The U.S. attempt to return children to the classroom this fall has turned into a slow-motion train wreck, with at least 2,400 students and staff either infected with COVID-19 or self-isolating because of exposure.

that there would not be enough staff available to continue instruction."Unfortunately, we are in a situation where parents seem to be sending their child/children to school even when they are symptomatic or possibly even when they, as parents, have been tested and are awaiting the results, later to find out they are positive," wrote Reece Mann, the superintendent of Delaware Community School Corporation in Muncie, Indiana, in an email to parents, according to The Associated Press.

There's no federal standard on when it's considered safe to reopen schools, although the White House and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevent have released various documents suggesting"phased" reopenings and advising that kids and staff wear masks and keep students six feet apart.

As a result, most schools have become hyper-focused on their own local virus data, with some looking to the World Health Organization's recommendation that fewer than 5% of an area's daily tests must turn out positive for 14 days before schools in the area can reopen. Currently, only 16 states meet that criteria.

"We pay absolutely no attention to what the White House has to say on this and neither do most big city school districts," said Michael Casserly, the executive director of the Council of Great City Schools, a coalition of the nation's largest urban public school systems.

If"you're in a red zone, I think you really better be careful," he said Thursday in a livestreamed discussion sponsored by Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.Miller, in South Carolina, said her board anguished for months before finally deciding on offering parents a"hybrid" option, starting Sept. 8. The option allows parents to choose in-person instruction for their kids two days a week -- a move that cuts down the number of kids in a school at one time to allow for social distancing.

The hybrid model has been sharply criticized by DeVos when it was initially adopted earlier this summer by a Virginia school district. At the same time, DeVos has argued that a national plan for schools isn't needed because schools are run by local officials.

"There's not a national superintendent, nor should there be, therefore there's not a national plan for reopening," she said last month.Many parents agree with DeVos and want to at least try to move ahead with in-person classes as much as possible.

"I definitely still say, 'Give this a shot.' I think there is a way to do this in person," Carlo Wheaton, the parent of a junior at Woodstock High School in Georgia, told WSB-TV in Atlanta after the school announced it had to close temporarily after 14 people tested positive for the virus and 15 more were waiting for their test results.

Dan Domenech, executive director of AASA, the School Superintendents Association, said one solution is money. His group estimates that schools need $490 per student -- an estimated $200 billion nationwide for the 54 million students attending school in the U.S. -- to allow for schools to reopen safely.

The money could be used to improve ventilation and expand classrooms to allow instructors to teach their students while socially distanced.Trump announced Wednesday that he plans to provide 125 million masks for students. Domenech said he'd take it but it's a drop in the bucket for schools.

Tel Aviv set to become first city with electric roads that charge public transportation

The city of Tel Aviv is working on creating wireless electric roads to charge and power public transportation in the city.

Dang, i don’t feel patriotic enough. Add 7 more flags. jesus on a bike this country What did these GOP idiots expect? In their rush to reopen the economy, they forgot that we are dealing with a hyper-contagion. Why expose our kids to danger? How many illnesses? How many of them died? And what’s the teen suicide rate in that same area? If you’re going to report the news, provide all of the facts for your readers to decide- not you.

We need to reopen schools so I can ignore the top 1% of students who become board certified doctors and listen to charlatans and facebook groups Out of the whole country. So .01percent. Now do the regular flu..... also your numbers are crazy misleading. But that was on purpose wasn't it. Herd immunity is good people

So have we flattened the curve yet? Or do we just have to stay home the rest of our lives? FakeNewsMedia FakeNews Wow. 2400! That's a huge number. For a Nickelback concert. Not a country with a gazillion schools Ok, read the entire story and wondering if anyone got actual facts on how many cases. Reading this only gives a total of less than 40 kids positive. How many “exposed” have symptoms. What happened to real reporting of facts?

Also if this was such concern it would of came out months ago. But it's not, only a constant scare tactic for political reasons. The American people are so over it! That seems like an inordinately small number, unless you mean in one county in one of the 50 states. I don’t suppose you know the % , do you? Maybe you should calculate that, as the % is kind of important to a realistic assessment of danger. How does one get into journalism?

