Press Release: February 17th Lawsuit Update

December Last year 15 Ohio University Students and a Professor filed a lawsuit against Ohio University to end their illegal and discriminatory COVID mandates. You can learn about the original lawsuit filing here, it is recommended you read that first before this to get caught up. Since then OU has only seen more COVID policy failure and our case has only strengthened.

After filing, on January 5th, 2022 Ohio University delivered their first reply to our lawsuit, Ohio University filed a 22 page motion to dismiss the case. Ohio University makes this motion to fully protect their interest on the record, as at this point they would be stupid to admit they broke the law and not fight our lawsuit. The Full Filing is below.

In response 14 days later we filed our first Amended complaint for an injunction to stop COVID mandates at Ohio University. Their own motion to dismiss even proves them wrong.

So before we break down our new filings below we will break down these blatant false hoods in Ohio University’s motion to dismiss.

First Ohio University argues that another case from Miami University of Ohio that was “nearly identical” was dismissed because the plaintiffs lacked standing or applied for an exemption. This is an extremely weak argument firstly because anyone can look at our complaint and the Miami complaint and see they they are most definitely not “nearly identical”. The Miami lawsuit plaintiffs were employees of Miami University who filled an injunction against the Exemption requirements at Miami. Our complaint was from students and staff who filled an injunction to stop all illegal mandates at Ohio University, exemptions do not bear any effect on our complaints.

Ohio University’s Motion to Dismiss page 3

The idea that this Miami case was dismissed for lacking standing is also dishonest. The Miami lawsuit was dismissed because Miami dropped the exemption requirements in question, the lawsuit was no longer needed.

Next Ohio University Argues the student and staff plaintiffs are NOT ENTITLED TO DELARATORY OR INJUCTIVE RELIEF for 4 reasons. All 4 of the reasons they express are laughably poor arguments. First they argue we are not entitled to relief because Ohio Revised Code 2905.12 is a criminal statute

Ohio University’s Motion to Dismiss page 7

Ohio University argues private citizens can not sue people for coercion, they argue only the state has the right to prosecute coercion. OU’s lawyers cite out of context case law to justify this ridiculous claim. We are not seeking to maintain a civil action for damages (to reclaim money for harm) under R.C. 2721.03, in this lawsuit. We are seeking to vindicate our constitutional and statutory rights, therefore R.C. 2905.12 does apply.

https://codes.ohio.gov/ohio-revised-code/section-2721.03

Next Ohio University argues Ohio Revised Code 3709.212 does not apply to them because Ohio University is not a City or General Health District.

Ohio SB 22 became effective June 23rd. the act specifies that a local board of health may issue orders or regulations that apply only to specific individuals or businesses. Any order that applies to a class of persons in violation of this provision is invalid and has no legal effect. Specifically, the act provides that any order or regulation issued by a local board of health for the prevention or restriction of disease may only apply to individuals and businesses that:

(1) have been medically diagnosed with the disease that is the subject of the order or regulation,

(2) have come in direct contact with someone who has been medically diagnosed with the disease that is the subject of the order or regulation, or

(3) have a documented incident in the building of the disease that is the subject of the order or regulation

Ohio University’s Motion to Dismiss page 7

Ohio University’s lawyers admit R.C. 3709.212 applies to Board of health, cities, and general health districts. They then claim Ohio University is not a city or general health district, which is true. But they do not deny Ohio University is a board of health who makes public health orders, R.C. 3709.212 obviously does apply. Furthermore, if the Athens health department is bound by R.C 3709.212 and Ohio University base policy on the Athens Health Department’s policy surly R.C. 3709.212 applies.

https://codes.ohio.gov/ohio-revised-code/section-3709.212

Next Ohio University argues R.C. 3792.04 does not apply and repeats the most famous lie “The Pfizer vaccine has received full approval from the FDA”. This has been proven false time and time again. If we want to get technical the FDA has never even used the term “full approval”, you can check for yourself here. Products are either Approved or Authorized.

Ohio University’s Motion to Dismiss page 8

Amazingly, Ohio University’s Lawyers proved themselves wrong in their own Exhibit C of their motion to dismiss on Page 22. In the document provided by OU’s lawyers it CLEARLY STATES:

  1. COMIRNATY and The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine are LEGALLY DISTINCT
  2. They can be used interchangeably for purposes of administration (not purposes of mandates)
  3. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine is Emergency Use Authorized
Ohio University’s Motion to Dismiss page 22

Furthermore, the CDC even admits both FDA approved COVID vaccines (COMIRNATY and SPIKEVAX), are not orderable, are not available, and will not be available. Including Spikevax made by Moderna.

https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/iis/COVID-19-related-codes.html#codes

This mean’s all COVID vaccines administered and available at Ohio University are EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZED. Ohio R.C. 3792.04 could not be any clearer: A public school or state institution of higher education shall not require an individual to receive a vaccine for which the United States food and drug administration has not granted full approval.

https://codes.ohio.gov/ohio-revised-code/section-3792.04

Ohio University then goes onto interestingly say that even if Ohio R.C. 3792.04 applied which they still claim “it does not”, the directive “does not require” anyone to take a vaccine because exemptions are available.

Ohio University’s Motion to Dismiss page 8

As of today months after being served with the lawsuit would you say Ohio University’s vaccine mandate page reflects something that is “not required”? There is no guarantee anyone’s exemption would be approved and many were not. The only sure way to not be kicked out of Ohio University was to get an Emergency Use Authorized COVID vaccine.

https://www.ohio.edu/coronavirus/vaccine/vaccine-requirement

Ohio R.C. 3792.04 also clearly states: A public school or state institution of higher education shall not Discriminate against an individual who has not received an Emergency Use Authorized vaccine.

https://codes.ohio.gov/ohio-revised-code/section-3792.04

Ohio University also says Ohio R.C. 3792.04 does not apply because while they admit discriminating against the unvaccinated with a weekly testing program, they claim we do not allege we have been required to engage in such testing, this is obviously not true.

If tests are not required why did many OU students receive this text and a similar threatening email on 2/15/2022?

Again, Ohio University’s own website proves them wrong, it says asymptomatic testing is required for unvaccinated individuals, this is clear discrimination in violation of Ohio R.C. 3792.04. OU’s lawyers try to frame the testing pathway as a “program” “provided” to the unvaccinated. That is clearly ingenuine.

https://www.ohio.edu/coronavirus/vaccine/vaccine-requirement

Finally Ohio University makes their worst argument yet. Ohio University argues Ohioans do not have the constitutional right to medical choice. They claim the vaccine, testing, and mask requirements are not really requirements because you can apply for an exemption.

Well I applied for an exemption from testing. When you submit your request you receive a call from Ohio University asking you to explain why you want to be exempted. On the call they told me I could not receive an exemption from testing, so I requested that to be sent to me in writing via email.

I received the following email, Where George Anaya from Ohio University tells me I can avoid testing by taking an Emergency Use Authorized vaccine. If this isn’t obvious coercion I don’t know what is.

Below is the full email thread where I explained why I did not want to take asymptomatic tests, I was never granted an exemption.

