● Decades of the highest-level scientific evidence (meta-analyses of multiple randomized
controlled trials) overwhelmingly conclude that medical masks are ineffective at
preventing the transmission of respiratory viruses, including SAR-CoV-2.
● Those arguing for masks are relying on low-level evidence (observational retrospective
trials and mechanistic theories), none of which are powered to counter the evidence,
arguments, and risks of mask mandates.
● The majority of the population is at very low to almost no risk of severe or lethal disease
from CoVID-19. Children are at an extraordinarily low risk of dying from CoVID-19.
Based on CDC published data, 99.99815% of children that contract CoVID-19 survive.
● Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 among children in schools and daycares is very rare.
● Masks worn properly are well documented to cause harm to their wearers. Masks worn
improperly, re-used, or contaminated are dangerous.
● Any reasonable risk to benefit analysis of medical masks concludes that the risks
overwhelmingly outweigh the benefits.
● Children are at imminent risk of harm from mask mandates
