    Exclamation CA Gov. Newsom issues fatwa declaring face diapers mandatory statewide

    No law, no representative government, no debate...not that it would have made a fiddler's $#@! of a difference in Kalifornia.

    Just a fatwa from Dear Leader.



    California Gov. Newson Makes Wearing Masks Mandatory in Public

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...ory-in-public/

    Joshua Caplan 18 Jun 2020

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Thursday signed an order making wearing face coverings mandatory while in public or high-risk settings, citing health concerns due to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

    Californians will be required to wear a mask while in line or inside public spaces, at the workplace, and when waiting for or while riding public transportation, the newly-issued state guidelines say. People engaged in hiking, running or bicycling do not need to wear a mask. Children under two-years-old and individuals with medical conditions are also exempt from the order.

    “Science shows that face coverings and masks work,” Newsom said in a statement.”They are critical to keeping those who are around you safe, keeping businesses open, and restarting our economy.”

    “Simply put, we are seeing too many people with faces uncovered – putting at risk the real progress we have made in fighting the disease,” the Democrat governor added. “California’s strategy to restart the economy and get people back to work will only be successful if people act safely and follow health recommendations. That means wearing a face covering, washing your hands, and practicing physical distancing.”

    NEW: Californians are now required to wear face coverings in public spaces – particularly indoors or when physical distancing is not possible. 😷

    New York, Michigan, and Maryland currently also have statewide mask directives.

    The directive comes after California registered 5,000 deaths from the coronavirus, and 160,000 cases total. On Wednesday, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health reported an additional 34 deaths and 2,129 new cases of the illness. Barbara Ferrer, the county’s public health director, explained the sizeable increase in cases was attributed to a “backlog of 600 test results being reported by one lab.”

    Newson’s mask order also comes as restaurants, bars, malls, hair salons, parks, beaches, hotels, and gyms have been given the green light to reopen in the state. Nightclubs and movie theaters still remain closed.

    In May, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) required residents to wear face coverings when they leave home. “I say real men wear face masks when they’re going to be with other people in public,” Garcetti recently told MSNBC. “It’s our gateway to increasing freedom and more economic activity and greater opening up. I think modeling that is something so important for all of our leaders, and any men who don’t want to wear face masks got to get over ourselves and just do it.”

    “Science shows that face coverings and masks work,”

    What science??? They invoke the big "S" and that settles it.

    Fact is, science shows just the opposite!

    Excerpts from Studies Involving Mask-Wearing

    ● Study on CDC website which reviewed ten different randomized clinical trials,
    world-wide, reviewing highly infectious respiratory virus transmission which
    found “no significant reduction” in “transmission with the use of face masks.”

    including COVID-19.” The WHO recommended against wearing medical
    masks as they “may create a false sense of security” against COVID-19, while
    it further went out of its way to reiterate that there is “no evidence available on
    a [mask’s] usefulness to protect non-sick persons.”

    ● Wearing respirators come[s] with a host of physiological and psychological
    burdens. These can interfere with task performances and reduce work
    efficiency. These burdens can even be severe enough to cause life-
    threatening conditions if not ameliorated. Arthur Johnson, Journal of Biological
    Engineering (2016).

    ● When the N95 respirator was tested in use in 2010, the “dead-space oxygen
    and carbon dioxide levels did not meet the Occupational Safety and Health
    Administration’s ambient workplace standards.”
    ● In a study conducted by the National Taiwan University Hospital fifteen years
    ago, it was found that the use of N-95 masks in healthcare workers caused
    them to experience hypoxemia, a low level of oxygen in the blood, and
    hypercapnia, an elevation in the blood's carbon dioxide levels. Not only did
    the mask create dangerously low levels of oxygen and an equally dangerous
    spike in carbon dioxide in the human body, the study found that “medical staff
    are at increased risk of getting 'Severe acute respiratory syndrome' (SARS)
    [from] wearing N95 masks….” Lastly, the study’s authors further found that
    “dizziness, headache, and short[ness] of breath are commonly experienced by
    the medical staff wearing N95 masks” and that the “ability to make correct
    decisions” was also likely impaired. The Physiological Impact of N95 Masks on
    Medical Staff, National Taiwan University Hospital (June 2005).
    ● Studies show that headaches in medical professionals are commonly found as
    a result of mask-wearing, which is a sign of hypoxia: Just under 10% of the
    healthcare workers in one study experienced such severe symptoms that they
    were forced to take, on average, two full days of sick leave from their
    healthcare jobs, while 60% of these healthcare professionals “required use of
    abortive analgesics because of headache.” Headaches and the N95 Face-Mask