Our Response

In response to Ohio University’s weak motion to dismiss on 01/19/2022 we filed our first 38 page amended complaint for injunctive and declaratory relief. The full filing is below.

This amended complaint goes in depth into the topics discussed previously in this press release.

In response to our Amended Complaint OU’s motion to dismiss from 1/05/2022 is moot so they had to submit a new motion to dismiss or another plead.

On 2/02/2022 Ohio University submitted their amended motion to dismiss.

The only real change Ohio University made in their motion to dismiss was adding Spikevax as another FDA approved COVID vaccine. As we have discussed time and time again, while Spikevax is FDA approved it is not available, only the EUA Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is.

Page 7 of The Letter of Authorization for The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine from the FDA literally even admits Spikevax and COMIRNATY are not available in the United States as of 1/31/22. COMIRNATY has been approved since August, why else would Pfizer continue to produce the EUA vaccine and still have no FDA approved COMIRNATY available unless it was for the liability protection?

https://www.fda.gov/media/144636/download Page 7 footnotes

The CDC admits both FDA approved COVID vaccines, are not orderable, are not available, and will not be available. Including Spikevax made by Moderna.

https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/iis/COVID-19-related-codes.html#codes

The lie Ohio University is spreading that you can get an FDA approved COVID-19 vaccine is dangerous, harmful, and unethical. Even local media like FOX NEWS has fallen victim to this misinformation. Just because the FDA approved a ghost vaccine that is not available anywhere in the United States, does not give Universities the right to break the law and mandate Emergency Use Authorized vaccines and discriminate against those who do not have an EUA vaccine.

https://fox8.com/news/16-people-sue-ohio-university-over-covid-rules/

In Response to Ohio University’s nearly identical and equally as weak motion to dismiss, 2 days after they filed, We filed a 44 page Brief in Opposition to the Amended Motion to dismiss. In our brief we completely explain in depth the falsehoods of OU’s motion. It is highly recommended you take the time to read this full brief, it is available below:

SEPERATE MOTION FOR PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION

After all of what we just previously discussed on 2/10/2022 we filed our strongest argument yet in a separate 108 page motion for preliminary injunction. A motion for preliminary injunction is a motion filed while a lawsuit is pending asking the court to prevent the other party from doing something or forcing the other party to maintain the status quo until the court actually decides the merits of the case. In this case this injunction would force Ohio University to cease the illegal mandates. That full filing is below, it is highly recommended you read through it if you have the time. we will break it down some since it is so large and contains new information.

First lets talk about the mask mandate, Ohio University argues the mask mandate is legal because masks are not medical devices and therefore your constitutional right to refuse medical treatment does not apply. However, according to the FDA masks are clearly a form of medical treatment that are only authorized for EMERGENCY USE.

Furthermore, The Ohio Constitution and Federal Law 21 United States Code 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(III) Gives Ohioians the right to refuse Emergency Use Authorized products. This includes all available COVID-19 vaccines, All Masks, and all COVID Tests.

Remember when Ohio Republicans Abortion Ban Law was blocked because A Hamilton County Judge said The Ohio Constitution “confirms that freedom of choice in health care is a fundamental right”. Do Ohio University’s actions not show they don’t believe Ohioans have a constitutional right to medical choice?

https://www.citybeat.com/news/hamilton-county-judge-blocks-enforcing-ohios-abortion-remains-disposal-law-12600854

To Override someone’s right to refuse medical treatment Ohio Courts have upheld that a Physician must prove there is immanent danger to the patient refusing treatment. To Strengthen our argument we included 3 Sworn Affidavits from experts proving we are NOT in immanent danger and even explaining the harms of Ohio University’s Mandates.

One of the Affidavits is of Dr. Peter McCullough. Dr. McCullough is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular diseases, and clinical lipidology.  He cares for advanced patients with common medical problems including heart and kidney disease, lipid disorders, and diabetes.  He has become an expert on COVID-19.

Dr. McCullough has broadly published on a range of topics in medicine with over 1,000 peer reviewed publications and over 600 citations just in the National Library of Medicine.

Since the outset of the pandemic, Dr. McCullough has been a leader in the medical response to the COVID-19 disaster and has published “Pathophysiological Basis and Rationale for Early Outpatient Treatment of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Infection” the first synthesis of sequenced multidrug treatment of ambulatory patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the American Journal of Medicine and subsequently updated in Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine.  He has over 35 peer-reviewed publications on the infection and has commented extensively on the medical response to the COVID-19 crisis.

Dr. McCullough is one of the leading experts on the COVID-19 crisis who is actually working in the field, unlike the CDC director who does not work in the field they work for the government. His Affidavit is below, we strongly encourage you to read it.

Since Our Brief and Motion for a Preliminary Injunction Ohio University has only replied with a reply brief on 2/11/2022 in support of the motion to dismiss the amended complaint. It is 7 pages, they repeat themselves a lot again but there are some new statements in this brief that are just laughable. The full brief is below:

Ohio University argues we do not allege a single instance of discrimination based on vaccination status. Anyone who has followed this lawsuit or goes to Ohio University knows this statement is completely false. Now even people who are not boosted get treated the same in regards to quarantine as the unvaccinated. Only boosted students do not have to quarantine on campus, if that is not blatant discrimination based on vaccination status, I’m not sure what is. There are ZERO FDA approved booster doses.

Ohio University also argues they are statutorily vested to enact these policies. The supreme court recently ruled EVEN THE PRESIDENT does not have this authority without congressional action. The State of Ohio never passed a law saying College’s can mandate EUA products, so they can’t. This is not complicated.

Ohio University goes onto argue that we have no merit. They somehow call our arguments a “hodge-podge” which ironically is a better description for their constantly changing and senseless COVID policies. Ohio University is seriously admitting now the federal government can not mandate COVID vaccines but they believe they, a government owned university, can. (Insert laughing emoji)

Ohio University also claims this case does not involve health orders of local health agencies. This email from Gillian Ice clearly says otherwise. There’s plenty of emails like this, OU officials have publicly stated they are working with local health agencies. Ohio’s on campus health services are literally operated by OhioHealth.

Finally Ohio University concludes by saying there is no traceable injury to their mandates. They go onto say that even if we do have standing from a traceable injury our claims should still be dismissed for the reasons they mentioned above. (Yes the same reasons we were easily able to prove false just in this post, I know it’s hard to believe but they can’t just admit they broke the law I guess). This is the third time Ohio University has requested our Complaint be dismissed with prejudice. Our case has NOT been dismissed as of writing this and we still await OU’s motion to dismiss our preliminary injunction, which will surely be just as easy to disprove.

It is clear to anyone following along with the case who has the much stronger argument. SPOILER ALERT: It is not Ohio University.

We fully expect to win our case and END COVID MANDATES at Ohio University, even if that means taking it to the Ohio Supreme court and beyond.

Ohio University’s argument is not only weak, it’s unethical. Ohio University is facing multiple lawsuit’s for multiple reasons, not just ours.

It has become clear to most who are paying attention Ohio University is not looking out for the good of students and staff, they are looking out for their pocket books.

