    This is why there should be less testing. Problem solved. :rolleyes:

    Great point, everyone knows the virus only spreads at night.

    I would ask what kind of morons would send their kids to summer camp in the middle of a pandemic, but I think I already know the answer.

    Kids are going back to school in late August, it will take some time for kids to spread it to each other, a little more time to spread it to their parents, and a little more time for the parents to spread it to their work places ... yeah, it will probably be around October/November when the country is back to full crisis mode ...

    Guess your kids sleep over at schools. Mine come home and sleep at my house. I’d be worried too if my kids slept at school.

    Because we all know the virus only spreads at night when kids are asleep!

    Or maybe, the viral load over the course of a full, 40 hour week together will be similar to that of an overnight trip?

    Yeah, 15 kids in the same room together for 8 hours a day probably has more to with it than the gravitational pull of the moon ... Or whatever gator95 is trying to claim ...

    I just don’t care. Kids under 18 have something like a .0000000000000000000001% chance of dying from Covid, give or take. They have a much higher chance of dying from hunger, violence or suicide because of no school.

    Most of those railing against schools opening have no kids. Just like most of those wanting a shut down till there’s a vaccine are retired. They are just as selfish as the people they are pointing fingers at.

    Its sad to listen to the privileged talk about how they plan on virtual schooling their kids and those who don’t have no compassion or common sense. Totally oblivious to those less fortunate with 4 or 5 kids and 1 working device and a parent who may be half literate. The gap between the haves and have nots will widen.

    Pure selfishness.

    Nope. Did none of you not go to summer camp? You are in ridiculously close contact all day, let alone sleeping on top of each other so the camp can maximize money. Schools can stagger kids in the halls do limit contact and require masks. It’s not that difficult. With probably 20-40% of kids choosing to do virtual school, classes won’t be as crowded as normal which will make being socially distanced easier.

    For the last time, it's not the kids everybody's primarily fearing for on this topic; it's the folks teaching, feeding, and transporting them... and of course, once they get home from the petri dish, their parents.

    But teachers, administrators, bus drivers, etc. are all adults. So are parents and guardians who will interact with students once they bring the virus home. They have a much higher risk of dying from COVID-19.

    A private school held a late prom for less than 300 kids. Several students tested positive later. This was a dance, that lasted only a few hours.

    Masks and social distancing will help, but we're banking on kids social distancing and using masks properly for 40 hours a week, every week. And even then, will that stop the virus from spreading? Medical professionals who wear PPE every day and follow guidelines more meticulously still got the virus by the thousands. We're banking on school kids consistently making the right decision and doing better? Just not reality.

    For the record, I have a sophomore to be in high school, and one entering 2nd grade.

    God, the "yeah but kids don't die from it crowd" is so tiresome. Like they are reciting genius thoughts that the rest of us mask wearers don't know.

    WE KNOW THEY DON'T DIE FROM IT (WELL, MAYBE RARELY). BUT THEY TRANSMIT IT. OTHERWISE HOW ELSE DID NEARLY 300 KIDS AT ONE CAMP GET IT AT THE SAME TIME? FREAKING OSMOSIS? FFS ALREADY.

    so you want to support “science” to close the economy, and ignore it to do what is in the best interest of the kids.

    If you can’t tell the difference between summer camp with little to no rules as opposed to school I don’t know what to tell you. You keep your kids home. Mine will be at school.