    Ong BK, Acta Neurologica Scandinavica, 28 Feb 2006, 113(3):199-202.
    ● A more recent study involving 159 healthcare workers aged 21 to 35 years of
    age found that 81% developed headaches from wearing a face mask – which
    is a sign of dangerously low levels of oxygenation – and ALL healthcare
    workers felt like the headaches affected their work performance. Ong JJY et al.

    difficulties associated with the use of the mask. Are Face Masks Effective Against
    Covid-19? The Science Times (May 25, 2020).
    ● “It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood
    oxygenation as much as 20%” which in turn "can lead to a loss of
    consciousness, as happened to the hapless fellow driving around alone in his
    car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to pass out, and to crash his car and
    sustain injuries. I am sure that we have several cases of elderly individuals or
    any person with poor lung function passing out, hitting their head. This, of
    course, can lead to death.” Are Face Masks Effective Against Covid-19? The Science
    Times (May 25, 2020).
    ● In this study, researchers examined the blood oxygen levels in 53 surgeons.
    They measured blood oxygenation before surgery as well as at the end of

    surgeries. The researchers found that the mask reduced the blood oxygen
    levels significantly. The longer the duration of wearing the mask, the greater
    the fall in blood oxygen levels. Bader A et al. Preliminary report on surgical mask
    induced deoxygenation during major surgery. Neurocirugia 2008;19:12-126.
    ● In a study of dentists and dental assistants who adopted new protocols since
    COVID, headaches jumped from 16% pre-COVID to 65%, with half of
    respondents (49%) noting it was not hard to breathe “all the time” and 40%
    noting it was hard to breathe some of the time. https://www.dentistryiq.com/covid-

    ● The immunity of the mask wearer – and his or her subsequent ability to fight
    off COVID-19 or any other harmful infection – is actually harmed by wearing a
    mask. The drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) noted in many studies is directly
    associated with an impairment in immunity. In terms of the biological effects,
    what the studies have shown is that the lowered rate of oxygen (hypoxia) in
    turn inhibits the production of the type of primary immune cells that our bodies
    use to fight viral infections (known as the CD4+ T-lymphocyte). Functionally
    speaking, what happens inside our bodies is that the decrease in oxygen
    causes a spike in the level of a compound called hypoxia-inducible-factor-1
    (HIF-1). Once that compound spikes, it in turn inhibits the production of T-
    lymphocytes we need for our bodies to fight off invaders and infections. Yet
    worse, the lack of oxygen stimulates a powerful inhibitor of the immune system
    (a cell called the Tregs), which in turn makes one’s body ripe for contracting a
    COVID-19 infection and experiencing said illness more severely: “This sets
    the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19, and making the
    consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask may very
    well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much worse
    outcome.” Russell Blaylock, Id. (quoting Shehade H et al. Cutting edge: Hypoxia-Inducible
    Factor-1 negatively regulates Th1 function. J Immunol 2015;195:1372-1376. See also:

    ● People with cancer may be at a further risk from hypoxia – as cancer cells
    grow best in a bodily environment that is low in oxygen. Low oxygen also
    promotes systemic inflammation which, in turn, promotes “the growth, invasion
    and spread of cancers.” Aggarwal BB. Nucler factor-kappaB: The enemy within. Cancer
    Cell 2004;6:203-208, and Blaylock RL. Immunoexcitatory mechanisms in glioma proliferation,
    invasion and occasional metastasis. Surg Neurol Inter 2013;4:15.
    ● Repeated episodes of low oxygen – known as intermittent hypoxia – also
    “causes atherosclerosis” and hence increases “all cardiovascular events” such

    as heart attacks – as well as adverse cerebral events like stroke. Blaylock,
    quoting Savransky V et al. Chronic intermittent hypoxia induces atherosclerosis. Am J Resp
    Crit Care Med 2007;175:1290-1297.
    ● It appears the virus may be able to enter the brain. According to those who
    practice neurosurgery, in most instances where the virus enters the brain, it
    does so by way of the olfactory nerves (smell nerves) – and accordingly – by
    wearing a mask “the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape, and will
    concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into
    the brain.’’ Blaylock, reviewing Baig AM et al. Evidence of the COVID-19 virus targeting the

    Attorney Leigh Dundas' letter to County Supervisors in California warning them about mandating face masks.

