Strongly oppose
 

I strongly oppose this legislation. Not only is it government overreach on something that should be left for the business owners and employees to decide if it is effective and necessary in their particular workplace I have personally experienced health issues associated WITH mask wearing. I have had sinus and lung conditions directly related to extended mask wearing. If you try to legislate this, I and others will be bringing a class action lawsuit against the state. The benefit DOES NOT outweigh the risk. Scientifically covid is no longer a pandemic nor an epidemic. Scientifically the masks worn do not filter out all the virus spored. Scientifically you are breaking back in your own bacteria that is present in your mouth.  Scientifically this bacteria causes sinus and lung infections.  If you try and mandate this you will not be using scientific reasoning. You will be leaving the state open to costly legal action.
