Jacksonville, site of Republican convention, to require masks indoors and in public

Source: The Hill

Residents and visitors in Jacksonville, Fla., will be required to wear masks indoors and in public spaces to help slow the spread of the coronavirus, the city announced Monday, potentially complicating President Trump's desire to hold the Republican National Convention there in August without masks or social distancing.

The mandatory mask policy will take effect at 5 p.m. on Monday, city officials said. It's unclear how long it will remain in place.

"At 5 p.m. today, the City of Jacksonville will be adopting a mandatory mask requirement for public & indoor locations, and in other situations where individuals cannot socially distance," the city tweeted. "Please continue to practice personal responsibility to help stop the spread of this virus."

The GOP announced earlier this month that the main events surrounding this year's convention, including Trump's speech accepting the party's nomination, would take place in Jacksonville.

13. Should but won't. He wants to spread the virus as far as possible.

Only if there's a raging pandemic and red states close most precincts in large cities will there be enough frustration, fear and chaos so that his supporters start shooting and give him the pre-made excuse to declare martial law & stop the election. Of course he will blame it on Antifa (which doesn't exist) and not the white power folks who have gunned up to stop the libruls from stealing drumpfs presidency. He is also hoping for lots of violence because he thinks it will make him look tough siccing dogs and massive violence on the protestors. That I am really hoping won't happen, but would bet it will at night.

10. Correct. If the number of new cases declines, they may very well end the mask mandate
