Coeur d'Alene City Council Emergency Meeting - Wes Somerton
Coeur d'Alene City Chief Criminal Deputy City Attorney Wes Somerton - "What that creates is that it helps law enforcement. I can't wear a cloth face mask, then you need to wear a shield. No one gets exempted. Because the shield isn't going to restrict or affect the breathing for legitimate or non-legitimate claims."
CDA City Council Dan Gookin responses - "Which science did you discuss to make this change?"
Wes Somerton - "I didn't discuss anything with the scientists."
Gookin - "I read that the CDC said facemarks are not effective."
Somerton - "That's fine. I am not here to talk about CDC findings."
Gookin - "So this is all for show."
Somerton - "That is for you to make the determination."
