We are dropping our mask mandate 6/1/21. Can you provide a script we can post letting our patients know we are dropping the mask mandate?
Can’t wait to be mask-free.
Of course our clinical staff have always worn level 3 surgical masks and will continue to do so during procedures rendered in operatories.
Fingers crossed you can help.
In spring 2020, I understood face masks to be a danger to me. That was based on personal experience.
Based on extrapolation, I knew masks were a danger to millions of others.
Based on my voracious reading of any published science that is mask related, eventually I understood them to be a danger to virtually everyone. The science is hard to challenge at this point: face masks harm you, face masks harm children, face mask harm the elderly, the healthy, and the sick. That’s not even up for debate. The only question really is how much they harm you: badly or really, really badly? They are not neutral. They are not a minor inconvenience.
There were no shortage of LRC readers who helped to pound this into my thick head. Thank you for that. The fact that Mr. Rockwell makes contributors post their personal email address is one reason this website is so fantastic at being a beacon of truth.
By May 2020, the published science existed for me to be able to understand that worn incorrectly face masks can actually help to spread disease — meaning someone else’s mask can be a harm to you.
By this point, I see face masks as total lunacy. I see mask wearing in the general public as the work of sick minds and the masking of children as the sickest of all, with the forced masking of the elderly and infirm as a close second, and the cruel masking of anyone who comes in to visit an Alzheimer’s patient as a very close third. Try that sometime if you wake up one morning and say to yourself “I know what would be fun! To confuse a loved one with Alzheimer’s even more.” Sick. Uncaring. Myopic world views are required to engage in such anti-human activity, and to do so on a mass scale is totally sick.
Dear reader, thank you for writing me to ask about this policy.
Things To Consider When Crafting A Face Mask Policy
A pithy sentence on the door might be my preference, but I recognize the need for professionalism and an effort to reach across a spectrum of patients.
A good notice needs to sound official.Read More
