    Gov. Andrew Cuomo took another swipe at the NYPD during a conference call with reporters on Wednesday where he said cops 'weren't doing their jobs' enforcing social distancing rules  Gov. Andrew Cuomo took another swipe at the NYPD on Wednesday, this time for not enforcing social distancing rules, after blaming the police department for the fast rising crime across New York City, as he touted his pandemic response book despite widespread criticism of it.  On Wednesday, Cuomo hosted a conference call for reporters instead of putting on his usual daily press conference.  He pontificated about what the NYPD should be doing to enforce social distancing rules at bars and restaurants, then defended writing a book about the pandemic, saying other people had written about him without him.  Asked whether or not he would be donating the proceeds of book sales to charity or keeping them, he hesitated then eventually...
    Boise, Idaho — A federal judge on Monday issued a temporary injunction to stop Idaho from enacting a law banning transgender girls and women from participating in women's sports while a legal challenge moves forward.  The ruling means transgender athletes wanting to participate in sports that match their gender identity can do so this fall at the college and secondary school level, The Idaho Statesman reported. U.S. District Judge David Nye, in Idaho, ruled that a preliminary injunction is warranted because the plaintiffs are likely to win in court as part of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union challenging the constitutionality of the law.

    A woman from a discredited anti-mask “agency” was caught on camera falsely informing a California grocery store worker that she could be sued — or go to jail — for requiring customers to wear the protective face gear, according to a report. Sporting a badge and a holding a clipboard, Lenka Koloma — founding member of the so-called Freedom To Breathe Agency— is shown relaying the bogus claim to store supervisor Liz Chavez at a health food shop in Orange County. “You personally can be sued for this, OK?” Koloma says in an authoritative tone, according to a video posted on TikTok. “You are putting yourself into major legal liability.” Chavez, 31, had just asked Koloma to wear a mask inside the store when Koloma — whose group is not a government organization — launched into a speech about personal freedoms, Chavez told Buzzfeed. “I went up to them like,...

    Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp said on Tuesday that he is “putting Georgians first” by suing the city of Atlanta to block its mandate to wear a mask in public and other rules related to the COVID-19 pandemic. “We have local mayors that start going either above or beyond the executive orders I have put in place and try to pull back on our economy and start shutting our economy and shutting businesses down with really a knee-jerk reaction,” Kemp told “Fox & Friends.” READ THE NEW LAWSUIT In the court filing, Kemp and Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr argue that the city's leadership is illegally circumventing state executive orders with their own edicts. They say Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has overstepped her authority and under state law she must obey the governor's executive orders. Kemp "seeks to have this Court make a declaration that Mayor Bottoms' executive orders are more restrictive and contradictory to his executive...
    THE new Gulliver's Valley theme park has come under fire from guests after new rules require kids from the age of three to wear face masks. The new rules have been introduced after they opened this month, as part of their safety precautions during the pandemic. 3Gulliver's Valley require all kids over the age of three to wear face masks on ridesCredit: Facebook/Gullivers Valley It states: "Face coverings are mandatory on all rides.

This also includes "not being able to put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability." However, Gulliver's Valley guests slammed the new rules, saying they were...
    Associated Press BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana judge issued a ruling Tuesday that blocks the state from enforcing a voter-approved law that restricts the collection of absentee ballots during elections. Tuesday's ruling from District Judge Jessica Fehr came after the Billings-based judge temporarily halted the Ballot Interference Protection Act two weeks before the June primary election. The law passed by voter referendum in 2018 limits one person to turning in a maximum of six absentee ballots. Fehr wrote the law would “significantly suppress vote turnout by disproportionately harming rural communities." She said Native Americans in rural tribes across the seven Indian reservation located in Montana would be particularly harmed. The ACLU, Native American tribes and advocacy groups sued in March to block it, arguing the law disproportionately harms American Indians who live in rural areas and rely on others to collect and convey their ballots to elections offices or...
    Connecticut residents have largely been following state mandates during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic though there have been some concerns about out-of-state visitors. This week, Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey announced that that travelers coming from select states into the metro region will be subjected to a 14-day quarantine to help ensure there isn’t a new spike in COVID-19 cases. According to Johns Hopkins University, Connecticut currently has among the lowest seven-day average infection rates in the country, after being a hotbed for the virus when the pandemic first came to the United States from China and Europe.

States currently with an infection rate that will require a 14-day quarantine:...

    SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY (CBS13) — Gov. Newsom is pushing for stronger accountability from counties across the state by threatening to pull funding if they disregard state guidelines designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. “We cannot continue to do what we have done for the last number of weeks. Many of us understandably developed a little cabin fever. Some, I would argue, have developed a little amnesia, others, frankly, have taken down their guard,” Newsom said. The state is providing money to support local governments as long as they meet criteria and follow guidelines. That includes enforcing the state mask order which requires people to wear face coverings when in public. But some counties say they won’t enforce the rules. READ: Dr. Fauci and Gov.

Among the concerns: enforcing social-distancing rules and mask requirements, which were never previously in their job descriptions, while continuing to save lives -- and watch out for sharks. BEACH TOWN BUSINESSES BRACE FOR SURVIVAL THROUGH SOCIALLY DISTANT SUMMER AMID CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK “I’m concerned with how it will play out,” Jody Craven, the head lifeguard in Wellfleet -- a Massachusetts beach town -- told the Cape Cod Times. “I don’t want to be the person who has to enforce common-sense laws that in the past haven’t been my thing to enforce.” The Times noted that dozens of great white sharks were seen near the shore just last summer, and one shark even killed bodyboarder two years ago....
