Dr. Fauci has admitted ‘there’s no data that indicates that that is going to make a difference.’
A school district in Ohio wants students and staff to double up on facial coverings when in-person learning returns later this month.
As students return to campus, Bexley City Schools in Columbus will be handing out three-ply masks due to recommendations from the CDC claiming two masks are better than one.
“The Bexley City Schools Evaluation Team… discussed ‘compulsory double-making or CDC equivalent thereof,’ which was adopted by the Board of Education on Friday, February 19, as a component of the resolution regarding the learning mode (All-In Person Learning),” the school board wrote in an update to parents.
Included in the district’s press release are four options to comply with the new double mask mandate, including, “Wearing two cloth masks together, or wearing two disposable masks together.”
Children are also allowed to wear a “3-ply” disposable or cloth mask if they use a “mask fitter” to keep it in place, or a KN95 or N95 surgical mask, despite them being “challenging for children to wear.”
The district will have 3-ply masks on hand: “To ensure all students and staff have access to a mask meeting the quality standards required under this option, the District intends to purchase this type of mask for all.”
The school’s double mask order comes after NIAID Head Dr. Anthony Fauci has flip-flopped on the issue, at first telling people they shouldn’t wear masks, then telling people they should wear one or two masks, then claiming “there’s no data that indicates that that is going to make a difference.
Meanwhile, a results from a study conducted with a Japanese supercomputer showed there’s little benefit to wearing two masks.
