Repeal mask requirement for employees/teachers

Hi. It is time to repeal the code requiring masks for employees in areas of high or moderate Covid transmission. 
- students need to see their teachers without masks to feel reassured that they are safe and life is returning to normal. 

-teachers who prefer masks can continue to choose that. 
-The CDCs metrics on moderate and high transmission were created before universal vaccine access and are therefore now outdated. 
-Teachers who are ready to return to normal reserve the freedom to do so. Their job is already hard and has been hard enough for two years. It is time.
