Does freedom of speech allow 50,000 people to gather together to protest, without social distancing during a Major Global Pandemic?

Update:

(for example black lives matter protests about George Floyd)

    Unfortunately, yes, it does. It doesn't excuse their absolute stupidity and shameless disregard for public health though

    I see no legal violation in what you've posted.

    According to the Constitution it does.

    You're thinking of "freedom of assembly" and "the right to petition your government". 

    As most followed CDC guidelines wearing masks, they have every right to do so. 

    Now, go do your duty: 

    Find a photo of one guy not wearing a mask.

    No.

    That would be our 1st Amendment Rights of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    And there is nothing in the Constitution that voids that right in times of pandemic.
