With the stroke of Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s pen yesterday, school mask mandates in that state are now a thing of the past.

Dr. Anthony Fauci obviously thinks that’s a mistake, saying it’s “too risky” to do so (video via Grabien News founder Tom Elliott):
Despite science, Dr. Fauci claims “it is risky” to stop forcing kids to wear facemasks

It’s never going to be the right time for Dr. Fauci to support ending school mask mandates (many areas already have anyway).
Without masks without the pandemic emergency Fauci becomes irrelevant again. It’s why he’s pushing so hard to not end it. https://t.co/2KxeygY3HW

Is it “too risky” to let kids go maskless in schools in the same way Fauci said it was “not smart” to have crowds at football games last August and September because they would be super spreader events (which never happened)?
Is that dude in the middle the one who serenaded us with the cringe-worthy song?

Yes, and it tested positive for cringe.
Maybe Fauci would be OK with kids not wearing masks if they held classes in packed stadiums while the gathered elite watched a football game.
The biggest risk to anyone is continuing to listen to Fauci. https://t.co/DMheSRXrPt

We’ll consider that science officially settled.
