An anti-mask group on Facebook called the Freedom To Breath Agency are promoting laminated mask-exempt cards, one of the latest in a long list of coronavirus scams.
The cards reference the DOJ and the Americans With Disabilities Act and with bold letters state across the top “Face Mask Exempt Card.”
“I am exempt from any ordinance requiring face mask usage in public. Wearing a face mask poses a mental and/or physical risk to me. Under the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), I am not required to disclose my condition to you,” the cards read.
The Freedom to Breathe Agency has stated that they are dedicated to stopping orders for mandatory masks “from spreading nationwide and globally.”
The Department of Justice issued a statement saying that the cards are not official in any capacity and that they will not help those looking to skirt standards used to thwart the spread of the coronavirus.
“These postings were not issued by the Department and are not endorsed by the Department. The Department urges the public not to rely on the information contained in these postings and to visit ADA.gov for ADA information issued by the Department.”
The Freedom to Breathe Agency’s Facebook page has stated that mask wearing is dangerous and limits oxygen, and the group’s founder Lenka Koloma said that people should only wear masks when they want to be silenced and muzzled. She could not say why their pages had been scrubbed from the web or why the DOJ’s logo appeared on the cards.
