X post in the Lakewood thread where people were swearing up and down that it was a fringe medical position that people with antibodies can transmit it.
Itís just an unverified WhatsApp post. Donít put stock in it.

It is. And some random WhatsApp post doesnít make it any less fringe.

What's a "mask break"?

Its a 5 minute break halfway through a 40 minute class. Everyone can remove their masks and breathe normally. Girls are not allowed to talk to their neighbors in class during this break.

Doesn't this mostly defeat mask wearing? Shouldn't the mask breaks be outdoors?

Itís really fascinating that all rabbanim/community leaders donít consult you when making plans since you seem to think that youíre right and everyone else is wrong.

Do you have anything objective to say? @shaulyaakov made an objective statement and you replied with a subjective statement.

IMO, ahhh yes

Shouldn't the mask breaks be outdoors?
That wouldnít be practical....500 girls walk out of the building for 5 minutes each class period. It takes 5 minutes just to get out of the building.

Do you want everyone to get covid? Seriously, you can't actually defend decisions being made, you just respond "well that's what was decided".

People who have antibodies can still Transmit Covid as much as anyone else.

A random WhatsApp poster who probably has zero clue of what they are talking about. I only posted it for the first part which alleged multiple Hatzoloh calls due to covid. If anything I would call it baloney. It certainly doesnít sound logical that those with antibodies would be immune to the disease yet would build up a high enough viral load to shed it and infect others.

In March I listened to the Hatzolah scanner on the app and there were calls every second for a patient difficulty breathing, not anymore. Nough said.

Slightly incorrect. It's 3 or 4 minute break (depending on period) at the very end of class. They can eat and drink by their desk, and they are allowed to talk to each other.

Thatís not how it was described to me by my daughter, but what you say makes more sense.

Ask her again. This was as told to me by an immediate relative of mine who teaches there.
Who's right, teacher or student? ;)

Ha! I was sitting at shalosh seudos with family, including an Elementary school teacher, a girl in middle school, a girl in 10th grade and another in 11th. I asked: "What is a mask break?" One said, "Its a 3 minute break at the end of class where you can take off your mask and shmooze or eat." The next said, "No its not! Its in the middle of the period and you can't talk." The next said, "Its where you sit without your mask for 5 minutes and you must keep your head down on your desk!" Apparently each teacher has a different interpretation, and unfortunately the OCD teacher enforces her craziness to the mix.  :)
