AAP Says Kids Ages 2 And Up Need To Wear Masks In Schools

Halloween may be coming early this year. The American Academy of Pediatrics released a statement today recommending masks for any student above the age of two. Should your child’s school district heed the AAP’s advice, he or she will spend another school year falling behind socially and academically, yet still be at very low risk of contracting a serious illness.

The AAP’s statement recommends face coverings for all students and staff: “Everyone older than age 2 wear masks, regardless of vaccination status.”

Since many children are not eligible to receive vaccines and many parents do not want them to have it, the AAP is pushing the narrative that universal masking is necessary: “Because a significant portion of the student population is not yet eligible for vaccines, and masking is proven to reduce transmission of the virus and to protect those who are not vaccinated.”

The statement continued: “Many schools will not have a system to monitor vaccine status of students, teachers and staff, and some communities overall have low vaccination uptake where the virus may be circulating more prominently.”

In a rare showing of common sense, the AAP did push for all children to return to in-person learning:

Sonja O’Leary, chair of the AAP Council on School Health, acknowledged that in-person learning is a priority: “We need to prioritize getting children back into schools alongside their friends and their teachers — and we all play a role in making sure it happens safely. The pandemic has taken a heartbreaking toll on children, and it’s not just their education that has suffered but their mental, emotional and physical health. ”

  1. All in the AAP should be arrested for child abuse.

    This Is ridiculous, children have a 99.9999% chance of survival. We ought to apply the same type of science to punishing these child abusers, maybe blood letting or burn them at the stake.

    I will never listen to anything the AAP has to say.

  2. The field of medicine has done more to undermine its integrity with the public in the last 18 months over Covid than at any other time in history. They KNOW masks don’t do anything meaningful to stop transmission of covid. They KNOW it’s harmful for children to wear masks for 8 hours a day. They KNOW children are in virtually no danger whatsoever from covid and aren’t vectors who spread it. They have let politics sway science. How could doctors allow that to happen? It’s a shocking and blatant breach of trust with the public that is irreparable. That is a tragedy.

  3. Go look at the AAP website.. one of their top donors.. Pfizer.. Of course they are money over everything. They will push the masks until they can push the vaccine. Keep up the fear, drive up the profits. Curious to what Clay thinks about this? After all it is Capitalism. Haven’t listened to his show in a few weeks maybe he has already hit on it.

  4. That’s the truth. I’ve had a theory on why there has been so much blatant lying to the face of the public the last 5 years. It’s out of control. It’s because the godless think the political ends they seek justify the means of lying. They believe if it takes lying to get their agenda through, then it’s morally justified.

  5. As a middle school teacher, I am HORRIFIED by this. No word from my (Catholic) school yet on what the policy will be. I PRAY that neither child nor teacher/adult will be masked this year. I may lose my job if that’s not the case.

  6. Why does any medical institute still think they have any credibility to make unilateral decisions or offer unilateral advice at this point? They’ve yet to be right about literally anything at all for 18 months straight. And they provide zero evidence or “proof” to back up anything they say. It’s nonsense.
