Teen who can’t mask can’t work

I was with my toddler at an entirely outdoor water park in Orlando where customers were able to roam mask-free but employees all had to remain masked.

Mental and emotional well-being

My grade 5 has complained of having a difficult time breathing while wearing the mask at school. My grade 2 is mask exempt and has faced bullying, condemnation, and discrimination from students and teachers during school. She has been told repeatedly by a teacher that if one child gets sick all the kids have to get tested, instilling a tremendous amount of fear, anxiety, and misdirected responsibility onto her shoulders. My child begged me to…
