But, not as much as previously, now that the virus appears to be waning. And kids, by and large, do not get seriously ill if they do catch it. I think common sense should reign, and continue spacing. And abide by CDC recos if the virus returns.

It will bring the pandemic back to higher numbers of I'll and dying. The kids wearing masks because they have responsible, caring adult parents will be bullied by the mask less kids who have childish parents acting like 2 year olds having tantrums

Seriously? If there is any bullying going on, it is by the "virtuous" mask-wearing kids of anyone who does not go along with them. That is the toxic environment in the schools. But you can ignore the science of the kids being safe without masks, my kids will happily ignore your kids.

Kids can survive covid in a week if they get it and masks arn't good for them

The masks are proven to work against spreading the virus. I am also concerned about the School Board overreaching and bending to the anti-maskers. Would these same people who claim masks don't work want their surgeon to show up for a procedure without a mask?

Because the vaccinated rate is so low and hospitals are full

The hospitals are not full because of kids who are unvaccinated. The important things are the fact that the IMMUNITY rate (combined natural immunity and vaccinated immunity) is VERY high, and Omicron is of almost zero threat to kids. It is time to consider all risks, and assess the risks.

No, I'm not concerned!

No one should be wearing masks, they don't work and if kids get it they can survive and get over it in a week

Over 1,000 children in the US have died from covid. It's a disgrace that you represent the LDS church.

The science has consistently been clear that this virus does not impact kids. Let them breathe, smile, and experience a healthy, normal life again.

You can't just make up facts to fit your narrative. Per the CDC website, over 1,000 children in the United States have died from covid. Let me guess, "pro-life"?

2 in 1 million are at risk for severe disease. That is certainly less than the amount of depression, anxiety or suicides alone. The collateral damage has been devastating.

It has been medically proven that long term mask usage is harmful to your immune system, which if overprotected can stop functioning correctly. Not to mention the physiological problems they create.

Kids shouldn't have been wearing them this whole damn time! It's like the flu. Stay home for 3 days and be done with it! #letsgooo

Masking our children, who are breathing their damaging expelled bacteria and Co2 for eight + hours a day five days a week, is NOT okay! I know public Schools are being incentivized with money from our Governmen Public tax dollars. There is a huge conflict of interest there! Freedom of choice!

Discipline and technique of mask wearing among the general populous is not effective. This is evident by the omicron surge which occurred during a mask mandate. I feel that the social alienation caused by obscuring peoples faces outweigh the marginal benefits of poorly worn masks.

No. Masks are not that effective and more of a control tool of the Left. Yes, I wear a mask but it is so I don't get hassled.

Why would anyone be worried? This is Omicron, the kids are under effectively zero threat by it, and if one is worried about no masks, that person would have to be completely clueless about the science, which shows that the masks are doing nothing to stop omicron

CB, your stats are false. There is ZERO support for a claim of 1,000 kids dying FROM COVID. Johns Hopkins: a research team reviewed about 48,000 cases of children under 18 reported to have COVID last year... “Our report found a mortality rate of 0% among children without a [PEC]

We need to build our immune systems. This is how we fight viruses. Get healthy. Yes some will get a little sick. Yes some will get a lot sick. This is how it has always been through life. We need to see each other’s smiles and beauty. 🥰

We have enjoyed 3 concerts this yr. Since the remodel the acoustics are way better! I can see how the home owners can be bothered by the noise. They should have priority. The venue should be out in Terrebonne & w/better access to parking we think. It’s a big venue that keeps expanding & more people.

I live a mile away. I hear every concert from all the hardcore rock shows to the screaming over a country artist. As long as it ends by 10 (and it always does!) then I am happy. I attended multiple shows this year and each one got better and better. Keep the electronic shows coming!

We live in Tillicum Village, at least 2 miles away from the amphitheater. This summer the concerts have literally shook our windows at times. We are music lovers and don’t mind the concerts, but this has been terrible. We think it must be the new stage because it’s never been this way in the past.

The concerts are great while you're there. However, I'm almost 4 miles away and can feel the bass in my house during most of the concerts. It's extremely frustrating when it's not peaceful inside your own home. I believe that a good compromise can be reached and hope that happens for next year.

I live near Kiwanis Park, and the noise from the amphitheater has been excessive all summer long, especially the last 3 or so concerts. It's never been this loud in years prior. The noise from the closer to me Vince Genna stadium isn't even that loud or obnoxious.
