A recent poll by CTV News has revealed that not even their own reader base supports mask mandates in schools.

As per a community poll released on August 8, 76% (4,536) of respondents out of a pool of 5,948 say that masks should not be mandatory in schools.

CTV News’s poll was fairly conducted, giving readers a simple “yes” or “no” option rather than a more biased poll on the issue of masking released earlier this year by the Toronto Star.

The poll was launched the same day the Ontario Education Ministry announced that masks are no longer needed in schools as a safety measure for COVID come Fall.

“Continuing with this direction and based on the advice of the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, masks will not be required for students, staff and visitors in schools, school board offices, or on student transportation,” wrote Deputy Minister Nancy Naylor.

Overall, it’s starting to look like the days of mask mandates might be over.

Indeed, Naylor actually feels the need to advocate for the inclusion of those who are still masking, as so few continue to do so.

“We strongly encourage school boards and schools to actively promote respectful, welcoming and inclusive environments for individuals who choose to wear or not to wear a mask within their school communities,” Naylor said.

It will be interesting to see whether officials pull a fast one and how they argue for a return to COVID hysteria come Fall, with even CTV News’s audience dropping their support of them.
