Dr. Jeff Barke says it’s ‘ridiculous’ to reinstate mask mandates

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Los Angeles County once again is requiring residents to wear masks indoors, regardless of their vaccination status.

The new mask mandate went into effect Monday. Health officials have said the mandate is due to a rise in COVID-19 cases.

Board certified primary care physician, Dr. Jeff Barke, has treated hundreds of COVID patients, and says the new mandate is “ridiculous.”

Barke said the mandate, “makes no sense scientifically or medically, it only makes sense if you look through the lens of a tyrannical ruler trying to rule through fear.”

Barke discussed his opposition to Los Angeles County’s mask mandate with KUSI’s Paul Rudy on Good Morning San Diego.
