Since masking a child is recognized under the pa code as child abuse, title 23 §6303 (b. 1)(8. ii) 8(v), all parents have the right to refuse to mask their children and should be informed of the risks involved if they allow their child to be masked, as it restricts their breathing of oxygen, and also the long term social, and psychological effects that masks cause if worn by children.
Loophole allows some Pennsylvania students to avoid masking mandate
There’s no obligation in the masking order for a student to produce a doctor’s note or other supporting medical documentation.
HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — An apparent loophole in Pennsylvania’s mask mandate for schools is making it easier for some students to go to class without having to cover their faces, even as state education regulators sought to make an example of one openly defiant school board.
The state health secretary’s order requiring masks to be worn inside K-12 school and child care facilities, which took effect Tuesday, includes an exemption for students who claim it would cause or worsen a medical condition.
