On Tuesday, Los Angeles County stepped in to protect Hollywood celebrities who are under attack after they attended the Emmy Awards maskless despite LA county’s mandator mask mandate.
Los Angeles county, who enforces the mandates against normal citizens, said the actors and actresses were fine breaking the mandate because technically they were attending a “television production.”
“The Emmy Award Show is a television production, and persons appearing on the show are considered performers,” the statement said. “All persons appearing on or in the audience of the Emmy Award Show were fully vaccinated against COVID-19.”
“The Emmys reached out to Public Health in advance to share their safety protocols, which exceeded the baseline requirements for television and film productions,” LA County said. “Careful planning before large events is essential to assure that all health and safety requirements are adequately addressed.”
“Additionally, the department was told that all attendees tested negative for COVID-19 within 48 hours of the event. Similarly, production crews were required to be vaccinated or test negative for the virus twice per week,” Fox News reported.
The Department of Health diverted attention by focusing on vaccinations, saying the crowd was vaccinated which was “one of the most powerful ways” to be safe.
“Full vaccination of all attendees is one of the most powerful ways to achieve a safe environment. Testing of event participants and crew and optimizing ventilation are additional powerful tools,” the Department of Health said. “Public Health will continue to review the protocols of future large television production events and prescribe additional safety modifications to mitigate risk of COVID-19 transmission.”
Liberal actor Seth Rogan took notice of the hypocrisy.
“Let me start by saying, there’s way too many of us in this little room. What are we doing? They said this was outdoors. It’s not,” Rogan said. “They lied to us. We’re in a hermetically-sealed tent right now. I would not have come to this. Why is there a roof? It’s more important that we have three chandeliers than that we make sure we don’t kill Eugene Levy tonight. That is what has been decided.”
“This is insane. I went from wiping my groceries to Paul Bettany sneezing in my face. So, that’s a big week! If anyone’s gonna sneeze in my face, Paul, I want it to be you,” he continued.
