Violet Affleck, daughter of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, has always been seen wearing a face mask in public, even in the scorching heat of California.

The 18-year-old revealed that she had contracted a “post-viral condition” in 2019, which gave her a first-hand experience of how even minor viruses can have serious, lingering effects. As a result, she chooses to wear a mask to protect herself.

During her passionate speech, Violet explained her health struggles and emphasized the importance of preventative measures like mask availability, air filtration, and Far-UVC light in government facilities. She also made a strong case against mask bans, advocating for the expansion of high-quality free tests and treatment, stressing that bans make vulnerable community members less safe.

Violet highlighted the severe impact of long COVID, a condition that affects one in ten infections and can cause debilitating neurological and cardiovascular issues, impacting a person’s ability to work, move, see, and think.
