(Reuters) - Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) Co said on Friday it was making vaccination mandatory for all its on-site salaried and non-union hourly employees in the United States, as the highly infectious Delta COVID-19 variant drives a resurgence in cases.

"Employees who aren't already vaccinated and are working on-site will have 60 days from today to complete their protocols and any employees still working from home will need to provide verification of vaccination prior to their return, with certain limited exceptions," Disney said.

The company also said all the newly hired employees will be required to be fully vaccinated before beginning their employment.

Disney's announcement comes after major tech companies including Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Inc's Google, Uber Technologies (NYSE:UBER) Inc and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) said earlier this week that all U.S. employees must get vaccinated to step into offices.

Health authorities on Tuesday said Americans fully vaccinated against COVID-19 should go back to wearing masks in indoor public places in regions where the coronavirus is spreading rapidly.

Good. Unvaccinated folks mustn't be allowed to roam freely. Statistical ignorance is rampant.

Meanwhile Biden sues Texas to stop record numbers of immigration with high rates of Covid-19 entering state. Biden wants to escalate restrictions on US citizens to stop spread of Covid-19, but allow illegal immigrants flood southern border with high rates of Covid-19. Clueless.

Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Looks like the White House sent out a memo to all their news organizations to go back into COVID hysterics and theatrics as if we are back in March of last year, and that we need to redo everything that did not work over the past year and a half. Nothing that they are saying makes any logical sense from a public health or legal perspective. Since COVID-19 vaccines do not prevent you from getting/spreading the virus, how do these mandates make sense to anybody? Why should there only be mandatory testing for unvaccinated people if vaccinated people are also spreading the virus? Even within the White House, there was a spreads of the virus from vaccinated people due to the Texas Democrats and Nancy Pelosi's office just in the past couple of weeks. (cont. below)

Every other vaccine that is mandated, such as in public schools for children, is because it is the type of vaccine that prevents people from spreading the virus (i.e. once vaccinated, you do not spread the virus even if you are exposed to it). COVID-19 vaccines are not that type of vaccine, they are simply for symptomatic relief. Further, the COVID-19 vaccines are not FDA-approved and they have given vaccine manufactureres legal immunity. I can see why many people are already contacting lawyers regarding these mandates, doubt they are legal. There is no precedence of this for this type of vaccine. There are a massive number of adverse events and deaths already reported in the vaccine adverse event reporting system related to COVID-19 vaccines, more than every other vaccine in the system combined.

Let me quote: "(Reuters) -Three-quarters of people infected with COVID-19 at July public events in a town on Cape Cod in Massachusetts were fully vaccinated, a study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed." I feel compassion for anybody that got sick, vaccinated or unvaccinated! ... but I cannot agree with anyone demanding compulsory vaccination. That is simply a matter of free choice for anybody.
