Take Action! Show Your Smile Everywhere You Go!
Despite mandates on facial coverings, viral testing, and soon, vaccines, there is only one person who owns the rights to your body and that is YOU! As more of us make the choice to be seen in public mask-free, we can unfortunately expect to be met with a stronger response from businesses, corporations and, potentially, law enforcement. We encourage each of you to stand your ground and do not be intimidated! Many stores are implementing policies that violate our basic Constitutional rights, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), HIPAA laws, OSHA Guidelines, AND the Executive Orders (which are NOT laws) themselves. So what do the Executive Orders actually say? The KY governor’s Executive Order on facial coverings (a copy can be HERE), which we advise you to carry with you, clearly states the following:
“While inside, or waiting in line to enter, a: retail establishment; grocery store; pharmacy; hair salon/barber shop; nail salon/spa; tattoo parlor; child care facility; restaurant or bar (when not seating and consuming food or beverage); healthcare setting, or; any other indoor public space in which it is difficult to maintain a physical distance of six feet from all individuals who are not members of that person’s household.”
This is followed by an entire section of exemptions, Section 4a, which includes “any person with a disability, or a physical or mental impairment, that prevents them from safely wearing a face covering.” Note here that you cannot see a mental impairment. Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), customers are not required to disclose medical information to access services. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides that organizations and businesses can be fined up to $75,000 for the first violation of the ADA and up to $150,000 for any subsequent violation. These are federal laws. Mandates are not laws, they are recommendations and they do not apply to all people. Store implementing mandatory mask polices not only violate federal law but they also violate the Executive Order in reference. Print your copy and feel FREE to use the following steps as a guide when shopping mask-free:
When you are shopping mask-free, here are some helpful hints if you are approached by staff:
- Remain calm and respectful, this is very important, and sometimes very difficult
- State that you are exempt for health reasons, medical exemption, etc., smile, and keep walking (if this doesn’t work, continue)
- Get out your Executive Order on facial coverings and point out the sections above (no luck, continue)
- Ask for a manager and repeat Steps 1 – 3. You may want to include the following:
- The store policy is discriminatory, just like denying services for race, religion, etc. It violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), HIPAA, OSHA guidelines, and our US Constitution.
- Mandates are not laws, they are recommendations and do not apply to all people. Even if they were laws, stores have no authority to enforce laws.
- Community masking is an experimental medical intervention, one that you have not consented to, and has not been proven to be safe. Members of store management are not part of your medical team and are not permitted to practice medicine without a license.
- The mandates and state of emergency are based on fraudulent data, including early models of projected deaths proven to be wrong, faulty PCR testing, including healthy asymptomatic people counted as “cases” for the first time in history, and false information that our hospitals are overwhelmed, when in fact they have never been overwhelmed and are currently at a capacity consistent with prior years for winter months, with no excess deaths. There is no emergency. More info can be found on this topic HERE.
- If all steps fail, you may want to pull out your phone, begin recording and state, “I would like to confirm that, despite the Civil Rights Act, the ADA, HIPAA laws, OSHA guidelines, and sections of the Executive Order that outline exemptions, you are refusing equal access to goods and services to me in your store today.” Record response.
- If after all this, you are denied access to goods & services, feel free to take the time to file a complaint and send the store a letter. We have included an example template HERE (link Cease & Desist Template) which can be modified as you see fit. There are also 2 additional attachments you may want to include with your business letter. Please share your experiences with the group so we can make our own informed choices about where to shop and which businesses to support. Email us Here.

Why Take Action? Learn More About The Ripple Effects of Lockdowns & Mandates
Lockdown Resistance – Lockdowns are a nuclear bomb for public health. They rob people of their wellbeing and quality of life; in other words, their health. Without adequate freedom, wellbeing, and opportunities for the fulfillment of personality, there is limited value in having a long life. Radical social distancing measures, whether imposed or voluntary, take years off the life expectancy of every person affected. Coronavirus shortens the lives of approximately 0.15% of infected individuals, each by about 5 years — not even enough to affect a country’s overall life expectancy, no matter how many people get infected.
