Flint Schools Now Require Masks and Social Distancing
Flint Community School has made the decision to revert back to social distancing and wearing masks while on school property.
This decision was made as a precaution to the rising spike in covid-19 cases hitting the U.S. and not to mention the new Delta variant that has medical experts worried.
This decision comes on the same day as the CDC reverses course on indoor masks in some parts of the United States where COVID-19 cases are surging.
Citing new information about the ability of the delta variant to spread among vaccinated people, the CDC also recommended indoor masks for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to schools, regardless of vaccination status.
I already know some of you are already irritated by the whole mask mandate. I understand I'm frustrated too, but that frustration isn't as important as staying healthy and protecting the ones around you. Whether you believe in masks or not it's the effort that counts. This virus is still relatively new, but thankfully vaccines have helped mitigate the damage, but we have to stay active. Vaccine hesitancy is still a thing and I can understand why. But don't BS information grab your mind.
Listen to multiple experts and do what you can to stay safe, and if that means throwing on a face mask before you go into a building then so be it.
