To the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors: FIRE BARBARA FERRER Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer has reinstituted a countywide mask mandate with zero scientific justification. Ferrer uses loaded political language like “health racism” and “health equity” to describe the pandemic. It’s obvious that her objective in prolonging lockdowns is achieving political objectives, not protecting us from disease. Therefore, her tenure as public health director must end, effective immediately. The elected Board of Supervisors must fire her. Should the Board fail to take this recommended action, we can only conclude they are complicit. They are using the health director’s position to mandate lockdowns they otherwise have no authority to enact. We will respond accordingly at the ballot box. The following facts make clear the political motivations of the mask mandate: Los Angeles County was alone, nationwide, in reinstituting a mask mandate. Nobody else agrees with this. Only six Bay Area counties followed suit on the mask mandate after Ferrer instituted this – a testament to the political intent of the mandate. There is zero scientific evidence that masks help prevent the spread of Covid. An article claiming otherwise had to be retracted. Any benefit is insignificant, both absolutely and relative to the harm done. Indoor mask mandates are killing our businesses, communities, and ability to live normal lives. Throughout the entire Covid pandemic, LA Public Health has not had an epidemiologist on staff – though they claimed to be hiring one. Ferrer herself is not a medical doctor. She has a PhD in Social Welfare, and only a Masters in Public Health. Ferrer has been silent about the malignant transient camps spreading throughout the city, or the public health hazard they present. These camps are infested with rats, human waste, and other disease vectors, right in the midst of dense residential areas. Dr. Drew Pinsky warned us years ago that these could introduce Typhus, Bubonic Plague, and other medieval diseases far deadlier than Covid.