    Her work has already led to Orange County Chief Health Officer Dr. Nichole's resignation.

    NONE of these Health Board Mandates (or Governor's mandates) have any legal ground, and can be defeated in court.

    Board of Supervisors
    _________________
    _________________
    Re: County Health Officer Order Regarding Mandatory Masks
    Dear Board of Supervisors:
    I write asking that you immediately walk back the recent proposal by the County Health
    Officer regarding mask-wearing. I will lead with my conclusion: (1) the proposal runs
    counter to accepted medical and scientific studies – including World Health Organization
    studies and the CDC’s recent study published last week which found “no significant
    reduction” in “transmission with the use of face masks” (2) the proposal puts county residents
    at risk of severe injury based on the multiplicity of medical studies showing mask-wearing
    leads to hypoxia which can precipitate fatal cardiac and other life-endangering events, and (3)
    the County Health Officer has neither the relevant credentials nor the judgment to have made
    this order.
    By way of background: I am a veteran litigator, who previously represented Fortune 500
    companies in hi-tech and environmental disputes, as well as advised municipalities not unlike
    yours, and I have also practiced a fair bit of litigation in the healthcare arena. I am thus quite
    familiar with the scientific studies in this context, as well as the law in this arena.
    As a starting point, I should note that under Health & Safety Code 101000, you appointed the
    County Health Officer, and by extension, you can also reverse this decision: “Each board of
    supervisors shall appoint a health officer who is a county officer.” I would also note that
    under H&S Code 101029, the Sheriff “may” enforce the Health Officer’s orders, but that the
    Sheriff he is not required to do so: “The sheriff of each county … may enforce within the
    county all orders of the local health officer issued for the purpose of preventing the spread of
    any contagious, infectious, or communicable disease.” H&S Code 101029. Should any
    Board member have further questions on the difference between “may” and “must,” I would
    be happy to hold a briefing on the California law in this area: my very first case as an
    attorney in the early ‘90’s was on behalf of the St. Louis Rams regarding the sole issue of
    whether the term “may” had a mandatory or permissive meaning, which case was litigated
    through the highest courts in this state (not surprisingly, “may” is permissive in construction,
    and not a mandate to the person to whom it is directed).
    Finally, on the point of Health & Safety Code sections which impact your decisions this week,
    I would note that under a different section, no funds “shall be allocated to any local health
    department whose professional personnel or organization do NOT meet the minimum
    standards.” Health & Safety Code 101260. For reasons I will go over with you in detail
    tomorrow, I believe the County’s due diligence prior to the hiring of the health officer fell
    drastically short of the mark professionally. While your retention of this health officer may
    have been due to such omissions, any continued retention by the Board of Supervisors after

