FULL PIECE:

Ask Governor Ducey and Dr. Christ to " Unmask K-12 kids."  Make Masks Optional.   Contact AZ lawmakers to support this effort, too!

Background of AZ K-12 mask guidance:

Governor Ducey's Executive Order 2020-51 and Dr. Christ's AZ Dept of Health Svcs Order 2020-04 both call for K12 kids to be masked in school.

The original Opening AZ Schools Guidance stated once a county got to the lowest category ("green") that kids will be unmasked.  That guidance was quietly changed and now even if a county achieves ZERO covid cases, K-12 kids would still be masked.  (Another problem is it seems unlikely counties can achieve 0-9 cases/100k--the "green" status.)

We also know more about the spread of Covid and how it affects people.  Thankfully kids are largely spared severe physical effects of Covid. 

AZ businesses and AZ lawmakers are mask optional.  Kids deserve to be unmasked.

Spread of COVID

 

  • AZ K-12 teachers were prioritized to receive vaccines--they are protected from Covid
  • Kids are not super-spreaders
  • Kids are at lowest risk for adverse reactions to Covid
  • ZERO kids/young adults under 20 in Pima County have died from Covid.  In AZ, 28 people under 20 have died.  AZ doesn't provide covid data for children 0-17 years of age.
  • In AZ, anyone 16+ is eligible for vaccine. Millions of vaccine doses have been given.
  • High BMI (body mass index/obesity) advanced age 65+, and pre-existing conditions are what increase Covid risk
  • The efficacy of masks has never been established.  Masks are not PPE.  Efficacy for masks can't be proven especially when cases have risen/fallen in AZ at different times despite identical masking/mitigations.
  • Zero Covid is an unreasonable expectation given that other viruses have been present for decades.
  • Even with flu shots, flu has never been eradicated
  • Public Health has not recommended masking healthy people preCovid

 

Harm to children

  • AZ removed any pathway for K-12 kids to be unmasked even if a county has ZERO Covid cases
  • Kids are at greater risk of harm being driven to/from school than their risk from Covid
  • Many kids are in masks ALL day...even at recess and in after school in sports and activities
  • Flu harms/kills more kids than Covid YET we have never altered school and the lives of children with masking for flu
  • Kids are missing learning social cues:  90% of communication is non verbal.  Everyone's faces are 75% covered.
  • Young college women are saying they "hide" behind their masks and find comfort in avoiding young men who make unwelcoming comments 
  • Kids have lost special events, milestones, a lot of classroom time, and connecting with friends (Prom, Graduation, football games..)
  • Learning to read while masked is a challenge for our youngest learners
  • Masking special needs children limits learning
  • Not all children are able to express their fears and concerns about masks
  • Many schools in Europe have been open without masking students while their social distancing metric has been 3' the entire pandemic. For most of the past year, AZ kids have been masked and 6' social distanced IF/when their school opened.

 Ask AZ lawmakers to support this effort to encourage Governor Ducey and Dr. Christ to unmask K-12 kids and make masks optional

  Just GET your Kids OUT of the Government Indoctrination School Complex..

"Public School, Just Say No"

Agreed.  But school choice is what we really need.  Even if parents follow your advice, they will still be forced to pay taxes supporting public schools.  They should not have to fund those schools if their children do not go there.  All of us are actually paying taxes to support public schools.  This needs to be changed.

But a reasonable start would be school choice for parents of school-aged children.

Hello, Jose. My name is Valeri Marsh. I'm Executive Director of a grassroots organization called Arizonans for Safe Technology (AZ4SafeTech.org). We're fighting the 5G battle, as that technology is harmful to all living species, it erodes property values, and it enables 24/7 surveillance, data-harvesting, and tracing of law-abiding citizens. I'm about to call for an emergency statewide meeting of all freedom-loving organizations because we've recently learned of an egregious FCC ruling that will allow mini 5G cell towers to be clandestinely placed on the rooftops of private Arizona homeowners, and neighborhoods affected (and potentially surveilled) will have no recourse. We have a robust plan to fight this and educate many in the process. I can give more details if you'd like.  I'd like to speak with the director of the organization behind the UnMask K-12 kids thread you posted, and as I'm new to AZ Freedom Alliance, I'd also appreciate a chance to speak with you to learn more about this group. Any chance I could have a few minutes of your time to share my thoughts and hear yours (or if you can direct me to the persons who are running this group)? Thanks so much. Valeri I can be reached at AZ4SafeTech@gmail.com