When the head of pediatric health association came out saying to get schools open due to the psychological and health decline in school age children that far outweighs any Coronavirus concern. Over 98% survival rate there is NO reason not to open schools! Death toll=0 Looky here, the lying network; 👀 I wonder how many less people died of other health issues this year compared to other years.

Joe Biden’s campaign is a slow-motion train wreck. J/S Absoloute Bullocks Coverage Hacks Is this in the whole country or just one state? Because if this is nationwide & you’re describing it as a “slow-motion train wreck” then it is no wonder people believe the media is spreading hysteria. I WANT to defend media. Really, I do. You make it hard.

This is a complete JOKE!!!! This sounds horrible! So, how many deaths? And how many are SICK? So about .01% or so? 🙄 More kids will die driving to school than they will from Covid-19. So? 2400? Give percentages please FakeNewsMedia Kids get colds and flu every day, children are in less danger with covid that flu! OPEN SCHOOLS!

But ESPN has no problems with football being played in ACC SEC or Big12? Wonder why? 'either' Misleading as usual. Trying to control with fear!! Fake News ABC. This headline is criminally misleading & manipulative. “ Either infected or self isolating” with the Fear Mongering 2400 student headline. How many positives & how many self isolating? No break down because Fraudulent Narrative Exposed. 0-18 risk 1 in 1,000,000.

Other countries have manged very well. Perhaps we need to investgate who is infecting these school kids in America! The headline is very deceiving!!!! Good news. Cases is people at zero risk. Closer to herd immunity. 58 positives out of 30000 students in Georgia? Wow sounds scary. Yes, people will be exposed. Who thought that they wouldn’t?

Now do the flu! Oh wait, you don’t test for the flu. Can’t have a fever if you don’t take a temperature... We’ve gone from not overwhelming the hospitals to nonnew infections. 🙄 why is everything FEAR with you people? a virus that kills .1% of those infected is NOT a pandemic. Children are the least affected but the biggest thing you won't talk about HCQ IS A PROVEN CURE AND PROPHYLACTIC! stop the lies and fear porn we are done!

Hey, ABC. Did you hear about the five-year-old boy who was shot in the back of the head while riding his bike in his yard? You haven’t reported on it. So, I was just asking. Online learning is an opportunity to listen in; they're YOUR kids, & to many graduate stupid & leftist (poor SAT, rioting ok, open borders, USA racist). This is a GREAT opportunity to find out WHY. We want schools, not indoctrination. Defend your children, be the grizzly bear.

Anyone have symptoms, require medical attention, end up in the hospital or ICU or died. Your story does not provide that information, probably because the answer is zero and your objective is just to scare people. FakeNewsMedia EnemyOfThePeople this is such a poorly done article. It’s obvious the writer and editor have no intention of reporting the truth. We need to turn off sensational hack reporting like this

The Trump presidency is America’s greatest train wreck. This is no different! He doesn’t care about the majority of Americans...he only pretends to. How many colds & flu during same period, in same population, nationwide? How many infected were kids? How many had a cold over last year & automatically WILL be positive? How many false positives? Media are the gutter rats of society

Love the little qualifier OR .....which accounts for 2000 of the 2400 lol. Seriously hobby-lobby couldn't have done a better job framing. Only 2400 NATIONWIDE? That’s good news. No deaths. Great! Load of crap...what ages are these so called 'students'...what staff? Fake News merit award. Lazy and dishonest.

ABC News is a never ending train wreck. Um..that's it...? Really? And where did they get it? Obviously not there? You’re the lefts version of QAnon Typical of ABC News. What's the total number of students and staff that were tested? How many tested positive and how many are self-isolating? Fatality rate? Without providing more data the 'slow-motion train wreck' comment is probably based on a biased opinion or worse...

