Stop Anti-Maskers as COVID Cases Surge

Target: Clint Hickman, Chairman, Maricopa County Board of Supervisors

Goal: Protect citizens from the surge in COVID-19 cases by extending mask mandates across Maricopa County.

As states across America experience their highest increases in COVID-19 infections since spring, one county in Arizona is wondering whether masks should stay or go. Maricopa County officials are set to vote on whether or not they should extend the mandatory mask order they implemented in June. Demand that the supervisors put science and public safety before politics.

Over four million residents live in Maricopa County, which includes major cities like Phoenix and Scottsdale, as well as Arizona State University. If mask mandates were to be lifted, millions of lives would be put at risk. Even the president of ASU has pleaded with supervisors to keep the mandate in place. Despite the controversy surrounding masks, research has shown that COVID cases in the state decreased by over 75 percent once mask orders began.

Arizona, and America, are not out of the woods yet. As we approach flu season, COVID numbers will only grow worse before they become better. Extending the mask mandate now, before it is too late, will save countless lives in Arizona and beyond. Show your support for such an extension.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chairman Hickman,

Since mask orders went into effect in your state, COVID-19 cases dropped by over 75 percent. These numbers prove that masks do work. Now, as America sees an alarming increase in new COVID cases, it is more important than ever to take proactive steps that will protect the health and safety of your citizens.

Over four million lives are in your hands, and your decision extends far beyond the borders of Maricopa County. I ask that you extend your county’s mask mandate to ensure the health and safety of your residents, your students, and your fellow Americans.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. WE HAVE NOT WORN MASKS IN OUR OFFICE ALL YEAR AND NOT ONE PERSON HAS BEEN SICK!

      Well aren’t you special? You’re all lucky. If you get COVID, it damages your internal organs even if you recover. It is irresponsible and unconscionable to risk getting infected and increasing the risk of infecting others. Listen to the scientists and become informed. Just wear the damn mask.

      • no. If you want to look silly wearing one go ahead. Funny how people that wear them get sick and people like me that do not wear them are healthy

      • I’m in NYC and I’m in the “vulnerable” population and have never worn a mask until recently under duress to enter stores to shop. I’m keeping up with the information from frontline doctors and the CDC regarding mask-wearing. I suggest you do the same, but you probably won’t because fearful people like you have become wedded to you masks and you get off on the superiority of saying “listen to the science.” You’ll NEVER take the muzzles off because you’re enjoying the fear porn. You’re wearing the mask as a political emblem of wokeness. You’re depriving your brain of oxygen.

        • Mary Farquhar says:

          “Wear masks in public settings when around people not living in your household and particularly where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations. Masks may slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.”

        • Mary Farquhar says:

          *That’s* the information from the CDC, so I somehow doubt your appeal to authority carries much substance.

          By the way, being required to comply with a legal public health measure is not “duress,” so you can climb down off your cross.

  2. Covid only exists in demorat run states because demorats are all about controlling peoples life and blaming Trump for the economy. Just watch how these demorats state leaders will hike taxes on the citizens to make up for the huge loss for keeping businesses closed.
    I never wear a mask. What are you libbies going to do..get violent cause you don’t get your way as usual. Bring it on baby.

    • Evan Jane Kriss says:

      No, Lucy, COVID doesn’t only exist in Democratic states. Do you think a virus knows where it is? North Dakota, a Republican state, just reported the highest levels of new infections in the nation. As did Florida, Texas and many other states not run by Democrats. Are you really that stupid? Please follow the advice of the scientists, NOT politicians. Wear the mask to protect yourself and to prevent others from getting infected. Long term damage to your internal organs in survivors is shown. You willing to risk that?

    • Democrats are a disease. look at the hell holes they run like Illinois!!

  3. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    Don’t be stupid. Masks have been proven to stop the transmission and spread of COVID. ANY individual who is informed and responsible will do so.

    • Stupid? Is this the only word you know when addressing strangers who don’t agree with you? I’ll bet you don’t dare do this in their face. Easy to insult people while hiding behind a computer. You must’ve been bullied as a child and now want to get even from inside your safe space. Why don’t you stop your cyber-bullying? We’re laughing at you.

    We have a bunch of imbeciles, ignorant people out there, including law officials who fail to understand Covid 19 mainly transmit through saliva droplets, mostly from talking, sneezing, screaming, singing etc. A mask is first line defense against this highly contagious disease. I had never imagine there was so much ignorance in America until now.
