5-Year-Old Turned Away From Urgent Care for Not Wearing Mask, Despite Medical Exemption

In today’s episode of ‘The People’s Testaments,’ Polly’s guest April recounts medical discrimination at an urgent care in Georgia when her 5-year-old daughter suffered an asthma attack and was turned away for not wearing a mask, despite having a medical exemption due to her reactive airway disease. “Their oath is to ‘do no harm’ and (to make her) wear a mask they’re going to be doing her more harm.”