Meanwhile, in Sweden... So in other words, it isn't 2,400 people infected I don’t think this is the shocking % that you think it is. There are over 50 million kids enrolled in PK-12th grade... This is a deeply stupid and dishonest article. “Train wreck”? Do better! So what? Cases make for scary headlines but are meaningless. But ABC gonna ABC.

Positive news! Cmon kids? Suck up that virus! Who could've seen this coming except anyone with a semi-functioning brain? How is having a cold, flu, strip throat, or any number of ailments different? Stay home, take sick leave, and open the schools. That is a drop in the bucket 🤦‍♀️ Who would've guessed that trump would get this wrong too? 🙄😒

This headline is such horse shit. Quarantining from possible exposure. Such bullshit. 2,400 isn’t even the size of my high school. ABC News is trash. This guys not worried So less than 1 per county. Is the guy on the far right taking a shit ? ScottWapnerCNBC I hate the sniffles. And not one child hospitalized 😎

.0048% That’s what you want to shut everything down for abcnews ? 2,400 put of how many millions? 40-50 million? MSM is complete garbage. Here’s how I choose to interpret this intentionally vague and misleading headline: 1 student (no teachers) is infected and 2399 are self isolating because students will use any excuse to not go to school and teachers don’t want to work.

You can thank Trump for brow beating people. Or self isolation to prevent exposure. Do your homework before posting bull crap. Break down the numbers. So? Fake news. All Bull Crap ABC news should know all about train wrecks! Lies, lies and lies!! 8/13 Stark State College (Ohio) has had no reported cases of COVID-19 traced to the school since reopening for in-person classes three months ago.

ABC news? LOL!!! Sock puppets for the Dems. America sees through you hacks This is just propaganda Wow, that's gotta almost be nearing a fraction of a percent! Wish we could see the actual numbers. Are there 100 people infected with COVID/2300 self-isolating? Since when in the history of humanity have we stopped businesses and schools from operating because people are self-isolating? We used to not work only when we were actually sick!

realDonaldTrump BetsyDeVosED This is truly who you are. Uncaring, lacking any remorse or knowledge of what the pandemic is causing. More than 169,500 deaths. Ask the families of the dead how they feel about the choices you’re making wrt opening the schools. news is as worthless as breasts on a boar....has a nice ring, if you want to use it, go ahead

the journalistic decline of ABC News is a train wreck, but it's not in slow motion. do the editors even look at the social media posts? So 1/ 20,000 kids have caught a virus that is more survivable for them than the flu and that's a slow motion train wreck to ABC News? ABC News wants to destroy the economy and create chaos for everyone until the November election. Our children are pawns to the corrupt media

All countries are trying to re-open schools. Math is hard Gee, tell us how you really feel, . So just the attempt to reopen schools has caused this? and how many kids have died from Covid_19 the last 6 months? And how many die every year from the flue? This is so bias! 2400 in how many in the entire nation What garbage reporting! You should be ashamed!

Why aren’t we testing all students to see if they already carry the neutralizing antibodies prior to opening? Test every 3 months if we’re worried about depletion. Why is this not an option? Do you know how many kids get mononucleosis every year and have to self isolate? Would be interesting to compare those numbers...

Wow!! The size of a high school, out of the whole USA! ABC news is a joke Math is hard, isn’t it ? 😑 Your network is pathetic. You realize how low those numbers are?s are any of these kids and staff hospitalized? You are a joke. Stop peddling fear That’s 1 in every 20,000 students. You people are such a joke it’s unreal.

Cant trust the media. They may be PRESUMPTIVE?! My bff works in an hosp emergency room. She sees TONS of Covid PRESUMPTIVE patients. I was like what She said if they have any symptoms they are called Covid positive. And added to the state count. It's lies. If schools aren’t open how will the teachers continue to brainwash our kids with their leftist nonsense? They should not get paid if they refuse to do their jobs. I do mine in and out of medical facilities every day

Fuck off with that fear porn, ABC. Fake news! What % of students is that? In public schools? 😂 private schools are open and doing fine! Lying media 1 enemy of our country is faux news and corrupt social media platforms! One year from now two years from now everyone has to face COVID-19. What a weak people and the world see this.

