Brickbat: Masks Up


Brevard, Florida Public Schools has announced that it is conducting an investigation into allegations made by a father about Ocean Breeze Elementary school teachers forcing his child to use a mask, and also tied it to her head. The school official stated that the girl was exempt from school’s mandatory mask wearing. Jeffery Steele claimed that Jeffery’s daughter suffers from Down syndrome. She can only breathe through her mouth so mask-wearing is dangerous. His daughter brought home a head-tied mask from her mother, which he claimed led to him discovering forced masking. He stated that when he confronted school staff about the incident, they admitted to having been attaching the mask for six weeks.
