Optional Masking for All

To whom it may concern,

I respectfully am writing to provide my input for your consideration. 

At this time, and at all times, it should be each individual's right to determine what protective strategies he/she uses throughout the day.  For over two years, teachers have complied with the protocol set into place regardless of their personal choice or belief.  It is now imperative that you revoke mandatory masking and allow individuals to regain their personal rights.  While others may say this endangers others, it does not prevent others from continuing to mask themselves or add in additional mitigations if they personally feel they are needed.  It does however, allow each individual the choice to decide what is best for their own needs.  

Thank you for your time.  I appreciate your consideration to end mandatory masking for all!