Ohio University Ends Vaccine Mandate?

Beginning with Summer Semester 2022, Ohio University will no longer require COVID-19 vaccination for Ohio University employees and non-residential students.

Students in dorms will continue to be illegally required to receive an experimental Emergency Authorized Vaccine (EUA) that Ohio University knowingly misleads people to believe is a different FDA approved vaccine to attend school.

https://www.ohio.edu/news/2022/04/ohio-university-provides-update-vaccination-requirement

Also according to OU: “Some experiential learning program partners, including clinical placement sites and study abroad programs and destinations, have COVID-19 vaccination requirements that students, faculty, and staff must meet to participate. Nonclinical students with experiential learning placements in clinical settings must also comply with program partners’ COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Requirements may include documenting proof of vaccination or going through an exemption process. Not complying with program partners’ COVID-19 vaccination requirements could prevent individuals from fulfilling academic and professional objectives.

As for testing: “At this time, the University does not plan to conduct regular COVID-19 testing of students, faculty, or staff, during Summer Semester 2022 or during the 2022-23 academic year. However, students, faculty, and staff participating in certain experiential learning activities may be required to comply with testing requirements based on the program or site. Antigen tests will continue to be available for students, faculty, and staff on all campuses, and upon request for groups. A limited number of Vault Health at-home PCR tests are also available.”

Ohio University finishes this announcement with the standard cut and paste “COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective…”.

What now?

Residential students are going to be required to be vaccinated just for living on campus in dorms, while non-residential students and employees are not required to be vaccinated, despite the fact that all of these people will be using and sharing the same campus facilities. Whether you think the vaccine blocks 100% of COVID or if you think the vaccine kills 100% of people who take it, everyone can agree this policy makes no sense and is anti-science

Vaccine Required In Dorms?Vaccine Required In Class?Vaccine Required on Campus?
Residential Student
Non-Residential Student
Employees

If OU was really worried about the unvaccinated catching COVID in dorms than they would at least require employees who work in the dorms to be vaccinated. Obviously all students and staff share the same spaces anyways. (Maybe OU thinks only people who live in dorms can get COVID, that’d explain it right?)

So why is Ohio University discriminating against residential students and making them take an EUA vaccine? It’s about control, Ohio University and Gillian Ice have admitted they have more a better “ability to influence students” decisions when they are on campus.

OU knows they can bully on-campus students the easiest, which is why we saw even people who did follow protocol get locked out of their dorms in the winter. OU is not willing to fully give up this new form of control they have discovered. Left untreated this system of bullying students into submission will expand past a COVID vaccine. Once it’s students caught out on Court Street or at Fest’s being barred from their dorm because of attending dangerous “super spreader events” then everyone will agree the school’s control system has gone too far. Thankfully our lawsuit seeks to stop further abuses of power and human rights violations at Ohio University before we are too far down the slippery slope of government overreach.

Ohio University COVID Operations Has Been DEFUNDED!

This week Ohio University announced they will be “discontinuing” the COVID Operations Office (lead by Gillian Ice) at the end of this fiscal year on June 30th. 

https://www.ohio.edu/news/2022/04/covid-operations-office-transition?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=COVID%20ops&utm_campaign=oen_042522_UCM&fbclid=IwAR0HjuQctv8Wi_poXXl-zgkTFtXwtLY8vzvUQEBoFB54wtwQOYzYNWNN7I0

President Sherman thanked Gillian Ice and the COVID team.

Despite Gillian Ice and the COVID team being instrumental in the spread of anti-science COVID misinformation which undoubtedly harmed students education and more. You can read about this misinformation in some of our past posts:

Ohio University admits COVID operations was funded by federal tax dollars which are not available while “the need for a concerted response has dwindled”. Our active lawsuit will ensure COVID operations and mandates remain discontinued at Ohio University.

Public School Employees Groom Students To Coerce Them To Take an Emergency Use Authorized Drug

Warner Mendenhall gave an excellent speech at the Ohio Stands Up! event in Cincinnati this past weekend. In the video below Warner explains how schools are using commonly known grooming tactics to get students vaccinated and force them to follow unconstitutional and anti-science mandates.

In 2017, the Department of Education published a report warning that public school employees “groom” and then commit “adult sexual misconduct” (ASM) against 10% of all K-12 students.

The DOE defines “grooming” as the process of isolating and manipulating a child.

Now usually grooming is used by pedophiles to target children, but consider for a second that same type of isolation and manipulation is picked up and applied to grooming students to get them to take a vaccine or other acts they don’t really want to do instead of a sexual interaction. In this case, Instead of grooming students for ASM students are being groomed to take an Emergency Use Authorized drug.

According to the DOE one way grooming happens is through public employees providing gifts to students.

We saw this tactic used to encourage “Bobcats” to get vaxxed at Ohio University. Students who had chosen to not get vaccinated were offered “money and other incentives” if they got vaccinated before November 15th, 2021.

The DOE report further explains the groomer will test the adults surrounding the student or school. Groomers will see how parents react to true and false information. An example they provide is that a groomer may lead others to believe the parents have provided consent when they have not. This is where the groomer begins separating the student from their parents.

Through public records we have learned that every public school in Ohio received backlash for their illegal and anti-science COVID vaccine mandates from parents. In the email below Tammy Ewin the VP of Akron University shares with her colleagues a document of reactions to the mandate from parents and students. She admits students “seem pleased” and that parents and alumni are “less than pleased”.

The full email and attached document is available below.

There is some serious groomer behavior that can be found in just this document. One example of this is that they make note of unhappy parents creating a Facebook group. the colleges monitored multiple Facebook groups to see how parents were reacting to the true and false information they were sharing, just like groomers do according to the Department of Education. Akron U “thought this might happen”

Here are some examples of the comments they were collecting from parent Facebook groups:

In this document they also admit the older people are, the more likely they are to not agree with the school’s decision.

According to the DOE Grooming turns into exploitation when groomers begin aggressively defending their conduct. Groomers will indicate their actions are because they CARE MORE about the students than other adults or parents.

In our previous post we looked at some of Gillian Ice’s emails. In those emails we found Gillian was not allowed to use “some of the peer pressure” she was “hoping to use”. Other people at the school told Gillian some of the things she wanted to do could not be done because of the CDC’s guidance and laws against the actions they wanted to take. She even calls the CDC guidance “frustrating”. She had already began defending her actions at this point, she was already convinced she cared more about the students than the CDC or others at OU.

The DOE explains that groomers “will begin to assume a supportive family member role while isolating the student from his or her family“.

In another email Gillian said she has a “greater ability to influence students when they are on campus” away from their parents. She admits “parents have strong opposition [to the vaccine]. Students may feel differently but can’t act on it at home.” She admits its hard to reach students when they are with their parents at home, this email was sent over summer break.

The DOE also says groomers will bribe, extort, isolate, intimidate, manipulate, and/or coerce the student.

We can find public examples of nearly all of these.

Here is the table of “incentives” made to public school students at Ohio University. $190,100 that was not available for professors that got fired but was available to encourage students to take an injection they didn’t want at least up to that point.

