Considering that the COVID virus is smaller than .5 microns in size, and that the best resperator on the market today can only filter particals down to 1.5 microns, I would say that masks have been pointless from the beginning.

Exactly right. And it makes no difference if your mask is trying harder to validate a political agenda. So much for following science.

Just look at how Australia has been destroyed by leftist politicians who have used covid as a way to control the masses. There is NO freedom in Australia anymore.
For example my Daughter could not attend her grandmothers funeral because she lived in northern Victoria and her grandmother was being buried in NSW. Only 10 people could attend her funeral however the same politicians that mandated that allowed 20,000 to attend a football game in Sydney. Priving the whole covid thing is a scam and a way to control us all.
BTW in Australia digital vaccine passports are becoming mandatory and if you want to keep your job you must get the jab.

Its difficult not viewing Australia as a test bed for what will be tolerated in the rest of the world. Honing the practices and policies into a program to control everyone.

What most Americans do not realize, and no one has told them: Is that there is NO TEST currently available to TEST FOR THE So-Called DELTA varient. If not test exists, then there is no official verification that ANYONE has it. If you can’t determine if anyone has it, why are we talking about it, making rules about it, and acting as if we know who has it and who doesn’t? Just more lies, the government is spreading as fake science and news.

The people that are pushing for the mask to be worn don’t wear them.

I am glad to see i voted with the highest number of votes. It gives me hope that not everyone has lost their minds over this virus.
As a former Public Health Nurse who went through fit testing before being OK’d to wear an N95 mask as part of emergency preparedness training, I do know a little something about masks. Most masks worn by the public do very little to protect against the virus because they don’t stop the spread of the virus and most people do not wear or use the mask correctly.
If people would look at the response to the virus from several thousand feet up, they would see that lockdowns and masks did nothing to stop the spread. Public Health reached the conclusion that lockdowns would not work years ago, so I have no idea how we got where we are now.
what works best are still the same things that have always worked the best: frequent handwashing, staying home when sick, staying away from sick people, protecting the vulnerable, and when appropriate, vaccination. No mandates are needed for any of these. Vaccination mandates do not recognize natural immunity. Vaccine passports are very discriminatory and unAmerican. I am fully vaccinated and I suspect I recently recovered from covid so have natural immunity also.

Id be interested in your opinion and that of other health practitioners on the idea of wearing gloves instead, as it appears other viruses (virii?) are spread more commonly by things we all touch. I am NOT science, nor do I play a disease expert on tv, just curious.

I got Covid 19 after having vaccines x 2 and meticulous precautions, masks, hand washing – mostly staying home – I am losing faith in the mask mandate. Faucci is a joke

Natural immunity has been ignored completely by the “scientists” so no corroborating or refuting data to prove or disprove effectiveness of the “vaccine” insisted upon by the government. Also the “vaccine” is not a vaccine at all as it does not meet the definition of one. It does not contain part of the virus and does not create immunity or precent transmission. This data is irrefutable and also absent from the conversation. You will continue to see greater numbers of vaccinated becoming infected because they are becoming a greater percentage of the population. Eventually the unvaxed infection and hospitalization rates will be dropped from the conversation in the same fashion as claims the “vaccine” will make people immune and end the pandemic. Still not a robot.

What “science”? If I wear my piece of single layer bandana cloth over my face, I and others are safe? What a joke. If you can smell an odor through what you’re wearing you can inhale/exhale a virus; size-wise, if a particle is the sun, a virus is our moon! That’s SCIENCE! But I have a way out: if you see a virus coming at you, just tell it you’re a US Postal worker, illegal immigrant, or homeless and EXEMPT from Rona.

Mask mandates are a controlling measure used widely by the democrats as a tool to justify mail-in voting to steal elections and keep Americans living in constant fear with the help of the MSM and false statistics on Covid-19 deaths!

This was my thought as well. I am very curious how the election turns out if the “emergency” measures usurping voting laws are not enacted.

It’s all about Freedom at this point. Remember two weeks to flatten the curve? I live in Michigan who’s lib Governor put in place one of the most Draconian policies in the Country. She destroyed small businesses and when the State Supreme Court ruled against her, the shill Health Department continued her policies. We are totally fed up with COVID and Masking. We want our lives back!
From what I have seen it is the approved method of treating COVID that seems to be killing people.

A solid point. You may have noticed the increase in PSAs talking about blood clots, strokes and heart issues. This is anecdotal evidence but i know of several family members who experienced these issues after the shot including a spontaneous abortion in a healthy 25 yr old. If anyone has real stats please share.

It is a proven fact that Surgical masks, not the store bought designer mask, are good to 3 microns. The COVID virus is 1 Micron. The mask is thus virtually worthless to stop the spread of Covid. In February of 2020, I contracted COVID19 as I work in the Lab at the VA and was out for about a week and then not allowed to work for another week. I went to the OSHA website to see the efficacy of face masks and their web site had numerous studies that revealed that mask were virtually ineffective for anything but for keeping a relatively small field sterile from aerosolization during a close contact medical procedure. Interesting that after the mask mandates went into effect, every one of those studies disappeared from the OSHA site.

