Amendment Prohibiting Youth Sports Mask Mandate

Today Representative Drazkowski introduced an amendment that would prohibit requiring masks for youth sports. The CDC states, “People who are engaged in high-intensity activities, like running, may not be able to wear a mask if it causes difficulty breathing”.

A survey put out by Let Them Play MN found that so far there have been 14 kids who have collapsed due to masking, and 11 have needed emergency care. Also, over 2,500 students have experienced dizziness and shortness of breath while playing sports with a mask.

Even with all of this information available, the DFL still refused to support Representative Drazkowski’s amendment. The democrats refused to even hear the amendment on the House floor today, quickly dismissing it under the guise of germaneness.
