Calls for Renewed Mask Mandates Grow as Delta Fuels COVID Surge in NYC, U.S.
Vaccines work, officials say, but the rapid spread of the delta COVID variant in areas with low vaccination rates has renewed national concerns.
People with literal degrees in knowing how to protect children's health: Put a mask on your kids, it's easy and decreases the chance of them being hospitalized or killed
Rando on Twitter logging in from his neighbor's wifi: 🐑
Do the people who make these recommendations leave their homes??? No one is masking any more.
This is correct. Nobody should have stopped wearing masks in the first place. I’ve been full vaxxed for months, and have continued to wear mine. It’s really such a small ask to protect people, and it’s interesting how “pro-life” folks seem to have a hard time protecting life 🤷♂️
Serious question- if the vaccine doesn’t set me apart from unvaccinated what was the point of getting vaccinated?
My 3 year old grandson wears his mask at his pre-school without a problem. Got used to it. Seems little ones have an easier time with it than adults.
Kids are not at risk from this virus!!! Flu does more damage to kids than covid and we didn't do shit for that
YOU BETTER NOT REINSTATE MASK MANDATES IN SCHOOLS! IGNORE THESE CHILD ABUSERS
I wear a mask daily. My mask identifies as the invisible man therefore you can’t see it but I promise it’s there.
Pink eye has a near 100 percent survival rate. However, many of these same anti-mask parents would be outraged if kids with pink eye were allowed to attend school simply because their parents screamed "FREEDOM!"
Hmm, Pfizer throws big money at the AAP. Of course they’d recommend keeping kids masked and afraid. Disgusting. https://t.co/GWeCkADNFQ
Except in Arizona, where our governor, the ice cream salesman, has forbidden masks in schools
Not happening in logical school districts. 'Optional' is the way to go.
My niece wears a mask at school without a problem which means everyone in here complaining is less mature than a freaking 8 year old. Congratulations.
Is this the same American Academy of Pediatrics that about 1-2 years ago, recommend not putting gender on a child’s birth certificate- because “feelings” (or something )?
They also suggest sunscreen from Johnson and Johnson and look where that brought us to 😂👌
I make my 3 year old wear 2 or 3, depending on how much of his vegetables he finishes.
and I thought people here in the UK we’re taking things too far… This is absolutely asinine
The chance of a child dying from Covid if they have no serious underlying condition is literally 1 in 2 million.
The point of masking kids was so they couldn't bring the virus home. Now that teachers parents and extended family can get vaccinated, this threat should not be a big deal anymore. If kids are having their educations ruined, individual families should be held accountable.
I am 100% behind this idea and absolutely cannot wait to get my kids vaccinated because I'm terrified of them getting COVID, but my daughter starts pre-school in September at age 3 and there is just absolutely no way whatsoever to get her to wear a mask.
This societal and emotional crippling of children, using the virus and its billions making #vaccines as an excuse, is a true crime against humanity. #Nuremberg2 should be their destination, while I started to suspect they'd prefer Shanghai.
The same ones who said the vaccines are ticket to freedom. The parents need to stay away from doctors who are members of this organization
This is insanity. The party of science conveniently ignoring all of it. Strange
Masks have proven to not be effective in preventing spread. More covid theatre from fear mongering institutions
Yeah, and they also recommend less than 2 hours of screen time for children, but look where the last year brought us. Bleary eyed kids thoroughly addicted to technology. This is a recommendation and should be optional, as is all of our other parenting decisions.
Not in Tennessee. Bill Lee has passed a law that no children have to be vaccinated for anything. Let that sink in.
Sorry. I'll follow the actual science. I remember when Drs actually did that too.
The masks won’t unfortunately prevent them from being infected with government indoctrinations.
No serious person believes this will be an overall benefit to kids. Kids are rarely, very very rarely, impacted by COVID..
And the WHO says to not mask kids under 12. Which one is "misinformation"??
Dear American Academy of Pediatrics,
Sincerely, reasonable human beings.
I'm just here for the nuanced and respected comments from everyone.
These health guidelines give no credit to personal choice and undermines individual liberties to let families make their own choice to protect themselves. Instead the mantra is said that it is “for the greater good of the community”, which is not freedom.
We should all live in bubbles until the end of time. Maskers, that’s where your logic ends up.
When does it stop? Covid will never disappear. There has to be a stop to it. Glad I live and work in Texas.
Children 17 and under account for .05% of Covid deaths. That’s five one-hundredths of one percent. Leave the children alone.
Wait, so now we're not supposed to listen to the CDC, we're supposed to listen to the American Academy of Pediatrics? I like how the Left just jump back and forth between "reputable" authorities.
Stupidest thing I've read online today. Nobody should be forced to wear a mask.
Germany, Sweden, UK, etc…plus CDC and WHO disagree with this. WHO even states nobody under 12 should ever wear a mask. This is insane.
This has teachers Union stink all over it. The rates of contraction and transmission in children is statistically zero. It’s utterly unscientific nonsense to force children to wear masks.
That is a gross violation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (Article 3).
They are not following the data regarding masks or Covid risks to young people. Control freaks.
Imagine thinking breathing in CO2 and bacteria for 8 hours is healthy. Can't wait to see what these kids come down with In 10 years!
My grand daughter is 5 now and she has been masking since the age of two. Does that make her a mashonista? https://t.co/m144yF1ITy
That’s not going to work. Young ones will take the masks off because kids are kids. Then there’s the autistic children who have sensory issues & cannot handle the masks. They need to develop a vaccine shot for the children, mandatory like all the other shots they get for school.
Masks will apparently save your life and others, vaccinated or not. Nobody, including the CDC, have any clue what they’re doing.
Have they even considered the long-term effects on the immune systems of these kids from not being exposed to common viruses and germs? When we stop these preventative measures, which we will have to do eventually, these kids will all be functionally immunosuppressed.
Fuck all the anti-vaxxers. They did this. (I hope in areas where there are high vaccination rates, this won't be necessary. Although, areas with high vaccination rates also take masking seriously, so, there's that too . . .)
So vaccines don’t work? I guess it’s clear, do NOT get vaccinated! It literally doesn’t matter if you do
No. I'm fully vaccinated. I wore a mask dutifully while it was previously mandated. I'm not putting one on again because some bureaucratic agency is being retarded.
This isn't about safety. It's about control.
