Guidelines for Tots For Politicians Not
“We’re all in our places, with bright shiny faces.”
Well, one of them is. The kids in the Georgia classroom are masked, while visiting Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is not. For goodness sake, at least pretend that the rules apply to all.
In Connecticut, our Governor announced the end to mask mandates in school on February 28. Sort of. Individual districts can decide for themselves whether to unmask or not. Lamont to End Statewide School Mask Mandate on Feb. 28
And in even better news, the Bridgeport, Connecticut diocese is making masks optional in Catholic Schools as of Valentine’s Day – won’t it be wonderful to see all of the kids beautiful smiles!
Regarding Ms. Abrams, CBS News reports that her campaign is upset that many have called her out on the absurdity of a classroom full of kids who couldn’t take off their masks for a photo op, while she was able to beam kindly from her criss cross apple sauce position on the floor. …Stacey Abrams’ campaign is assailing her critics after she posed for photos mask-less and surrounded by masked children during a visit to a Georgia school. The photos, which drew heavy criticism from conservatives, have since been deleted. Source: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/stacey-abrams-criticized-maskless-photo-children/

Obesity Worsen’s Outcomes from COVID-19
Adults with excess weight are at even greater risk during the COVID-19 pandemic:
Having obesity increases the risk of severe illness from COVID-19. People who are overweight may also be at increased risk.
Having obesity may triple the risk of hospitalization due to a COVID-19 infection.
Obesity is linked to impaired immune function.2,3
Obesity decreases lung capacity and reserve and can make ventilation more difficult.4
A study of COVID-19 cases suggests that risks of hospitalization, intensive care unit admission, invasive mechanical ventilation, and death are higher with increasing BMI.5
The increased risk for hospitalization or death was particularly pronounced in those under age 65. 5
More than 900,000 adult COVID-19 hospitalizations occurred in the United States between the beginning of the pandemic and November 18, 2020. Models estimate that 271,800 (30.2%) of these hospitalizations were attributed to obesity.6 Source: https://www. cdc.gov/obesity/data/obesity-and-covid-19.htmlhttps://www.cdc.gov/obesity/data/obesity-and-covid-19.html
