Reply To: End School Mask Mandate (and unmask the poor kids outside!)



I think you’re projecting your politics onto kids. While I agree that outdoor masking is not necessary in many circumstances, it doesn’t appear that kids regard it as the onerous burden that you do. Play often involves fairly personal contact that is quite different from ordinary distanced walking, and most kids are not yet vaccinated. I see kids walking around my neighborhood fully masked all the time. They seem to embrace it, and it appears compliance is higher among kids than adults. Is it so terrible that we have an up-and-coming generation that takes responsibility for others seriously? Sounds like a lot of adults could learn from them.
