(TheFreedomFlag.com)- NBC reporter Sam Brock couldn’t hold in his shock during a news report this week about a Florida supermarket that allows customers and employees to simply…go about their day.
It comes after a video of shoppers and workers in a South Florida grocery store was shared online, causing outrage among those who believe citizens should be forced to wear masks or remain at home until the pandemic is over.
The footage from Oakes Farms Seed to Table Market in Naples offered a glimpse of what life was like before the destructive lockdown measures were put in place. When Sam Brock reported on the footage, and expressed his shock, he quickly gained tens of thousands of retweeted and thousands of comments.
“As #Flordia [sic] fights community spread of COVID on a massive scale, this is a 15-second snapshot of a supermarket in Naples,” he complained.

“Many employees and customers – even older ones – with no masks on inside. Store sign outside cites ‘medical exemptions,’ we can’t ask questions,” he added.
The owner of the store, Alfie Oakes, told NBC that he doesn’t believe masks work – something that White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci said at the beginning of the pandemic, too.
“That’s total hogwash,” he said. “Why don’t we shut the world down because of the heart attacks? Why don’t we lock down cities because of the heart attacks?
Oakes managed to navigate around a local mask mandate by placing a sign outside of his store telling visitors that they did not need to wear one if they have a medical condition. He does not enforce the rule and does not ask people about their medical condition.
“Those in our lovely government have ordered all persons entering indoor facilities to wear a mask. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask, you are exempt from this order. Due to HIPAA and the 4th Amendment we cannot legally ask you about your medical condition,” the sign says.
The sign also said that, if people are seen in the store without a mask, management will “assume you have a medical condition and we will welcome you inside to support our business.”