Not re-opening schools when there's been twice as many flu deaths aged 5-14 as there has been Covid deaths from February to August is a train wreck. I'd think at ABC News you'd know about train wrecks. This is your logic That’s pretty good considering how many kids are in school Funny how this only happened here! Many countries all over the world have opened schools now for weeks and had almost 0 cases, but not here huh? How does that happen?! Oh right, fear porn! Reporting lies needs to be a crime. People are seeing it though, so that’s great 😃

Cases aren’t news. My kid usually catches four colds/flus a year at school. At least one invariably turns into bronchitis. Was never covered by ABC News. 2400 is that it holy shit Trump is a smart as hell. Good job. 2400 out of joes words 900 billion kids So what? It’s not dangerous. If you’re a 70 yo teacher I guess it’s time to retire. And, just btw, no one forcing anyone to do anything.

Panic Porn Alert!! Everyone... we must mask and lockdown for the next decade. The thing is gonna get us. Remember historical average of 8000 deaths a day in the US. Even with covid deaths we are averaging 7400 a day in the US. Please stop the panic porn. 2400 out of the total school population....great job!! Influenza has higher numbers.

Good. More exposed, the sooner we're done. Keeping kids in lockdown is more dangerous to them than c19. So? How many had the flu last year? Lol a whole 2,400, you say? Stop scaring people. We’re tired of you. That was GA & they closed 1 HS & their districts r allowed not 2 mandate mask which they have-thus not meeting safety guidelines & just bc students who came in contact doesn’t mean they have.

It hard to Admit when you're Wrong isn't it America? At least do it for the Safety and Welfare of the Children if you can. What % of all US students is that? Are those that tested + asymptomatic? Numerous studies show children are not spreaders to each other or adults. Read up. 😂😂😂These kids and parents have been at parties, baseball, soccer, not to mention shopping for back to school! People are doing their business as usual with zero cares! How do I know? I work in the public since day one! ShutUp FakeNews

Big difference between ‘infected’ and ‘self isolating’. The very small % who are infected versus self isolating will in at least 99% of cases never have symptoms. Sounds like a big emergency Plain old evil Then close up. Lay off. And give us our money back so we can pay others to do the job that the government won’t/can’t do. No problem!

This is so funny! Democrats pawing to try and get the power back. Please explain the slow moving train wreck analogy? Is this responsible? Make sure you get your clicks! Fear monger! Great political reporting ABC. No school our kids can’t go How many kids are actually at school though..2400 kids out of...? Have all these people died?

is fake news-just extension of Soros run Marxist DNC Only 55 million more to match the H1N1. Whats the total number of students in US? And how many of these positive cases show symptoms or are sick or hospitalized? What they don't tell you is 99.9 have little or no symptoms and were only uncovered because of mandatory testing to return to school not getting tested because they got sick. A continuation of false narrative fear porn by the MSM

“Or isolating” so in other words, 2400 might mean a couple hundred or even a few dozen actual infections? And with what severity? The old editorial-within-the-purported-straight-news trick. Is this a hard news or opinion piece? Hard news opinion pieces don’t normally include phrases like “slow motion train wreck”.

Leftists just want to keep the schools closed down until after the election. .........God forbid our economy start recovering. They consider our kids getting a good education to be secondary to them regaining political power There are approximately 56 million students in America. 2,400 is nothing and ABC had to combine positive & potentially exposed to get to it. 😂 F*ck the depraved corporate press.

“A slow-motion train wreck” Less than 1 in 20,000 public school students in America. Students who nonetheless will nearly all be asymptomatic and have a 99.99% chance of being completely fine. With media coverage like this, life will NEVER be allowed to continue. BetsyDeVosED said families shouldn't be held 'captive to other people's fears or agendas.' SaveOurChildren COVID19

ALL THAT IS HAPPENING BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T LISTEN TO TRUMP AND OPEN THE SCHOOLS IN JULY. Scamdemic WOW! WHOULDA FUCKING THOUGHT?! Oh wow, 2,400 students out of millions, students who are at statistically zero risk and who will be at risk of much worse things if schools don't reopen. But of course you won't say that. No context, no big picture thinking. Anything, anything to keep your panic porn going.

