🧵 Healthcare workers & public health professionals have born the brunt of the #COVID19 pandemic for 18 months. We also have clear expertise & personal experience in reducing transmission. And in #Arizona we are shouting from the rooftops for additional mitigation in schools. 1/
1,067 physicians, healthcare workers, & public health professionals in #MaricopaCounty sent a letter to @maricopacounty Board of Supervisors last night, imploring them to adopt a resolution requiring universal masking in K-12 schools in the county. B/c schools are in crisis. 2/
What does 1,067 HCWs advocating together look like? It looks like 28 pages of signatures, plus 8 more pages of individual comments & pleas from the heart, in addition to all of the evidence-based expert recommendations and research outlining the efficacy & safety of masks. 3/

“There’s only two things that matter, the 3 November movement, what happened on the third of November, and then what happened in the Wuhan lab.

You get to the bottom of those two, everything else takes care of itself.” #SteveBannon (full text follows)

As promised:

"If you’ve been canceled by social media, dismissed by Fake News or written off by Paul Ryan, don’t worry — there is still a home for you.
Twice a day Monday through Friday, and again for two hours on Saturday, you are welcome to Steve Bannon’s “War Room” for entertainment, education and a crash course in taking back your country.

🚨Heidi Kim's 5 y.o. daughter has COVID just days into the new school year at EduPrize in San Tan Valley #Arizona. Her 8 y.o. daughter is sick too. Gov Doug Ducey banned mask mandates in schools despite CDC & AAP recommendations. abc15.com/news/coronavir…
“There are a total of three kids in her class who wear masks and my older daughter, there are two kids including her, so one other kid that wears a mask,” said Heidi.
“I could home school them again, I did this last year but I need to get back to work and I was just really hoping that people would do the right thing and send their kids in masks,” said Heidi.

Just spoke with @BarbaraArnwine, who was arrested along with @RevJJackson, @RevDrBarber, and 36 others attempting a peaceful protest to petition #KyrstenSinema’s support for the filibuster, which is stopping the passage of the #JohnLewisVotingRightsAct. gregpalast.com/jesse-jackson-…
I’d like to ask @SenatorSinema why her Senate office is not in a federal building but in a private building where trespass laws can be used against people trying to meet with her. @Sen_JoeManchin has pulled the same trick.
Years back I was in #Arizona reporting on the GOP Secretary of State removing more than 100,000 Hispanics from the voter rolls. It was only through the efforts of @RevJJackson, @BarbaraArnwine and our friends at @SuVotoEsSuVoz that thousands of those removed were re-registered.

The surgeon general shouldn’t be leading an effort to defend against a foreign influence campaign— and that’s what we’re dealing with. Not only is he not qualified, even a modicum of *sustainable* progress will require NSA and/or CIA resources

Let’s all hit pause, and reevaluate
This isn’t a pack of cigarettes— you can’t slap an surgeon general’s advisory label on a (primarily) Russian misinformation campaign.

The surgeon general’s report is a naïve take on a complex issue; his advisory & proposal read like a hammer looking for a nail
There is public evidence that directly links online anti-vax propaganda *and* the broader topic of COVID-19 misinformation to Russian (and also Chinese) government foreign influence campaigns 👀⤵️

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky: "This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated." #GetVaccinated
However, the pandemic of the unvaccinated is affecting the vaccinated b/c vaccine breakthrough requiring hospitalization is occurring in fully vaccinated people near the age of 65. For this reason states such as Mississippi are recommending this group avoid all indoor gatherings.
There are going to be a lot of disruptions in children's education AGAIN if public health measures such as masking are not implemented nationwide. Exposures in classrooms will require all unvaccinated children to quarantine for 10 days.
