Opposing Viewpoints: Benefits Of Wearing a Mask

Students should wear a mask to school, masks help to not spread covid and protect everyone around us.

People use excuses like “it’s impossible to breathe with them on” and “its bad for your skin,” but for us to get over this pandemic as a society we must try.  The vaccine and masks are important, and we all must make sure we’re doing it, in order to overcome this as a society.

Many may not realize it, but masks mandates are necessary, especially if you’re not vaccinated. Without masks and the vaccine, you’re more vulnerable to the virus and risking those around you.

After almost two years of wearing masks, many have gotten attached to it and can’t go anywhere without it, not only for safety measures, but because it became a way for people to hide their insecurities.