“iNfEcTeD” 🥴🥴 But it’s a hoax. That’s because of state and local incompetence. 2400 kids exposed to something that hardly makes them sick in country of 350 million isn’t a train wreck. Huge increases of suicides drug ods depression crime abuse and neglect coupled with collapse of everything we love is a train wreck. OpenAmericaNow BackToSchool2020

Shut them down before you infect everyone JoeCurtatone sO mUcH wInNiNg !!!! This is a ridiculously irresponsible article. 2,400 people out of millions? So freaking what? Oh, but wait 2 more weeks ... and 2 more weeks ... and 2 more weeks ... TrumpVirus GeronimoTrump Vote4Biden well if there are infections, they close the school, not sure how that constitutes a 'trainwreck' real trainwreck was in April

Here’s the problem with just focusing on positive cases. The vast majority are NOT SICK. They’re not sick in any normal, day-to-day sense. If we did this with flu, you’d be hearing about 500,000 positives a day. But most people would have a sniffle. Open the schools. Your country is in the throes of failure due to gross incompetence. And some of you want to put these people back in? Unbelievable.

How r families going to be able to buy supplies if most ppl r out of work Schools should be open...stop the panic porn Trump2020 💙💙💙💙💙💙 Train wreck🤟look who’s “leading” us 🤷🏼‍♂️🥴🥴🥴🥴🥴🥴🥴🥴🥴🥴🥴🥴🍌🥴🍌🥴🥴🥴🥴 They have it, they stay home. Yawn...fear porn... 56.6 million students from elementary to high school. 3.5 million teachers for those students. 0.00003993344% of them are infected.

So you’re afraid to tell the actual infection number, and have to include self isolation to make your point. And here it begins.....the social engineering propaganda to make you feel bad for kids going back to school. Remember flus & colds have been an issue for eons. People get sick. Deal with it. read past the headline...infections are about 200...self isolating makes up the rest of the number....think of how LOW this number really is.

That's a very low number. How many infected and how many just exposed? hellkuoki this article said about 54 billion would be needed to actually carry out reopening schools, but Trump only want to use 125 million and only on face masks ☠️ NEW: Democrats support keeping POC and low income whites home from school insuring another generation of government dependent poor DemocratsDividingAndDestroyingAmerica

I can stop this in a week see my fb YouTube accounts Okay, but how many of the 2400 are actually infected vs. those who are self-isolating? Facts matter. out of how many millions? ABC is pure trash Pictured are the four primary reasons we are dying at an alarming daily rate and why we will kill more of our children. If we let them. TrumpFailedAmerica

You can’t even fake news right. 'TRASH fear porn with no context. That is 0.0048000000000000004% of the total population of KIDS ONLY in school, let alone the staff. It's less than 10% of HOSPITALIZATIONS due to seasonal flu, each year. TRASH. Utter trash. Let's retard our children's growth because of it.'

Was this at one school ? Dont send your children if it bothers you Do your children hang with their friends There are many ways to catch covid One thing its not a death sentence Many more recoverys then deaths How many total students are there? I’m going to guess including that number will make your tweet seem pretty goddamn stupid.

What junk. How many kids go home with the flu every year? Shame on ABC for this disgusting fear mongering- ABC = Fake News ABC propagandist Shut up and OPEN THE SCHOOLS. Please, enough with the fear mongering. 😒 That’s .01% of that population. And they’re not in the hospital or dead. They have it. Will recover. Like the colds everyone gets when they go back to school. The child abuse the “media” has zero trouble pushing to help democrats in November is almost criminal.

