If schools are opening again, everybody should be masked EVERYWHERE – for safety

Last Updated: August 25, 2020By Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

A face mask: your youngsters will probably look better in theirs than this image – kids can be very creative – so why not let them stay safe by letting them wear their masks all the time they’re at school?

Is everybody totally confused now, about Covid-19 rules when the schools open again in September?

I am.

Apparently Boris Johnson has u-turned on a previous decision and decided that, in England,

staff and pupils in secondary schools in local lockdown areas like Manchester and Birmingham will be required to wear face coverings when moving around the building and in communal areas where social distancing is difficult to maintain. Masks will not be mandated in the classroom.


masks will not be obligatory but school leaders will have the discretion to require face coverings in communal areas if they believe that is “right in their particular circumstances”.

So he’ll be able to blame head teachers if outbreaks occur.

There is only one sane choice for head teachers who are given it: Masks everywhere.

I wrote back in March, “Children are brilliant at spreading disease. I remember a trip to Lyme Regis, back when I was at junior school; one girl on the coach had chicken pox and was found to have it very soon – but by the end of the week we all had it and one of the teachers spent the following term extremely ill with it.”

If that happens with Covid-19, it could be fatal.

I am supported in my believe by this:

That’s an Oxford professor, expert in infections, by the way.

Finally, there’s the fact that adults are far more likely to suffer the worst effects of Covid-19 than children – and for single parents that could be disastrous:

The plan at the moment is to punish parents who believe the best protection for their children is to keep them away from school.

It doesn’t matter whether Johnson is deliberately trying to cause trouble to them or simply doesn’t have the intelligence to realise that people will be hurt because he hasn’t provided for them.

The result will be the same.

    Masks are all well and good for those who can wear them, but not everyone can do so. I tried wearing a mask at work; in no more than half an hour the mask was so damp that I couldn’t breathe and had to take it off or pass out. Not going there again, thanks very much. Pushing hard on masks is just going to give cowardly bullies – and jobsworth idiots – another reason to pick on others.

      Dan, I am in the risk group it’s great that you are unique that you alone can’t ever catch this deadly virus and be a invisible spreader that on average passes it on to 20 people before discovery your infected.

      That 20 people who now have it because people don’t care I am sure all will survive and won’t be left with scarred lungs and other health issues for life! If not death. But as long as your not inconvenienced.

      Last time I was in hospital it’s strange, I wore a mask for 8 hours and it was fine strange that isn’t it?

      But carry on as I am one of these awful bullies that think others should be allowed to have a chance of life, but you carry on because what you’re saying is you’re not responsible and don’t care about others nice attitude!
