The Newport-Mesa Unified School District Board of Directors vetoed a resolution on September 14 that would violate California’s mask regulations for K-12 schools.
The resolution was proposed by Chris Jones, the mother of three children studying at Newport-Mesa School as part of the Let Them Breathe movement, a national organization that advocates for K-12 students to choose masks.
Jones said: “Wearing masks is not only a parent in this community, but also a growing concern across the country.”
“It is not our children’s responsibility to create comfort for others. It is our responsibility to stand up and ensure that our children are protected.”
In the end, even if Karen Yelsey, chairman of the board of directors, provided the opportunity, no board member did not propose a motion on the project, which resulted in the resolution not being passed.
Board trustee Krista Weigand told Jones that she appreciates her efforts but cannot support the measure because it may interfere with face-to-face learning.
“As a parent, I don’t like wearing a mask,” she said. “I don’t want my children to wear masks. But I do have a job to educate our children. And I think our entire board here has a plan to keep our children in school throughout the year.”
“I just can’t [support the item] Because before the start of school, we did receive a notice from the California Department of Public Health to all school leaders, and… it did point out [masking] It can be enforced by law. Sitting here as a board of directors, we may be fined by local health officials or civil enforcement actions for refusing to comply with mandatory masking instructions,” she said.
Weigand pointed out that her child “not learned much” through distance learning last year, and if an epidemic breaks out in the area, she does not want to risk repeating the same mistakes.
Jones believes that wearing masks for young children can cause various health problems, and pointed out that there are also problematic scientific basis behind the effectiveness of preventing COVID-19.
“For more than 18 months, we have been dealing with suspicious and conflicting suggestions about masking. In the 2020 email obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, Dr. Fauci stated that the typical masks you buy in pharmacies are not It is really effective to stop the virus, because the virus is small enough to pass through the material,” Jones said.
“Furthermore, the Executive Director of the World Health Organization’s Emergency Plan stated on March 30, 2020 that there is no specific evidence that there are any special benefits for the general public to wear masks.”
Jones also mentioned a study in Gainesville, Florida on June 16, 2021, which showed that masks worn for a short period of time were found to contain harmful bacteria, parasites and fungi, but there was no SARS-COV-2 virus on them. .
“Wearing a mask has been shown to have serious adverse effects on the physiology and psychology. These include reduced oxygen in the blood, excessive carbon dioxide in the blood, shortness of breath, increased acidity and toxicity, activation of fear and stress responses, [and more],” Jones pointed out. “The long-term consequences of wearing a mask can lead to health deterioration, the development and development of chronic diseases, and premature death. “