There is no way I would sacrifice my kids for Trump and his power hungry mob Oh no. The horror! ABC News is utter trash So when I get the flu my boss sends me home I spend a week getting better then go back to work. Boss does not shut down his whole business for two weeks. Government does not call me and ask who I have been around. What has changed ?

That's such a miniscule percentage of people in schools that it's laughable. Also, why aren't you reporting about the European schools that are open? And ABC loses the point of getting herd immunity from children that have extreme low risk of dying, less than the flu. These outbreaks will allow our country to move past this faster, it needs to happen, or it will happen in older people. Way to not see the big picture.

Mostly in blue states. You are evil carolstamey COVIDIOTS Woah. Roughly .0048% of the school-going population (all of them will be fine). So significant 🙄. Also, don’t you think it would be responsible reporting to break out the infected vs. self-isolating numbers? Seems important. GovRicketts SenSasse SenatorFischer

Lying media lies All four of those crooks onstage should be in jail. What's the end game, hide away in basement till kingdom come? For Gods sake it's a Corona virus, they never got a cure for the other strands, what difference will this one be? With 0.3% of the world infected we need 10 years for 10% of world pop to get infected. Won't work.

Oklahoma; 1st day of School☠️ Look, none of us can see the future. Kids need school. The only reasonable option here is to forge ahead, then look back in a decade or so and decide if we made the right decision based on the total number of children we killed. Well who would have guessed that.... EVERYONE!

realDonaldTrump schoolsreopening SchoolsMustShutdown DeVos is an unqualified Fkg idiot & should be held accountable for kids & staff getting sick & families suffering DEATHS VoteBlueToSaveAmerica VoteBlueToEndThisNightmare kids will get covid, they will get colds , the flu. life moves on towards herd immunity. zero will die

Keep the schools open... let the herd immunity begin. We should have gone this back in March. Protect the elders and those with co-morbidities. Shocker. Look! Its the four stooges! but how many that were exposed at school became sick and are now in the hospital? If they have minor symptoms or they're just choosing to self isolate, that is not a big deal to worry about.

Can’t we just reopen schools on November 4th? This is getting boring. TrumpHasNoPlan that protects our children and citizens TrumpVirus COVID19Pandemic listen to the experts. TrumpIsANationalDisgrace Good. There a 99.95% chance of survival. The more we get it...the quickly the human race builds an immunity to it. That's the way it works. Can't run from it forever. Even the vaccines likely won't cure it completely. It's our bodies that do the work.

Teachers are professionals at taking time off with full pay. Observation Self-isolating is not the same as being infected. Irresponsible to conflate the two. We all have coronavirus. A teacher saying it's unsafe to teach in a classroom during a pandemic is like a restaurant server telling you that the kitchen is filthy......before you order.

wow..a must watch.... Don't put the kids at risk. Make the right decision about them. They are innocent I call bullshit We are a freaking mess, jeez LIES If only someone could have predicted this. 2400 out of millions.... Great plan. Denial is everything..... Let's face it: this is what happens when you give lucrative government jobs to the highest donating election campaign contributors

Who could have ever expected this!? lrn2_swm Duh. They want to open schools and make masks optional. LMAO. Yea, students never contract sickness at school and never bring it home. Hello Spikes. 2400 out of hundreds of thousands..... Because we have a bunch incompetent idiots running the country. Why would parents put their kids at risk?! We are in the middle of a pandemic. Raise hell in your school district and say it is not safe to send kids to in person classrooms! Why is this so hard to grasp?!

Sure. Make it sound miserable. Many are isolated before the school even opened out of fear. Kids are sick all the time and have to stay out. This is the same.....except it's an election year, so.... Terrible attempt at fear mongering 2400 seems high, until you look at as you stated, not all are infected. Also the fact that in elementary, middle, and high school, there are 57 million students. This does not count college or any teachers and staff:

Trump denying responsibility for the deaths of over 167,000 Americans doesn't mean that the people won't hold him accountable. Trump may find it safer in prison than be on the streets after he loses the election. Many look at Trump as the cause of their love ones death. Lord, when will this terrible virus end.

