勒布朗·詹姆斯: 'Zero sense' for high school basketball players to have masks under chins

在星期四晚上, there was something that perplexed the 洛杉矶湖人队 superstar as he geared up to return to NBA action following a COVID scare of his own. He couldn’t understand why players on his son Bronny’s high school basketball team were wearing face masks under their chins instead of over their noses and mouths.

I’m sorry but I’m at my boys game and the mask underneath the chin makes ZERO sense to me!!” James tweeted.

Bronny James is a top high school basketball prospect who plays for Sierra Canyon High School in Chatsworth, 加利福尼亚州.

The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) 跟随 guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) by wearing masks indoors in September.

“在九月 1, 2021, the CDPH issued an update clarifying that the current education guidance requiring all individuals (adults and students) to wear a mask indoors at a K-12 school, 无论疫苗接种情况如何, does apply to extracurricular activities, including sports and sporting events sponsored by K-12 schools. It further clarifies that this guidance also applies to student athletes while competing in an indoor sport,” the CIF said.

The CIF said young athletes can skip wearing masks if the American Academy of Pediatrics decides that wearing one may pose a choking hazard. Competitive cheer, gymnastics, wrestling and indoor aquatics were among those sports.

The California Department of Public Health touted mask-wearing in its guidance this year to prevent the spread of COVID.

Masks are one of the most effective and simplest safety mitigation layers to prevent in-school transmission of COVID-19 infections and to support full time in-person instruction in K-12 schools,” the guidance read in part.

James is set to play for the Lakers on Friday after his positive COVID-19 test turned out to be a false positive.
