CDC (and New York) COVID madness continues

At first, the CDC’s new mask guidance seemed to be a major, if belated, element of the recognition that mask quests don’t make sense, especially in schools. Guess again: Agency is still Hold on to its craziest form of COVID alarm.

Despite recommending that more than 70% of people in the United States can go indoors without a mask under the new “community-level” index, and schools as other indoor spaces, CDC still According to its Web site, guidance on early childhood education (or ECE) programs has not been updated.

There, “common indoor masks” are for “people 2 years of age and older, regardless of vaccination status“Still recommended – and New York is still following this ridiculous advice.

Total dementia: Of the roughly 20 million children in the US ages 1 to 4, only 99 have died from COVID since the pandemic began. That’s out of about 934,000 deaths.

This is the group at least So far, there is risk from bad COVID outcomes. It’s also a group most of There is a risk of adverse side effects of constantly wearing a mask while studying – especially for those with special needs.

CDC admit In this regard, it is recommended that ECE programs “consider having staff wear masks or cloth face coverings with clear signs when interacting with young children” or “children learning to read” to “facilitate learning and social and emotional development.”

However, it left this merciless rule free, freeing everyone except the group almost Nothing Fear of COVID.

And this federal madness goes to the state level. Governor Kathy Hochul lifted the state’s school mask mandate as of Wednesday – except for her did not.

Her office confirmed to The Post that individual schools in New York can still require masks. That means the duty ends only for those schools that aren’t in charge of the COVID alert staff.

The mayor’s office is still finalizing plans for end-of-school mask wearing, but tells us it will adhere to CDC recommendations because children under 5 cannot be vaxxed.

The CDC’s refusal to update this guidance further harms the most vulnerable young practitioners. The Hochul Policy gives those most worried about COVID a veto that could harm thousands of others.

The many years of restriction madness that have caused damage will outlast the actual pandemic, and it’s still happening. Let this be a warning the next time public health officials go overboard trying to tailor their way out of the crisis.
