Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse argued Thursday that the community must address “more important issues” than a mask mandate, after the city voted to reject the enforcement of a potential mandate that affects all of Los Angeles County. Bosse joined “TBEN & Friends” to discuss the backlash around the revived COVID-related push and why she believes in the “power of choice”.

MEDICAL EXPERT SLAMS LA COUNTY HEALTH DIRECTOR OVER MASK MANDATE PUSH

LILI FOREST: I strongly believe in the power of choice. I think we have learned a lot since 2020 and it has also become a function of enforcement. We have, in my view and in the view of the municipality, more important matters to enforce regarding mental health checks for the unmarried [and] keep our streets and our parks safe… Basically there is no judgment if someone wants to wear a mask. Wear a mask, of course. And if you feel vulnerable, wear a mask. And if you don’t want to wear a mask, don’t wear a mask. But it really became a function of where do we put our enforcement? LA County, Beverly Hills is still under Public Health Rules in LA County, but we in Beverly Hills don’t have to use our enforcement to enforce it. So if LA County resigns this mandate, we felt they could enforce it.
