The Sara Cody deposition transcripts
Sara Cody is the public health officer for Santa Clara County. She doesn't know the size of SARS-CoV-2 particle. She believes masks work because she misinterpreted the Bangladesh mask study.
Santa Clara County wants Calvary Chapel to pay $3M to the County because the church didn’t require masks like Sara Cody ordered.
The lawsuit was the first opportunity to question a public health official and actually force them to answer the questions.
We finally learn in the deposition that Sara Cody’s mask mandate was based on the Bangladesh mask study. However, it is obvious to any thinking person that the study actually proved that the “benefit” of wearing a mask was too tiny to measure (i.e., zero).
Furthermore, when Science was formally asked to retract the study, they refused to acknowledge the request showing the journals are compromised as well. However, it is clear from the data collected in the study that masks do nothing.
Santa Clara County should never have required anyone to adopt a completely useless masking policy.
However, that won’t stop the lawsuit. They have their pride at stake. They want to show businesses that they can make ridiculous demands of people for no benefit, and then extract millions of dollars for non-compliance with nonsensical health directives.
They should be ashamed of themselves.
Here are the depositions
Mariah Gondeiro, Esq. CA Bar No. 323683 deposed Sara Cody. Here are the depositions and key parts are highlighted in yellow. Happy reading.
You can find the Bangladesh study on page 73 of Part 1 and also she admits that she believed the study showed masks worked.
The problem: that study showed no such thing.
Now that we know this, she will be skewered in court over this.
Basically, the County Health Officer completely misinterprets a study showing masks don’t work as the basis for her County-wide mandate. And then they go after the Church for $3M for non-compliance of a ridiculous mandate.
Here is the graph for purple clot masks vs. controls. See any difference? There isn’t one. If masks worked, there would be a difference.

The Epoch Times article
It’s excellent showing Santa Clara County is an outlier with a $3M fine against a church for doing something that put no one in harms way.
Why is Santa Clara County pursuing a lawsuit against a Church for violating a health order that is based on a scientific study which actually proved that masks did not make any measurable difference whatsoever. That’s what I’d like to know.
Just because Sara Cody thinks masks work is not a good basis for public policy. She should apologize to the public for her error. If she doesn’t, she should be fired.
This whole situation could have been avoided if public officials were forced to attend an open forum where they can be challenged by qualified experts who disagree with the officials. Does that exist anywhere? How would that result in worse outcomes?
