27J Parents started this petition to Tri county health department and

We, the undersigned, call on Adams County Commissioners, Jefferson County Commissioners, Steve O'Dorisio, Chaz Tedesco, Eva Henry, Lynn Baca, Governor Polis,the Tri County Health Department, Jefferson County Public Health, Kyle Mullica, Julie Mullica, Emma Pinter, et. al to allow masks to be optional, without questions, to the wearer on all school properties. We understand that there are passionate beliefs on both sides of this issue, but solid scientific evidence is not provided regarding mask efficacy, nor is there enough public awareness of the potential harms of masks as it relates to children. It is our duty to protect our children and defend their rights. 

To restore parental rights and allow our children bodily autonomy, we believe making masks optional would be the first step in the right direction as the public becomes aware of the inefficacy of cloth masks and the negative health implications of obstructing the airway for prolonged periods of time. 

We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders to act now to remove mask mandates for our children and allow families to make the most appropriate choices for their children's mental/physical/emotional/developmental health and wellbeing. 

Ms. Emma Pinter made it a point to bring up the ill informed AAP letter, but neglected to read the factual arguments which completely negate its truth. 

You may know that The Great Barrington Declaration is signed by 850,000 people, including the following doctors. It states that "those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity."
