Joe Biden’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have ruled that fishermen will be forced to wear masks as the operate their boats and he has ordered the Coast Guard to enforce his radical order.

You read that right. Biden wants to force people that work out in the open air to wear masks at all times as they perform physical labor… outdoors.

AND he wants to use a branch of the U.S. military to enforce his rule!

At least one Congressman, Maryland GOP Rep. Andy Harris, was shocked by the order.

Per Just the News:

“While appropriate on some modes of transportation where social distancing with strangers cannot be maintained, this mandate is overly broad and leading to unseen frustration. The Coast Guard has issued guidance that all commercial fishing vessel occupants will be required to wear masks, and that they will enforce this mandate,” said Harris, Maryland’s sole Republican congressman.

Harris contests the order on the grounds that commercial fishing is an actively that primarily occurs outdoors, on the water, in the fresh air.

“Our watermen are completely outdoors, often numbering no more than three per vessel and have been working together without interruption since the beginning of this pandemic. They are at extremely low-risk by the nature of their work,” he said.

Rep. Harris wants the CDC to clarify what it means with this order.

All this comes as coronavirus rates are actually declining all across the country, too. So, why are these Biden lackeys ramping up new, draconian rules?
