I'd like to know the level of interest in our community to drop this mandate or to at least lobby and have our voices heard. WyoPubHealth said they receive both calls of complaints and in support of Harrist extending this over reaching governance. Even on TC govs own exemption mandate (online) document - it continues to refer old data from April and June of 2020 in it's support of mask mandate.
JHWHF has a couple of resources about why masks potentially do not work and here is another, done by the CDC. Interestingly, when you search this online (I use duckduck), sites like ABC news tout their study as a positive in support of mask mandates. I am really not sure how they extrapolate that conclusion, as - as far as I can tell, they prove that masks impact the decrease of case growth and death growth by at best 2%. I don't think this is very statistically significant. Here is the link: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7010e3.htm
Thanks it's so good to know there is a supportive community of likeminded individals and I very much wish to meet and organize with you!
