Clay: If Not Now, When Will It Ever Be Appropriate To Stop Wearing Masks?

On Tuesday, students at Stanford University were notified of a mandatory policy requiring masks to be worn in order to use the school’s recreational facilities.

Having a 100 percent vaccination rate among its students and staff, Stanford’s baseless support for mask wearing embodies a larger issue spreading in America since the pandemic started.

Americans’ willingness to surrender personal freedoms has now left society at the whim of institutions aiming to preserve their influence over people.

During Wednesday’s episode of OutKick the Show, Clay Travis broke down the troubling uncertainty that many Americans, namely in Blue states, face now that the vaccines no longer signal the end of the pandemic.

“If 100 percent of people are all vaccinated, how do you ever stop wearing masks?” asked Clay, reflecting on the lack of logic between Stanford’s fully vaccinated student body and enacting a mask mandate.

“If you are still required to wear a mask while working out, or playing basketball, how do things ever get back to normal? When will it be appropriate to take your mask off? Based on the Stanford perspective right now, that answer would be ‘never.’ And the same thing, in theory, would hold true if everyone were vaccinated.

“What in the world is going on here that we are talking about this madness. I think it’s a significant question as it pertains to who we get back to normal when a place like Stanford has 100 percent vaccination and people still have to wear masks to play basketball. Which is utterly ridiculous.”

Clay also delivered a simple, effective way to live in opposition to persistent COVID mandates. “Live your lives normally, and put pressure on your cities; and states; and your schools; and your governmental institutions to allow normalcy to occur.”
