A recent Cochrane meta-review of randomized controlled trials has suggested that face masks may provide little to no real-world benefit against respiratory viruses. However, federal regulators and the US medical establishment remain committed to implementing widespread mask mandates.

Despite the lack of evidence supporting the efficacy of masks, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is currently considering a permanent mask mandate in healthcare settings. The agency submitted a final rule to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in December, and it is currently under review.

This decision by OSHA is causing concern among many Americans. Are the government and medical establishment more interested in appearances than actual science? Is this an attempt to exert more control over the population?

As this issue continues to be debated, it is important for Americans to stay informed and demand transparency from those in power. We will continue to follow this story and bring you the latest updates as they become available.