    2

    tomorrow will be grounds to pull funding from the Health department given the catastrophic
    failure to ensure that her hiring and decision-making is qualified, and further, does not depart
    below minimum standards.
    Turning now to the context underlying the current events: On March 4, 2020, Governor
    Newsom declared a state of emergency in California, and on March 19, 2020, issued a Stay at
    Home order (“SAH order”) which he initially intimated would run a series of weeks, and
    which originally had an end date in mid-April, but was subsequently adjusted to reflect no
    definite termination date. The order was issued pursuant to Government Code Sections 8567,
    8627, 8665, and was predicated on modeling which predicted great loss of life absent the
    quarantine of healthy people. All of the municipalities in the state immediately complied, as
    did the vast majority of the more than 40 million Americans who choose to make their home
    in California.
    Fortunately, the loss of life predicted did not come to pass. Indeed, not only did California
    not experience a pandemic or even an epidemic, to date its mortality rate has not even
    approached the normal loss of life seen in our state during a typical flu season. To wit: two
    years ago, in 2017-18, just under 7,000 Californians died from the flu, and as of now, only
    half that number of Californians have died from COVID. Specifically, in our county, we’ve
    had 88 deaths from COVID – whereas two years ago we had nearly 600 deaths from the flu.
    In short, this is NOT an epidemic, and under Government Code 8629, Newsom should have
    already terminated his Declaration of Emergency “at the earliest possible moment” and is
    acting outside his lawful limits by not having done so. Moreover, the Constitutional right to
    travel and speak – without infringement and without being muzzled by a mask – is well
    settled law: to infringe on First Amendment rights, the governmental entity must have a
    “compelling governmental interest” it is asserting, and the proposed solution it puts forth must
    be “narrowly tailored” to achieving that end. As there is no epidemic in California based on
    the math, the State has no ability to infringe on First Amendment rights – nor does a local
    municipality like Orange County. Further, even if our local government could make the case
    that it had a compelling interest in controlling the spread of a non-existent epidemic, the
    proposed solution of mandatory mask-wearing while outside of our homes must be shown to
    be narrowly tailored to achieving that end – which simply cannot be shown based on the
    available scientific literature discussed below.
    Indeed, and as reviewed in thorough detail below, the only conclusion to be had from the
    available medical literature is that the Health Officer’s mask-wearing recommendation will
    not only be entirely ineffective in preventing viral spread, it will actually increase the spread
    of the disease based on available medical studies, and further, will put the wearers of such
    masks at grave risk of suffering severe if not fatal consequences.

    MASKS DO NOT PREVENT SPREAD OF THE VIRUS

    In a recent study from 2020, which itself was a review of other randomized controlled trials,
    the researchers found masks simply do not work:
    Masks and respirators do not work. There have been extensive randomized controlled
    trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis review 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 aerosol particles. 1
    Similarly another 2020 study showed:
    Surgical masks are unlikely to effectively filter this [COVID] virus. 2
    Yet worse, cloth masks can actually INCREASE infection and transmission: a British
    Medical Journal study from 2015 found healthcare workers caught viruses from their patients
    13 times more often if they wore a cloth mask than when they wore a medical mask. 3 And a
    Chinese study found similarly that a medical mask was no more protective against viruses
    than wearing no mask at all. 4
    Even the N95 respirator, recommended for medical workers, requires training to use properly
    and “without training, the masks could not only expose workers to the virus but also lull them
    into thinking they are protected,” according to doctors at the Harvard School of Public Health.
    Yet worse, in practice, the N95 mask has been found to be ineffective in preventing the
    transmission of viruses: a review of six clinical studies, published in the Canadian Medical
    Association Journal, found that medical workers caught viruses from their patients just as
    often when they used N95 respirators as when they used ordinary medical masks.
    As for the scientific support for the use of face mask, a recent careful examination of the
    literature, in which 17 of the best studies were analyzed, concluded:
    None of the 17 studies established a conclusive relationship between
    mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection. 5

    MASKS CREATE DANGEROUSLY LOW LEVELS OF OXYGEN –
    WHICH CAN LEAD TO UNCONSCIOUSNESS, CARDIAC EVENTS & STROKES –

    AND INCREASE THE RISK OF CONTRACTING THE VIRUS
    Masks are harmful to the wearer. COVID-19 kills by causing severe hypoxia (low levels of
    oxygen in the blood). Ironically, mask-wearing also causes low levels of oxygen and hypoxia
    – because people wearing masks re-breathe some of their exhaled air, lowering the amount of
    oxygen they are breathing, and putting them at greater risk for the disease should they
    contract it:
    Wearing respirators come[s] with a host of physiological and psychological burdens.
    These can interfere with task performances and reduce work efficiency. These burdens
    can even be severe enough to cause life-threatening conditions if not ameliorated. 6
    Indeed, when the N95 respirator was tested in use in 2010, the “dead-space oxygen and
    carbon dioxide levels did not meet the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s
    ambient workplace standards.”
    In a study conducted by the National Taiwan University Hospital fifteen years ago – which
    date of conclusion means we can safely ignore the idea that the study was trying to bias public
    opinion against mask wearing for the COVID 2020 crisis since it concluded a decade and a
    half prior to the COVID situation – it was found that the use of N-95 masks in healthcare
    workers caused them to experience hypoxemia, a low level of oxygen in the blood, and
    hypercapnia, an elevation in the blood's carbon dioxide levels. 7 Not only did the mask create
    dangerously low levels of oxygen and an equally dangerous spike in carbon dioxide in the
    human body, the study found:
    Medical staff are at increased risk of getting 'Severe acute respiratory syndrome'
    (SARS) [from] wearing N95 masks….
    Lastly, the study’s authors further found that “dizziness, headache, and short[ness] of breath

