The group “Michigan Parent Alliance for Safe Schools” has 11 demands in all.

Organizer Kathleen Lucas says they’re in response to rising COVID cases in the state.

“Community transmission is greatly affected when masks are required in schools. And that is in a positive way, with less transmission when kids are masking in schools. We also have our under 5 population who does not have vaccines approved for youth still at great risk.”

Other demands on the list include holding summer vaccination clinics, improving ventilation in classrooms, and more testing. The most recent CDC data list nearly every county in Michigan as having “high” community transmission levels of COVID.
