The inaction of both the Executive and Legislative Branches of State Government in the face of a Statewide Public Health Emergency is far beyond my ability to either comprehend or tolerate. It would seem the very essence of common sense to at least delegate to the local School Districts the authority to mandate masks in public schools and vaccinations where age appropriate.
