  • 1. Why are masks required at the county meeting regardless of vaccination status? Because the vaccination does not prevent
    You from getting or transmitting the Covid strain
    Of the common cold.
    2. It’s cold & flu season now. What’s the survival rate
    If you do catch the Covid cold flu? The survival rate
    Is 99.9% globally.
    3. Are masks effective in stopping the Covid flu including
    The omicron variant? No. It’s a false narrative that
    They help prevent you from getting sick. It’s more
    Of a psychological tool and political statement to
    Further the global fear campaign.
    4. The pandemic was the perfect cover to implement
    The “great reset”.
    5. Are unvaccinated people responsible for the spread
    Of the Covid cold flu? No.
    6. The majority of the people who get sick with the
    Covid flu are people who are always sick. More
    People who have received the Covid vaccine get
    Sick than unvaccinated people.
    7. Why masks & vaccines then? Because they want
    To change how society behaves. It’s about politics
    And control.
    8, Do masks interfere with people communicating?
    Yes. We need to see each other’s facial expressions in
    Order to communicate effectively.
