Why Universal, Non-standardized Masking is Unnecessary/Harmful for Children
1. The Virus is not contained by non surgical/non-standard masks. Standard cloth and surgical masks offer next to no protection against virus-sized particles or small aerosols. The size of a virus particle is much too small to be stopped by a surgical mask, cloth, or bandana. (1)
2. Masking children is experimental. All parties mandating the use of facemasks are not only willfully ignoring established science but are engaging in what amounts to a whole school clinical experimental trial. This conclusion is reached by the fact that facemask use and COVID-19 incidence are being reported in scientific opinion pieces promoted by the CDC and others.i The fact is after reviewing ALL of the studies worldwide, the CDC found “no reduction in viral transmission with the use of face masks.” (2)
3. Children are not spreaders. Based on the data available, in-person learning in schools has not been associated with substantial community transmission. (4)
4. Children are not at great risk from the virus. It is well-accepted that children have a statistically zero chance of dying from COVID. The CDC shows the K-12 mortality rate from or with COVID is .00003. (4)
5. Children can be physically harmed by wearing a mask. JAMA study concluded that there was ample evidence for adverse effects of wearing masks and suggested that children should not be forced to wear face masks. (3)
6. Children can be physically harmed by wearing a mask – Again. The JAMA report follows a larger German survey of over 25,000 children, which found 68 percent of them reportedly had problems while wearing facial coverings. (8).
7. Adults can get vaccinated to protect themselves in schools. Schools are holding vaccination clinics and overall 56% of adults in Illinois are fully vaccinated. (5)
8. Parents concerned about COVID can decide to mask their children without requiring it of everyone else in the school.
9. Mask rules are arbitrarily enforced. Look around, the hypocrisy is everywhere. And even the CDC says the WHO is wrong about asking vaccinated people to mask – so even more arbitrariness. (6)
10. Dr. Fauci agrees that masks don’t necessarily work. Dr. Fauci, himself, on masks,” When you're in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet. But it's not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. (7)
11. Majority of States Make Masks Optional in Schools - including NY. (9)1
