Senator Corrado to introduce bill allowing kids to unmask at daycare

NEW JERSEY – Senator Kristin Corrado will introduce legislation Thursday allowing children to unmask at daycare as a companion to bills introduced this week allowing kids to stop wearing masks at school and summer camp.

“The package of bills we are sponsoring would override Governor Murphy’s executive orders and allow New Jersey’s children to unmask at daycare, summer camp, and school,” Corrado (R-40) said. “With infection rates for adults plummeting and little demonstrated risk to children from the virus, we think it’s time to unmask our kids.”

Corrado’s new bill would prohibit requiring children at daycare centers to wear masks.

On Tuesday, she introduced S-3878, which prohibits mandatory mask use at youth summer camps. She also co-sponsors legislation, S-3879, which prohibits requiring students to wear face masks in schools and on school buses.

The senator said an online petition launched by Senate Republicans demonstrates the broad support from parents for ending the governor’s mask restrictions for children.

“Nearly 10,000 people have signed our online petition telling Governor Murphy to ‘Unmask Our Kids’ since it launched a few days ago,” Corrado said. “Governor Murphy appears to be sticking with his unnecessary mask mandates for now, but we’ll keep banging the drum louder and louder with thousands of parents until he finally pays attention.”
