Calif. Agency Conducts ‘Mask Raids’ at Preschools, Interviewed Children Alone

Regulators from the California Department of Social Services’ child care licensing program “raided,” as some parents described it, the three locations of Aspen Leaf Preschool in San Diego. According to parents and teachers, the regulators separated children and toddlers from the adults to ask them questions about the preschools’ masking policies. Connie Wu, whose daughter attends Aspen Leaf, said her daughter was not yet 2-years-old when regulators interviewed her. According to Voice of San Diego on March 7, “Wu doesn’t know what happened in the room or how her daughter felt – because her daughter is too young to say.” Aspen Leaf received a Type A citation for not enforcing the mask mandate at the preschools.

Seaweed Farmers Discouraged by Laborious Permitting Process

In Washington state, Joth Davis operates a 5-acre saltwater farm, with a crop of sugar kelp, along with containers of oysters. While others hope to grow kelp in Washington, Davis operates the only kelp farm. Those interested in entering the industry face a lengthy permitting process, involving nine different agencies, along with time-consuming paperwork. According to Laura Butler, aquaculture coordinator with the Washington State Department of Agriculture, in Stateline on March 7, “There’s a lot of people who are interested in seaweed farming, take a look at that [permitting] flowchart, and decide there’s just no functional way.” Washington, along with other state leaders in coastal states, hope to reduce the regulatory burdens faced by aquaculture.
