Let me be clear. This petition has no bearings on  masks being worn indoors. That is not where I am going with this.  What I would like to see is children running around on the play ground with out being forced to wear a mask. 

Exerting yourself physically Causes Perspiration. Sweat can make the mask become wet more quickly, which makes it difficult to breathe and promotes the growth of micro organisms. 

When you exert yourself with a face mask on you are ultimately decreasing the flow of air to your lungs, which can become dangerous if you overdo It and don’t take enough mask breaks.  Essentially, you’re inhaling carbon dioxide due to heavy breaths getting trapped in the mask cloth preventing fresh air from getting in. 

I personally do not see children playing in their neighborhoods while wearing a mask. Lots of these same school friends are playing side by side after school and on weekends, With out masks. 
 

Masks have created a great deal of fear and anxiety  in our children. I believe that recess and outdoor play should be a time for children to be just that...children.
