An Oklahoma school board member said Monday that she's concerned kids could be "committing murder" by not wearing masks in school, according to Fox News.
"It's just not OK for kids to commit murder by coming to school without a mask," said Norman Public Schools board member Linda Sexton. "And when it comes down to it, it's possible. They will cause a death of another child because they come to school without a mask. That's not OK."
Sexton's comments were viewed as retaliation towards Republican Governor Kevin Stitt, who is refusing to mandate masks.
In May, the Governor passed a law prohibiting school districts from imposing mandates, unless he has declared a state of emergency.
"This is about personal responsibility, this is about freedoms," said Gov. Stitt.
"Nothing in the legislation last year prevents a parent from sending their child to school with a mask on, or prevents anyone from having their child under 12 get vaccinated. The difference is we're not going to mandate that somebody else has to send their 4-year-old to school with a mask," concluded Stitt.
