(San Mateo, CA) – As many Americans move on from the Covid-19 epidemic, some are even more eager to enter the 2nd year of the ‘Fifteen Days to Reduce Expansion’! San Mateo Union High School District School Board in California Unanimously The 5-0 unanimous vote last Thursday agreed to continue the policy of putting masks on schoolgirls. The news comes after the California Department of Public Health, which issued most of the guidelines for state policies regarding stricter Covid-19 restrictions in schools, updated its guidelines and no longer recommended the school’s mask mandate.
The board meeting, which determined the continuation of the mandatory masks, surprisingly began with District Super Kevin Scaly advising that the Covid-19 epidemic was dying.
“We’re entering a less dangerous phase of the epidemic, sometimes when Covid-19 becomes localized or there are other phrases like that,” Scully said.
Scaley also shared a presentation slide and claimed that the current Covid-19 dataset shows a 1.72% positivity rate in San Mateo County. He explained several times that the metrics would now be based on hospital admissions rates rather than cases (which were reported at a very low rate of just over 1%) but did not share statistics on what those hospital admissions rates were.
It was then reported that the California Department of Public Health stated that after March 11, 2022, masks will no longer be mandatory on children at the statewide level. The department has updated their language to say that masks will now be “strongly recommended” instead of necessary, considering them no longer mandatory.
The school superintendent said he initially believed 98 percent of students would wear masks if not forced to do so, but said he later became “less optimistic.” He emphasized that while he believed that everyone should wear a mask, it was his view that the time for emphasizing it was over. Additional recommendations tell others to “respect personal preferences” and “not to harass any masks.”
Scully stressed that the most important reason, in his view, was to follow the district’s new guidelines, which considered masking to be “strongly recommended” and thus now opted that “the district has followed the CDPH and county recommendations throughout the epidemic and should continue to do so.” That’s right. “
“These are scientists, these are the people who make their living,” Scaley opined.
“We have to believe in a government that makes decisions based on our common good and that’s their decision, um, and that’s their recommendation.”
Several people called the board meeting, including a parent who argued that there was no scientific study showing the benefits of wearing masks on children, as well as a student who said students were “done with the whole mask thing.”
Peter Hanley, president of the board of trustees, called for a wildcard at the meeting, suddenly sharing a long-form email (presented in the form of a word document) with all his fellow board members, and even his position to strongly oppose the superintendent.
“Contrary to the superintendent’s claim that continuing the order would be contrary to state and national guidelines or science, these measures have always allowed local authorities to impose strict regulations from day one – Santa Clara and Sonoma counties have done so – to protect citizens.” The whole Gulf region did that at the beginning of the epidemic, “said David Cook, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau. Read Handley’s email.
Negotiations have been confirmed from there, only the instructions of one board member should be omitted. Board member Linda Lis Dwyer disagreed; He argued that they should still force children to cover their faces because “it will put extra pressure on students because those who wear masks will feel different from those who are not, you can never control the harassment with someone who is out … “
He then explained that in his view the students had already coped with considerable stress for about 2 years, and thus they should be forced to wear masks for a little longer.
“The students have passed enough in the last two years and I don’t want to put such pressure on them right now,” he said. Dwyer then admitted that most students would probably not wear masks during the spring break, sarcastically saying “they will have some freedom, which I think is really healthy for them.”
The board soon went to a vote, unanimously voting to continue the mandatory masking until the next board meeting, which is held a month later on April 21st. Robert Griffin, a board member who opposed the continued strength and desire to end the exercise during the meeting, was seen to change his position by joining the unanimous vote.
