "false sense of security". . "

As Governor Mills in Connecticut and Rhode Island said a week ago in New Hampshire last week, the state of Maine has identified business service owners and workers in Maine who may break their physical plastic barriers.

Therefore, as of today, capacity limits and distance requirements have not only been eliminated for all businesses, including restaurants and bars, but also an additional headache for maintaining physical barriers. Between customers and employees, regular cleaning of surfaces and polishing of masks for everyone in the home will be eliminated. Finally, the government agrees with the latest understanding of science.

However, there are real questions. Why did Governor Mills not remove these policies in the CDC announcement? If these policies no longer serve us, why wait 10 more days?

In the past 15 months, Maine policy has repeatedly expressed disappointment and condemned the media for sending angry and threatening messages from government officials. Especially now, as the epidemic subsides, these closure conditions are particularly important for many adults and children who have recovered psychologically from the stress and trauma of the past year.

State and federal CDC guidance Maine youth must hide their face and stay away from school, sports leagues, or summer camps. Adults can sit next to each other in restaurants or bars, but students are not allowed to sit near their own classmates during lunch. The administration has recently allowed schools to choose gap requirements, but only by enrolling at least 30% of students in the integrated testing program.

Dr. C.D., Director of Main CDC Nirav Shah Govind-19 is beginning to influence youth "more systematically", meaning they have an important role in the activities. Of course they are, what? People under the age of 30 are the lowest group to be vaccinated, but they face a nationally lower risk of serious illness, especially for healthy individuals.

Such fear is putting more pressure on people to keep old and high-emergency regulations, while ignoring scientific evidence that the virus does not adversely affect children. Health status in the elderly (and over a year. Proven over a long time), especially for the unsupported (especially overweight). Reducing public confidence in policy makers is neither common nor excessive.

The pressure on adults to "obey the rules" and make sacrifices is completely obscured by the damaging effects of locks on young people, but on learning about the world, trying to grow, meeting colleagues, and receiving education. Despite the apparent cost at the population level in the idea of ​​formulating this policy, the risk of misuse of public health officials is placed by politicians with much-needed powers.

Mills and Shaw said they would like to make concessions for vaccines, but we heard that public health officials were comfortable with the idea of ​​putting our freedom in front of our besieged faces. If (an indefinite number of people) do what they say and get vaccinated, we will eventually end the restrictions. To emphasize that the cause of vaccine status is independence is a race against common sense.

However, they still have cards. Maine lawmakers should add the possibility of another lockout and eventually Governor Mills will serve the state
