Stephen Petty’s Expert Testimony: Masks Do Not Stop or Slow Viral Spread

Covid Watch

By NYCBC News

Stephen E. Petty is an actual expert on masks. He is a certified industrial hygienist, a certified safety professional, a professional engineer, a man who has worked 45 years in the field of health and safety, and who has spent his entire career working to protect workers and the public from toxins.

He’s been called to testify in over 400 cases with respect to exposure, exposure control, and personal protective equipment (PPE), and the mask mandate in Kentucky was recently overturned state-wide as a result of his testimony.

More recently, on March 30, 2022, Stephen Petty testified before the New Hampshire Senate Committee on Health and Human Services in defense of NH HB1131, which would “prohibit school boards and accredited nonpublic schools from adopting, enforcing, or implementing a policy that requires students or members of the public to wear a facial covering.”

What this man has to say about masks might just startle you, as his data and experience contradict just about everything we’ve been told by our government officials and their messengers in the mainstream media.

This should be REQUIRED VIEWING for anybody who might offer any opinion on the use of masks to contain viral spread. Please give up ten minutes of your time to inform yourself from someone who knows.

The following
potential harms and risks should be carefully
taken into account when adopting this approach of targeted
continuous medical mask use, including:

self-contamination due to the manipulation of the mask
by contaminated hands;(48, 49)

potential self-contamination that can occur if medical
masks are not changed when wet, soiled or damaged;

possible development of facial skin lesions, irritant
dermatitis or worsening acne, when used frequently for
long hours(43, 44, 50)

masks may be uncomfortable to wear;(41, 51)

false sense of security, leading to potentially less
adherence to well recognized preventive measures such
as physical distancing and hand hygiene;

risk of droplet transmission and of splashes to the eyes,
if mask wearing is not combined with eye protection;

disadvantages for or difficulty wearing them by specific
vulnerable populations such as those with mental health
disorders, developmental disabilities, the deaf and hard
of hearing community, and children;

difficulty wearing them in hot and humid environments.
