De Blasio Tells COVID Contact Tracers: Don't Ask About Protests
Silly me thought that Andrew Cuomo was going to be the biggest assclown in New York politics today. Instead, here's Bill de Blasio coming in clutch. You see, the way it's supposed to work in tracking COVID-19 is that "contact tracers" ask people who tested positive questions about who they know or if they have been social distancing more better enough. EXCEPT, they are NOT allowed to ask if the person attended a protest. AKA, an event where more than ten people were not social distancing.
The hundreds of contact tracing workers hired by the city under de Blasio's new "test and trace" campaign have been instructed not to ask anyone who's tested positive for COVID-19 whether they recently attended a demonstration, City Hall confirmed to THE CITY.
"No person will be asked proactively if they attended a protest," Avery Cohen, a spokesperson for de Blasio, wrote in an emailed response to questions by THE CITY.
"If a person wants to proactively offer that information, there is an opportunity for them to do so," Cohen wrote.
I guess de Blasio doesn't think people from New York City have spread the virus enough already.
Point of information: This was Brooklyn over the weekend.
This is what the #BlackTransLivesMatter protest looks like in Brooklyn right now https://t.co/60WWsPrXgP— Alexis Benveniste (@Alexis Benveniste) 1592157859.0
I almost don't have the words.
We've been somewhat sarcastically joking about how the way to get around social distancing is to say you're having a protest. You know, what with the scientists and other "experts" pretty much saying you need to social distance, unless you are out protesting, which is just as good for your health. But de Blasio isn't even pretending any more.
Either we were lied to in the first place about COVID-19 and its seriousness, or New York City straight-up doesn't care if it spreads a second outbreak throughout the country. It's one or the other. It is not both.
