New York City toddlers scored a court victory with a ‘permanent injunction’ against the city’s mask mandate for children between the ages of two and four.
However, the legal victory wouldn’t make it to Saturday.
An appellate court issued a stay late Friday to reimpose the toddler mask mandate for now.
As a reminder, Mayor Adams stated the city would lift the toddler mask mandate on April 4th if cases remained low.
To my knowledge, NYC is the world’s only city to mandate masks on toddlers.
If there’s another city with a toddler mask mandate, someone fact check me in the comments.
Critics unleashed a fury aimed at Mayor Adams and the NYC Health Department Commissioner:
Is a #Tyrant
That is telling people to "Listen to your mayor"
He is belittling Adults and is disgraceful. His actions are not based on #science or #logic
They are based on the #pharma agenda. @NYCMayor Enough with your arrogance. We will not accept your #tyranny !!! pic.twitter.com/4AV2xcQCZZ

ICYMI, yesterday’s toddler masking drama:

2pm: @NYCHealthCommr mandates harder w/o showing data.
7pm: Different judge issues a stay, masks back on.

But at this point, parents have no excuse to unmask their children.
The mayor and health commissioner are tyrants on a power trip that will continue abusing innocent children.
It’s up to parents to tell them no and end the child abuse.
At this point if you let these psychopaths abuse your little children… you are complicit. https://t.co/q0sBoTmL07

Pix 11 reported:
Michael Chessa is the lawyer for the parents. “I want parents to choose what’s best for their children. We’re not anti-mask, we are pro-parental choice,” Chessa said.
The teachers union responded to the toddler mask mandate debate. “The mask mandate for the youngest children is now in the courts. While it works its way through the legal process, we need to keep the focus on other measures that are helping to keep schools safe — encouraging vaccinations for those eligible, aggressive testing, and following cleaning and ventilation protocols,” UFT President Michael Mulgrew said in a written statement.
“We have no vaccine product for anyone under 5, and they remain our most vulnerable population,” Dr. Ashwin Vasan, the NYC Health Commissioner, said at a news conference.
With coronavirus cases rising because the BA.2 variant is 50% more transmissible than omicron, Vasan was wearing a mask at the news conference and encouraging New Yorkers to get booster shots and to wear masks in indoor public settings.
These medical dictators will continue masking toddlers until the corrupt FDA authorizes an experimental shot for the age bracket.
That’s why the parents must end this madness by refusing to comply.
