  1. I thought it was just me, others are having problems too?
  2. From the CDC; https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/operation-strategy.html The following public health efforts provide additional layers of COVID-19 prevention in schools: Testing to identify individuals with SARS-CoV-2 infection to limit transmission and outbreaks Vaccination for teachers and school staff, and in communities, as soon as supply allows Health Equity Considerations The absence of in-person educational options may disadvantage children from low-resourced communities, which may include large representation of racial and ethnic minority groups, English learners, and students with disabilities. Plans for safe delivery of in-person instruction in K-12 schools must consider efforts to promote fair access to healthy educational environments for students and staff. Thus, essential elements of school reopening plans should take into account the communities and groups that have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 infections and severe outcomes. Schools play a critical role in promoting equity in education and health for groups disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Essential Elements of Safe K-12 School In-person Instruction Mitigation strategies to reduce transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in schools Regardless of the level of community transmission, all schools should use and layer mitigation strategies. Five key mitigation strategies are essential to safe delivery of in-person instruction and help to mitigate COVID-19 transmission in schools: Universal and correct use of masks Physical distancing Handwashing and respiratory etiquette Cleaning and maintaining healthy facilities Contact tracing in combination with isolation and quarantine, in collaboration with the health department Schools providing in-person instruction should prioritize two mitigation strategies: Universal and correct use of masks should be required, at all levels of community transmission. Require consistent and correct use of face masks, by all students, teachers, and staff to prevent SARS-CoV-2 transmission through respiratory droplets. Physical distancing (at least 6 feet) should be maximized to the greatest extent possible. To ensure physical distancing, schools should establish policies and implement structural interventions to promote physical distance of at least 6 feet between people. Cohorting or podding is recommended to minimize exposure across the school environment.
  3. Yes, I see your point. But what Texas (and the other red states) does affects the rest of the country. There's only 2 reasons they would eliminate the mask mandate. 1. They're stupid and don't listen to a single health expert. Or.. 2. They're playing politics and trying to backtrack the strides the democrats make. Even if it keeps the pandemic going and kills thousands of people. Then they will point at Biden and say it's his fault. And all the good Trumpers will believe them.

  5. I love the spin Fox News puts on this subject. Yes, the CDC and many experts all agree we can open schools safely. Under certain circumstance. Ventilation upgrades, masks, social distancing and vaccines. They always leave out the inconvenient parts.
  6. Maybe Biden's DOJ will give us some answers? At least there's the possibility they'll be fair, unlike the last guy's DOJ lackeys. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.tampabay.com/news/florida-politics/2021/03/04/florida-democrats-seek-federal-probe-into-desantis-vaccine-distribution/%3foutputType=amp
  7. Yes, word is coming out that herd immunity should be reached by late June/early July. Unless the red states sabotage it. And I hear some school systems may be canceling summer vacation.
  8. I wouldn't shop in a store that allowed people to go around with no masks. Not only is it a safety issue, it's a health issue. Playing politics with peoples lives, he should be recalled.
  9. Exactly. And they just uncoved 2 more communities of extremely wealthy Florida residents who also got the vaccine ahead of millions of other citizens. And yes, they were all developments of the same guy, who gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the governor. Corruption, pure and simple. I guess it can be spun any way Fox News wants to spin it.
  10. Do you have a source for these numbers? And most people want children back in school. There's been a lot if talk about teachers quitting unless they get vaccinated. So yeah, get the rich folks first. The main goal is to get reelected or maybe move your career up a notch. Florida is full of older people so it's pretty easy to lead the country in the largest number of seniors vaccinated.
  11. It should have gone towards vaccinations for other seniors in Florida. Not to the governors piggybank. It makes it appear very unethical.
  12. I would want the J & J one. If I were to have a bad reaction to the first shot, I would dread getting the 2nd shot. But I'll take whatever they have for me if I'm lucky enough to get one.
  13. Then why don't they? They're ignoring any questions being asked: Neither Ocean Reef’s media relations representative nor officials from its medical center immediately returned phone and emailed messages to answer questions about how it received so many vaccines before much of the rest of the state.
