An AFLDS Issue Brief for Citizens and Policymakers

Field Guide for Navigating School and Employer Mandates 


Summer is coming to an end.  Schools have either headed back into session or will be very soon.  We are in utter disbelief that despite the recent changes at the CDC, the proven absolute failure of the inoculation program, and the overwhelming data on the harms of masks, there are schools that are still mandating masks for those who are unvaccinated and requiring experimental medical interventions in violation of the Nuremberg Code, the United States Constitution, and the CDC’s revised guidelines.  No, this is not Orwell’s 1984.  Though it seems surreal, we are living in the United States in 2022. 

Medical Freedom has made some positive strides in the past year. However, there are still schools and employers pushing vaccine mandates and making it “policy” to discriminate against those who are allowed exemptions for religious or medical reasons.  College students are still being asked to vaccinate (or “boost”) before coming on campus. In some districts, school children are still being masked.  Employers are still demanding vaccines and requiring boosters to consider a person “fully vaccinated.”  Healthcare workers are facing termination for refusing boosters.  Here at AFLDS, we endeavor to empower you to create positive change and keep up the fight with scientific knowledge.  If you haven’t decided you are “too cool for school” and want to keep attending, then you must continue to submit exemption requests.  Use the scientific evidence gained in the past year and use the new CDC guidelines to your advantage this time. Download and personalize this letter if you face any discrimination due to your shot status.  

We at AFLDS are here to equip you with the knowledge, science, and support you need to continue fighting for your bodily autonomy within your state and town. Unfortunately, much of what is happening does not have a simple fix, there is no one single lawsuit that will stop the tyranny we are facing. The fight starts at home.  We must continue to bring scientific support of our position to school boards and employers and educate them on the TRUTH of this pandemic and the lies and propaganda of corporate media. 

On November 30, 2021, Dr. Paul Elias Alexander published More than 400 Studies on the Failure of Compulsory Covid Interventions (Lockdowns, Restrictions, Closures). Dr. Alexander’s comprehensive research analysis indicates that mask mandates, lockdowns, and school closures have had no impact on the pandemic trajectory.  A wealth of information is available within Dr. Alexander’s body of research. 

The term Cognitive Dissonance is used to describe the perception of contradictory information.  In the past year, many people have awakened to what is happening. I know it seems unfathomable, but many have not.  Those who have not may very likely be in cognitive dissonance. For many months, they have been subjected to fear messages from mainstream media and the government. Even those of us who know what is happening are finding these times to be incredibly challenging.  Imagine what it must be like to be fully vested in the narrative for over two and a half years. Extending kindness and understanding to those who are in this position will go a long way toward bringing about unity in our country again.   

Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong.  When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted.  It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable called cognitive dissonance.  And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief.

CDC’s New Guidelines

The new CDC guidelines support our long-held position that you should not be treated any differently than the “fully vaccinated.” On August 11, 2022, for the first time since the beginning of the Covid-19 “pandemic”, the CDC publicly announced what we have long known to be true. Natural immunity exists, vaccine-induced immunity wanes, and there should be no segregation between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. Here are some of the key highlights from the new CDC guidance. 

  • Guidelines do not change based on vaccination status.
  • People who have been fever free for 24 hours may end isolation on day 5 if they also test negative.
  • Screening of the asymptomatic (regardless of vaccination status) with no known exposure is no longer recommended. 

You can read the full CDC announcement here.  As many of you are aware, the unvaccinated have long been treated as the black sheep. Thousands have been fired and denied employment for refusing the Covid injections. Families have been divided and un-injected family members have been shunned. The un-injected have been barred from concerts, sporting activities, medical treatments (such as transplants), and other activities.  For nearly two years, we have had the CDC guidelines shoved in our faces.  Now it’s our turn to arm ourselves with the new CDC Guidelines. This recent action of the CDC motivated by new incoming data underscores the intrusiveness and pointlessness of any “vaccine mandate”. 

The “Vax” Facts

First, let’s recap facts about the shots that are still being mandated. The Covid-19 injections being mandated:

1.        Do not prevent infection or transmission of the virus

2.        Are now correlated with increased incidence of COVID-19 illness in the vaccinated

3.        Have lost effectiveness at preventing hospitalization and/or death

4.        Have been shown to cause pericarditis/myocarditis, especially in young males

5.         Has resulted in more reports to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) than all other vaccines in history combined

Why are these shots still being pushed?  On July 272022, a Federal Judge stepped in and affirmed that religious exemptions are a constitutional right and blocked a vaccine mandate for service members of the Air Force, Space Force, and the Air National Guard. Watch Dr. Peterson Pierre’s Frontline Flash on the victory for our military.  

