Rebecca Downs / Townhall Tipsheet
During a Tuesday night school board meeting for of Williamson County Schools in Franklin, Tennessee, Travis explained why it is that "masks in schools make zero sense." 

When it comes to "Our kids, under 25 years olds" Travis offered, there's "1 in a million chance that they're going to die of COVID. They are more likely to be struck by lightning, they are more likely to be struck by lightning, they are more likely to die from the seasonal flu." Travis went on to ask if school board members have mandated masks for the seasonal flu. "Well shame on you, because every kid in Williamson County Schools has been under more danger from the seasonal flu every year than they are from COVID."

Travis was also firm in declaring "I will tell every parent here, don't let your kids wear masks." As he emphasizes for them to "refuse," other attendees burst into cheers and applause, and give him a standing ovation. Read entire article and see tweets and video here.
How did CDC botch Florida COVID numbers? State deputy health secretary responds
Floridians 'deserve' accurate numbers, Dr. Roberson says
Florida Deputy Health Secretary Dr. Shamarial Roberson reacted to the CDC's inaccurate numbers regarding recent coronavirus cases rising in the state of Florida Wednesday on "Fox News Primetime." 

On Sunday, Aug. 8, the CDC recorded 28,317 new cases of COVID-19 until Florida Department of Health noticed that was nearly double the actual number in their records, which was close to 15,000. The CDC agreed to meet the department in the middle and revise the number to 19,000, after reportedly rolling several days’ worth of numbers into one. 

Roberson told Fox News that getting the data right is of grave importance. 

"It is very important that data is accurate," she said. "The people of Florida – they deserve it. We’ve been putting out accurate data since the beginning of the pandemic." Read entire article and see videos here.
