Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders has firmly declared that the state will not go back into lockdown or impose mask and vaccine mandates. In a recent press conference, Sanders emphasized the importance of personal liberty and freedom in making decisions around health and safety. She criticized the actions of the government during the COVID-19 pandemic, stating that a handful of bureaucrats had trampled on citizens’ rights by shutting down schools, churches, and businesses and enforcing masks on children.
To demonstrate her administration’s stance, Governor Sanders has already repealed a long list of executive orders related to COVID-19. Additionally, she announced a ban on COVID-19 vaccine mandates for all Arkansas state employees. Sanders made it clear that Arkansas will not close schools, churches, or businesses, and there will be no mask or vaccine mandates as long as she is in office.
During an interview with Sean Hannity, Governor Sanders expressed her disbelief that it is still necessary to assert these positions. She argued against returning to policies that have had negative consequences, particularly on children’s education. Sanders highlighted the detrimental effects of school closures on student achievement and emotional well-being and stated that Arkansas will not mandate masks or push students out of schools, causing further setbacks. She emphasized the importance of data showing the adverse impact of previous shutdowns and mask mandates on children.
Addressing her critics and liberal activists advocating for renewed lockdown measures, Sanders firmly stated that such measures were “absolutely crazy” and that they would not happen in Arkansas. She underscored her commitment to freedom and rejected the idea of allowing liberal activists to dictate policies in the state.
Meanwhile, news has emerged that the Biden administration is preparing to reinstate full COVID-19 lockdowns, starting with masking mandates for TSA and airport employees in mid-September. An insider from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) revealed that managers were informed of new policies to reimpose mask-wearing. The mask mandate will be gradually extended to pilots, flight staff, passengers, and all airport patrons by mid-October. Similar measures are also being planned for Border Patrol personnel.
According to Infowars, these new directives were accompanied by warnings of a potential increase in COVID-19 cases and the introduction of a new variant. The whistleblowers were informed that a return to forced-masking policies and full COVID-19 restrictions was imminent.
During a show, Alex Jones, the host of Infowars, warned that a return to full COVID-19 lockdowns would be implemented by December, citing information from the TSA whistleblower. He also stated that the new variant would be particularly dangerous.
In conclusion, Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders has made it clear that the state will not revert to lockdown measures or impose mask and vaccine mandates. She firmly believes in personal liberty and freedom, emphasizing the negative consequences of previous restrictions on children’s education. In contrast, reports suggest that the Biden administration is preparing for a return to stricter COVID-19 measures, including mask mandates for transportation and other sectors.
