I haven't been keeping up with the latest propaganda, but it's my understanding that children of school age (<18) are the least likely to die or have severe symptoms, so their risk is least. Not insignificant, but the least risk. The teachers have significantly more risk. I have no children, so this isn't personal.

Do we now have the goal of zero new cases, zero new deaths, or the more realistic expectation that everyone is going to contract the virus, and we're just trying to keep the hospital facilities from being overwhelmed? Not everyone is ready to hear that the virus will get them, eventually.

In my view, the only way to stop the virus spread entirely is to shut down society and the economy for a year, and I don't see that happening.
