Masks in September; The CDC’s Cruel, Irrational Guidance Traps Our Kids in the Forever Pandemic, and other C-Virus Updates

Masks in September:
Israel, deep into its process of vaccinating the population, is seeing COVID-19 levels drop to next to nothing. Remarkably, the most populous county in the U.S. reported zero new COVID deaths yesterday. It is time to celebrate that the pandemic is really coming to a close where the vaccines are widely available. Many counties in the United States have vaccinated more than 70 percent of residents over 65 years of age.
And yet, here in the Northeast of the United States, one hears “word” circulating, from school districts and administrators, that children — even young children — will continue to be masked in September and that districts are planning to mask at least until there is no evidence of a winter surge. This flies in the face of what we know about COVID transmission, and of what other countries have experienced. It also just strikes me as backwards, and as a recipe for having yet another full school year in masks and deferring the question to September 2022. --->READ MORE HERE

The CDC’s cruel, irrational guidance traps our kids in the forever pandemic:
While much of grown-up America moves on, our children are trapped in the forever pandemic.
Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a fresh set of guidelines for summer camps. Like much of the CDC’s guidance, this latest was a bunch of irrational nonsense. (Yes, “experts” can be guilty of that.)
The camp guidance — clearly written by someone who has never attended summer camp and isn’t even mildly aware of what goes on there — suggests kids be separated by 3 feet at all times, and 6 feet when they’re eating.
The CDC maintains that vaccinated adults who work at these camps should continue to be masked — and, of course, kids should wear masks, too.
The people making these absurd calls will be sitting in air-conditioned offices, while your children and their underpaid counselor will be needlessly sweating under their masks playing color war in 90-degree weather. Don’t listen to them.
Also last week, the CDC finally released updated guidance for vaccinated people. The chart showed that vaccinated people — except, apparently, summer camp counselors — can now dine outdoors and gather mask-less in small groups outside. --->READ MORE HERE
