Our Ontario govt in Canada have put a fortune in re-opening schools with very strict guidelines. Desks protected by plexiglass, six feet apart, mandatory mask wearing and students not travelling to different classrooms. However, there were kids testing positive in 5 schools last week. Likely this happened prior to the opening of the school.The small town where I teach hasn't had very many cases. However, a lot of our students come from larger towns nearby and many of them play on sports leagues all over Omaha. And I would say only about half of the teachers actually live in the town.
So at the moment, it's probably okay to open. But it would've been nice if some of that business bail out money had gone to schools to help them buy equipment to make the schools safer.
But until the u.s. has it under control .. and the money to do so .. forget about schools safely opening Unless it’s online.
