Oppose any regulation that endangers patients and practitioners alike

Practitioners should have the choice to follow CDC guidelines and safe practice protocols. Patients are free to choose a provider who aligns with their thinking on mask requirements but it is not okay to take the right away from office practices. Masks are a health protective device — requiring them is not discriminatory but discerning. Safety and welfare are the right of every individual. Freedom to endanger others is not.
