Morinello: Unmask Our Children

Assemblyman Angelo Morinello (R,C,I-Niagara Falls) joined his colleagues in the Assembly Minority Conference to introduce a bill that would prohibit a mask mandate by state agencies for children in educational settings like schools and camps. It would apply to all New Yorkers under 18 years old who are healthy and asymptomatic.

“The constantly-changing mask guidelines have created enormous confusion for our parents, kids and teachers,” said Morinello. “Our teachers have endured so much this school year to foster the best learning environment for our students. We should entrust our individual school districts to make the best decisions for their students. As the summer approaches, and temperatures and vaccination rates continue to rise while positivity rates and hospitalizations go down, it’s time we unmask our kids.”
