"The Lone Star State continues to defeat COVID-19 through the use of widely-available vaccines, antibody therapeutic drugs, and safe practices utilized by Texans in our communities," Abbott said. Abbott said that Texans, not the government, "should decide their best health practices" and said that "public school districts or government entities" will be barred from implementing a mask mandate.

OSHA Imposes New Guidance for Employer-Required COVID-19 Vaccines

OSHA Imposes New Guidance for Employer-Required COVID-19 Vaccines --Contractors criticize mandate to classify adverse reactions as recordable safety incidents | 3 May 2021 | New guidance from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration is causing contractors to change their COVID-19 vaccine requirements, and many of them criticize the guidance as diametrically opposed to the Biden administration's stated desire to increase vaccinations. On April 20, OSHA released the new guidance in the frequently asked questions section of its website for COVID-19 safety compliance. The question asks whether an employer should record adverse reactions to COVID-19 vaccination if the employer requires the vaccine. OSHA states that if a vaccine is required, then any adverse reaction is considered work-related and therefore it must be recorded. Under OSHA rules, most employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses. Recorded injuries and illnesses become part of a contractors safety record.

Spanish politician temporarily suspended by Twitter after saying 'a man cannot get pregnant'

Spanish politician temporarily suspended by Twitter after saying 'a man cannot get pregnant' --Twitter told Contreras his comments violated the platform's policies on "hate speech" | 16 May 2021 | Francisco José Contreras, deputy to Spain's right-wing Vox Party, was locked out of his Twitter account for 12 hours last week after saying "a man cannot get pregnant" because they have "no uterus or eggs." Contreras' comments were in response to an article he shared on the social media platform about a transgender male who announced they were a father after giving birth to a baby girl. Contreras said in a Facebook post on May 11 that he had received a message from Twitter which informed him that he had violated its policies on "hate speech" for the remarks." "The hateful tweet (which I was forced to delete) was one that said: "A man cannot get pregnant. A man has no womb or eggs," Contreras wrote in response to the move. "You can see this is already fascist biology. Next time I'll try 2 + 2 = 4." [Right, but by the time Contreras tries that, the Nazis running Twitter will disallow him from posting the results of "2 + 2." Math is already considered racist, along with grammar and being on time. Equations, like gender, will have been deemed to be "fluid." --LRP]

Merriam-Webster Alters Definition of 'Anti-Vaxxer' to Include Opponents of Mandatory Vaccination

Merriam-Webster Alters Definition of 'Anti-Vaxxer' to Include Opponents of Mandatory Vaccination | 15 May 2021 | Recently, the Merriam-Webster dictionary (also called "The Ministry of Truth" in some circles) decided to broaden the scope of how to define the word "anti-vaxxer." Merriam-Webster's website now defines "anti-vaxxer" as "a person who opposes vaccination or laws that mandate vaccination." In other words, any person who does not believe in forcing a needle in the arms of others now falls under this term, regardless of their personal views on vaccines. "Welcome to '1984.' This is the Ministry of Truth," rapper and podcaster Zuby said on Twitter, in reference to George Orwell's dystopian novel.
