Should elementary schools require masks in the fall?
Yes, masks should be required!
No more masks!
Follow the science, there are too many adverse side effects to children wearing masks all day. UNNECESSARY!!! ENOUGH!!!Reply
Follow the science. Kids don’t need to wear a mask. Besides, it is instilling fear in them. Let the children be free. What’s next, should we build each kid a bubble to live in? Come on man enough is enoughReply
Kids aren't even at risk for covid. To require masks for children is pure insanity.Reply
I dont know why this is even being discussed AS per news report right here on this website schools here will open in the fall WITHOUT masks for teachers or students.Reply
It's been proven that any "Variant" has little to no effect on children and they do not transmit.Reply
The scientific evidence does NOT support masking. In fact, the literature shows masking can INCREASE risk of viral and bacterial infections AND can cause hypoxia. No child should sacrifice the right to breathe due to protocols that are not evidence-based.Reply
Why are we teaching out children to be in fear while at school, the place they should feel the most safe? They do not need to wear them anywhere else. Let it be a choice!Reply
if not masks, how about clear face shields.Reply
Schools should follow the guidance provided by the State and local health depts. This guidance could vary by state.Reply
There are many children who have not gotten the covid shots!Reply
Because kids are just as vulnerable! They pass sicknesses to each other!!!Reply
Way the question is framed sounds like a push poll. Anyway, the virus in question is extremely opportunistic. Masking policies should reflect its deviousness and depend on day to day positivity rates and types of variants. 100's of children have died and/or have gotten the MIS disease. Testing!Reply
With the Delta variant on the rise, we need to ensure the virus will not spread in our schools among our children, who can not be vaccinated yet. It is a little thing, wearing masks, which makes a huge difference. I taught all winter/spring with masks. Kids are resilient and flexible.Reply
