Closed petition Do not make face masks or face coverings mandatory in ANY (inc secondary) schools.

There is so much evidence to suggest face masks do not stop the spread of viruses including COVID-19/coronavirus.
Masks promote the touching of faces repeatedly which will spread any pathogens that are on the mask. On the topic of masks, Dr Jenny Harries is quoted in saying "Because of human behavioural issues, people can adversely put themselves at more risk than less."
Many doctors & health professionals are speaking out to say face masks aid the spread of viruses.
