Politicians can’t force you to get vaccinated (yet), but they can make your upcoming vacation miserable.
From prohibiting you from dining indoors to limiting your entertainment – leftist politicians are issuing mandates against the unvaccinated almost daily, and they show no signs of slowing down.
So if you want to avoid a vacation nightmare – stay away from these popular U.S. destinations on your next trip.
New York City
The Big Apple is truly beautiful around the holiday season, but this year you might want to stay far away.
If you aren’t vaccinated and hope to enjoy a hot cup of coffee inside a swanky Manhattan coffee shop – well, you’re officially banned.
Otherwise, you’ll need to get the shot – and have the papers to prove it.
With one of the strictest COVID-19 mandates in the country, NYC demands that those above the age of 12 must show proof of having received at least one COVID-19 shot in order to pretty much do anything indoors.
In New York City’s “Key To New York,” they list all the places where their latest indoor dining vaccine mandate is required:
“Restaurants, catering halls, event spaces, hotel banquet rooms, bars, nightclubs, cafeterias, grocery stores with indoor dining, coffee shops and fast food or quick service with indoor dining.”
But they didn’t stop there.
They’ve now added gyms, fitness centers, pools, dance studios…
“Movie theaters, music and concert venues, museums, aquariums and zoos, professional sports arenas, indoor stadiums, convention centers, exhibition halls, performing arts theaters, bowling alleys, arcades, pool and billiard halls, recreational game centers, adult entertainment and indoor play areas.”
Good luck doing anything if you don’t have “proof of your vax.”
… some Cali cities like Los Angeles were also among the first to force those who were vaccinated to start wearing masks again.
And all throughout the Golden State, mandates continue to ramp up.
The official California State Government website lists a bunch of “dos and don’ts” which encourage people to “get vaccinated” and “turn on exposure notifications” on their cell phones…
… while discouraging them from “expecting all COVID-19 rules everywhere to be lifted.”
Talk about setting the stage.
And politicians warn even more restrictions are coming.
The Los Angeles Times reported:
“If we ever want to get back to normal, to what Los Angeles was like pre-COVID, we need to stop the spread in places most high risk,” Council President Nury Martinez said during an Aug. 11 meeting.
“So, if individuals want to go to their gym, go to their local bar without a mask, you need to get vaccinated. And if you want to watch a basketball game, a baseball game, go to a concert at a big venue, or even go into a movie theater, you need to get a shot.”
I know, the beaches are beautiful and the sunsets are breathtaking.
But COVID-19 restrictions are insane in Hawaii – with even children being forced to show proof of vaccination in order to eat inside.
Throughout the pandemic, tourists and locals alike were punished – from getting locked up for walking alone on the beach, to being told they can’t leave their hotel room for weeks in order to prove they don’t have COVID-19.
But one would think things would surely be better now, right?
Not even close.
Even Hawaiian politicians are telling people to stay away.
Hey listen, you don’t have to tell us twice.
Don’t worry, there are still plenty of liberty-lovin’ states you can visit and enjoy without being forced to show you’re vaccinated.
In fact, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida signed a bill this past May preventing vaccine passports in his state.
So did Texas (with the exception of nursing homes and long-term assisted living facilities).
And while most states may “recommend” you wear a mask, so far, there is still no official mask mandate… yet.
There’s no telling what the upcoming weeks will hold – especially if Biden and Fauci get their way – but at least for now, you have the freedom to explore our beautiful country.
Do you plan to travel to New York City, California, or Hawaii in the upcoming months?
What are your thoughts on the oppressive mandates?
