Miller Pushes to Remove Mask Mandate for Minors

A statement from Assemblyman Brian Miller (R,I,C-New Hartford)

Assemblyman Brian Miller (R,I,C-New Hartford) joined colleagues from the Assembly Minority for a press conference on Wednesday, June 9 to introduce legislation which would prohibit state agencies from requiring children under the age of 18 and asymptomatic, to wear masks.

“Our children have been through enough the past 18 months, it’s time we fight to regain some normalcy for them,” said Miller. “While school, where the mask mandate is most confusing right now, is soon ending, this legislation will also help those attending summer school, summer camp and other similar programs. Positivity rates are going down significantly and we are nearly at the 70 percent mark for vaccines in New York. It’s time to start returning to normal and end this abuse of our children.”
