Take the masks off of my doctor's office staff.

Why should fully vaccinated medical office staff need to wear a mask to care for a patient who they can associate with anywhere else (costco,  grocery store, restaurant) without a mask?  Hypocrisy at its best. It is purely political and there is absolutely no 'science ' involved in this decision. Beyond that, most staff are wearing surgical masks, and patients cloth masks, neither of which stop viruses. Contrary to what many believe,  masks really do not work. Again,  political.  Healthcare workers are mentally burned out, fragile and just plain done with it. They are leaving this field in droves. Help us, please.  Getting us out of these masks is the first step.
