My wife and children are vehemently against them. They would think I was putting them through trouble if I made them wear them.
So let's get this straight. You are the father of the family. You are the sole provider. Your job is currently at risk because of not having the Covid shots. You are willing to waste money to drive to Florida. If you lose your job, you will have no income. Your wife presumably doesn't go out to work. She therefore would not be able to support the family. You are letting the whims of your wife and children override common sense and prudence and your authority.
Have I missed anything?
Your wife and children NEED to put up with wearing masks. If for no other reason than to wake them up to the fact that YOU are responsible for them, and not the other way around. They need to be taught a lesson that sometimes it's not about what they want, but what is best for them in the long run.
I sure hope your wife is prepared and capable of going out to work. Otherwise, bills have a way of adding up quickly. But then if you have enough money to "get a lawyer" for this, you really don't get much of my sympathy. Sorry.
My own husband knows how much I hate wearing masks--and this despite decades of wearing them, an exemption, and the proper use and techniques with them. But I wear them occasionally *as a sign of respect* and act of charity for him, (and many others that are truly afraid, and aren't able to understand some things because of lack of medical background) and to not make a fuss and to add to the stress of his already over-stressed plate. (I both know the rules of wearing masks, and when they don't make any sense--but there are few people here on these forums with any medical background--that's why it's futile to discuss certain topics here--people too easily swallow misinformation and the latest "Jane Ruby" or Stew Peters' sensationalism podcasts and think they know things--well, they do, but it's all misinformation. But anyway...
We were hit very hard with Covid in our area, as were many parts of Canada. We also both had it, and it's REAL, and is NOT the flu, contrary to popular misbelief. It is starting to just be an endemic disease, which is good! There is light at the end of a long tunnel, and our country is opening up more fully.
But anyway, good luck in your pursuit, whatever it may be.
