Letter to the editor: Why is BOE not following the science?
Letter to the Editor generic


I’m writing in regards to the recent Bryan County B.O.E. policy requiring all students to wear masks in school.

Are they not aware that there have been 12 public trials done on masking?

Did you know that the unanimous results were that “There is no health benefit of public Masking.”

Have they not read Dr. Fauci’s email concerning masks from February 5, 2020?

Fauci wrote: “Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection. The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through material. It might, however, provide some slight benefit in keep out gross droplets if someone coughs or sneezes on you. I do not recommend that you wear a mask, particularly since you are going to a very low risk location. Your instincts are correct, money is best spent on medical countermeasures such as diagnostics and vaccines.”

The scientific data clearly says that masks are not really effective in keeping out virus! So why is Bryan County schools requiring our students to wear masks all day in school??

Why aren’t our policies following the science?
