Face Masks for Schools in Waiblingen

Due to the Corona regulation, a face mask is required in many areas of public life - also in elementary and secondary schools where face-to-face lessons take place. Again and again, however, children and young people come to class without a mask. “In many cases there are probably financial reasons behind it. Some families simply cannot afford masks in sufficient quantities. This is also reflected in the fact that many children wear their - possibly only - mask permanently, which makes it less effective ”, suspects the Mayor of Waiblingen, Andreas Hesky.

The city of Waiblingen wants to remedy the situation and provide schools with mouth and nose protection for children who have no or insufficient ones with them. "We are of course very happy to cover these costs," says Robert Mayr, Chairman of the Eva Mayr-Stihl Foundation. "Corona challenges us in many places, which is why we were happy to support various clinics and the Waiblingen associations. Education for children and young people is important - and in this way we can make a small contribution in an unbureaucratic way. "

The masks are stored centrally in the city. A first delivery has already been distributed to the schools in Waiblingen, and they can order more if necessary.
