In San Francisco, if you don’t wear a mask, they can put you in prison

You can’t make this stuff up. You really can’t. On February 28, 2023, Susan Philip, MD, MPH, Health Officer of the City and County of San Francisco, issued this order requiring people who work in healthcare and in jails to be vaccinated and wear a mask at all times when in a room with other people. Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a misdemeanor punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both.”
