Orange County Mask Choice
Orange County Mask Choice
BE THE CHANGE. Unmask Our Children.
BE IT KNOWN that, we residents of the County of Orange are by nature free and independent pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy; and hereby revoking consent of the use of a face covering of any kind for students while at school in accordance with CDPH Masking Guidance and OCHCA Guidance for K-12 Schools, as well as Federal and State Laws.
By agreeing to (1) host the Super Bowl of approximately 70,000 attendees on February 13, 2022, and (2) host and attend the NFL Playoff Game of approximately 70,000 attendees on January 30, 2022, the Governor does not believe that “conditions of disaster or of extreme peril” exist, or that there is a state of emergency. Since there is no state of emergency, all mandates, guidance, guidelines, recommendations, policies, procedures, etc. arising out of or relating to the state of emergency also no longer exist. Therefore, your mask policy is not supported by medicine or science.
Our children have been deprived of oxygen for six to eight hours each day, five days a week. This has resulted in significant psychological, physiological, and psychosocial harms to our children.
Children need to breathe freely!
Over the past year, data shows that referrals to speech and language therapists have increased by between 25 to 300%, depending on locale. Younger children have suffered a 24% cognitive decline due to a combination of prolonged isolation, anti-social distancing, and universal masking of faces. Mental health issues in our young children such as anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation have skyrocketed due to these restrictive “safety” measures. This catastrophe in both cognitive development and mental health is entirely man-made and due to the failings of adults, particularly those in leadership positions, such as our public health officials and school officials who opted to “follow orders” blindly.
Clearly, the “science” and public health is broken in the State of California, including the County of Orange. This must end now! Our school community and larger county should respect each family’s personal medical and safety decisions for themselves and for their children.
With a mountain of scientific literature, legal precedent and empirical evidence from other schools that support mask-free or mask-optional policies throughout the United States, you have my support to take bolder steps towards moving our schools towards normalcy, which is long overdue to protect our children’s mental health and wellness.
