It is difficult to understand why anyone is still debating mandated vaccines and masks in schools.
This is from CNN:
(CNN)An unvaccinated elementary school teacher who took off their mask to read to students ended up infecting more than half of them last May -- and they went on to infect other students, family members and community members, California public health officials reported Friday.
It's a prime example of how easy it is to undermine efforts to protect children too young to be vaccinated, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said.
The teacher came to work even though they had Covid-19 symptoms and then took off their mask to read to the young students, a team at Marin County Public Health reported in the CDC's weekly report on death and disease. The teacher assumed the symptoms indicated allergies, not infection, the investigators found.
There were 193,000 new COVID-19 cases yesterday in the United States and 1,756 more deaths. Can we concede that we are doing something wrong yet? School opening has already been a disaster in the South. NYC needs a remote option.
