Teachers and parents decry Salt Lake County's vote to overturn mask mandate

Source: Salt Lake Tribune

Hours after the Salt Lake County Council met to repeal its own health department’s mask order for elementary schools, parents, teachers unions, physicians and nurses gathered to share their disappointment.

“There’s a lot of anticipation, a lot of anxiety among faculty and support staff in our schools of what to expect,” Brad Asay, president of the Utah chapter of the American Federation of Teachers, said at a news conference outside the County Government Center. “And now, a tool has been taken away from them to be able to protect our students.”

Dr. Angela Dunn, director of the Salt Lake County Health Department, issued a mask order earlier this week for K-6 schoolchildren to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among students too young to get vaccinated.

After receiving thousands of emails and phone calls from county residents, as well as listening to hours of public comment from parents who supported Dunn’s order and from people who were tired of masking up their kids, the County Council held a special meeting Thursday afternoon. Along party lines, the council members voted 6-3 to strike down the mandate.

Buh bye Utah.

3. Oh, they're tired of masking up their kids, are they?

How many of them are going to get very tired of sleeping in a chair in a hospital room for several weeks?

4. Their a death cult

On some other issues, they pretend to be pro life. but then there are mass shootings every other week they turn a blind eye too.

I have never know the republican party to be so dangerous; they have dropped any pretences of all their old principles.

5. Kids in Asia do perfectly fine with masks

And you don't see them acting like snowflakes. Plus, they out-perform Americans in math skills. Maybe the masks make you smarter.
