Maine: Masks Optional for Hampden-area students
Many politicians and public servants are still citing as authority the CDC, even though this for profit agency has been working with China for the last 30 years. Additionally, the PCR “test” promoted by the CDC and WHO is widely recognized as being incapable of accurately detecting an infection. Meanwhile, CDC has quietly withdrawn their request for emergency use authorization of their PCR test because it cannot differentiate between covid and the flu. Weaponized covid measures have been based on this fraudulent test in collaboration with the CDC. -JD

Hampden-area students won’t be required to wear masks in upcoming school year
“RSU 22’s board of directors voted Wednesday night to make masks optional for the 2021-22 school year.
The decision came hours after two people connected to Hampden Academy had tested positive for COVID-19 and the town office had shuttered for the week due to a staff member contracting the virus. The same night, the Bangor School Committee voted unanimously to make masking mandatory.
It had been expected that the board would vote to make masks optional, despite the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendation that masks be worn in schools regardless of vaccination status because of the contagious delta variant. RSU 22 serves Frankfort, Hampden, Winterport and Newburgh.
Superintendent Regan Nickels told the Bangor Daily News earlier Wednesday that she had recommended a universal mask mandate for students in pre-K through sixth grade, since children under 12 are not eligible for vaccination. On Monday, Hermon voted to make masks optional.
Students will still need to wear masks on buses, to comply with the CDC’s order requiring face coverings on public transportation. Students and teachers can also choose to participate in weekly pool testing to detect virus cases, Nickels said.”