“Up To Date” Students at Ohio University do not have to isolate in quarantine if they are exposed to COIVD-19. Students who are unvaccinated or fully vaccinated and not boosted are required to isolate and quarantine away from others at Ohio University.

https://www.ohio.edu/coronavirus/vaccine/distribution

In this next email Gillian Ice informed me I was in violation of the university policy and if I was not vaccinated I needed to get tested that week. Gillian singled me out, looked up my medical test results, and told me I was violating university policy all because I sent an email sharing my concerns about mandating an experimental EUA vaccine.

In our previous post we discussed in depth how Ohio University used “peer pressure” to coerce and manipulate students to take the EUA jab.

Another email received under public records requests from Shari Mickey-Boggs who was the chief HR officer at Wright State shows how they also had concerned parents reaching out to them about the vaccine mandate. These same emails can be found across all the Ohio Public colleges and we will share more as we go through more of the public records.

There is no doubt this type of grooming is going on all over Ohio in K-12 schools and University’s. You CAN NOT give informed consent if you are groomed into consenting, but they never cared about informed consent or any basic medical ethics for that matter.

Emails: Some of The “Peer Pressure” Gillian Ice was “Hoping To Use Won’t be Possible Due to Decisions Made by Others Following The Frustrating Changes to The CDC Guidance.”

the Ohio Public Records Act or the “Sunshine Laws.” requires that public meetings be open to the public, that public records be open and available to the public and that public records be maintained in such a manner that they will be available to the public upon request. People employed by public university’s are government employees who’s email’s are public record. Recent public records requests have uncovered some frightening anti-science and coercive actions at Ohio U.

Let’s go back to July 18th, 2021. Gillian Ice received an email from someone who is not a public employee so their name and identifying information has been redacted. The person praised Gillian for encouraging students to take the still experimental spike protein delivery vaccines through the “Bobcats get vaxxed” program and shared their thoughts.

The person’s first shares that people who have more friends who are vaccinated feel more peer pressure to get vaccinated. This person wants students to inject themselves with an Emergency Use Authorized vaccine not because it’s safe, not because it’s effective, not because COVID is a big risk to them (it’s not), but because their friends are doing it.

They finish by asking Gillian what more can be done to “facilitate peer pressure” to inject the needle.

Gillian replies the next day saying some of the “peer pressure” she was “hoping to use won’t be possible due to decisions made by others following the frustrating changes to the CDC guidance.”

The CDC guidance Gillian is likely referring to the CDC guidance prioritizing in person learning that changed about 2 weeks before her email.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/09/health/cdc-covid-schools-guidance-update/index.html

Gillian is eluding that the “peer pressure” she wanted to use involved discriminating against the people who had not received the Emergency Use Authorized injection. This would be done by keeping the unvaccinated out of class and requiring the unvaccinated to wear a mask, and requiring the unvaccinated remain distanced from their vaccinated friends who would not have to miss class, wear a mask, or remain distanced. As we will discuss in a second thankfully HB 244 stopped this discriminatory “peer pressure” from taking place. The “others” Gillian refers to is likely someone who actually understands the law and CDC guidance unlike Gillian.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/k-12-guidance.html

Gillian then lists off the “peer pressure” and vaccine promotion she was ‘allowed’ to use. This including campus injection influencers, 9 students roaming the campus to talk to other students about taking the needle injection, Applying for a grant to hire someone to engage students leader about taking the experimental injections, Incentives including like money and rewards in exchange for taking the experimental injection, a leaderboard to see what residence hall had jabbed themselves the most, pop-up clinicals for easy access to the emergency use authorized needles, and asking deans and staff the encourage their colleges to get themselves injected. Seems ethical when you put it that way, huh?

Gillian goes on to say whatever they do has to be done quickly because of Ohio House Bill 244. Gillian acknowledges that Ohio U’s pathways program and testing plan is discriminatory and that it would have to change if FDA approved vaccines are not available by the time the bill goes into affect. Gillian also mentions she is open to any and all ideas when it comes to getting people to get the vaccine injected into them.

As everyone knows still as of this post there is NO FDA APPROVED COVID-19 VACCINE AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

As we know Ohio University is still violating federal law, State law, and FDA guidelines by requiring students to receive an Emergency Use Authorized vaccine to attend Ohio University.

Despite in the above email where Gillian clearly acknowledges the FDA approval requirement and that Ohio U’s requirements would be illegal, Ohio U continued requiring students and staff get an Emergency Use Authorized (EUA) COVID-19 vaccine as still no FDA approved COVID vaccines are available.

Gillian and Ohio U will claim they are negligent to the fact COMIRNATY (Approved) is legally distinct from the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine (EUA) and that Spikevax (Approved) is legally distinct from the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (EUA). Despite documented proof they have been informed of this fact multiple times and served notice of the via legal action. Instead of dropping the illegal vaccine requirment, Ohio U and Gillian claim they now they the vaccine’s noted above are “interchangeable” and the same thing so they are all FDA approved in their minds, this is obviously not true.

After Gillian sent that email the same day July 19th, 2021 the redacted person replied.

The person giving these recommendations to Gillian makes so seemingly outrageous claims about future spread of the Delta variant. Let’s look closer at these estimates and see how accurate they really ended up being.

First, the person claims the U.S. 7 Day moving average would surpass the previous peak around August 20th. According to the CDC the Delta surge actually never surpassed the previous peak and the 7-day average didn’t either until the Omicron surge December 27th, over 4 months after the person estimated. After over 500 million EUA COVID-19 vaccines had been administered.

Source: https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#trends_dailycases_totalvaccinesadministered

Next, the person claims the Ohio 7 Day moving average would surpass the previous peak around September 5th. According to the CDC the Delta surge actually never surpassed the previous peak in Ohio and the 7-day average didn’t either until the Omicron surge December 27th, over 3 months after the person estimated. After over 16 million EUA COVID-19 vaccines had been administered in Ohio.

You can see how liberal media and Big pharma propaganda completely misinformed this person on the spread of Delta and the effectiveness of the EUA COVID vaccines. You can see how someone so misinformed giving advice and Gillian taking advice from them can be a problem. This is why people like Gillian should trust the science and data and not liberal media, big pharma, and their personal acquaintances how create ridiculously inaccurate estimates that help stoke the hysterical fear that drives illegal mandates.

Regardless this person calls these estimated calculations “trivial” despite the fact the calculations were off by 1/3 of a year and the idea the vaccine would stop spread was proven so wrong the vaccine may actually do the opposite.

After all this, this person recommends unvaccinated students be “peer pressured” by being sent home after a few weeks on campus if they do not get vaccinated, which is blatantly anti-science, discriminatory, and unethical.

The same day Gillian sent another reply. First Gillian says she would love to use to visualizations of the grossly inaccurate projection to spread fear of COVID on social media and more places.

Then Gillian says she thinks the school has a better “ability to influence students” decisions when they are on campus.

Gillian acknowledges parents (who’s biological job it is to protect their children) are opposed to their children being forced to be injected with an Emergency Use Authorized experimental vaccine with unknown side effects.

