Says Murphy Out of Touch With Needs of Children, Parents & Child Care Providers

Senator Kristin Corrado (R-40) issued the following statement in response to a new executive order from Governor Phil Murphy requiring all children over 2 years of age to wear masks in child care settings:

Sen. Kristin Corrado said Gov. Phil Murphy’s new executive order requiring 2-year-olds to wear masks at day care is ‘big government at its worst,’ adding it shows how the governor is ‘completely out of touch with the needs of children, parents, and child care providers.’ (Pixabay)

“Forcing a two-year-old to wear a mask all day is big government at its worst. Will working parents be forced to pick up their child from day care if they refuse to wear a mask or wear it properly? Will day care employees be reprimanded if a toddler refuses to comply?

“I’ve spoken to concerned day care operators who struggle to get two-year-olds to keep their shoes on, never mind a mask. This overbearing executive order is yet another sign that Governor Murphy is completely out of touch with the needs of children, parents, and child care providers.”
