I know, we use masks all the time out of home.Masks are the only answer. I work in a crowded building with thousands of employees. What we learned when we got hit by corona is that simple face masks are VERY powerful at slowing/stopping the spread of the disease. It's uncomfortable for a while but whatever.
Problem is that my kid is disabled and goes to a special school with other disabled kids. He can wear a mask but when he gets uncomfortable he starts chewing it.
All those kids are absolutely lovely but it’s very difficult to make them wear masks and keep a safe environment at school because many of them have sensory issues and can’t stand feeling something on their faces. Others lack totally self control of their behavior and hug and kiss other people whenever they feel like and it’s nearly impossible to stop them cause they need it for self regulation. Others are like big babies with their ravies covering everything they touch because they bring everything to their mouths... I could go on and on telling more difficulties... I work in a special school too...also I am totally sure that every worker of the school will do their best to keep the kids safe, but it’s unavoidable to have mommy’s worries