Gillian also refers to how students can do things on campus without their parents knowing, like getting needles injected into them without their parents knowledge.

There has recently been a concerning pattern of Public school employees grooming children to do things without their parents knowing or consenting. It seems this same type of behavior was being used to “influence” students to do something that “parents have strong opposition” about. This is likely why so much time and energy was used to set up over 100 vaccination clinics that saw little use overall. Gillian wanted to provide student’s every opportunity they could to be injected without their parents knowing.

The next day the redacted person replies, there really isn’t much important here except the person admitting those initial terrible projections were their own and elaborating on how they came up with such a ridiculous projection.

Gillian’s reply asks the redacted person if they have thought about writing a letter to AthensNews relating to what they had previously discussed. It’s scary to think Gillian want’s to spread these ridiculous projections and ideas of peer pressure further.

The same day the previously unknown redacted name person replies, admitting they are a member of a school’s Faculty. They also say their best idea is threatening their fellow faculty members that courses may “switch to online any time” if they do not get and encourage the experimental jab.

The reason this person being a member of a school faculty is interesting is because if this is a public school this person should be using their school email address. Their name and email address is redacted because they are either using a private email address for public work or they work at a private school. Considering they interview with AthensNews it’s very possible this is an OU faculty member using a private email.

If that is the case OU should not have redacted this name from their records, but they did. Just something interesting worth pointing out.

Gillian did not reply to the persons email. A little over 2 weeks later they sent another email after masking for all was reinstated. They share some more misinformed reasons why they personally live in fear. They admit the unvaccinated wont voluntarily wear masks, they admit required masking for the unvaccinated is unenforceable because it’s illegal, they admit they care about fairness for the vaccinated (after saying how much they want to discriminate against the unvaccinated), and finally come to what is the only sensible conclusion, that people should take their pick whether they wear a mask or not, as our lawsuit seeks to prove is everyone’s right under Ohio law anyways.

Gillian replied the next day confirming a lot of people from different perspective were unhappy with the decision to bring back the mask mandate days before the start of the semester.

She says “logical arguments do not work with people who are not logical. Hard to counter magical thinking.” What is more illogical? believing medical choice is a basic human right, or thinking vaccines and masks will stop the spread of COVID when data and science clearly show vaccines and masks have only increased spread.

Gillian then still admits she feels like she is bracing for an eventual crash into an iceberg.

The final email received in this chain the redacted person sent the next day. Again nothing really important, just them pretending Gillian Ice is the captain of OU’s metaphorical titanic, which is the ship that was famously called unsinkable and hit an iceberg and sank.

The full uncut email thread between these 2 is below. Keep in mind new emails appear at the top on inboxes so records of email thread start at the bottom and go to the top. We have received over 40,000 pages of public records so far. You can visit our file cabinet to see some of the larger documents we have uploaded. More analysis’ like this one but of those records will be out soon. This story is deep and bad. We won’t stop until we get to the bottom of it and people are held accountable for their anti-science, discriminatory, and unethical human rights violations.

Press Release: March 30th Lawsuit Update

Since Ohio U has updated their guidance on testing and masks they have filed 2 New Notices of supplemental authority. Notices of supplemental authority are used to advise or inform the courts of changes Ohio U has made to their restrictions relevant to the case. First you can catch up on our previous post about the initial mandate changes and see how these mandates still violate the law. Since that post the mask mandate has again been updated but remains unlawful as we will discuss towards the end of this press release.

The first new filing was filed 3/16/2022 after Ohio U ended their discriminatory and anti-science COVID testing mandate.

Ohio University is now only “requesting” people complete an asymptomatic test based on known exposure regardless of vaccination status.

Ohio U Implies in their health update they cited in the filing that COVID surges made the requirements necessary and they can only be relaxed now because of the low spread in Athens. This implies what we already know, Ohio University will again illegally mandate testing once cases and hysteria of new surges increase enough to justify again forcing Emergency Use Authorized tests on students and staff. That is why our lawsuit is still relevant in the case of testing.

Our most recent post discussed how mandates can easily return and Gillian Ice is already freaking out about the next COVID surge.

The full filing From Ohio U for testing is below:

The next filing came after Ohio University *updated* not ended their Mask Mandate. They claim as Gillian also falsely has that they updated their masking requirements to be “consistent” with the CDC’s guidance.

The CDC could not make it any clearer in their guidance that “At all levels, people can wear a mask based on personal preference, informed by personal level of risk.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/science/community-levels.html#print

Despite the CDC’s guidance Ohio University only actually follows this guidance, federal law, and your right to refuse medical treatment as an Ohioan when the county level is low. As they admit below in their cited webpage.

That full filing is below.

Conclusion

Ohio University’s defense is clearly very weak and desperate. Keep in mind these changes do not affect the damage previously caused by mandates. Keep in mind these mandates will return if Ohio University is not stopped by our lawsuit. People MUST BE held responsible for the nonrepairable damage they have caused students and staff at Ohio University and we will not stop until they are. Hopefully Ohio U’s weak defense and argument is sign a ruling on our case in finally near.


Mandates Won’t Be Relaxed For Long If We Don’t Take Action.

This is why our lawsuit against Ohio University is so important. We will not stop until the rights Ohio U has violated, continues to violate, and will violate in the future if not stopped are returned and protected for all.

Mandates will be back in case you haven’t paid any attention the past 2 years. Gillian is already on a hysterical anti-science rampage on her social media still sharing known misinformationist tweets this time about the BA.2 variant.

While BA.2 is more infectious just like Omicron it seems less deadly. What Gillian will never retweet is a study like this one that shows the Vaccinated were more likely to catch BA.2 than the unvaccinated. And the Boosted were more likely to catch BA.2 than the vaccinated.

This study from Denmark concluded that “Omicron BA.2 is inherently substantially more transmissible than BA.1, and that it also possesses immune-evasive properties that further reduce the protective effect of vaccination against infection”

https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2022.01.28.22270044v1

It is very likely especially during an election year we will see one of America’s political parties wait until the BA.2 surge begins, bring back mandates at the peak of the surge, and blame relaxed mandates for causing it and mandates for bringing the surge back down. They have tried to do this with nearly every surge and they have failed nearly every time to get the timing right because they really don’t know much about COVID or how it really spreads. This is how we are able to tell they are doing it.

To further prove relaxing mandates does not cause spikes we can see cases actually continue to fall across the country after mask mandates are lifted.

For example look at Germany who still hasn’t lifted their mask mandates, their Ba.1 surge never ended and cases have continued to rise with the arrival of Ba.2. Masks are FAILURES. Germany also requires a vaccine passport for most public things, so you can’t blame the unvaccinated.

Austria is another on of the few countries that still has mask mandates. What a surprise that their cases continue to surge to new records. Austria also locked down the unvaccinated so you can’t blame them.

New Zealand has had a mask mandate since august, I bet you couldn’t guess what their cases look like now. If you don’t have a vaccine in New Zealand you don’t have a vaccine passport, so we know they aren’t causing this surge.

Meanwhile In the United States where almost no one is wearing a mask, and where we have a lower vaccination rate and much lower booster rate. Cases are a low as they have been in nearly a year, despite the Surgeon General and Dr. Fauci’s lies/delusions.

