Leah Saalfeld started this petition to Bishop Foys - Diocese of Covington

Dear Bishop Foys: Please allow our children to breath without the hindrance of a mask. Though cloth face coverings seem to be a helpful means to prevent the spread of Covid-19, new studies and data prove that prolonged mask wearing can be harmful to your health. 

FACT: The chance of a child dying from COVID-19 rounds to ZERO

FACT: The chance of an asymptomatic child transmitting COVID-19 rounds to ZERO

But the risks of mask-wearing for children are high:

  • inhaling the slow build up of CO2 can cause headache, dizziness and impaired cognition.
  • inhaling micromold caused by trapped vapor from exhalation which causes sore threat and respiratory infection
  • ingestion of bacteria or parasites on the mask from kids' unwashed hands touching it, which can lead to pinworms or digestive issues.

The RISKS outweigh the benefits.
