      It has been over a year and six months since February 3rd 2020, when the U.S. declared Covid to be a health emergency. There were 200 deaths and 9800 cases worldwide reported at that time, according to American Journal of Managed Care. The world population was 7.7 billion with 331 million people in the United States. People went into immediate panic and there was chaos everywhere. With global shutdowns, wearing a mask was introduced to us as the best and only case scenario. However with time and research, we are starting to learn that it may not be as effective as people would like to think. This petition is to protect and support the parents who have chosen for medical, religious, and personal reasons to not support their children in masks. 

      We all endured some of the hardest times of our lives with businesses closing, people losing close relatives, and parents in urgent need of childcare due to the mandatory shutdown of our schools. Many of us chose to rely on Science to solve this biochemical warfare, many of us chose to rely on a higher power for comfort and security. Nonetheless this has been an uphill battle for us all. Our only systemic hope was to be able to rely on sources such as WHO and CDC for verifiable and unbiased information as well as support on how to operate our businesses, hospitals, home life, school systems, and the world as we know it. However, with numerous fallacies in the reports shared by CDC, there is a community at large proving daily false positives and cases with too many comorbidities to claim factual data on the dangers of this pandemic. You can research this for yourself, as the Food and Drug Administration Federal Agency states on their site, that:

    “Remember that positive predictive value (PPV) varies with disease prevalence when interpreting results from diagnostic tests. PPV is the percent of positive test results that are true positives. As disease prevalence decreases, the percent of test results that are false positives increase.

     For example, a test with 98% specificity would have a PPV of just over 80% in a population with 10% prevalence, meaning 20 out of 100 positive results would be false positives.
    The same test would only have a PPV of approximately 30% in a population with 1% prevalence, meaning 70 out of 100 positive results would be false positives.            This means that, in a population with 1% prevalence, only 30% of individuals with positive test results actually have the disease.
    At 0.1% prevalence, the PPV would only be 4%, meaning that 96 out of 100 positive results would be false positives.
Health care providers should take the local prevalence into consideration when interpreting diagnostic test results.”

    For every study supporting masks, you can find a study showing charts and data that challenge their effective use. Below in the links you will find a curve chart sharing in school settings requiring masks and school settings with optional wear, the curve did not shift enough to provide a solid resolution for a promising increase in safer health management. There is no concrete and verifiable information to prove the masks are a safe prevention tactic or even reduction method from Covid-19 for our children. Adolescent persons do not know how to sanitize properly enough for the masks to be worn effectively. It would take years to teach this. Meanwhile, the risk of carcinogens, allergens, and pathogens getting in their eyes and lungs increases tremendously with the masks. We don’t know the ramifications of hazardous exposure we are exerting onto our children long term. Furthermore, medical concerns have been closely monitored due to saliva and bacteria being trapped inside the mask for long hours. As well as concerns of acidic levels of CO2, from breathing in one’s own air. The masks provided to the general public do not have the medical protection that the health industry and essential employees have been mandated to wear. On the box of every mask sold via retail, there is a clear label disclaiming the prevention or protection of the aforementioned viral attacks. Mandating masks actually gives many parents and children false hope. Other studies have shown the virus to be easily contracted through the eyes, which are not covered by the recommended wear of the masks. 

     People in our community are fear mongering over the most recent Covid-19 variant. This variant is found to be quite contagious but also less deadly. Additionally, there are now vaccines available to help those with vulnerability become more immune and have better outcomes if and when they do contract the virus. 

    Our children are not the Government’s lab rats. If you are more comfortable with your child in a mask, that should be your decision. If you are not comfortable with your child in a mask it should equally be that parent’s decision. The CDC is making a political recommendation based upon extremely misguided data.

    After what some might argue the hardest year of their lives, it is absolute cruelty to send these children back to school and expect these children to wear masks 6-8 hours a day. The cry has been “follow the science and trust the CDC,” however their information changes daily as they are uncertain and heavily misguided as to cases and deaths taking place due to the virus. For example, in Fluvanna County since the beginning of the pandemic, we have had a report of 1,966 cases with 21 deaths, in a countywide population of roughly 27,000. That is under 7% have contracted the virus and under .01% have been associated with a fatal case. I defer back to the FDA, who stated, “At 0.1% prevalence, the PPV would only be 4%, meaning that 96 out of 100 positive results would be false positives.” I wonder how many false positives our county and schools might have seen. 

    Please do not mistaken this petition for lack of community care. We are deeply concerned and empathize with those who have suffered and lost loved ones associated to Covid-19. Many of us have also experienced hardship due to this pandemic. However, if you follow the Science, it is clear the numbers are far too small and spread out in our local community to determine that 93% never to have gotten it would be safer with mandatory masks. While we pay mind to the Science, we cannot ignore the significance of herd immunity. Zero children have been reported for mortality without pre-existing medical conditions. Let us spare the children from our political battles. 

    Please see below for resources regarding the harmful effects. I urge you to sign this petition and encourage your neighbors to have the right to choose whether or not to mask their children. We understand the risk and many of us spend day and night researching beyond what the media has shared with us. Please stand up to our local School Board and demand that they listen to their constituents. We want to know we are heard. When 98% of a room stands in solidarity for masks to remain optional, it should not matter what a city with other demographics might do. Follow the Science. Pay close attention to our local needs. Most importantly, do what is best for our children. Our schools are depending on it. 

Thank you,

Masks are Harmful: 17 Ways That Masks Can Cause Harm

Medical masks adversely affect respiratory physiology and function
Medical masks lower oxygen levels in the blood
Medical masks raise carbon dioxide levels in the blood
SARS CoV-2 is armed with a “furin cleavage site” that makes it more pathogenic
Medical masks trap exhaled viral (and other) pathogens in the mouth/mask interspace, increase viral/infectious load, and increase the severity of disease
SARS CoV-2 Becomes More Dangerous When Blood Oxygen Levels Decline
The furin cleavage site of SARS CoV-2 increases cellular invasion, especially during hypoxia (low blood oxygen levels)
Cloth masks may increase the risk of contracting Covid-19 and other respiratory infections
Wearing a face mask may give a false sense of security
Masks compromise communications and reduce social distancing
Untrained and inappropriate management of face masks
Masks Worn Imperfectly Are Dangerous
Masks collect and colonize viruses, bacteria, and mold
Wearing a face mask makes the exhaled air (respiratory plumes) go into the eyes
Contact tracing studies show that asymptomatic carrier transmission is very rare
Face masks and stay at home orders prevent the development of herd immunity
Face masks are dangerous and contraindicated for a large number of people with pre-existing medical conditions and disabilities

"Despite ‘Delta’ Alarmism, US COVID Deaths Are at Lowest Level Since March 2020, Harvard and Stanford Professors Explain."

"Many Pediatric specialists are concerned that a blanket assumption that immunosuppressed children of any kind are all at increased risk will cause considerable long-term educational and social harm to these children."

"Children are not Super Spreaders.”

The study could not provide evidence for a relevant asymptomatic (“silent”) spread of SARS-CoV-2 in childcare facilities, neither in a low nor a high prevalence setting. This finding adds to the evidence that childcare and educational settings do not play a crucial role in driving the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

“Professor Michael Braungart, director at the Hamburg Environmental Institute and co-founder of the world-renowned Cradle to Cradle environmental standard has told Ecotextile News that mask wearers unwittingly run the risk of breathing in carcinogens, allergens and tiny synthetic microfibers by wearing both textile and nonwoven surgical masks for long periods of time.”