So what is happening, why are the vaccinated and masked getting hit the hardest?

Well as we discussed previously for over 100 years we have known extensive mask use actually helps bacteria and disease spread.

We obviously all know those wearing masks for no reason are also the most likely to get another dose of the COVID vaccine for no reason.

Last December the WHO even warned about the dangers of boosting too much. The Director-General of the WHO warned boosters could PROLONG THE PANDEMIC AND INCREASE INEQUALITY. Maybe that’s actually why mainly the democrats want boosters, because they have been prolonging and increasing inequality this whole time.

https://news.un.org/en/story/2021/12/1108622#:~:text=Blanket%20COVID%2D19%20vaccine%20booster,(WHO)%20warned%20on%20Wednesday.

This is due to immune system fatigue. Several countries—including Israel, Denmark, Hungary, and Chile—have authorized second booster shots of COVID-19 vaccine, but concerns have recently been raised about whether this is a useful approach.

The findings from a recent study conducted in Israel suggest that a fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine does not offer significant protection from the Omicron variant, according to a January 18, 2022 Deutsche Welle article. In addition, the World Health Organization has suggested that blanket booster policies will increase inequity and prolong the pandemic by diverting vaccines toward countries with already-high levels of coverage, resulting in more opportunities for the virus to spread and mutate in less vaccinated countries.

Sarah Fortune, John LaPorte Given Professor of Immunology and Infectious Diseases and chair of the Department of Infectious Diseases at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, addressed another issue raised in the Deutsche Welle article— that frequent boosters might fatigue people’s immune systems. She explained that when immune systems repeatedly see antigens such as those provided by vaccines, T cell “exhaustion” could result. However, she said that the science is more complicated in the case of COVID-19.

“T cells become dysfunctional when they repeatedly see antigen in certain contexts—and the best studied of that biology are settings like HIV or cancer where the antigen is there all the time, not just repeated vaccination,” she said. At this stage, she said, T cell exhaustion is a concern that researchers should watch out for.

T Cells are so important to your immune system. If your T Cells are suppressed things like COVID, Cancer, and more can do a lot more damage to you.

The hall mark of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is a gradual loss of CD4+ T-cells and imbalance in CD4+ T-cell homeostasis. It is no surprise to see the spike protein which carries at least 3 HIV inserts lower T-cell counts, this is basic genome science that was either ignored or done on purpose.

The Spike Protein of the Sars-Cov-2 virus or the “Covid Vaccines”, is one of the most bioactive and potentially damaging substances known. Especially with direct (needle injection) It is known to penetrate the blood-brain barrier, cell nucleus and affect DNA replication. It is very immunogenic.

  1. Spike protein seems to reprogram immune systems in a strange way: The BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 reprograms both adaptive and innate immune responses
  2. When penetrating cell nuclei, free floating spike protein inhibits DNA Damage Repair: SARS–CoV–2 Spike Impairs DNA Damage Repair and Inhibits V(D)J Recombination In Vitro. The mechanisms described here are used both in formation of immune memory of any future illness, as well as preventing DNA mutations leading to cancer.

The scientific literature clearly shows the effects this is causing. If the vaccine is causing extreme immunogenic affects it would explain the currently unexplained rise in diseases that aren’t COVID after the vaccines rolled out. It’s pretty obvious what’s happening at this point.

People like some who are still pushing boosters at Ohio U are either ignorant to the actual science and data and shouldn’t be employed or they know what is happening and are still doing it for another reason, and shouldn’t be employed.

For these reasons I fully expect The Ba.2 surge to be America’s biggest yet in a few weeks. If there is one thing I know for sure its that mandates will only make the surge worse for everyone as we have seen with every past previous surge. For that reason, mandates must be stopped.

Ohio University Is STILL Violating State Law, Federal Law, and now even CDC recommendations.

In the past month the world has seen major changes to mandates as cases decrease after the winter and politician’s pushing mandates saw their polling data. But not Ohio University, they continue to violate State Law, Federal Law, FDA Guidelines, and now even CDC recommendations.

Hopefully by now you heard an internal memo from a firm that conducted polling for President Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign advised the Democratic Party on how it can present itself as having “defeated” COVID-19 and end unpopular anti-science mandates.

Following this many changes were made including congress no longer wearing masks, and the CDC updating its guidance. The city of Athens where Ohio University is, was the last standing statutory city in the state of Ohio that had a law that requires face coverings when entering into places open to the public. Athens even ended their mandate following CDC guidance.

https://www.thepostathens.com/article/2022/03/city-council-mask-mandate-ends

If anyone in Athens still thought masks worked it sure didn’t seem like it this weekend.

Thousands of students flooded the yards of Mill street to party maskless this weekend, after having their spring semesters essentially cancelled by hysterical “health officials” for 2 years straight. Some return to normality is happening in Athens, but not at Ohio U where hysterical government employees continue to violate laws and health guidance.

So what has Ohio U done? as of March 23rd asymptomatic testing has been suspended. vaccines, and masks are still required in class.

So let’s go over specifically everything Ohio University is violating by continuing these anti-science mandates.

CDC Guidelines.

The CDC could not make it any clearer that “At all levels, people can wear a mask based on personal preference, informed by personal level of risk.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/science/community-levels.html#print

Despite the CDC’s guidance Ohio University requires masks in all indoor spaces with a with COVID community level. They even say this is “designated by the CDC” but if you actually read the CDC’s guidance that we just discussed above you’ll notice this is either another bold faced lie or another example of Ohio University’s “health officials” being illiterate, it’s hard to tell anymore.

Masks are also required in classrooms, laboratories, studios, clinical settings, and other similar learning spaces, even on OHIO campuses located in counties with low or medium COVID-19 community levels, again this is despite the CDC specifically providing guidance not to require this.

https://www.ohio.edu/coronavirus/safety-protocols-ppe/mask-policy

To actually comply with CDC guidelines Ohio University should immediately make masks full optional in all locations, especially classrooms where the negatives of masks are obviously outweighing any benefit.

FDA Guidelines & Federal Law

Title 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(I-III) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act states: individuals to whom an emergency use authorized product is administered are informed —

(I) that the Secretary has authorized the emergency use of the product;

(II) of the significant known and potential benefits and risks of such use, and of the extent to which such benefits and risks are unknown; and

(III) of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product, of the consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product, and of the alternatives to the product that are available and of their benefits and risks.

Anyone going to Ohio University knows Ohio U has violated this federal law time and time again.

Gillian Ice and Ohio U Hid the Fact That Ohio University has NOT Administering FDA Approved Vaccines and on more than one occasion.

Gillian told a bold faced lie about the FDA’s approval of Spikevax in her February 1st Update to Ohio U. She claims The FDA approval changes Spikevax “from Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to full approval”, But Spikevax was never Emergency Use Authorizedthe “Moderna COVID-19 vaccine” was Emergency Use Authorized and it still is.

