In New York City, Broadway theaters have extended their mask mandates through June, and there are rumblings that if case numbers get high enough, the city may bring back mask mandates itself. Toddlers in the city still aren’t allowed to breathe freely. Parents are outraged but apparently helpless in the face of Mayor Eric Adams’ rules. The NY Post writes:
Even Dr. Anthony Fauci now says COVID’s “pandemic phase” is over. Here in the city, cases, hospitalizations and deaths are falling after a tiny recent uptick.
So it’s even more clearly than ever time to liberate the last group of New Yorkers still forced to wear masks: schoolchildren under 5.
That they have been forced to wear masks at all up to now is nothing short of monstrous. These kids have lowest COVID risk of all age groups. Of 991,000-plus US COVID deaths since the pandemic began, only 126 have been 1- to 4-year-olds, typically tots with significant comorbidities.
Nor have schools ever been significant vectors of transmission. Months of consistent data show this. Mayor Eric Adams himself has repeatedly admitted it’s true.
And there’s zero data to indicate that broad-scale mask mandates have done any good against COVID.
Masks also do real, and likely lasting, damage to little kids. The Post’s own reporting shows younger students across the city suffering from emotional and learning problems as a result of constant masking.
Now the Philadelphia school district is reimposing mask mandates on ALL students. Caroline Downey writes in National Review:
Masks will need to be worn in school facilities and while riding on public school transportation.
The decision to resume mandatory masking was made in response to a spike in Covid-19 cases in the region and per the recommendation of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH), superintendent William Hite said in a statement Friday.
Hite also reminded that positive Covid-19 tests must be reported to the school system. “As we’ve learned since the pandemic began, the coronavirus continues to evolve and so too will our response to it,” he said.
Is there still a parent out there who believes this is in the best interests of their children?
