Scriptures to encourage Christians to wear masks

I live in a blue county in a red state. These are scriptures I am putting together to encourage my church leaders to put a mask mandate in place for church services. The city has a mask mandate for indoor gatherings, but isn’t enforcing it. The leaders aren’t stupid, they know that masks work and have tried to encourage vaccination, but they are afraid to insist on masks, I think because they don’t want to drive away more conservative members.

Matthew 4:5-7 NIV
[5] Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. [6] “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “ 'He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.' ” [7] Jesus answered him, “It is also written: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.' ”

1 Peter 2:13-15 NIV
[13] Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, [14] or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. [15] For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people.

Proverbs 27:12 NIV
[12] The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.

Philippians 2:4 CSB
[4] Everyone should look not to his own interests, but rather to the interests of others.

James 4:17 NIV
[17] If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn't do it, it is sin for them.

Any other scriptures you can think of? Thanks for your help.

She spread election conspiracies. It ruined her life.

For all who wonder how people believe such ridiculous conspiracy theories about the election, this might be enlightening. I found it to be an interesting read.

NYT: how safe are you from Covid when you fly?

Neat graphics on this.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/04/17/travel/flying-plane-covid-19-safety.html

For anyone who can’t access it, the gist is that the filtration system on planes does a great job of limiting your exposure to Covid on a plane, but you should definitely wear a mask. Your greater danger is probably at the airport, especially if you patronize a restaurant or bar.

MIT Predicted in 1972 That Society Will Collapse This Century. New Research Shows We're on Schedule.

Study author Gaya Herrington told Motherboard that in the MIT World3 models, collapse “does not mean that humanity will cease to exist,” but rather that “economic and industrial growth will stop, and then decline, which will hurt food production and standards of living… In terms of timing, the BAU2 scenario shows a steep decline to set in around 2040.”
