This petition is to recognize Michigan residents who do NOT want themselves, or their children, to be forced to wear a mask in public and in schools.

The ever changing CDC recommendations have caused great confusion. The evidence is showing that strict mandates, such as wearing masks, are not necessary and possibly unsafe for us and our children, especially with other precautions also in place.

There is no way to police the cleanliness of the masks that can go unwashed or unchanged for days or more at a time, posing a greater health risk to our students. Masks are distracting, especially for small children, or those with disabilities or sensory issues. They are problematic for students in programs such as music and athletics. They can potentially contribute to breathing issues, headaches, vomiting and overheating. A child that is a bus rider or in an extracurricular activity could be faced with upwards of 10 hours per day of facial obstruction. And, last but not least, they just simply DO NOT WORK when protecting against viruses. Our children are the least effected by the virus. Let them breathe and smile again with their peers! 

Those who are most at risk, or are uncomfortable being around others, have an option to stay home and do remote learning. The majority should get to be heard. End the mask mandate.

We have been restricted for over a year and are still worse off than the states who are fully open and aren’t wearing masks. It’s time to take them off!! 

Please join us if you would like our state to remove the mask mandate for good and fully reopen!
