Vaccine Passports Gain Traction in Democratic Places and Bans in Red States; COVID-19 Crackdowns, As Predicted, Go Permanent in States, and other C-Virus Updates

Vaccine passports gain traction in Democratic places and bans in red states:
Vaccine passports, or documents that show a person’s COVID-19 vaccination status, have been touted in Democratic-run states as tools for reviving commerce and tourism, while they've been outright banned in several red states. The Biden administration, meanwhile, has ruled out a federal vaccine passport mandate, citing privacy concerns.
“There will be no centralized, universal federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said last month.
Other countries are forging ahead with their own vaccine passport programs. The European Union, for instance, presented plans in March to implement a digital vaccination passport by June to salvage the summer tourism season. Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, told the New York Times earlier this week that she expects member states will accept vaccinated American travelers as well if they can provide proof of vaccination.
Without a federally mandated vaccine passport program in the United States, state governments will have the option to institute their own. Several Democratic governors have already indicated their support for vaccine passports that are voluntary and secure, while several Republican governors have banned them outright.

COVID-19 crackdowns, as predicted, go permanent in states:
At least three states have issued permanent crackdowns on individual liberties using the coronavirus health emergency as justification.
They call them “standards.”
That’s a bit of creative rhetoric; they’re really regulatory controls.
But this is what civil libertarians warned would occur due to lingering mass hysteria over the coronavirus — that government, once possessed of its extraordinary powers that were granted because of extraordinary circumstances, would not let go those extra powers.
Well, here we are.
“Virginia Becomes the First State to Adopt a Permanent COVID-19 Standard,” Littler wrote in late January.
The story went on to state that on Jan. 27, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam “approved a Final Permanent Standard … for preventing COVID-19 in the workplace … which applies to all employers in the Commonwealth.” --->READ MORE HERE