The FDA’s letter of approval clearly states this is not true and that “The products are legally distinct with certain differences”

From Page 3 of: https://www.fda.gov/media/144636/download

This is also clearly stated on the FDA fact sheet for healthcare providers which obviously Gillian either did not read or did read and is knowingly lying about.

The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is Emergency Use Authorized (EUA) for doses 1 & 2, as well as additional booster doses.

Spikevax is only FDA approved for doses 1 & 2, it is EUA for booster doses.

https://www.fda.gov/media/144637/download

Page 7 of The Letter of Authorization for Spikevax literally even admits Spikevax and COMIRNATY are not available in the United States as of 1/31/22. COMIRNATY has been approved since August, why else would Pfizer continue to produce the EUA vaccine and still have no FDA approved COMIRNATY available unless it was for the liability protection?

Which is why yesterday before sent this public health update I informed her and OU COVID Operations that COMIRNATY AND SPIKEVAX ARE UNAVAILABLE which is why the EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATION for the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine was reissued.

So Ohio University is not properly informing those they are forcing to get vaccinated of the Emergency Use Authorization of the products.

Ohio University is still requiring masks and vaccination despite the fact that all available masks and COVID vaccines in the United states are emergency use authorized.

And obviously the endless anti-science recommendations to get more boosters from Ohio U show they are not informing recipients about the significant harms and completely unknown long-term side effects. There is no one alive on Earth that knows the side effects of the COVID vaccines past 3 years, no one, zero.

Why? because none of these COVID vaccines have even existed for 3 years yet. This is being communicated to none of the young healthy students being forced to inject themselves over and over. Ohio University is violating every piece of this law and they should immediately make all masks and COVID vaccines fully optional.

State Law

Before we go any further it is important to remember or acknowledge the FACT that there is NO FDA APPROVED COVID VACCINE AVAILABLE IN AMERICA. Anyone denying this fact continues to deny reality.

On October 13th, 2021 House Bill 244 went into law in Ohio. Which created Ohio Code Section 3792.04 | Public schools and state institutions of higher education – prohibition against mandatory vaccinations and discrimination.

This Ohio Law clearly says no University can “Require an individual to receive a vaccine for which the United States food and drug administration has not granted full approval”. We already know there are no FDA approved vaccines available in America, Only Emergency Use Authorized ones. Despite this Ohio University continues to REQUIRE Emergency Use Authorized COVID Vaccines.

Ohio U has also defended this mandate by claiming it is not a vaccine requirement because there is an exemption, but despite what Ohio U might say there is no guarantee your exemption will be approved by Ohio U. Ohio University also admits they “require” you to have a COVID vaccine or approved exemption which again is not guaranteed. So the only sure way not to be kicked out of OU is to get an EUA COVID vaccine, still.

https://www.ohio.edu/coronavirus/safety-protocols-ppe

Because there is no FDA approved COVID vaccine available in America, and because Ohio U continues to require a COVID vaccination as the only sure option to remain on campus, Ohio U is blatantly violating Ohio Code Section 3792.04.

Don’t take my word for it, their own emails received through public records law continue to show they know the vaccines are Emergency use Authorized (EUA) and they have discussed how to bounce around this law.

In the email below sent on October 13th (the day House Bill 244 became law) Barbara Nalazek who is the Associate Director of Legal Affairs at Ohio University asked Gillian Ice and others if health care providers had an “OBLIGATION” to tell a patient that they are getting the EUA vaccine instead of the FDA approved COMIRNATY (which was and still is unavailable in America).

under Section 1, Article I of the Ohio Constitution Ohioans have the fundamental right to refuse medical treatment to protect the liberties of personal security, bodily integrity, and autonomy.

Steele v. Hamilton Cty. Community Mental Health Bd., 90 Ohio St. 3d 176, 180–181 (2000). “The liberty interests infringed upon when a person is medicated against his or her wishes is significant … This type of intrusion clearly compromises one’s liberty interests in personal security, bodily integrity and autonomy.”

Furthermore, The Ohio Constitution “confirms that freedom of choice in health care is a fundamental right,” Hamilton County Judge Alison Hatheway said.

Every person at Ohio University, under the Ohio Constitution has the fundamental right to freedom of choice in health care. They can deny masks, testing, and vaccines just as they can accept masks, testing, and vaccines. Ohio University’s willingness to violate this fundamental right is disgusting, anti-science, and anti-freedom.

Ohio University should immediately stop violating this fundamental right and give everyone at Ohio University their freedom of choice back.

Ohio University’s Own Policy

Ohio University Administrative policy 40.001 states: There shall be no discrimination against any person in employment or educational opportunities because of race, color, religion, age, ethnicity, national origin, national ancestry, sex, pregnancy, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, military service or veteran status, mental or physical disability, or genetic information.

according to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Genetic information includes information about an individual’s genetic tests and the genetic tests of an individual’s family members, as well as information about the manifestation of a disease or disorder in an individual’s family members (i.e. family medical history). Family medical history is included in the definition of genetic information because it is often used to determine whether someone has an increased risk of getting a disease, disorder, or condition in the future. Genetic information also includes an individual’s request for, or receipt of, genetic services, or the participation in clinical research that includes genetic services by the individual or a family member of the individual, and the genetic information of a fetus carried by an individual or by a pregnant woman who is a family member of the individual and the genetic information of any embryo legally held by the individual or family member using an assisted reproductive technology.

According to Ohio University Administrative policy 40.001 Discrimination occurs when a person or group of people are denied rights, benefits, equitable treatment, or access to programs or facilities available to all others because of membership in a protected class. including the genetic information protected class as listed in part A of policy 40.001. This means Ohio University’s Vaccine Mandate is directly in violation of Ohio University’s own anti-discrimination policy.

Interestingly, Ohio University’s Affirmative Action Policy page mentions all the protected groups except for Genetic Information. https://www.ohio.edu/equity-civil-rights/policy

According to the OU policy harassment is defined as conduct that is directed towards a person or a group of persons on the basis of any protected class listed in part (A) of this policy, that is Severe enough to deny or limit participation in or full benefit of employment or educational opportunity at Ohio university;

or Severe or pervasive enough to create a work or educational environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive.

By Ohio University’s own definition OU is participating in the targeted harassment of unvaccinated students and staff. By now everyone knows someone who has been removed from the class they paid or went in debt for because they weren’t wearing a mask correctly. By now we all know someone who was unable to go somewhere they were excited to go to because of a likely false positive COVID test. Ohio’s mandates are clearly creating a hostile and abusive learning environment.

Public Misinformation Update: March 15, 2022

Testing has been made fully optional. Masks and Vaccines remain required.

Tuesday, March 15, 2022 Gillian Ice sent out another “Public health update” via email to Ohio U students and staff. This email refreshingly has much less misinformation than previous updates, but it’s also short.

The email begins explaining that Ohio University is lifting the asymptomatic test mandate.

They say they are lifting this part of the mandate because cases are declining. Cases got this low in the winter, so why was testing still required then?

https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view?list_select_state=Ohio&data-type=Risk&list_select_county=39009

As you may know at no level of community spread does the CDC recommend required asymptomatic testing. In fact, the CDC only recommends testing if exposed at every level of community transmission. It even recommends schools only screen people who are exposed. Ohio U’s new testing policy finally reflects the CDC’s recommendations.

