“As the world enters its third year of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, strategies to contain the virus continue to be explored, examined, and scrutinized. In some cases, clear answers remain stubbornly elusive. New evidence out of the United Kingdom showed the research the government used to justify making masks mandatory in schools was ‘not conclusive.’ ‘The government’s own study in the autumn did not provide proof of a statistically significant impact,’ the BBC reported last week. … The findings may be a surprise to many, but they dovetail with other recent research that calls into question the effectiveness of school mask mandate policies.” (01/13/22)
