Phew luckily the schools are safe!!!!!! Hey wait a minute, trusttheEXPERTadvice toofunny For god's sake, it is a virus, it spreads. HELLO !!! but but children are immune! Scott and his pet medical dudebrah told us kids are fine, social distancing is not necessary at school, and schools are safe... Sigh. Even if it wasn’t contracted at school this is still concerning and risky sending kids in for the day. Teachers and children aren’t magical beings that were never going to get sick.. the government is delusional.

But hey, the risk is very low.....tell that to the parents of the infected kid and others who are currently terrified Joe_Hildebrand CollignonPeter sunriseon7 Can anyone confirm? The school may have 5g..and they don't shut the school for the flu. We have lost our way because we are guided by the insane!! billgates soros cabal drfauci china WuhanLab youcantcatchavirus you can only catch bacteria which is the infection from having a virus!

GladysB ScottMorrisonMP close schools in NSW. Geezus, the “lockdown” will be extended, make no mistake. Rushing our return to “normal” didn’t need to happen. Show some leadership here, GladysB. coronavirus COVIDー19

Oh, I thought kids don’t get the virus? And they also don’t spread it. So why the need for intensive clean up? But schools are safe .... right ScottMorrisonMP ? 🙄🙄🙄

Tas Premier lifts restrictions after shutting down a localised COVID-19 outbreak | Sky News AustraliaExtra lockdown restrictions imposed on Tasmania's north-west are being lifted after localised outbreak was brought under control. \n\nSchools and non-essential businesses were forced to close when a cluster of cases were identified at Tasmania’s North West Regional Hospital. \n\n127 people were infected and 11 people died as a result of the outbreak. \n\nHowever, no new cases have been identified in Tasmania over the past 24 hours, causing the state’s Premier Peter Gutwein to relax the more severe lockdown measures.\n\nImage: Getty Meanwhile in Victoria we have virtually no cases, but kids don’t go to school.

If the easing of restrictions causes further spikes here in Australia, we could end up in same predicament as UK Sky news, giving out false information once again.
