Masks

For a more in depth summary of the science on masks, please visit www.MaskOffMN.org.

When people wear masks or ‘face coverings’, some people feel nothing, while others experience chest pain, dizziness, headaches, trouble breathing, increased heart rate, and other problems. The timelines of guidance or mandates from government officials and health agencies makes no sense.

Government trained OSHA mask experts Tammy Clark & Kristen Meghan tell us the truth in this great interview: https://thehighwire.com/videos/mask-whistleblowers-tell-all/

Dr. Lee Meritt, MD surgeon gives a wonderful presentation during the America’s Frontline Doctor’s summit in October 2020 showing the truth about masks. https://www.americasfrontlinedoctors.com/custom_videos/mask-myths/

Fauci stated on February 21, 2021 on CNN’s State of the Union in an interview with Dana Bash that the government will likely try to enforce mask wearing as long as 2022.

Common Misconceptions

  • Masks don’t substantively decrease oxygen or increase carbon dioxide levels around breathing orifices. FALSE.
    Masks tested using OSHA-approved Carbon-Dioxide meter – shows that masks, face coverings, and face shields are dangerous and violates OSHA safety levels: https://www.brighteon.com/2275aaee-b4e5-410f-b131-1b62019dd349
  • Bandanas are less restrictive. FALSE
    Typically, people think that a bandana worn over the face would cause less oxygen and carbon dioxide fluctuations, than say, an N-95 or surgical mask, but that is not the case. Bandanas cause just as much fluctuation, if not more.
  • Face shields are safe. FALSE
    It is also typically though that face shields don’t cause fluctuations at all, but again, this is not the case. Face shields cause increase in carbon dioxide next to the breathing orifices that, levels which are associated with complaints of drowsiness and poor air.

Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), under US Department of Labor regulates safety and health in the workplace. OSHA provides information about the various levels of CO2 and the associated health complaints (https://ohsonline.com/Articles/2016/04/01/Carbon-Dioxide-Detection-and-Indoor-Air-Quality-Control.aspx?Page=2).

Carbon dioxide levels and potential health problems are indicated below

  • 250-350 ppm: background (normal) outdoor air level
  • 350-1,000 ppm: typical level found in occupied spaces with good air exchange
  • 1,000-2,000 ppm: level associated with complaints of drowsiness and poor air
  • 2,000-5,000 ppm: level associated with headaches, sleepiness, and stagnant, stale, stuffy air; poor concentration, loss of attention, increased heart rate and slight nausea may also be present.
  • >5,000 ppm: This indicates unusual air conditions where high levels of other gases also could be present. Toxicity or oxygen deprivation could occur. This is the permissible exposure limit for daily workplace exposures.
  • >40,000 ppm: This level is immediately harmful due to oxygen deprivation.

The outdoor concentration of carbon dioxide can vary from 250-400 parts per million (ppm) or higher in areas with vehicle high traffic or industrial activity. The indoor carbon dioxide level depends upon the number of people present, how long an area has been occupied, the amount of outdoor fresh air entering the area, and other factors. Carbon dioxide concentrations indoors can vary from several hundred parts per million to over 1,000 ppm in areas with many people present for an extended period and where fresh air ventilation is limited. Outdoor “fresh” air ventilation is important because it can dilute carbon dioxide in the indoor environment.

The amount of fresh air that should be supplied to a room depends on the type of facility and room. Ventilation should keep carbon dioxide concentrations below 1,000 ppm and create indoor air quality conditions that are acceptable to most individuals.”

OSHA statements regarding face coverings & surgical masks:

  • Are not considered personal protective equipment (PPE).”
  • Will not protect the wearer against airborne transmissible infectious agents due to loose fit and lack of seal or inadequate filtration.”

How is Wearing a Mask Against Religious Beliefs?

Freedom of religion protected by law. The bible says things about the breath and what it means and how it is our very spirit and the spirit of God, and what makes us alive, rather than dead. We inhale with inspiration, and exhale our last breath when we die (expiration).

  • God created me in His image and I am not to obstruct the breath of life.
  • When God breathed into man, man became a living soul. The breath is a sacred connection to the creator. When you breathe in, you breath in life, and when you breathe out, you cast away your cares. The bible says “cast your cares on me” (God).
  • The Bible says we should stand before God with our faces unveiled so that we can increase our glory in him. – Second Corinthians 3:18
  • Psalm 33:6 “By the word of the Lord, the heavens were made. He breathed the word and all the stars were born.” So, God breathed things into being.
  • Psalm 22, David wrote that God inhabits the praises of his people, such as singing.
  • Special notes on singing. In California, there was a time last year when people, even attending outdoor church were supposed to put on a mask, and not sing or even speak loudly.
    • Second Chronicles 20, Jehoshaphat sends a choir ahead of his army, and the three armies coming against them turned and destroyed each other.
    • Acts 16, Paul and silas were shackeld in prison. They started singing and an earthquake shook the foundation of the prison, door were opened, and the bindings were broken.
  • Covering your face is a sign of submission in the Muslim religion. This is explained here. 

Those that believe in God do not want to dishonor God by going against God’s design to breath and inspire.
