Recently, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) was joined by local parents and advocacy groups in demanding that Governor Cuomo lift what he referred to as New York’s "unnecessary mask mandates" for students.
“If Governor Cuomo would trust the science and use basic common sense, he would lift the mask mandate on New York's school children today. Our kids have suffered too much already throughout this pandemic in so many destructive ways, developmentally, mentally, emotionally and physically,” said Congressman Zeldin. “No one is more desperate for and deserving of a return to normalcy than our youngest generation. Thank you to all who came out to Hauppauge today to call on the State of New York to knock off the nonsense and unmask our kids!”
