    California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Friday announced that some schools in the state will remain online-only in the fall rather than reopening to in-person classes.

    Schools that are in counties currently on the state’s coronavirus watch list do not meet Newsom’s criteria to reopen. That means that as of Friday, 80 percent of the state’s schools cannot reopen in the fall.

    Those counties include Orange County, where the education board just this week approved reopening without masks or social distancing.

    Masks are also required for teachers and students in third grade and above in schools that reopen, according to Newsom. Additional requirements include physical distancing, symptom checks, hand-washing stations and increased sanitation.

    Reopen school is impossible at this time, I am speaking from health care worker, mom with very basic knowledge. Every day I can see peoples dead from this virus keep increase and vaccines COVID still on last trials . Yesterday, where I work already 4 patients dead due to COVID and will be more going, Doctors try so hard to save life but this virus is so strong and damaging lungs badly on chest X Ray and others organs . I think, it’s good decision for fully online since vaccines COVID isn’t available yet. This is my opinion, again my basic knowledge. Thanks

    Yes, schools *could* reopen. But too many parents are irresponsible children that never grew up and learned how think any further than themselves. “We need education for our children!”, bull. If you were that concerned, hire a private teacher and keep your kids healthy. You want the glorified daycare system that the school system has turned into to take care of your kids. You want it so bad that you’re willing to think no further than yourself and send your kids off to get sick at a school that is not prepared to handle the situation properly. I happen to be familiar, with how other countries handle school reopening. They handle it responsibly with masks, distancing, and care. And they keep kids from getting sick. I’m talking from knowledge. I know teachers. The system here is ripe for getting children sick and too many irresponsible parents are ok with letting their kids get sick with a novel virus that their is no current effective treatment for if things go wrong. And yes, it can go badly. And guess what, if it does, you’re fresh out of luck. You’re kid could very well die. “What’s the chance?” some might smugly ask. Maybe only a 1%. But given the large numbers of people were talking about, that’s a hell of a lot of kids. Want yours to be one of them? Go ahead. Send your kids to an unprepared system with no masks and no distancing. That is parental irresponsibility at its clearest.

    Countries that are successfully opening school have a very low incidence in the community. Here is an interesting article

    Hi Ed, I called the Kamp in question. They have several Kamps, I think 6 in total. They stated that 2 of their camps were closed for a short while and that all of them will be opening next week. This article is a bit exaggerated.

    Globally it is proven, you can open school for youngsters and they do well and stay healthy. Only MSNBC cult followers don’t know the facts. In Democrat run New Jersey, thousands have died from government incompetence, but despite the incompetence only 1 (with preexisting health issues) child under 18 has died. Children are not dying from this virus. Open the schools, test for high temperatures daily, emphasize safe habits and get those kids learning, now! (In addition let’s recall Gavin Newsom)

    Vaccines don’t kill virus’s. But overreacting adults can destroy young people’s lives and inhibit they’re intellectual development. It’s only a virus. Calm down. We may get sick, but then we’ll get better. Speaking of cults Jim Jones….

    We had protesters here in Orange County protesting our Governor for shutting down the schools until it is safe to open. These people obviously have no clue that we are having a pandemic and that it is deadly! Our Governor would love to open all our class rooms as long as it was safe. The medical professionals and first responders are not safe and now they want to kill children and teachers and school staff. I understand that most are trumps cult followers but really. Get a grip on reality, the only way we can safely open schools is with the vaccines to kill this virus.
