I would like to hear opinions on why schools would require masks at school but go any indoor school sporting event and it’s packed with kids and spectators with no masks. Even school dances hardly require them. Then schools wonder why so many are out sick. I cannot find the rational. I am for masks ( sped teacher whose kids cannot wear them correctly).

Masks work if you wear the correct mask, which most students don’t. I wear mine to protect myself. All the students take them off as soon as they get outside nd then are just in each other’s faces. Our administration keeps telling us we are in a “low risk environment” like going to the grocery store. That is not what my doctor thinks and he strongly recommended the booster because of my working conditions. I am so frustrated and sick of it all!

Remember not everyone is low risk. Patients with asthma or other conditions are at higher risk. I think my doctor knows what he is talking about.

As an educator I can see the debate has merits on both sides. My point is we should be less hysterical and more logical on the subject. Recognize there are people who manipulate truths during crisis’ to make money through panic anxiety and fear. If a masks makes you feel like you are doing your part please wear your mask. If a mask is not something you are inclined to do, don’t wear one. Just please don’t use your POV to bludgeon someone who has a different one. At least as long as we have open borders and corruption of current magnitude in control of the information flow.

I can't explain it. Nor can I explain why adults in general are cautioned to stay 6 feet apart, but 3 feet is fine for kids in school. Very little makes sense these days. I just do the best I can. And pray. I pray a lot.

likehelpfulsmartfunny

The 6-foot rule was based off the (very false) assumptions that covid was passed by water droplets. Now that we know that it aerosolized, 6 feet of social distancing is pointless. Once it's in the air, it goes all over the room. How good the ventilation is makes a much bigger difference than how far apart you are.

If masks were ineffective, then why do surgeons where them after it was discovered that the mask prevents disease and infection….

likefunny

Surgical masks are meant to protect the wearer from blood/fluids. They don't really do much for airborne particles.

And just 400 per 100k with a low mortality rate. I wouldn't call that emergency measures worthy.

It’s like every other school policy. If you try to make sense of it, you will slowly go insane. We have a mask mandate, but kids are still playing contact sports without masks as if Covid is a sports fan who is ignoring the wrestling team. 😂

Our district is consistent with it (masks required for anything indoors on campus). But yeah, if they're requiring them sometimes and not others, that doesn't make much sense. Pick a lane and go with it.

Great question! Masks obviously slow the spread, not stop it, but slows it. In August, our small district was reporting 50+ positive cases a week. Masks weren't required. Our superintendent ended up mandating masks at all events, only allowing kids to eat in their classroom, and only allowing kids to play with their class @ recess, and the numbers dropped to 1, 2, or no cases in a week through Dec. Since coming back from Christmas, because our numbers were so low, masking was optional again. Currently...50+ cases a week, and a staff shortage from illness. I wish the mitigation would come back even if only for a month.
