A virtual rally is calling on the governor to reverse the mask mandate for children.

Gov. Cuomo announced that new mandate last week.

Kids ages 2+ in daycares or a camp setting will now need to wear a mask.

Many have asked why now, when it hasn't been required in daycares the entire pandemic.

Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin said the county won’t be enforcing this guidance.

The rally is being hosted by state Republican senators, daycare providers and parents.

Jerry Gretzinger takes a look at what some people were saying at the rally starting Live at 4, and on WNYT.com.
