Lewis and Clark Middle School in Jefferson City returns to in-person classes after Thanksgiving break.

More school districts in Mid-Missouri are making masks optional as coronavirus cases go down and vaccinations go up.

The Jefferson City School District said Thursday that it will end its mask requirements for the final two weeks of summer school starting June 21. JC Schools joins most of the other districts in the area in dropping the mandate.

Students below the middle school level are still too young to get the coronavirus vaccine, though.

  1. There never was any reason for students to wear masks. It was determined months ago, and verified by Fauci himself that children are not a significant transmission vector. Largely because most of them display very mild, or no symptoms, and so have no infectious discharge, coughing or sneezing.
    For the same reason, there is no reason for a healthy person to wear one. If you aren’t sick you can’t make anyone else sick. The mask has become a weapon of tyranny, with no justification for its use. There is abundant evidence that NONE of the restrictions have had any effect at all on transmission. If there is a significant difference between outcomes in States that imposed them and those who lifted them, it favors those who lifted them. Freedom always produces better results than tyranny.
