Subject: (NY) State Senator Daphne Jordan Opposes Children Mask “Mandate”
On May 28, I received a message (below) from NY State Senator Daphne Jordan (43rd District). She stated she streamed a virtual rally to oppose Cuomo’s attempt to “mandate” kids as young as two wear masks in daycare.
Message From Senator Jordan:
On Monday morning, my colleagues in the Senate Republican Conference and I streamed a virtual rally advocating for children that were recently ordered by Governor Cuomo to wear a mask at daycare. New Yorkers were furious that the Governor mandated their children (2 years and up) to wear masks at the same time the CDC lifted the mask mandate.
This move defied logic and science, and Senate Republicans, combined with the voices of our parents, daycare providers and any New Yorker with an ounce of common sense immediately called for its repeal.
Because of the swift reaction and support from honest, concerned New Yorkers such as yourself, toddlers and preschoolers are no longer required to wear face masks and their teachers can get back to what they do best: keep our children safe and ensure their healthy growth and development.
Your efforts sent the Governor a strong message that we demand better for our children. Later on Monday, Governor Cuomo lifted his ridiculous mandate that children aged 2-to-5 must wear facemasks while at daycare or preschool.
Going forward, I know that by working together, we can continue to make positive change for our state.
