USA Today: Family drama: Parents didn’t want child to wear mask at school. Here’s how we resolved it.. “I am a clinical psychologist in Alabama, where less than half of the population is fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Although children 5 and older are now eligible for vaccinations, mask-wearing remains an important protection from the deadly virus.

Recently, I saw a family that had a pandemic-related issue that could not be resolved. The 10-year-old daughter was passionate about wanting to wear a mask at her school. Her parents were dead-set against it because they think ‘all this pandemic talk is just a bunch of overblown nonsense.'”
