jennifer maguire started this petition to Minister of Health and

I am looking for the Irish Government  to remove the Mandating of Face Masks in post primary schools. We have had advise from Oxford Professor Carl Heneghan would spoke to the special advisory committee on Covid 19 who recommended that face mask in the wider community will not stop the virus and can actually increase transmission. We have the children's first act 2017 which clearly states No Harm should come to a child. I am concerned for my child and all other children's Mental, Physical and Emotional health  The Swift 19 barrier Masks for consumers information states that Barrier masks are not intended to protect the wearer from a virus . Masks are not branded with a "CE" Mark and are not PPE. the decision doesn't seem to be made on hard science .Other European countries have decided not to mandate masks for this reason, eg Sweden who are now doing better than Ireland in relation to Covid. Experts have stated that children who have contracted Covid have not passed it on to adults and will present with mild symptoms(Great Ormond St hospital ) In Ireland we have had 2443 cases of Covid in the 0-24 year age range and 1 death. I think school is a place where children should have the best years of their lives and not live in fear from a virus that hardly adversely effect them, Please protect our children.
