According to The Epoch Times, the CDC, which recently lifted its mask mandate recommendation for individuals who are fully vaccinated, says the facial covering policy should be maintained at all times at schools because not all students will be fully vaccinated.

Dr. Rosemary Stein, a pediatrician with the Christian Medical & Dental Associations, is not inclined to call that an effective strategy.

"Off the top of my head, I would want to say that it's probably not very effective," she tells One News Now.

Masks' impact in slowing the spread of COVID-19 has been hotly debated nationwide since the policy was first implemented, and Dr. Stein has her own opinion of mask dependability.

"If you can smell something through that mask – there is smoke that's being inhaled, there are particles that are being inhaled -- those particles are probably bigger than one virus or one microorganism of the bacteria," she explains.

Additionally, she believes that vaccinations should be an individual decision and not mandated by any governing body.
