Will you stop wearing a face mask for Covid-19 protection simply when you decide?
Or will you stop wearing when certain politicians tell you that its OK to stop?
Or will you stop because Science says that fully vaccinated persons can safely do all normal activities without masks?
Maybe you will stop wearing because you have young children and kids cannot read non-verbal communication when parents’ faces are covered.
Some people simply stop wearing face masks because they choose to stop. For example, In Santa Cruz, California, students of RitaRivera.com – who teaches restorative motion – choose not to wear face masks. Since 2016 Rita Rivera offers Restorative Movement & Dance classes and workshops throughout the county of Santa Cruz, California. Rita Rivera’s desire is to keep the body moving so people age gracefully.With Covid-19 restrictions easing, Rita Rivera is expanding classes and workshops in Santa Cruz, CA.
Various protests over wearing masks have erupted around the USA, e.g., Lee County, Palm Beach county.
The face mask protest of a fourth grade, 10 year old boy living in Florida went viral recently. He protested that the rules are not fairly enforced. The story is covered in depth 5/19/21 by The Epoch Times.
Recently, a group of GOP lawmakers refused to wear a mask on the House floor. A fine of $500. can be imposed for the first offense and $2,500 for the next offense. See The Epoch Times coverage.
What we do know is that some politicians and policy makers (which include Dr. Fauchi and Gov. Newsom) continue to advocate for face masks contrary to what SCIENCE says, i.e., that fully vaccinated persons are free to go back to normal life and do not need to wear face masks whether inside or outside.
Check out the website for the Center for Disease Control which says that all persons fully vaccinated do not need to wear face masks. Despite the CDC guidelines, California Gov. Newsom requires face masks for all California residents until June 15, 2021. Gov Newsom recently signed a $316 million contract for 429 million face masks. A Chinese manufacturer will supply the face masks to California.
When you see Dr. Fauchi on television he typically wears a face mask — even though he is fully vaccinacted. Senator Rand Paul, a medical MD before becoming a politician, thinks Dr. Fauchi acts “like an ignoramus” concerning wearing of face masks.
Check the research which says that for over a year i.e., since March and April of 2020, it’s well documented that fully vaccinated persons do not infect others and are highly unlikely to become infected.
Per report of the C.D.C., roughly 60% of adults in the USA have received at least ONE dose of the Covid-19 aka CCP Virus vaccine as of 5/17/21.
As a licensed California psychologist, I advocate that parents pay close attention to how their children react to you and others who are wearing masks. Look at the research literature as well as what other parents report. Masks hide non-verbal communication which is critical for children learning language. Masks promote fear. Children drop their masks and may be recycling bacteria the dropped masks pick up. Be careful, parents!
