Irritated by mask rules
I play racquetball. I like to play at Northridge Rec Center. I was playing cutthroat on Saturday and was informed by staff that only two players are allowed in a glass-enclosed court at a time. And masks must be worn over mouth and nose. At the same time a youth basketball game was being played. Ten kids on the court with referees. Some kids not wearing masks. When I challenged inconsistencies I was advised that masks were not mandated for a certain age group. The light bulb went off. COVID is like a carnival game. It knows everyone’s age. Wow!! Wonder how many of those kids still on Zoom education?
Let’s look at this from another perspective. A study published by Annals of Internal Medicine with 4,800 participants, found the infection rate 0.3 higher in unmasked versus masked. I’m sure mask advocates can cite studies showing great benefits of masks. Goes to prove that data, if tortured enough, will confess to anything.
How about giving people the opportunity to make their own decisions. Something called freedom. If you want to wear a mask have at it.
I believe Zoom should be streamed from schools and those who want to attend should be allowed. Churches do it, schools should too. Dr. Fauci says schools should have new ventilation systems. Guess he means like the ones installed at grocery stores, Home Depot, Lowe’s and all state and federal buildings.
Can’t we be more like Florida and Texas? Give us our freedom back.
