Representatives from Eagle Valley Behavioral Health and Vail Health agree that more negative behavioral health outcomes come from isolation and remote learning than from wearing a mask in school. So let’s focus on keeping our kids in school, even if that means wearing masks a little while longer. If we can work together and get the spread of this disease and specifically the delta variant under control, we will be able to lift the mask mandate.
We continue to see that vaccinations remain a critical tool in the fight against COVID-19. If you have not already done so, we implore you to consider getting yourself (and your children) vaccinated. It may be just what we need to get back to normal, and for the long term.
