What are the facts about Masks.
Multiple peer-reviewed studies, as well as the expert opinions of doctor’s and scientist’s, report masks are ineffective in protecting against so called Covid-19. The reason, “aerosol particles” (< 2.5 μm), are too fine to be blocked. They are so minute that they easily penentrate through, and around, every model of mask. The following video is an excellent and simple visual experiment to show you how this works.
Masks Don’t Work – A review of science relevant to COVID-19 social policy

- There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews
of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory
influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and
Does the science support wearing a mask? Based on the top studies, the answer is…NO!
Is wearing a mask harmful to the healthy? Yes. Blaylock: Face Masks Pose Serious Risks
- Dr. Russell Blaylock warns that not only do face masks fail to protect the healthy from getting sick, but they also create serious health risks to the wearer. The bottom line is that if you are not sick, you should not wear a face mas
- “This can vary from headaches, to increased airway resistance, carbon dioxide accumulation, to hypoxia, all the way to serious life-threatening complications.”
Ontario – This in-depth report provides more information on the ineffectiveness of masks against Covid-19. It includes a summary of the ONA’s (Ontario Nurses Association) grievance against St. Michael’s Hospital’s “vaccinate or mask” policy. The arbitrator rejected the hospital’s “evidence” that forcing unvaccinated nurses to wear surgical masks during flu season was necessary to protect patients from influenza. The arbitrator concluded that this claim “was not supported by science and was most likely an attempt to drive up vaccination rates among staff.”
BC’s health advisor, Dr. Bonnie Henry testified in a 2015 case saying, “there’s very scant evidence about the value of masks in preventing the transmission of influenza.” Henry goes on to say that there is no data to support wearing masks and, “When we look at individual strains circulating and what’s happening, I think we need it to be consistent with the fact that there was nothing that gave us support that providing a mask to everybody all the time was going to give us any additional benefit over putting in place the other measures that we have for the policy.”
Bonnie Henry further states that there is no real science behind the decisions she is making. View here
The BC CDC website confirms that masks are ineffective against aerosol particles.
The BC Ministry of Health also states, “Wearing a mask is not an effective measure against to keep yourself safe from viral infection.”
