It seems that someone placed a complaint about a lack of enforcement of a mask mandate in a preschool, and another agency took it upon themselves to investigate, thus violating rights and making a big mess.
Officials with the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) visited all three locations of Aspen Leaf Preschool in January after receiving a complaint that the school was not enforcing the state’s mask mandate, according to the CDSS’ response to a complaint by the preschool’s owner, Howard Wu.
According to the CDSS letter, which Wu shared with Fox News Digital, officials with the agency’s Community Care Licensing Division entered the three preschool locations on Jan. 19, separated the children from their teachers, and interviewed them privately about their masking practices.
“Every family we heard from after the inspections were furious about the interviews,” Wu told Fox News Digital. “We were open the whole pandemic about not masking children and the reasons why. The policy was on our website. Put simply, the mask guidance says children can NOT mask when eating and sleeping. In full-day child care that’s 3 hours, so masking at other times offers no health benefit. All the families (except 1 in January) supported the policy.”
How this was handled is a disgrace. Why it is that those with any sort of authority simply violate the rights of others at will is a mystery. It’s as if they believe they have a directive to do so.
That is simply not the American way!
