Oh, people found a loophole in the Wolf’s Mask government’s mandate
Fall is only a few weeks away and school is underway. A few months ago, we all thought this semester would be like the good old days. Remember those days?
The day you could go to school without worrying about catching a deadly virus from the girl in your bedroom. The days when you could hold your partner’s hand in the hallways without even having to think about social distancing. The days when you didn’t have to pay attention to cafeteria food because you didn’t know which hands touched it. Or the days when you could laugh and play hacky sack with your brothers without having to wear a mask. These days.
Well, it’s 2021 and times have changed. Honestly, I don’t think we’ll ever get back to the good old days. The new peak in coronavirus cases has forced the government to implement new COVID guidelines and rules, especially in schools.
Governor Tom Wolf has made a statewide mandate for all students, institutions and staff to wear masks in schools in Pennsylvania. The majority of people are not at all happy with this.
But like all rules, a loophole has been found. And parents are using it to their advantage. According to Patch, the only way a student won’t have to wear a mask in class is if they have a doctor’s note proving they have a medical condition. Well, it was discovered that some schools in the state say that children should not wear masks only if their parents write a note on the principle, according to Patch. So, as long as they have parental consent, a letter from a healthcare professional doesn’t matter.
Fortunately, the Pennsylvania Department of Health has been notified and has created random pop-ups at schools across the state to ensure that my wolf’s mandate is being met by the T.
It is sad that the world thinks the government wants to have us just because it is taking extreme measures to keep us healthy. Just put a mask on your kids so they can continue to learn and become the people they were meant to be. The image may not look like what we are used to … but it is our reality now.
