Teachers are literally worse than healthcare workers. These are the most self-centered, self-righteous sluts on the face of the planet.
Unlike healthcare workers, they are actually involved with instructing our children.
Why do we allow this?
About 99% of children in the US live in a county considered a “red” zone with high levels of Covid-19 transmission under new US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention school opening guidance, according to a CNN analysis of federal data.
The new CDC guidelines recommend virtual learning for middle and high schools and hybrid learning or reduced attendance for elementary schools in these high transmission zones.
Nearly 73 million children — about 99% of the US population under the age of 18 — live in such a “high transmission” community, defined by the CDC as a county where there were at least 100 new Covid-19 cases per 100,000 people or a test positivity rate of at least 10% during the past seven days.
The CDC guidance stresses five key mitigation strategies: requiring masks, physical distancing, handwashing, maintaining clean facilities and contract tracing. It also recommends different strategies based on how much transmission there is in the surrounding community, and has a color-coded guide with areas of high transmission colored red; substantial transmission colored orange; moderate transmission coded yellow and low transmission as blue.
The CDC says school districts should re-assess weekly.
If schools in “high transmission” communities cannot “strictly implement all mitigation strategies,” the CDC says all extracurricular activities should be virtual. Plus middle and high schools should stick with virtual learning in these red zones, and elementary schools should maximize physical distance through hybrid learning or reduced attendance.
Fewer than 100,000 children in the US live in a county considered “low” or “moderate transmission” where the CDC recommends K-12 schools open for full in-person instruction.
I’m so sick of “I predicted this,” but I have to point out that I told you they were going to use the same color-coded alert system as they used for terrorism for the coronavirus.
Now you have it. It’s “red alert coronavirus threat level.”
They are going to start micro-managing these alerts, like they already do in New York City, where it is block-by-block, and any block can be shut down completely while the next block over is open to go about their business.
That will then be used to crack down on people, for political reasons or any other reason. Under a red alert, cops are allowed to enter your house without a warrant, ostensibly to check you for the virus.
This is just going to keep getting more and more extreme. At no point has it been pulled back, other than over the summer a little bit (because this is a seasonable respiratory infection).
Maybe they will pull back again a little bit this summer. I don’t know. They probably will.
But that will be the last summer pullback. Then, it’s the road straight to hell.
