Spoke to a Superintendent this morning. He said the problem the schools are having in pushing back is PA Dept of Education holds liability insurance for public schools and they are threatening them with ending their liability insurance. PDE is colluding with DOH
Kevin T. Young Young
53:19
The doctor will not provide an exemption, as they are afraid of the state. SO can I get e religous or phylifical exemption? My child suffers from anxitey, he is in the councling program for said anxity. But again the doctors wil not help because they don;t want to loose thier practice.

However, I will hold the Eastern Lebanon County School District, its faculty, staff, and all school board members completely liable, both collectively and personally, if any child in the school district experiences any adverse health effects from the districts policy requiring the wearing of a face mask. This serves as a formal notice to the Eastern Lebanon County School District.
