Gov. Gavin Newsom to lift mask requirement for schools on March 12

February 28, 2022


The state of California announced Monday it will no longer require children to wear masks at schools, effective March 12.

Also effective March 12, the state is lifting the mask requirement for childcare settings. Additionally, starting Tuesday, California will no longer require unvaccinated individuals to wear masks in indoor public settings.

State officials still recommend that everyone wear masks in indoor public places, and they will still require them in certain high-risk settings.

Despite the relaxing of rules by the state, local school districts will have say as to when to lift mask requirements. Paso Robles Unified School District board voted last week to defy Gov. Gavin Newsom’s mask mandate for schools, and to allow students to decide if they want to wear a mask at school.

Templeton Unified School District is holding a special meeting on March 1 to discuss weather to end the mask mandate immediately or wait until March 12.

I’m curious if medical journals and history books of the future will reflect back to clearly show that the most effective treatment for Covid, ultimately the final cure, would be mid-term elections.

Future generations will laugh at us….

Hopefully future generations will also see it as a warning as to what extend the government will go to take away people’s freedoms.

Mask wearing, the modern version of “duck and cover”

Why March 12th? Why not today? Kids are running all over town with no masks, but they need one at school for 11 more days?

Wow very decent that Newsome would lift the mask mandates for kids , especially after he lifted the mandates for himself and elitist rich friends months ago. Tired of lying hypocrites.

Who would’ve thought that discussing weather would get rid of the mask mandates?!?
