From March 14, 2020 to May 28, 2021, people have become less afraid of the COVID-19 impact. In our first few months of COVID, people bought out toiletries and certain foods. Now we are able to roam free as long as we are vaccinated.

Vaccines for people 12 and older are now available for anyone and have been out for a few weeks. By the time school starts back up in the fall, it will have been a few months. The CDC has lifted the old guidelines giving schools the freedom to separate from the masks. Schools should  not continue to make us wear them.

Not wearing masks in school is just as hazardous as not wearing a mask in a local grocery store. Scientists have proven that kids, teens, and young adults have a better immune system than infants and elderly. Researchers also have considered people below the age of 50 more immune than infants and elderly. Considering the schools’ majority of ages, it wouldn’t affect us as much.

As much as people and the staff members of Lincoln Park are trying to keep everyone safe, we need to return to normal. Masks don’t help as much as people think they do. Since anyone 12 and older are now able to receive the vaccine, it is on them if they get it or not.
