Video showing a crying 2-year-old child in a New York daycare as the teacher forces him to wear a mask has gone viral on social media.
Earlier this week, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul expanded the state’s mask mandate on Wednesday to include children ages 2 and up in child care and daycare centers. Staff and visitors at these facilities also must be masked.
The video was posted to Facebook by a woman named Ann Walker:
“This is my poor kid at daycare today so I can work. #breaksmyheart #governorhochulthiswontwork #whyarewepunishingbabies.” the mother said blaming New York’s newly sworn in Governor for the authoritarian mask mandate.
