Closed petition Allow pupils to wear masks in all areas of the school premises

I am starting this petition to call on the Senedd to make schools let pupils wear face masks at all times (even in classroom settings). Face masks/ coverings can substantially reduce the transmission rate as shown in other countries around the world. If wearing a face mask is compulsory on public transports in England, then why shouldn’t pupils wear masks in a enclosed environment like a classroom where there are more people and spend a long period of time in there??

More details

Ysgol Friars has banned the use of face masks and coverings in classrooms.
