Gov. Bill Lee Says Masks, Vaccines Shouldn't Be Required For Tennessee Schoolchildren

Tennessee’s governor is urging school districts to drop their mask requirements, even though most children remain unvaccinated against COVID-19.

Many school districts in Middle Tennessee are starting to reconsider their mask requirements — or at least they feel pressure from parents. Gov. Bill Lee says each district makes its own policies, but he’s hopeful they remove the requirement for face coverings.

“Science shows that children have very low risk for contracting COVID and for actually being sick as a result of it,” Lee told reporters on Monday, “so I’m hopeful that schools will make the decision not to require masks for their districts.”

The new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does allow vaccinated people to go maskless in most settings. But, children under 16 are only just now starting to get the vaccine, and kids under 12 still aren’t allowed.

1. he's not a doctor.

vaccines should be required for kids when there is a vaccine approved for them. Pfizer and Moderna have filed for regular non emergency approval.

Will Bill Lee be paying the liability for deaths? the anti science, anti- expert bullshit needs to stop. ~3,000,0000 children ages 0-14 have contracted covid, approximately 300 have died.

Non-vaxxers are still selfish, childish variant vectors.

Open up. Demand proof of vax, or mask up. done.
