NYC Students Under Five Will Still Have to Wear a Mask in School

NYC Students Under Five Will Still Have to Wear a Mask in School

A City Hall official admitted that even if the city gets rid of the school mask mandate the youngest kids will still have to wear one since they can’t get vaccinated.

The insanity will never end, especially in Democratic states and cities.

The Gothamist reported that a New York City Hall Official confirmed students under the age of five will still need to wear a mask at school.

Children five and under cannot receive a COVID vaccine.

NYC Mayor Eric Adams will decide to lift the mandate on Friday. If he chooses to do so then it will go into effect on Monday:

New York City students who are under the age of five will need to continue wearing masks in class, even if the school mask mandate is lifted by Mayor Eric Adams next week, as those kids are not currently eligible for COVID vaccines, a City Hall official said Thursday.

The Department of Education will continue to offer masks on campuses for students, teachers and staff, said Amaris Cockfield, a spokesperson for the mayor. It was not immediately clear if unvaccinated students over the age of five will be required to wear masks at school.

Comptroller Brad Lander and Public Advocate Jumaane Williams asked City Hall to require the COVID vaccine next year and offer students opt-in masked classes:

“It makes pretty clear sense that for next fall, COVID vaccination should be required, just like meningitis vaccination is required,” Lander told Gothamist. “If we knew that now, that would help us have confidence vaccination rates will go up in places where they’re really low, and we would be taking the steps necessary to keep people safe.”

Williams said “all the science says that it’s beneficial, that it is helpful,” and added there would be the same medical exemptions as available for other required vaccinations.

“We want to make sure that there are legitimate exemption options, but I think it should be treated like any other vaccination that is already mandated,” Williams told Gothamist.

Well, I hope they demand the city require flu shots in schools, too.

My friend has the perfect response.

The difference is that the meningitis vaccine actually helps prevent meningitis from spreading. The Wuhan vaccine doesn’t do that.

Suppose the child identifies as being 7?

Just received this from my Rep., Paul Gosar.
The portion about Pelosi is… interesting.

Washington, DC – Congressman Paul A. Gosar (D.D.S.) issued the following statement after the United States Senate’s passage of companion legislation to House Joint Resolution 46, introduced by Congressman Gosar, that would terminate the COVID-19 national emergency declaration and emergency presidential powers.

“All across America mask mandates are being lifted and normal life is beginning to return. Yet, Mr. Biden recently extended the COVID-19 national emergency for another year despite painting an optimistic portrait of life for Americans after COVID-19 during his recent State of the Union address. The extraordinary powers given to Mr. Biden to deal with the pandemic are no longer justified.

Twice I have moved to terminate the national emergency and both times Nancy Pelosi changed the rules of the entire House to prevent this from happening. I am very pleased that today the Senate passed a companion to my resolution and I look forward to filing a discharge petition early next week to bring my resolution to the House floor for consideration.

Under the current COVID-19 national emergency declaration, more than 120 emergency statutory powers can be invoked by Mr. Biden, including the power to draft Americans without consent, raising Dr. Fauci’s salary, further barricading the United States Capitol, and placing the Public Health Service under military control,” concluded Congressman Gosar.

We’re the Party of Science™ the Dims screech as they jump up and down stomping their feet!

What a bunch of morons. Forcing obedience diapers on the faces of the absolutely LEAST vulnerable group.

Have they not seen the devastating data regarding standardized testing of young school kids over the past couple of years? Reading comprehension has cratered. I wonder why?

Indoctrinate those kids early and they will become Leftists for certain

    Jury’s out on that. Piss them off enough and they will rebel when they get older. And most kids gets pissed off enough about something to do a 180° from their parents on one or more issues.

      Or, they don’t get “pissed off” as much as discovering the real world. I grew up in the stanch rock ribbed Democrat household. Yet by the time I was 25 I was aiming toward Libertarianism, and then eventually settled into the right of Centerview point that I have today. I am not in any political party, nor will I be. I don’t think they should even exist in the first place.

Does anyone remember why Ernst Junger wrote why people were forced to wear face masks in his 1932 novel ‘ The Worker ‘ ?

Loser public school teachers scared to death of dying from infections from perceived little children disease vectors can pound sand. Grow a pair and get on with life.

    Or quit. They are replaceable, hopefully with people wise enough to opt out of the Indoctrination Directorate aka teachers union.

They just can’t give up abusing children, can they?

It seems like this is really about creating a 100% vaccinated population. In such a population it is impossible to determine if big spikes in heart disease, autoimmune disease, and so forth are caused by the vaccines because the control group has been eliminated.

Keep the kiddo’s home, homeschool them without the concern of indoctrination or moronic school board fear-mongering. Cut the district off at the knees. Then figure a way to stop paying school taxes.

This is the one group who are the most sheltered within their family and least exposed to external environments. These actions to mask this age group is criminal and straight out of a chapter of the Holocaust where children were used for experimental trials and is just cruel. These are just babies who are having the window closed on the the most promising time of learning. .
