Dr. Walensky's recommendation is one more example of Covid authoritarians' refusal to "listen to the science." The science says no to lockdowns and masks. The masks are not blocking the very small viruses in "heavy breathing." Dr. Walensky also ignores the science showing that wearing a mask while exercising or playing sports has negative health effects.
Dr. Walensky's most outrageous disregard of science is ignoring the fact that children are statistically unlikely to be at risk of either spreading Covid or becoming very sick from it.
Dr. Walensky's recommendation is one of many examples of how children are harmed by the overreaction to coronavirus. Many children have had their physical and mental health damaged because they cannot go to school, play with their friends, or even have a birthday party because of the lockdowns.
