Face coverings

The Commonwealth of Virginia does not need mandatory mask orders. If you check the OSHA guidelines they should not be worn the way the Governor has the mandate in place.  The face coverings should be a choice not a mandate.  If you truly follow the science, none of these mask protect anyone and they are actually causing more problems than they are solving, they are only security blankets for some and cause major medical issues for others.  Folks with TBI cannot wear them and are then verbally attacked by people that believe the media about people being selfish for not wearing them. These issues are caused by this mandate. When one of these TBI patients break and hurt someone or end up in the hospital because they can't handle the extra stress, who is going to pay that bill?
