Joe Biden is now making a new COVID-19 mandate as the current administration provided extreme COVID measures for this year’s State of the Union address.
In a Twitter post, Senator Marco Rubio said that the Biden administration is planning to require a negative PCR test one day before the event, social distancing, attestation of a negative health screening, and a “high quality” medical-grade mask.
He also mentioned from his post that he is not coming to this year’s SOTU and called it “COVID theater.” This only shows that Rubio is telling Joe Biden to take his phony “SOTU” and shove it.
Below is the #CovidTheatre rituals required to attend the State of the Union

The PCR test one day before the event, social distancing, attestation of a negative health screening, and a “high quality” medical-grade mask are all extreme measures. Many are now considering reexamining heavy COVID-19 protocol that includes the CDC, which is rumored to be reevaluating its stance on masks.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reviewing its mask guidance, shifting its focus to Covid hospitalizations as a key measure of the severity of the outbreak and future guide for determining whether health safety protocols need to be tightened, according to the agency’s director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky.
“We must consider hospital capacity as an additional important barometer,” Walensky told the public during a White House Covid update Wednesday.
“We want to give people a break from things like mask-wearing when these metrics are better, and then have the ability to reach for them again should things worsen,” she said.
The CDC currently recommends that people wear masks in indoor public places regardless of their vaccination status if they live in an area with high viral transmission. Nearly every county in the U.S. has high transmission right now, according to CDC data. People are required by federal law to wear masks on planes, buses, trains and other forms of public transportation.
However, states have started easing public health measures as new infections from the omicron variant rapidly decline from their peak levels in January. New York and California have dropped mask mandates for businesses, while New Jersey has also gotten rid of its mask requirement for schools.
This Joe Biden’s “COVID theatre” is slowly destroying our country. Let’s all hope that aside from Marco Rubio, other Republicans should realize it too.
