CHARLESTON, West Virginia (LifeSiteNews) — The West Virginia House Education Committee passed the “Parent and Student Health Rights Act” last week to prevent schools from forcing students and employees to wear masks, or to quarantine or test for COVID when asymptomatic.
HB 4071 states, “regardless of a confirmed outbreak, no school … may impose a COVID-19 mask or face covering requirement for any school student, grade K-12, or school employee,” since the “parent of a student maintains the right to determine whether their child will wear a mask … on school premises.”
It further states that no school or official “may impose a mandatory COVID-19 testing requirement on any asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic student and/or school employee,” nor may they require quarantine or isolation of students and employees “unless a case of COVID-19 is confirmed by a positive test result.”
The bill restricts the duration of quarantine for students and employees to five days, or to when a negative COVID test result is received.
According to West Virginia’s MetroNews, the lead sponsor of the bill, Delegate Jordan Maynor, R-Raleigh, suggested that its provisions are the result of “overwhelm[ing]” feedback from his district’s constituents.
“I think it’s time to empower parents, empower individuals to start making these decisions,” Maynor said.
The bill has already received pushback in the House Committee, with one member even comparing students to “Typhoid Mary,” a famous asymptomatic carrier of typhoid fever, which had a high fatality rate when untreated.
“I have some concerns about my child going to school, and Typhoid Mary being around the school and disseminating the COVID,” said Delegate Cody Thompson, D-Randolph, a public school teacher.
When questioned about the bill, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice said he is “not for mandating masks in school,” but believes the decision “should be left up to local school districts,” MetroNews reported.
Tell the Ronald McDonald House in British Columbia (BC) and Yukon to stop discriminating against families who do not wish to get the experimental COVID-19 vaccine!
It seems incredible -- like one of those click-bait headlines you see every day on shady websites.
But this is 100% real, and represents a terrifying new reality that families with sick children are facing without any rational or logical justification.
That's why we're asking you to SIGN and SHARE this crucial petition asking the Ronald McDonald House Charities leadership to STOP discriminating against the unvaccinated family members of sick children who need their support.
The Canadian Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon, which provides housing for the families of sick children who are being treated in nearby hospitals, has sent letters to families ordering them to submit to the experimental COVID shots or to vacate the premises -- regardless of their children's needs.
On the organization's website, the Ronald McDonald House plainly states the following: "All guests and visitors to the House must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. These measures in addition to an abundance of sanitizer and kindness will help us ensure the safety of everyone at the House."
But, of course, none of the measures suggested by the Ronald McDonald House, much less the COVID-19 vaccine, have been successful in stopping or even slowing the virus' transmission or reducing infection rates.
And with Pfizer's own CEO admitting just this week that the two COVID shots are not effective at preventing infection, it remains unclear what, exactly, the Ronald McDonald House means by "full vaccination."
Regardless, denying families housing during their child's hospital stay -- which is the primary mission of the Ronald McDonald House -- is not only a misguided discriminatory practice, it's stunningly cruel, and it must not continue going forward.
So please take a minute to SIGN and SHARE this important petition calling on Ronald McDonald House British Columbia and Yukon to stop discriminating against families based on their vaccination status.
These families need to focus on supporting their loved ones through very difficult medical situations and procedures, not get caught up the maddening politics of the COVID vaccine.
Whereas the Ronald McDonald Houses have historically been a refuge for needy families, they have now tragically succumbed to the mass formation psychosis over COVID taking Canada and the world by storm, and have decided to join in the unconscionable mass targeting of the unvaccinated to virtue-signal their way through these unprecedented times.
This is unacceptable -- particularly from an organization like the Ronald McDonald House -- and it must stop.

The neighboring state of Virginia enacted a similar measure when Governor Glenn Youngkin issued an executive order declaring that parents have the sole right to decide whether their children wear masks in public schools.
Florida has gone even farther by stripping eight school districts of state funding after they violated Governor Ron DeSantis’ executive order banning Florida schools from reimposing mask mandates for schoolchildren last fall. These school districts eventually complied with the order after unsuccessfully challenging it in court.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released a statement advocating for all children age two and up to wear masks in schools despite evidence that children do not significantly spread COVID-19 and research which suggests face masks may pose a risk to children’s health.
Research published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) found that face masks cause children to inhale dangerous levels of carbon dioxide, more than six times the legal safe limit for closed rooms as set down by the German Federal Environmental Office.
The effect was worse for younger children, with one seven year-old child inhaling air with 2.5% carbon dioxide, over 12 times the safe limit.
The Parent and Student Health Rights Act now goes to West Virginia’s House Judiciary Committee.
