Jensen: Mask Mandate for Children Is Absurd

A statement from Assemblyman Josh Jensen (R,C,I-Greece)

“The new mask mandate for kids over 2 years old just isn’t feasible. Over the weekend, I received multiple calls from concerned parents and childcare providers who are in a nightmare trying to figure out how to implement this outrageous policy.

“Adults have difficulty wearing masks for eight hours a day, how can we expect toddlers to keep them on all day long? As our state continues to take steps to move forward, we shouldn’t be implementing new, odious policies on our children.”
