According to a report from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has mandated that its employees wear masks, not only in the office, but also while on Zoom video-conference calls.
What? Does Zoom spread the virus now, too?
In an email from Natural Resources Secretary Preston Cole:
“Also, wear your mask, even if you are home, to participate in a virtual meeting that involves being seen — such as on Zoom or another video-conferencing platform — by non-DNR staff”
There is zero medical evidence that I can find that provides for any benefit of wearing a mask on a video-conference.
Cole said they want to set an example, for others, about taking public safety seriously.
Not too long ago, Dr. Anthony Fauci said wearing a mask is more of a symbol.
Symbol of what? At what point, if not long ago, has this gone way overboard into a symbol of power and submission? When do we force everyone to wear burkas since they cover more of the face and obviously provide more protection?
GOP Rep. Joe Sanfelippo of New Berlin said this is "ridiculous".
“I’m more inclined to support things that actually do help as opposed to just putting on an appearance of helping,” he said.
Are mandatory face shields just around the corner? I wonder if any members of Congress or NIH, CDC, etc.. bought any stock in companies that produce masks, just a couple of months ago?
We've shut down mostly small businesses while allowing larger corporate companies to remain open and profitable. We've forced people to wear masks in order to enter and operate businesses even in areas that aren't and weren't hard hit by the virus.
We are starting to look more like China than the United States of America. At what point does it stop? Does it stop?
