Kentucky governor: Sending unmasked, unvaccinated kids into class like holding 'chicken pox party'

What a crappy party, good for him

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D) on Thursday defended his statewide school mask mandate amid surges of COVID-19 cases caused by the highly contagious delta variant, saying that sending unmasked children too young to be vaccinated into a classroom is like “holding the world's largest chickenpox party.”

Beshear, who has previously made the chickenpox comparison in advocating for mask requirements, told CNN's Kate Bolduan that he believes he did the “right” thing by signing the executive order last week.

"Sending unmasked, unvaccinated kids into a poorly ventilated classroom is like holding the world's largest chickenpox party, except instead of chickenpox it is the third-leading cause of death last year,” he said.

?

Indeed.

'...except instead of chickenpox it is the third-leading cause of death last year,' he said.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Not the best topic line, as it's far too easy to misunderstand.

How about "Not your father's chicken pox party" instead?

I'd go for, "Like a chicken pox party, but with death"

Beshear has a lot of headwind from Ky Senator Rand Paul and his acolytes. Supermajorities in both houses would rather kids take the risk rather than be told what to do.

Sorry, I completely misunderstood.
I misread the headline and I just skimmed the post.
My bad.

"Deaths are very rare now due to the vaccine program. However, some deaths from chickenpox continue to occur in healthy, unvaccinated children and adults. In the past, many of the healthy adults who died from chickenpox contracted the disease from their unvaccinated children."
