I spent my first two years of college living in the football dorm so I know a little about the lifestyle that surrounds the college game. Between that lifestyle and the physical realities of the game, I cannot imagine a better way to manage the spread of COVID. One asymptomatic "spreader" showing up to one practice before testing positive should easily infect, oh, say 15 others that afternoon. Goes back to his room and infects his roommate. Five of those just infected go to a party, get drunk. Three take girls home. (We are talking the campus studs.) The girls have roommates, Three of the 15 football players are the stars and have ongoing injuries and spend a lot of time in with the trainers who then get sick and take it home to their families.

So, as you see, the spread of COVID had been very well managed. (Oh, wait, are we trying to reduce this COVID thing. Football, as an institution,is just the ticket for managing the SPREAD of COVID.

When Covid Subsided, Israel Reopened Its Schools. It Didn’t Go Well.

As countries consider back-to-school strategies for the fall, a coronavirus outbreak at a Jerusalem high school offers a cautionary tale.


Confident it had beaten the coronavirus and desperate to reboot a devastated economy, the Israeli government invited the entire student body back in late May.

Within days, infections were reported at a Jerusalem high school, which quickly mushroomed into the largest outbreak in a single school in Israel, possibly the world.

The virus rippled out to the students’ homes and then to other schools and neighborhoods, ultimately infecting hundreds of students, teachers and relatives.

Other outbreaks forced hundreds of schools to close. Across the country, tens of thousands of students and teachers were quarantined.
Israel’s advice for other countries?

“They definitely should not do what we have done,” said Eli Waxman.
“It was a major failure.”

My wife works in an elementary school. Every year we are mildly sick in September and in January, and we view the infectious mob of elementary students as a boost to our immune system. We do not have a particular fear of COVID-19, but I do think that we will see the extended family of students and staff unhappily affected for those that do react strongly to the infection. I am predicting full virtual school by end of August, since we're now a week or so in and by end of August the results of the experiment will be known.

Not many. Schools have already opened around much of the world, and there seems to be little risk of kids infecting each other or their teachers. The best study to date comes out of Germany, which finds that the infection rate among kids to be remarkably low. Children seem to act as virus sinks, easily catching the virus from adults, but not passing it on. Being children, their bodies have much stronger immune systems, most show no symptoms, with nearly all the rest showing mild symptoms.

But this has not stopped fear-mongerers from printing colorful headlines with the words “can” “may” or “possibly” next to the words “cause.” Fear and sensationalism stoke controversy, anger, conflict, and drive clicks and ad revenue. Any good news, any information which might lighten fears and worries is never printed.

What is the good news? Is it verbally spoken since it is not printed?

That Georgia school with the hallway photo controversy is now closed today & Tuesday after 9 new Covid-19 cases reported, 6 students & 3 staff. Amazingly masks were not mandatory. They can enforce a dress code but not pandemic protection.

The young woman who posted that photo got suspended for 5 days. For doing a public service? For starting a conversation that lead to changes that probably will save lives?

I would want suspension over death... not saying she did it because....

There are online alternate schools in most systems, iirc....

She, they, deserved protection, not punishment

I just loved the school administration's replies about the photo. Weaseling around like they "can't control" use of masks, maintenance of space, and so on.

The young lady did everyone a service by unearthing the apathy ... and the manifest apathy of the school's "leadership" with failure to do what's needed to keep the kids safe. Bravo, to her, showing a "leadership" and policies not worth the blather they've apparently been giving parents this past couple of months. Little Jane and Johnnie ought to appreciate her action, at some point; though, with the way things are going, these days, it's hard to say what people will do.

One of the things that happens is that the mask requirements have varied considerably from state to state.

https://masks4all.co/what-states-require-masks/

Since we've had a statewide mask requirement, I've seen mighty high mask compliance in stores. A little less so on sidewalks and parks, but so far those without masks seem to be socially distancing.

Georgia: Parts of State (Employees Only)
I'm not sure if they're requiring them in schools, but one would expect higher compliance if the families don their masks every time they got to a grocery store, or inside any building. Make it a habit for EVERYONE.

Local schools around here should reopen if we can cut our local case count in half (by Governor mandate).

Very likely, some had legitimate points about being publicly shown. Still, that's a bit of a sham, given students are often shown in the local news in photos of the Friday night football game, etc.

Teachers resign as 2 metro Phoenix districts plan in-person openings

'Freedom to choose'

On Tuesday, the Queen Creek governing board voted 4-1 to reopen schools, which resulted in raucous applause from parents gathered at the meeting.

It was an emotionally-charged meeting, where approximately 20 parents, teachers and students addressed the school board, with the majority urging the board to reopen.
Anyone else see the issue with having in person feedback from parents/t/s if schools should open?

Seems like a lot of school boards make a plan that seems reasonable but when the criteria can’t be met they just go ahead anyway because that’s what everybody wants.
In those areas the requirement of wearing masks is waived if parents say their child doesn’t have to because discipline at that point is near impossible. Those that really want to be safe are put in a very vulnerable position.
you can’t really protect people from themselves.
