Calls grow from legislators for Gov. Kathy Hochul to set path to end mask mandate in schools---The calls for rules in schools for masks comes when the Public Health and Health Planning Council recommended masks be used in schools and other public places. Gary Stern Rockland/Westchester Journal News
Calls are growing for Gov. Kathy Hochul to indicate what it will take for vaccinated students to be allowed to take off their masks inside schools.
State Assemblymember Amy Paulin penned a letter this week to Hochul, signed by 17 fellow Assemblymembers, calling for the state to set a threshold for when masks can be removed, saying that doing so will "incentivize vaccination, provide clarity to school districts, and help our children and communities."
Their letter noted research indicating that masks may disrupt children's interactions with their peers and their ability to form relationships with educators.https://www.lohud.com/story/news/education/2021/11/19/ny-lawmakers-kathy-hochul-set-path-end-school-mask-mandate/8682179002/