    “required use of abortive analgesics because of headache.” 8

    levels of oxygenation – and ALL healthcare workers felt like the headaches affected their
    work performance. 9 Pregnant women wearing N-95 masks were found to have breathing
    difficulties associated with the use of the mask. 10
    According to a noted neurosurgeon:
    “It is known that the N95 mask, if worn for hours, can reduce blood oxygenation as
    much as 20%” which in turn "can lead to a loss of consciousness, as happened to the
    hapless fellow driving around alone in his car wearing an N95 mask, causing him to
    pass out, and to crash his car and sustain injuries. I am sure that we have several cases
    of elderly individuals or any person with poor lung function passing out, hitting their
    head. This, of course, can lead to death.” 11
    While all studies reviewed show that the N95 mask can cause significant hypoxia (too little
    oxygen) and hypercapnia (dangerous amounts of carbon dioxide), another study – not of N95
    masks – but of simple surgical masks found significant reductions in blood oxygen as well. In
    this study, researchers examined the blood oxygen levels in 53 surgeons. They measured
    blood oxygenation before surgery as well as at the end of surgeries. The researchers found
    that the mask reduced the blood oxygen levels significantly. The longer the duration of
    wearing the mask, the greater the fall in blood oxygen levels. 12
    Yet worse, the immunity of the mask wearer – and his or her subsequent ability to fight off
    COVID-19 or any other harmful infection – is actually harmed by wearing a mask. To wit:
    the drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) noted in the myriad studies above is directly associated
    with an impairment in immunity. In terms of the biological effects, what the studies have
    shown is that the lowered rate of oxygen (hypoxia) in turn inhibits the production of the type
    of primary immune cells that our bodies use to fight viral infections (known as the CD4+ T-
    lymphocyte). Functionally speaking, what happens inside our bodies is that the decrease in
    oxygen causes a spike in the level of a compound called hypoxia-inducible-factor-1 (HIF-1).
    Once that compound spikes, it in turn inhibits the production of T-lymphocytes we need for
    our bodies to fight off invaders and infections. Yet worse, the lack of oxygen stimulates a
    powerful inhibitor of the immune system (a cell called the Tregs), which in turn makes one’s
    body ripe for contracting a COVID-19 infection and experiencing said illness more severely:
    This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19, and
    making the consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask
    may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much
    worse outcome. 13

    Moreover, people with cancer, especially if the cancer has spread, will be at a further risk
    from hypoxia – as cancer cells grow best in a bodily environment that is low in oxygen. Low
    oxygen also promotes systemic inflammation which, in turn, promotes “the growth, invasion
    and spread of cancers.” 14
    Repeated episodes of low oxygen – known as intermittent hypoxia – also “causes
    atherosclerosis” and hence increases “all cardiovascular events” such as heart attacks – as
    well as adverse cerebral events like stroke. 15
    Perhaps even worse than all of the foregoing is the fact that recent findings show that, in some
    cases, the virus can enter the brain. 16 According to those who practice neurosurgery, in most
    instances where the virus enters the brain, it does so by way of the olfactory nerves (smell
    nerves) – and accordingly – by wearing a mask “the exhaled viruses will not be able to
    escape, and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into
    the brain.’’ 17
    Simply put: wearing a mask actually increases your susceptibility to infection – particularly
    an infection that targets the lungs – and puts you on track for much worse outcomes should
    the re-breathing of the viral load cause the virus to invade the brain through the olfactory
    pathways.
    The fact that mask wearing presents a severe risk of harm to the wearer should – standing
    alone – mandate in favor of not ordering American citizens to wear them, particularly given
    that these citizens are not ill and have done nothing wrong that would warrant an infringement
    of their constitutional rights and bodily autonomy. A conclusion that is underscored by recent
    studies from the the CDC and the World Health Organization that prove mask-wearing is
    completely ineffective in controlling the spread of the virus:
    To wit, and quite strikingly, the CDC just last week on its website published a review of all
    studies – worldwide – that looked at the efficacy of face-mask wearing as a preventive
    measure to control the spread of highly infectious respiratory illnesses such as COVID. The
    CDC’s methodology involved searching four different databases – Medline, PubMed,

    regarding mask-wearing, from every single country in the world.

