    Parents around the country are reporting instances of “mask mouth” — including staph infections and tooth decay — among their children due to forced masking, Moms for America president and founder Kimberly Fletcher told Breitbart News during an exclusive interview at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida. When asked about the issues that parents are most concerned about, Fletcher pointed to comprehensive sex education, intimidation and bullying from administrators to teachers and children, and mask mandates in schools. “We get stories from moms all over the country who are telling us that their children — ‘mask mouth’ is a thing now where children are getting staph infections around their mouths and they’re having tooth decay,” she said. “There are teachers who are literally taping masks to children’s faces. They’re putting them in isolation because they’re not wearing a mask. It’s absolutely absurd what’s happening,” Fletcher continued. Over the course of the last year, she continued, she has heard people say, “What’s the big deal? Just put on the mask.” “And I keep telling them it’s not about...
    Speaking to Fox News Digital from her home in New Jersey, a mom of a 3-year-old boy who has developmental speech delays said of the mask mandates that still exist in her state as of right now, "For speech therapy for a toddler, masking isn't exactly what you should be doing, at least in my opinion. It's against what you're trying to accomplish." She said, "It's like if a dentist required the patient to wear a mask, right? I think for speech therapy for a child, it's the same thing." The mom did not want her family's name used due to privacy concerns. She also said she lives in "a liberal area" and would feel uncomfortable if it became known within her community that she'd spoken out on this issue. Gov. Phil Murphy of New Jersey, a Democrat, said this week that the Garden State will be lifting its school mask mandate for children and staffers. Yet the state's mandate will remain in place for another month — until March 7, 2022. NC VETERAN CAN'T GET KIDNEY TRANSPLANT BECAUSE HE'S...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Another city in the metro is considering a mask mandate amid the current spike in COVID-19 cases. Officials in Minnetonka, a suburb just west of Minneapolis, said they are holding a virtual meeting Friday to discuss a possible citywide mask mandate. The meeting would be part of the city council’s weekly meeting. This comes a week after Minneapolis and St. Paul reinstated mask mandates. They are currently the only cities in Minnesota with mask mandates in place. The state-wide mask mandate was lifted seven months ago. The new mandates in the Twin Cities are a response to the surge in COVID-19 cases due to the highly-contagious Omicron variant. On Tuesday, health officials reported a record-high positivity rate, and virtually every industry is grappling with staffing shortages due to infected or exposed workers. The situation in hospitals is so severe that health care workers in central Minnesota are calling for lawmakers to reinstate mask mandates there, as masking could curb the spread of Omicron faster than vaccines. The meeting in Minnetonka will be held...
    The United States has one of the world's highest rates of COVID deaths per million despite massive spending, several phases of lockdowns, mask mandates, and a moonshot initiative to develop vaccines. Confirmed deaths per million in the U.S. have hit roughly 2,470 on Wednesday since March 2020, ranking 22nd in the world for highest death totals. By comparison, Australia, which has had aggressive lockdowns, tightly sealed borders, and a 91% vaccination rate among adults, has seen just 86 deaths per million. Experts say numerous factors go into the bottom-line results of each country's COVID response, but most cite early efforts, vaccination rates, and buy-in for safety measures. The dismal effort in the U.S. got off to a terrible start, according to Dr. Amesh Adalja, senior scholar at the Center for Health Security at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “The first 100,000 [deaths in the U.S.] were probably not stoppable," Adalja said. "And after that, I think there was clearly bungling." That bungling included New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and other states putting infected...
                        Multi-platinum-selling and award-winning country music artist Travis Tritt announced Monday he will not perform at venues that require proof of COVID vaccination, mask mandates, or testing. As a result, Tritt’s shows in Muncie, Indiana on October 23, Philadelphia, Mississippi on November 6, Peoria, Illinois on November 11, and Louisville, Kentucky on November 13 have been canceled. In a statement, Tritt said, “I’m putting my money where my mouth is and announcing that any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated. Any show I have booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being canceled immediately. Many people are taking a firm stand against these mandates around the country, and I wholeheartedly support that cause. I have been extremely vocal against mandates since the beginning. This is a sacrifice that I’m willing to make to stand up for the freedoms that generations of Americans have enjoyed for their...
    A federal judge on Friday blocked Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee's (R) executive order allowing students to opt out of school mask mandates. U.S. District Judge Sheryl H. Lipman ruled in favor of two students and issued a temporary restraining order against the governor’s order in Shelby County. "Plaintiffs have identified ways that they have been excluded from participating in school programs and activities, including from physical education classes, and socializing with their peers when within the school buildings and at lunch," Lipman wrote in the ruling. The two students who brought the court case against the executive order are ones who are more vulnerable to the coronavirus due to medical conditions. The judge concluded the plaintiffs proved their exclusion from some activities in school is due to “their extreme medical vulnerabilities - in other words, due to their disabilities.” The students’ rights have been violated under the Americans with Disabilities Act due to the governor’s order, according to the judge. One of the students had to stay at home after catching the coronavirus from an unmasked student, the decision states....
    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's (R) executive order banning mask mandate for the state's public schools has been temporarily suspended, according to the Texas Education Agency (TEA). On Thursday, August 19, TEA released new guidance on public health to address the new ruling, reports Politico. In the letter, it was confirmed that the order was being dropped due to current ongoing litigation. The letter also noted that "the new guidance is effective immediately and further guidance will be issued once the litigations are resolved." The letter also includes a number of suggestions and mitigation recommendations for schools. Public school system officials are encouraged to correspond with local officials before finalizing any COVID or public health-related decisions. School districts are also now required to "notify their teachers, staff members and families if a test confirms a COVID-19 case in a classroom or extracurricular activity." The latest ruling comes as many COVID statistics continue to surge in Texas. Daily reports have highlighted an accelerated rise in severe COVID cases and hospitalizations among adults and children of all ages. Politico reports: "As...
    A Colorado school district on Monday said law enforcement officers will be present on campuses due to tensions surrounding the district's mask mandate policy. "The law enforcement presence is being increased due to the tensions in the community, related to the new mask guidelines at several schools. Local Law Enforcement is working closely with Eagle County Schools and our community members to ensure the safety of our children," Eagle County Schools said in a statement. Eagle County Schools issued an order last week requiring schools where the majority of students are still ineligible to get vaccinated to enforce mask wearing.  This order will mainly affect elementary schools as COVID-19 vaccines are still not authorized for children under the age of 12. "Our goal is the same as yours, getting our children back to school safely. Law Enforcement is requesting that persons who are wishing to express their opinions, not interfere or interrupt the freedom of movement and the functions of the schools," the district added. "We are requesting that the community partner with us to ensure that our students and schools are safe and secure...
    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) — Florida Senate Democrats plan to launch a crowdfunding effort to help cover salaries of local school officials if Gov. Ron DeSantis and Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran make good on threats to withhold pay because of mask mandates in schools. “If the governor chooses to defund public education and withhold salaries from educators as punishment for protecting students’ health and safety, we will fill the gap to support them in this fight,” Senate Minority Leader Lauren Book, D-Plantation, said in a statement Tuesday.
