Petition Ban the use of face masks in schools

Face coverings should be banned in schools as they can inhibit communication which could restrict learning and could create social stigma.

More details

I don't believe there is enough research about the effect that face masks can have on children in a school, so they should be banned until there is. The 'precautionary principle' should be applied.
