In the Tom Woods Letter, Tom Woods laments that the “worst and most irrational responses to Covid” come from America’s “institutions of higher learning.” Woods writes (abridged):
Georgetown University just announced that they’ll be masking again in classrooms this fall. According to the university’s chief public health officer:
“Masks are required in indoor instructional settings, such as classrooms and teaching laboratories, on the Main and Medical Center campuses…. Faculty and other speakers who have received a primary series (e.g., two doses of an mRNA vaccine) and, when eligible, an additional dose of a COVID-19 vaccine (first booster) may remove their mask when lecturing or speaking in indoor instructional settings, if they choose, but they must be at least six feet away from others.”
There is precisely zero science behind any of that, but you knew that.
And don’t forget this pointless requirement:
“Georgetown requires students, faculty, staff and visitors to have received a primary series (e.g., two doses of an mRNA vaccine) and, when eligible, an additional dose (first booster) of a COVID-19 vaccine, or to have an approved medical or religious exemption.”
Some of the worst and most irrational responses to Covid came from what we laughingly call our institutions of higher learning. That should tell us something.