Why did it take Ohio U so long to make this change?

One reason is that other Inter-University council member schools dropped their testing mandates. Kent State dropped theirs today admitting it wont be back until “further notice”

The Inter-University Council of Ohio (IUC) was established in 1939 by Ohio State as a “voluntary” educational association of Ohio’s public universities. Today the association represents all of Ohio’s 14 public universities. They have turned into a bureaucratic organization that uses its influence over Ohio’s university’s for profit.

This email recieved under public record law shows Eli Faes from Toledo saying the IUC has a “Core cabal”

They want to discuss HB 244 the Ohio law the banned Universities from mandating Emergency Use Authorized vaccine which they are knowingly doing anyway. In the Email below in a discussion about HB 244 Mike Suver the VP of government operations at the IUC says he does not follow Ohio Department of health guidance or orders.

Below are over 1,000 Pages of emails between IUC members. Gillian Ice is in here plenty, I encourage you to look through it. These people know what they are doing is wrong and they continue to do it and discuss how they can dance around the law.

Finally the last time Ohio University reported asymptomatic testing only a single student tested and testing negative. Literally almost no one is complying with the testing mandate because it was that stupid and anti-science, and that is exactly why Gillian wants to bring testing requirements back. This is why we must stop them, this is why we are suing them.

Finally after announcing testing is optional Gillian pleads to people to take a test anyways, despite the CDC’s recommendations.

Public Misinformation Update: March 1, 2022

February 25th, The Centers For Disease Control updated their mask guidance. The Graphic below summarizes the new guidance.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/about-face-coverings.html

As of the time of this post Athens County, Ohio is in the low spread level, which the CDC recommends fully optional mask wearing, as we have, and recommended to the school countless times. The CDC level check is below so you can check the levels at the current time while you’re reading this.

There are plenty of problems with the new CDC guidance just like the previous guidance, but it is a step in the right direction. The biggest problem is how easily it is by increasing testing to get the level up to justify reinstating mask mandates. Mask mandates will return in the fall and maybe sooner, unless more action is taken to stop mandates, which is why our lawsuit is so important.

These changes from the CDC led to Gillian Ice releasing a new public health update and Ohio University updating their mask mandate, not lifting it as the CDC clearly recommends. Masks are still required in classrooms, laboratories, studios and clinical settings as well as on campus transportation regardless of COVID-19 community level. This Violates the Ohio Constitution and your right to refuse medical treatment, choose your medical treatments, and prevention methods. This also Violates Federal law and FDA guidelines which requires the right to refuse EUA authorized products, which masks are.

https://www.ohio.edu/news/2022/03/ohio-university-announces-updated-mask-guidance?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=undergraduate-students-list&utm_campaign=PublicHealth_3_1_22

Furthermore the CDC BOLDY States “At all levels, people can wear a mask based on personal preference, informed by personal level of risk.”

Ohio University’s current mask mandate violates federal law, state law, FDA EUA guidance, and CDC Guidance. That’s how anti-science it has become.

The CDC guidance emphasizes in their Higher Ed guidance in its first key point that it does not replace any state or local laws, rules and regulations with which Ohio University must comply.

The CDC further emphasizes in its introduction that Ohio University determine how
to implement the guidance “in accordance with applicable law”. and states that this guidance does not replace any applicable federal, state, or local health and safety laws, rules, and regulations. That’s from the document Gillian Ice Submitted in her Affidavit defending the mandates, Thanks Gillian!

Gillian Ice Affidavit Exhibit A

So lets see the latest misinformation Gillian is emailing students. First she reminds everyone about the new mask policy changes. She then makes the false claim they are based on CDC guidance, as we discussed earlier the CDC currently recommends no required masks.

Despite this CDC guidance, Gillian still thinks its necessary to again violate the guidance by breaking the law to continue forcing students to wear masks against their will in class.

Gillian says people have shared concerns for their safety without a stricter mask mandate, I ask these people 2 simple questions:

  1. Do you think masks work?
  2. Are you still able to wear a mask without a mandate?

This is why medical choice is such an important human right. Our lawsuit does not seek to prevent a single person that wants to wear a mask from wearing a mask.

Next Gillian tells everyone take 2 extra COVID tests because of Spring Break travel. Because we know a certain amount will get false positives this will lead to a spike in the cases, which the University may use to tighten masks mandates if it temporarily raises the county COVID level. This is just another reason Requiring Asymptomatic Testing May Seem Harmless But It is CLEARLY Causing More Harm Than Good.

Finally Gillian asks the community to help us get cases to the low level, which as of this post they are, by continuing to use the failed prevention measures. But if Gillian really wanted cases to get lower she would quit recommending anti-science prevention methods that are based on her politics more than anything else, and recommend proven effective and safe treatments and prevention methods for COVID.

The timing of Ohio University’s mask changes is also odd, they made the change Tuesday in the middle of the day, 4 days after the CDC announced the new guidance. It could relate to the unexpected lifting of the Athens City Mask Mandate the night before. 😉


Bonus:

Gillian Ice’s Affidavit, we will be writing about this soon but it’s so bad I thought everyone should get a chance to read it now.

Cases always increase during mask mandates and always decrease after mask mandates are lifted.

Since January 1st many states have lifted or changed their mask restrictions and guidance, we are going to look at those changes state by state and see if cases increased and decreased after mask mandates ended.

Since January 1st 2022:

  1. California lifted their mask mandate
  2. Nevada lifted their mask mandate
  3. New Mexico lifted their mask mandate
  4. New York lifted their mask mandate
  5. Rhode Island lifted their mask mandate
  6. Delaware lifted their mask mandate
  7. Virginia banned mask mandates
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/us/cdc-mask-guidance-states.html and https://web.archive.org/web/20220101033741/https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/us/cdc-mask-guidance-states.html

So if masks are so good at stopping the spread of COVID we would expect these states to see a spike in spread and COVID cases right? Let’s see if the data shows that is the case. Call data is from the CDC.

Periods during mask mandates are highlighted in yellow

Periods when mask mandates are lifted are highlighted in green

California

February 16th California Ended their mask mandate, cases have continued to decrease after they increased during the mask mandate.

Nevada

February 10th California Ended their mask mandate, cases have continued to decrease after they increased during the mask mandate.

New Mexico

February 17th New Mexico Ended their mask mandate, cases have continued to decrease after they increased during the mask mandate.

New York

February 10th New York Ended their mask mandate, cases have continued to decrease after they increased during the mask mandate.

Rhode Island

February 9th Rhode Island Ended their mask mandate, cases have continued to decrease after they increased during the mask mandate.

Delaware

February 11th Delaware Ended their mask mandate, cases have continued to decrease after they increased during the mask mandate.

Virginia

February 11th Virginia’s new governor banned school mask mandate, cases have continued to decrease after they increased during mask mandates.

So cases always increase during mask mandates and always decrease after mask mandates are lifted.

Does this mean mask mandates work?

Ohio University Should Immediately Make Masks Optional.
