New York City is the most abusive city in the world to children.
The Big Apple has been the only metropolis to enforce a mask mandate on toddlers.
The toddler mask mandate is lifted, effective June 13th.
We've beaten back the latest #COVID19 surge and cases are steadily falling in New York City.

NYC's toddler mask mandate is ending Monday. This unscientific, abusive mandate on toddlers should have ended a VERY long time ago. On Day ONE as Governor this upcoming January, ALL remaining COVID mandates END!

Predictably, abysmal poll numbers appear to have influenced the mayor’s decision to finally let toddlers breathe fresh air.
Mayor Adams lifted this nonsensical and barbaric policy of masking toddlers because one day earlier a Sienna poll broke where he had a horrific 29% approval rating (as he should, he is a horrendous mayor)

Granted, parents always have the choice to defy these tyrants and refuse to send their children to places that force them to wear a filthy muzzle.
That should be the motto of parents that have pressured Mayor Adams for months to drop the mandate.
From the New York Post:
Mask-wearing will finally be optional for toddlers in city schools soon, Mayor Adams announced Thursday — about two weeks before the end of classes.
The controversial face-covering mandate for youngsters ages 2 to 4 in public schools, daycare centers and other city-run settings will be lifted beginning Monday, according to a press release. The last day of class is set for June 27.
“I have always said that the science will guide us out of the pandemic, and because we have followed the data, which shows that cases are steadily falling, we‘ve beaten back the latest COVID-19 surge,” Adams said in a prepared statement.
The mayor had initially announced the impending end to the policy two months ago, before reneging amid increased spread of the virus.
In the announcement Thursday, Adams said City Hall continues to “strongly” recommend that “New Yorkers of all ages continue to wear masks indoors.” The city will keep providing masks at DOE schools for those who want to wear them, according to the press release.
The only ‘science’ Mayor Adams has followed is political science.
The Post Millennial described the reality of masking toddlers:
The move comes after months of NYC parents demanding that the mayor drop the mandate, saying it was “dystopian” and “depressing.”
