Children Wearing Masks At Summer Camps is Causing Controversy
It was just recently announced that summer camps and daycare programs can fully open, but must follow the mask mandate, while some parents can agree with wanting to keep children safe, most parents don't feel that it is realistic that 2 and 3-year old children are going to keep a mask on for a full day.
According to WGRZ, the pressure is mounting from parents to reverse New York State guidance that says children 2 years old and older in summer camps and daycare centers must wear masks. Here's the thing that is really bothering parents, most of these children are not eligible to get vaccinated.
Here Is What The Center For Disease Control And Prevention Say
Children ages 2 and up need to wear a mask unless they are doing things such as eating, drinking, swimming, or sleeping. This mask mandate was put in place for children and staff members who are not vaccinated.
This is a real sticky situation in my opinion because of course, you want to make sure your sending your child to a place where you know everyone is safe and following all the proper protocols, but honestly, who really think that a 2 or 3-year-old is gonna keep a mask on all day it's just not logical.
There is growing concern and agreement from members in Congress on both sides of the aisle, so I think that this should be an issue that could probably be reversed as long as it can be done safely for all children.
