BALTIMORE, MD. — Less than 24 hours after taking his oath of office and pledge to defend the Constitution of the United States, Baltimore’s newly elected far-left progressive Democrat mayor shut down indoor and outdoor dining in his city.
Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott announced Wednesday morning that the city’s restaurants and bars will be shut down, allowing only takeout orders. The order goes into effect on Friday, December 11th at 5 pm. Scott at many times during his first press conference stumbled on his words.
“These restrictions today, while they may seem harsh, are being implemented to save lives and to reduce the stress on our medical system,” Scott said. “Our hospitals will be overwhelmed if we do not act.”
“Our decision will be guided by science,” Scott said. In other states, science dictates that indoor dining has not been the cause of the spread of COVID-19 in restaurants that follow CDC indoor dining guidelines.
Under Mayor Scott’s lockdown order, religious facilities will be capped at 25% of their maximum occupancy, Indoor recreational facilities must close, casinos will have a 25% maximum capacity, and the restaurant industry is essentially forced into shutting down again.
Bars, restaurants, nightclubs, breweries, bowling alleys, ice rinks, hookah bars, fraternal clubs, bingo halls, roller rinks, and indoor sports training facilities must shut down at 5 pm on December 11th.
Scott’s order did not put a cap or limit on gun violence or murder, which has been rampant throughout his city during the COVID-19 pandemic.
