I haven’t heard of anywhere struggling besides the red/yellow areas on the map. I thought it was bad in New Orleans though?

Seems very logical based on what the media reports.

Fuck. Did you guys see this? Have fun in your new prison next year kids.

tl;dr: masks for everyone age 2 and above (yeah, good luck). Desks six feet apart, no sharing anything, avoid recess and cafeteria (eat in classrooms, bring your own lunch), school buses should sit kids in a single seat every other row. So, what does that do for bus routes then? A lot of the schools in my area already desperately needed more drivers.

I wonder if there was any recommendation proposed that they didn’t go with it.

I predict we’ll be saved by some kids with asthma and persistent parents

How completely absurd.  It is the safest demographic; they have a far greater chance of dying in a bus wreck.

 

Stop the insanity.

If we allow the CDC, Dr. Doom and the medical community to be the sole voices in opening up America = Allowing a Dr. to decide when and how to attack a fortified position.   It would never happen, and if it did it would be so cautious that there is no way it will be successful or effective.

 

If we allow just businesses and the money folks be the sole voices in opening up America = Allowing Private Snuffy straight out of basic training to decide on when and how attack on a fortified position.   Likely ends in a bloodbath.

 

 

There needs to be more balance on how it is done.  Up to now Dr. Doom and her modeling from Ohio State has been the driving force and the retarded predictions and numbers that have been so far off does not give the public a very good feeling they are making sound decisions.

Unreal stats in Pennsylvania.  

These governors, including Cuomo, really fucked up with the directive to send sick patients back to homes. NY is also fudging their numbers by having nursing home people die, but since they died in a hospital, they don't count it as a nursing home death. But apparently people not wearing masks are the "Grandma Killers" or DeSantis who told hospitals they had to keep nursing home patients until they were recovered. Lot of people eating crow about Florida and Georgia.

But what about the teachers?  Although I'd agree that the majority of people in the workforce, anywhere, are not in the vulnerable profile - over 65 with comorbidities.

If a vaccine is on track for November, maybe these people should be granted leave until January.  I'm sure employers can work things out for valued employees who would be at risk.

These CDC guidelines are "guides" not rules.  Lots of school cannot or will not adhere to all the details.

Yes, but it becomes politically risky for a governor not to adopt the CDC guidelines.  That's the problem, as mentioned, not balancing the extreme risk-averse approach of the doctors.  The doctors don't consider the economic and social impact of their recommendations.

Schools are going to have rampant absences and teachers will fevers will have to be out 14 days......not enough subs.  

Could you imagine having full classrooms of HS kids without a teacher in the city schools?

See?  I don't mind this as much.  If it basically comes down to the CDC saying, "This is what you should do, and we encourage you to do as much of it as you can," that's not problematic, I don't think.
