No one should wear these. Surgeons wear properly fitted surgical masks while performing procedures. These things are not filters for microscopic virus particles, and they are made from synthetic fibres: kids will be ingesting these microfibres — the chances are that by comparison it will make asbestos look harmless in the future. Further, children learn from facial expressions. It’s how compassion, empathy and a myriad of other emotions are read and interpreted. The social and emotional impact of children wearing these will be immeasurable and any education system or educator that endorsed it should hang their heads in shame. Unless the community stands up and says ‘no’ this nonsense will just continue! Toddlers next?
For our Jacindanista readers, here is a peer reviewed study on the dangers of these things on the American Government NIH website.

What surprises me is, when it is soooooooooooo easy to get a mask exemption, so few people bother. Go check out https://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1961/0043/latest/LMS138999.html

If (a)blocking that other person’s nose, mouth, or both: doesn’t describe what a mask does, what does?
