ABC NEWS — Tensions flared at a public hearing in Utah over the state’s mask mandate for schoolchildren after several parents defied orders by packing the room without face coverings.

The parents, some of whom carried signs condemning face masks, failed to sit in the marked seats and booed at the Utah County officials Wednesday night. The hearing was held over a letter by Utah County Commissioner Bill Lee, which asked Gov. Gary Herbert to waive his requirement kindergarten to 12th grade students wear a mask when schools reopen.

Utah County Commissioner Tanner Ainge has opposed the letter citing safety for the students and admonished the crowd for blatantly putting everyone in the hearing room at risk by not wearing masks or socially distancing. […]

  1. These parents are absolutely right. Wearing cloth masks actually increase the chances of infection as study after study has confirmed. In any case who the heck wants to breathe back in their expended CO2 and restrict their intake of O2? And if you wear glasses as I do, they continually fog up.
