Masks limit transmission of Covid. Period.

According to the MO Health Department study done recently, masks significantly reduce the spread of COVID https://www.kansascity.com/news/coronavirus/article256266117.html Look at the science, not the politics

How effective was quarantining students, teachers & others in their homes? If you refuse to get the vaccine, a mask should be your only choice. Anything else is irresponsible for those who would, without a thought for anyone else, pass it on to someone with a medical condition, or the elderly.

Masking works when done correctly. Our children deserve a safe learning environment.

Correct Wendi. Masks stop a lot of the COVID spread. Nothing stops 100% of the spread, but few things in life are 100%. Football helmets don`t stop 100% of players head injuries, but no player in his right mind would take the field without one.

Yes data shows masking works. If the AG could stop looking at everything through the lens of politics, he might also see it.

Correct Sue. Politics has ended the lives of many misguided people unfortunately. These days science often takes a back seat to political opportunists.

Data shows it helps to reduce infections along with reducing the flu. This is a public health crisis! Unless our elected officials have a medical degree, they need to sit down. Let the trained professionals lead us out of this nightmare.

If your mask fogs your glasses, or if your mask still allows you to smell odors, and you still feel it is protecting you from Covid. Then it is not the mask, that is failing. It is your brain, that is failing. Meaning you need two masks and masking tape on top of them.

The mask is not saving anyone from anything, I ocassionally wear a N95 for work related dust issues, the dust is obviously thicker than a invisible pathogen but gets by anyway to some extent and you can see the dirt spots where it comes through. The mask is a worthless control tactic.

Then please don't wear it. Please get covid. Please be admitted to a hospital. Please be on a ventilator. Please put your love ones through this. And after they watch you die, at least the herd is thinned out a bit more for the smarter, healthier people.

I sometimes wear a mask when doing woodworking projects. 72 years old and have never caught Covid. Have worked with, mainly Oak and Hickory, but many other types of wood as well. The masks catch large particles like wood dust. But they are mainly for fear tactics from liberals.

They obviously do nothing. Why keep doing what has not worked so far?

Masks and vaccines DO work. Neither is a guarantee you won't get covid or flu etc.. they greatly reduce the chances of getting it or greatly reduce your symptoms. I'm living proof. I'd be dead had it not been for vaccinations

I hope they continue with the mask mandate. Then the fines the schools will have pay, can be given to underpaid state employees.

mask effectiveness in the school setting has not been shown and there are negative physical and mental effects of masks

It is unconstitutional to allow non legislative CPS elected officials to make decisions for parents. The legislative branch of our government decides these rules not these officials who make up rules. Boone county doesn’t even have a mask order. Over reach has to be checked.

Paper and cloth masks are not effective. Is the school system able and willing to supply a fresh N95 mask to students and staff daily? If not, then, they need to let it go.

Because being 18 or over living in Boone Co gives you zero public health education/credentials to make health policies. We have real experts in that field, elected, that should be making these decisions. Let's have qualified, accountable, officials making these policies.

The Science is in, and Fauci is out. He has forfeited his credibility, and so has the CDC. They flip flop daily, and change their fake data, more often than they change their underwear.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt has made the decision. Any and all mask demands are now illegal, null, and void. It is no longer defensible. Discussion is closed. It is over. There will be no masks required. You may wear one if you want. But you can't make anyone else wear one. ROTFLOL