1st of all i don't think that stage is white enough, so let's start there. but more importantly there's not an educator there either so, hmmm? perhaps the two are related, hmmm? What about 5-year-old connorhinnant shot in the head at point blank range 9 Aug 20 in Wilson, NC? Say his name! He will never go to school.

Has Devos been touring the schools to get an idea how effective protocols are and show leadership? And the stupid ones chant 'Open Schools, Kill Our Kids' 'Open Schools, Kill Our kids' How many American flags does it take to screw America? If you think that’s a train wreck you should see the online “learning”. What about the “Zoom Bombing” by perverts and grown men who get paid to sit at home by the government and cause problems because they are “locked down”. GTFO.

MrsDigitalAsset You say “The US” as if you’re not a US company. Wait, aren’t you? First off Betty DeVoss got some long feet... This is ridiculous. It’s a virus. People get it. Just like the swine flu. The hospitals aren’t overrun and people aren’t dying at some insane clip. Let’s get back to normal. People saying we shouldn’t failed statistics and have no clue about inherent risk.

2400 out of how many hundreds of millions of students and school staff What did they expect 🤷‍♀️ How can you contact trace kids? How can they social distance? How can they wear a mask for 7hrs? They can’t. It’s hard as an adult too. 🌈 I’m hand making masks and cute items to help pay my bills. Thank you to anyone who looks, it’s greatly appreciated!

Our kids were in school 3 days before positive cases shut them down. That was easy for them to handle. You're going, you're not going. Sorry kids! TRUMP LOOKS LIKE HE WANTS AS MANY CHILDREN TO DIE... RECKLESS DECISIONS!!! GOP has an ok to die quota for kids? lrn2_swm Come on! Did anyone REALLY think it was going to work? REALLY?

Because the US has one of the world worst leadership. A disgrace. It also shows the American people that Red and Blue are just color, start voting quality people regardless of party. Very sad. Trump's incompetence strikes again! How much more proof do we need to see he is unfit for a second term. So you need new ventilation systems and additions built on schools before you will do your jobs. Let’s just say that can’t happen and will never happen. So...... your never gonna go back to school.?

Not that this result was clearly foreseeable or anything. With a median age of death of 80, kids and most adults in contact with them are not particularly susceptible to the ID. So, an increase in cases in this population should not be a major concern. Sweden, kept schools open, and they experienced no public health crises as a result.

Es un tema complicado porque no todos los padres son maestros y ellos también deben trabajar para darle una buena educación a sus hijos. Las clases a distancia o 'virtuales' son una buena opción, ya que muchos deben guardar cuarentena como es debido. Dumb Blonds vs Old Dongs Someone obviously doesn’t know what six feet looks like...😂🤷🏼‍♀️

And the currentpresident wants all schools open. He is totally clueless and his only motivation is money and being reelected. hahahahahahahahahahhahahahahaha you people are absolute morons. And? Stupid ! never follow SOP EXpected to spread the covid 19 2020 is a slow motion train wreck painfully unfolding frame by frame.

It will no longer be 'slow motion' after next month. It will be full throttle. VP realDonaldTrump UrineTroubleTrump Trending with: GoldenShowersTrump Open school? (Please follow me if you can!) This whole country has been in a slow motion train wreck since 2017. Ugh, Fauci lied and now our kids are paying the price.

It's time to build a gallows in front of th white house

Russia says medics to get anti-COVID shots in two weeks, some Russians waryRussia said that its coronavirus vaccine – said to be the first approved in the world – will roll out to medical workers in that country within two weeks, downplaying concerns aired by some experts over the rapid approval of the drug Just like all things trump, I wouldn’t trust Putin if that vaccine were truly real.

Stevie Nicks Calls Covid-19 Pandemic a 'Real American Horror Story''I found it terrifying. It was the end of the world.” Stevie Nicks shared a journal entry about the Covid-19 pandemic, comparing it to 'American Horror Story.'
