This statement from Sen. Leader Phil Berger arrived in my in-box this morning.

Sen. Berger Statement on Mask Mandates and CDC Guidance
Raleigh, N.C. – Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) issued the following statement:
“The CDC finally formalized what many Americans who think for themselves have been doing for months: Those who are vaccinated should resume their normal way of life, and without masks if they so choose.
“Imposing personal restrictions on those who pose no public health risk is senseless and will further undermine what trust remains in public health authorities.
“Gov. Cooper should immediately withdraw North Carolina’s mask mandate.”
