Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is making a renewed push for mandatory masking and social distancing – calling for them to return in order to fight long COVID.
The department commissioned a new report, which was created by Coforma, a research group that recommends that the tyrannical mandates deployed during the COVID pandemic need to return.
According to the HHS report, Americans need to completely change their lives to appease those who are still living in fear over the virus and those with long COVID.
The report pointed out that people with long COVID do not enter public areas or attend events because they are afraid of being infected again or possibly making their symptoms worse, as well as due to the effects on their health.
“Some may experience PTSD symptoms as a result of trauma they incurred during their acute infection. The lifting of mask mandates and indifferent attitude towards masking and social distancing typical in many public and private places further isolates people with Long COVID,” it stated.
The report goes on to recommend “encouraging or mandating policies and protocols regarding masking and social distancing in public spaces that protect people from infection or reinfection and possible Long COVID.”
The HHS is calling for both federal and state policies that require schools and employers to accommodate people with disabilities, to be changed in order to accommodate for long COVID.
This policy change would grant Work Opportunity Tax Credits for hiring people who are fully bought into the COVID narrative and have long COVID.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, no test exists that can “diagnose post-COVID conditions,” and people can also have lots of symptoms that might be the result of other health conditions.
“This can make it difficult for healthcare providers to recognize post-COVID conditions,” the CDC noted.
“Listening to and learning from the experiences of long COVID patients is essential to accelerating understanding and breakthroughs,” Rachel Levine, the Assistant Secretary for Health, said.
The recent HHS report also said there should be “reasonable modifications,” performed by employers to make people with long COVID, more comfortable.
Essentially, they are suggesting that workplaces should force things like mandatory masking to accommodate any individuals hired with long COVID.
This new push for mandates seems to be part of a larger trend out of the Biden administration as they make it clear they’re not done with COVID just yet.
The Biden administration is expected to ask for additional funding for the COVID-19 pandemic before the next Congressional session takes place. The administration is expected to ask for $10 billion, with $750 million of that going towards long COVID.
