Washingtons invasive, coercive and unprecedented directive requiring residents to wear a mask or equivalent face covering in public places has been challenged by a lawsuit arguing the state cannot compel citizens to meekly support whatever newest guess the government is making when responding to the COVID-19 virus.
Filed in Lewis County Superior Court on Wednesday by the Freedom Foundation on behalf of seven state residents, the action targets the face coverings order issued on June 24 by Washington Secretary of Health Dr. John Wiesman.

This is a VERY local matter.
Locally, individually, masks and other precautions may indeed be wise.
Statewide or nationwide , of course, they’re nuts.
Mayor Garcetti actually stood up at a news conference today and locked down ALL beaches and parks, THEN in the same breath welcomed the protesters into the streets over this Independence Day weekend!! This is absolute BULLSHIT!! I am telling you they are PISSING OFF regular working Americans they ALWAYS just push the envelope to far!! I predict winning ALL of our pubbie seats back that were stolen in 2018!,These Dems just always overplay their hand ALWAYS!!
It’s academia, and wealthy, leftist corporations and politicians who are the most smitten with face-masks.
Gee, I wonder why ?
A big FU to governor Dimslee!
“ THEN in the same breath welcomed the protesters into the streets over this Independence Day weekend!”
What a nut!
I expect a big media “BLM” exposition this weekend. I don’t think people will like that.
I, for one, hope it works.
“I could not agree !more. !!! $cr3w masks!!! f@#k masks !!!!masks of idiocy !!! Masks of submission to communists do not wear them !!!!!
do not allow anyone to tell you to wear them !!!!!!
if you live in a jurisdiction where you got to wear one - Like to get into a store - just tie a bandanna around your neck
and let some KAREN try to tell you to pull it up ! and you just give her a glaring look. Like. You idiot loser !”
Facemasks always remind me of the loss of our freedoms, specifically the freedom of speech.
Of course, now that Trump has come out in favor of masks...although he did say that he didnt want a national order - this is going to be harder. Very disappointed.
well I have asthma and cannot wear a mask so if I ma refused to a store then correct me if I am wrong but are they not breaking the law and discriminating under the ADA?
