Dr. Anthony Fauci recently announced that he will retire by the end of Joe Biden’s first term.
He wants to be out the door before President Donald Trump or President Ron DeSantis gives him the big boot.
But officials just honored Fauci’s retirement with one mind-numbing announcement.
After Anthony Fauci retires as head of the NIAID, he might look into relocating to San Diego, California.
That’s where school board officials just warmed his heart by reinstituting mask mandates for children in schools.
Dr. Sharon Whitehouse-Payne, president of the San Diego Unified School District, effectively announced a zero tolerance policy regarding masks during a television news interview.
The anchor inquired about parents who don’t want their children masked up for eight hours a day, asking, “Parents who don’t want to wear a mask indoors in school, are there any other options for them?”
Whitehouse-Payne responded, “For the fall, there are some options. They can go to our school that’s online. They can opt not to return to the regular school, but the school where they don’t have to go to school at all other than via Zoom, and that’s the easiest way for folks who don’t want to participate in that.”
In other words, parents are stuck with substandard Zoom classes for their kids if they don’t want to engage in COVID mask theater.
The anchor continued, “What about summer school? What if they were already enrolled in the summer school and now they get this mask mandate, and they’re not comfortable with wearing the mask?”
Whitehouse-Payne replied, “They really should wear the mask…They should just…make it known that they don’t feel comfortable and at that point, just not return.”
Mask mandates are back for @SDSchools students.
For students who feel uncomfortable wearing a mask, SDUSD President Sharon Whitehurst-Payne suggests not returning to school at all.

It’s unbelievable that the COVID regime is continuing with this charade two years into the pandemic.
Dr. Leana Wen of CNN finally called uncle last year and said, “Don’t wear a cloth mask. Cloth masks are little more than facial decorations. There’s no place for them in light of Omicron.”
So even CNN’s doctor is admitting cloth masks are useless, yet COVID fanatics still wear them.
As for N95 masks, they have been shown to have a small amount of efficacy if worn properly, but most people do not, especially children.
When worn correctly, the masks are uncomfortable, particularly when they’re on for eight hours during school.
They also become petri dishes for germs.
Mask mandates for children in school are preposterous at this point.
