Pediatricians Recommend Universal Masking in Schools

HeadlineJul 20, 2021

On Monday, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended all students over the age of 2, as well as teachers and staff, wear masks when they return to school — even if they have been vaccinated. However, many states have already banned school mask mandates. In related news, a federal judge has ruled Indiana University can proceed with its plan to require all students to get vaccinated before returning to campus. Twitter has temporarily suspended Republican Congressmember Marjorie Taylor Greene for posting misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines.
