Masks have become an unwelcome staple of American life with no end in sight. Mask recommendations change faster and more frequently than the weather. How did we get here?
In the medical world, particularly in operating rooms, masks protect patients undergoing surgery from bacteria passing from the mouths and noses of surgeons, nurses, and anesthesiologists, to an open surgical wound.
We already know based on objective, impartial, empirical data, that there is effectively no difference in covid case counts/hospitalizations/deaths in states that mandate masks and business restrictions (such as North Dakota) vs states which do not (such as its southern neighbor).
So, perhaps while looking at this graphic, the CDC had a brilliant idea: ok, one mask does not work, but what about… two masks!

After a 2-hour Zoom hearing viewed by tens of thousands of concerned citizens last week, Palm Beach County Circuit Court Judge John S. Kastrenakes unsurprisingly denied our clients’ motion for temporary injunctive relief against Palm Beach County’s unconstitutional mask mandate, paving the way for continued government tyranny under the guise of disease prevention in Palm Beach County. The full order is available on our blog.
Notably, Judge Kastrenakes’ Order states, “[a] mask is no more a ‘medical procedure’ than putting a Band-Aid on an open wound”, “[t]here is no reasonable expectation of privacy as to whether one covers their nose and mouth in public places” and “we do not have a constitutional or protected right to infect others”.
