Blog: COVID-19 and Scientology's Flag Land Base: A Report From Our Source in Clearwater - 2020-03-30
Paying Publics at Flag Get Face Masks; Sea Org Members Do Not. Why? This photo is obviously a shoop. However, we use it to make a point: Flag Land Base is making a mockery of the serious risks posed by COVID-19. Flag ignores social distancing; does not provide everyone on the Base with personal protective gear; and continues to stay open and provide services. Scientology does this even as the Catholic Church and other religious denominations have cancelled public religious gatherings such as Mass and Sunday services in order to protect their parishioners. Scientology refuses to do this. Scientology leader David Miscavige dismissed the COVID-19 "hysteria" in a recent public letter.
Our source is a medical professional in the know. Our source has told us about current conditions at the Flag Land Base and has raised excellent questions about Flag and COVID-19:
We understand the public are provided with masks. Are they surgical masks? We further understand the staff are not wearing masks. Why not?
