Schools should follow the guidance provided by the State and local health depts. This guidance could vary by state.

Because kids are just as vulnerable! They pass sicknesses to each other!!!

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!

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.

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 enough

Kids aren't even at risk for covid. To require masks for children is pure insanity.

It's been proven that any "Variant" has little to no effect on children and they do not transmit.

Based on the fact my little one comes home with a SOAKING WET mask every day last year, I'm not sure the mask helped reduce anything. I personally feel no mask would spread less germs

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.

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!

Public schools are socialism. Pull your kids out and educate them yourself. However the publicly funded child care is probably worth the property taxes it costs, so it's a wash for most folks.

I work at brightwood in madras for starters so obviously the worker shortage has hit us badly! I have been working 11 hour shifts since the beginning of COVID and there seems to be no end in sight everyone is over worked and extremely tired to the point where people call in daily just to get rest

I'm a manager for a gas station I should have about 8 to 10 employees and I have 1. People in this state do not understand how gas stations work but yet are so impatient, so pathetic, and demand to be served the second they pull in, it's getting out of hand! And this state NEEDS TO GO self-serve

Vote with your money what practices you are willing to accept. Early in the Trump pandemic I stopped going to places where their attitudes and practices I felt unsafe. I'm tired of hearing touting their personal freedom at the expense of societal responsibility.

Yes, because we all need to support stopping this virus. Saving American lives, bringing back our economy and our way of life depends upon our actions. If any business can't come to the assistance of the American people, then I'm not shopping there.
