According to an article in New York Magazine, a large study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) late last year concluded that there was no significant difference in COVID rates between elementary schools that required the use of facemasks and schools that didn’t.
FEE reports that CDC analyzed the COVID rates in 169 school in Georgia between November 16 to December 11, 2020 involving about 90,000 students.
And in addition to seeing no statistically difference in COVID infection rates, the study also found that schools not requiring facemasks did not report more outbreaks than schools that did.
Of course, this is not surprising since a massive Danish study last year, that was banned on social media because it was not supporting governments’ current propaganda efforts, also concluded that masks made no significant difference in stopping the spread of COVID.

A German study also concluded that students required to wear facemasks at schools were experiencing levels of CO2 that were higher than those recommended by the German government’s environmental agency. The study recommended that students should not be required to wear facemasks at school.