    8

    After reviewing ALL of the studies worldwide, the CDC found “no reduction in viral
    transmission with the use of face masks.” 18
    Similarly, in recent weeks, the World Health Organization also has found that there “is no
    evidence wearing a mask by a healthy person in a community setting can prevent infection
    with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.” And thus, the World Health Organization
    concluded “universal community masking” is ineffective at preventing “infection from
    respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.” 19 Indeed, the WHO went so far as to
    recommend against wearing medical masks as they “may create a false sense of security”
    against COVID-19, while it took pains to reiterate that there is “no evidence available on a
    [mask’s] usefulness to protect non-sick persons.” Id.
    CONCLUSION

    Given that the CDC and the World Health Organization have concluded this month that mask-
    wearing is completely ineffective at preventing the spread of viral infections including
    COVID-19, and further given the absolute wealth of medical studies concluding that mask-
    wearing creates dangerously low levels of oxygen combined with high rates of carbon dioxide
    which can, in turn, lead to headache and loss of consciousness as well as precipitate
    respiratory and cardiac events which can prove fatal – and indeed, in recent weeks, have led
    to drivers losing consciousness and T-boning trees and two children suffering fatal heart
    attacks while trying to exercise while mask-wearing in China – the suggestion by the County
    Health Officer that all county residents wear masks while outside their homes will not only
    fail abysmally in achieving any purported health goal, it will further serve to put millions of
    Orange County residents at risk of severe injury and/or death. 20 To put a very fine point on
    it: the recent order/suggestion – which flew in the face of the available scientific literature –
    puts directly into harm’s way the 40% of our county residents who have chronic, underlying
    health conditions. More than most, this half of the population needs its normal oxygen intake
    just to survive: the Health Officer’s order is nothing less than the placement of their hand in
    front of their compromised airways … while she waits for the all-too-certain negative medical
    emergency to transpire.
    The Board of Supervisors has a duty to the individuals who elected it to immediately cancel
    this proposal so as to not jeopardize the physical safety of its residents, as well as report its
    Health Officers for acts constituting moral turpitude to the State Medical Board. Further, an
    immediate investigation should be commenced into this issue, as well as the Health Officer’s
    credentials or lack thereof, and the officer should be concomitantly placed on administrative
    leave pending conclusion of that investigation. In sum, we are living in California in the

    summer of 2020, not Nazi Germany, and neither modern law nor morality will long
    countenance a “health officer” seeking to become the modern-day equivalent of Josef
    Mengele to Nazi Germany’s Hitler – through dangerous and unsupported medical suggestions
    that put millions of county residents at risk of harm and death. Lastly, should the Health
    Officer’s actions be the proximate cause of any injury or loss of life prior to the canceling of
    the mandatory mask order from last week, I will seek an immediate investigation into each
    addressee hereto – regarding how and why the Board of Supervisors did not take immediate
    action to remedy the problem once it was on notice of same.
    Sincerely,

    This the result of the Attorney Leigh Dundas in Commie California:

    Leigh Dundas angrily wagged her finger at Orange County supervisors at their board meeting last month as she ticked off what she thought were damning details about the professional background of county health officer Nichole Quick. The anti-vaccination attorney named Quick’s boyfriend and disclosed her home address, saying she was going to bring protesters in masks to do calisthenics on her front doorstep until they passed out.

    “She needs to be fired,” Dundas declared.

    It was a strikingly personal attack on Quick, who had vexed many local officials and residents alike with her recent order requiring that people wear masks when in public to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. The county sheriff provided her with a security detail even as he said he would not enforce the mask order. Finally, under pressure from both county supervisors and the public, Quick resigned last week, the third high-level Orange County health official to do so during the pandemic. And Orange County reversed her mask order.
