In response, HFDF issued the following statement:

“DoJ’s statement [that it would appeal] is perplexing to say the least and sounds like it comes from health policy advocates, not government lawyers. The ruling by the U.S. District Court ruling is a matter of law, not CDC preference or an assessment of ‘current health conditions.’

“If there is in fact a public health emergency with clear and irrefutable science supporting CDC’s mask mandate, does it not warrant urgent action? Why would DoJ and CDC not immediately appeal?

“HFDF is left with no option but to conclude that the Mask Mandate is really a political matter and not at all about urgent public health issues or the demands of sound science. While DoJ and CDC play politics with Americans’ health and freedoms, HFDF trusts individual Americans to make their own health decisions.

“HFDF is confident that Americans possess ample common sense and education to understand that there are real questions about mask efficacy and risk and that CDC’s policy reflects neither.”
