INSANITY: Schools Bring Back Mandatory Masking to Stop Virus Outbreaks

Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. And, if one were to put a photo of a Purel-doused, double-masked COVID hysteric next to that definition as an example of such utter stupidity, they wouldn’t be wrong.

What can only be described as total insanity can be seen in some school districts across the country (primarily in blue locales) that have decided once again to slap filthy, germ-ridden rags on children’s faces to “protect” against COVID, other viruses, and general communicable illness. Which are cropping up in unprecedented droves in part because so many children spent nearly two years masked up and stuck at home, likely leaving their immune systems with all the knock-out power of Barack Obama trying to throw a baseball.

And which, ironically, didn't ultimately keep children - or their family members, or their teachers, or anyone else - from eventually catching COVID anyway.

In fact, one study conducted last year observed people who wore masks for 6 hours or more and compared them to those who did not, ultimately (and unsurprisingly) concluding that "Wearing masks for long periods alters immunological parameters that initiate the immune response, making the body weaker in its resistance to infectious agents."

Not to mention the negative effects that not being able to see people's faces has on children with speech delays, hearing impediments, or a host of otherwise surmountable obstacles - and that's to say nothing of the simple ability to breathe.

But, unable to see that the very preventive measure they keep returning to is part of the same knee-jerk overreaction that landed everyone in this mess in the first place, ABC News notes that Paterson Public Schools and the Camden City School District, both in New Jersey, have brought back mandatory universal masking for staff and their combined 30,000-plus students for at least the next two weeks.

“No matter what your position may be, I ask for your cooperation,” Eileen Shafer, Paterson school district superintendent, wrote in a letter to students’ families. “Please continue to maintain universal masking throughout our buildings and we encourage you to take all other precautions against the spread of the COVID-19, RSV, flu virus including frequent hand washing, avoiding large gatherings, and staying home when sick."

Likewise, the School District of Philadelphia is requiring all kids and faculty to mask up for the first 10 days after retuning from their holiday break. 

But hey, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again - the same way, using the same faulty methods.
