Schools should never have been closed. This whole thing has been a political tragedy to prove government has the power to make us bend our knees to them.

Mask mandate needs to fully stop in every work place. Social distancing as well. Enough is enough. We have our right, to have our free right to choose for our self's back!

Comments on other side are comical. Claims they are relying on "experts", but they lack critical thinking... never asking for the science used for 6' distancing, and ignore the Oxford/Harvard experts saying 3' is all that is necessary for school. They ignore real world examples. Ignore the harm.

The science is clear - 6' distancing in schools is not necessary, which is why Europe goes by 1m (3.2'). 6' prevents schools from having more than 1/3rd capacity/instruction, & kids from even remotely normal social interaction. READ THE SCIENCE: https://academic.oup.com/cid/advance-article/

And with masks, people are allowed to cram into airplanes with 6", rather than 6' distancing, with different "cohorts" every time... but kids can't be allowed 3' apart? More science for those that care about it.... Harvard suggesting 3': https://dailyvoice.com/massachusetts/worcester/school

Kids are already in masks that they don't need to be in!! They don't need to social distance too. There is no science for them to be 6 feel apart or even 3 feet apart! Kids need to be kids! They all need to be on school full time! If teachers are vaccinated why do kids have to wear masks?

There should not be a mandatory amount. Let the huggers be huggers! Take away physical contact and just makes people more depressed

Have we lost our collective minds?? Do you really think the virus knows the difference between 3 or 6 feet? Apparently it DOES know that when you sit down to eat it's not allowed to infect others when you take off your mask. We have become a dumbed down society.

This shouldn't even be a concern.

No since there are some parents that are sending their kids to school when they have a positive test.

Judi, how big of a problem is that? The science is saying that it is not a statistically relevant issue? Because the most infinitesimally small risk may be possible, you would hurt kids? The kids are not at even remotely significant risk. Teachers are immunized. Concerned? Stay home.

We need to continue following CDC guidelines or we will , again, make matters worse. To keep schools open, follow the CDC guidelines. When they change, we can change. We shouldn't try to be "smarter" than the experts.

So, do you still oppose the reduction now that the CDC has come out concluding that 3' is adequate?

Obviously, if kids who shouldn't be riding these bikes cannot ride them to school, that represents hours of the day that they won't be on them, being reckless, violating basic rules of the road, and putting lives, including theirs, in danger.