Absolutely correct and common knowledge. Even his eminence Lord Fauci said as much in the early stages. Then I guess the science changed.

2020 Study from EPA

Public health experts recommend wearing face masks as tools to protect others from breathing potentially infectious particles. At the request of University of North Carolina (UNC) Hospitals, EPA scientists are working to understand the effectiveness of masks to protect the wearer against the virus through a series of projects in collaboration with UNC researchers. Researchers tested how well different masks and modifications filter out airborne salt particles, which are the same size as the smallest SARS-CoV-2 particles, but are not harmful. Members of the research team wore the face coverings to do the testing themselves.
“We were fortunate to have the lab already prepared for a different study before the COVID-19 pandemic set in, so we were able to pivot to help answer important questions UNC Hospitals and other researchers had about masks,” said Dr. James Samet, a research biologist and collaborator on the projects. “We’ve performed hundreds of tests to provide the most useful information for decision makers and the public to help fight this virus.”
In one study, the researchers sought to determine whether alternatives to high-efficiency N95 masks reserved for health care workers could offer similar protection for hospital personnel in the event of shortages. They tested the filtration ability of expired N95 masks, N95 masks that had been sterilized for reuse, and dozens of other face mask alternatives. The results show that both expired N95 masks and sterilized N95 masks provided the same level of protection as new N95 masks with greater than 95 percent filtration. Other alternatives provided less protection. For example, surgical masks with ties provided 71.5 percent filtration, while surgical masks with ear loops only provided 38.1 percent. Knowing the relative performance of alternatives to new N95 masks will help hospital administrators make evidence-based decisions to protect their staff.

This isn’t leadership, it’s a fundraiser. I came here looking for AMAC’s coronavirus guidance, only to find a poll that’s nothing more than a finger in the wind to see where the money is blowing. What a sham using political paranoia to steal money from conservative voters. Shame on you AMAC.

I am an RN, working full time at age 68. I live my work. I was required to follow CDC masking and PPE guidelines while working. Because I had a higher risk of being exposed, I chose to have all groceries and personal supplies delivered. I immediately washed all clothes and showered after my shift and even cose to forego haircuts. Nonetheless, I tested positive in December 3020, wound up in the hospital and spent 6 weeks in the hospital, 2 of them in ICU. They told my family I wasn’t going to survive. I could not walk on discharge.The remdesivir damaged my liver and the virus invaded my heart. I was on no medication prior to having COVID. Despite all this, I returned to work in Febrary.
My point in all this is if all the very strict precautions I took did not prevent COVID, why all these restrictions? Almost everyone I work with has had COVID to varying degrees.

I believe if antibody testing was allowed it would show that over 90% of this country has contracted the virus in one form or another

I have not worn a mask since the beginning except in the medical setting because they wouldn’t let me in for my appointments.. I have been attacked by people saying that I am spreading the virus when I don’t even have it. It’s all fear! They are trying to take over our government and take over us, which they have done for years with slavery. I am not a sheeple! I am a Christian and I am covered in the blood of Jesus and protected by the promises that God gives me through Jesus Christ.

There are many ways to fight this virus with therapeutic treatments, but they have been suppressed in order that this so called vaccine can be mandated under emergency authorization. If therapeutics
were authorized and promoted early, there would have been no need for an experimental vaccine. Just think how many lives could have been saved. How tragic.

It is a form of control…I’ve had the virus 2 times…and I have had the vaccine…and got sick again with the mask on…I am not a sheep…unfortunately…the more people that follow the mask mandate…the more they have control…

I think that the whole world are being manipulated. There is something or some event occurring that would cause panic and cayuse world over. What time did the moon actually set compared to published forecast?

It has been pointed out that Japan has been 98% masked & they are seeing a surge in the covid virus. That’s the science. We should be looking at remedies until a trustworthy vaccine can be produced.

My answer reflects the fact that I believe there is an agenda to remove our freedoms. Never have other, more virulent illnesses been treated in this manner, with this intent. We are being manipulated into division.

Masks do have the benefit of reminding one to not touch your face or eyes after being somewhere, or touching things, that can normally spread any type of germ. Other than that however, we know these cutesy cloth coverings and surgical paper don’t really do that much. It does seem awfully strange that the Biden admin. is pushing more masks while knowingly opening the border to illegals AND terrorists to come into our country with many testing positive for Covid and allowed to spread into the interior of our country. The bigger question is why? It’s not that they don’t care, it’s that this is according to a PLAN..

The immigrants are being flown and bussed to strategic locations in order to bolster democrat rolls. The illegals are given a packet including instructions on how to vote. If this planned incursion fails the democrats have no hope of retaining power. I think it raises more questions about legitimacy of the 2020 election