NovaVax and Vaccine Exemptions

We have been contacted by some citizens recently whose employers are attempting to pull their exemptions due to the availability of the NovaVax vaccine. These employers claim that this vaccine has zero ties to aborted fetal cells and is therefore non-objectionable on any religious grounds. An important point to remember, if you find yourself in this situation, is that choosing not to accept a medical procedure is typically a multi-faceted decision. While fetal cell lines are very objectionable to many, so is the idea of accepting any medical treatment that you do not want, whatever that reason is. It is well within your right to refuse a procedure on religious grounds for the very reason alone that you do not want it, you have prayed about it and have determined it is not something you want to be injected with.  Please reevaluate your exemption requests if necessary (we have helpful information and templates on our website) but do not give in to the pressure of your school or employer based on their new “selling points”. 

Data from VAERS show 30,650 reported deaths and over 1 million reports of injury since the release of the injections.  If you are interested in bringing these statistics up when writing to an employer or school about their mandate policies, you can find current data on the VAERS website

The Mask Facts

Mask mandates are a thing of the past in many states. However, incomprehensibly, there are still some states where schools, business establishments, places of employment, and courts are requiring masks.  This year, we have a vast amount of information and artillery to strike down mandates in any of these environments. Arm yourself with this information and don’t allow yourself or your children to submit to the ritual of masking. 

Our Dr. Peterson Pierre has done four segments of Frontline Flash on the topic of masks. If you aren’t familiar with Dr. Pierre’s videos, they are two minutes long and contain powerful blasts of information.  Watch these:

            The Mask is a Dangerous Lie

            Mask Mandates Led to More Deaths

            Masks Don’t Work

            Real Science on Mask Mandates 


On August 27, 2022, our own Dr. Christina Parks gave a talk on the harms of masks at America’s Frontline Industrial Hygienists and Multidisciplinary Support Summit.  Her speech is on the AFLDS website. You can also watch the entire summit, with hours of information in three segments:

            Part 1 -  America's Frontline Industrial Hygienists & Multidisciplinary Support Summit

            Part 2 -  America's Frontline Industrial Hygienists & Multidisciplinary Support Summit

            Part 3 -  America's Frontline Industrial Hygienists & Multidisciplinary Support Summit

Additionally, the team from the above summit compiled a Meta-Analysis of Universal Public Masking and Associated Risks. 

On May 25, 2022, The Lancet released a preprint article Revisiting Pediatric COVID-19 Cases in Counties With and Without School Mask Requirements—United States, July 1—October 20 2021 that debunks the CDC study upon which school mask mandates were implemented. Another preprint study posted July 1, 2022, at Research Square, Association between School Mask Mandates and SARS-CoV-2 Student Infections: Evidence from a Natural Experiment of Neighboring K-12 Districts in North Dakota proved what we have been arguing from the beginning, mask mandates did nothing to stop the spread of Covid-19.  Masks get a grade of F- in the risk versus benefit analysis. 

AFLDS filed an Amicus Brief on August 8, 2022, in the Health Freedom Defense Fund v. Joseph R. Biden, Jr., et al matter.  The brief relates specifically to the transportation mask mandate, but provides legal argument and a wealth of citations and information that masks don’t work, are unsanitary, and cause harm.

AFLDS Website Resources

America’s Frontline Doctors have been hard at work updating resources on our website.  Please check the resources on the website often, as we are updating on a very regular basis.  We specifically direct you to the following web pages under the Legal tab of our website. Within these pages, you will find videos, templates, and other valuable tools for your freedom arsenal. 

The Scars of a Mask 

Dr. David Cartland is a UK doctor who has recently become part of the movement to educate the people of the world as to the medical and tyrannical truths of the past years. Dr. Cartland awakened after he had taken the injections.  He should be an inspiration to all doctors who know what is happening is wrong and are doing and saying nothing.  Be Like Dr. Cartland.

We will close with this poem, which Dr. Cartland recently released:


The power of a smile, The anguish of a frown,

To tell someone you’re feeling great, To signal when you’re down.

We smile when we are joyful, We frown when things get tough,

Our faces show the world our thoughts, Our grimace when we feel rough.


The barrier to this — the facial mask, The debate of whether it works,

To stop the spread of covid? No.

But yes to displays of joy and fear and mirth.


To see our children suffering, In an emotionless world of fears,

To see our children reaching out, A masked child’s scars bring tears.


We rely on the power of our faces, To tell the world we’re fine,

We rely on the power of expression, To show all the feelings of mine.


It’s time to lose the facial masks, For the good of humankind,

So we connect again as humans do, And display our souls and mind.


Let us see in years to come, When we hope we’ve won this race,

The needs and dreams of all the world, Freely etched upon our face.
