They explained that students are allowed to enter without wearing a mask only if they have a particular medical reason. The night before his arrest, Bauman told the news that he didn’t care about the school policies.
The policies are otherwise illegal. His daughter was not going to put the mask on her face and he didn’t care what would happen further. Furthermore, Bauman added that he received a phone call saying that if your daughter did not attend the school her name would be removed from the registers of the school. The moment when the school officials said that a mask is mandatory to wear while entering the school, Bauman responded that she would not wear a mask anymore. He said that his daughter didn’t need to follow the exemption policy and said that it was all illegal.
