Absolutely Not! Read the Science.
 

These regulations are burdensome and not based on science. Smallpox killed 30% of people infected. The Virginia mortality rate for COVID is .03%. Anybody can calculate this ... ~3000 deaths divided by 8.5 million people. Here’s a study from 1981 saying that masks are not helpful - even in a hospital. https://pashev.me/files/orr-1981.pdf?fbclid=IwAR3RcllJ7bVYFWWUCcoQa0tOc1hUHCZm05NTC0j_7Dm7XU5AJ65zBKYAEEA.  So perhaps the health authorities in VA should actually do their homework and study the science rather than mindlessly accepting what they hear on the news.
