Indiana school had to quarantine students within hours of reopening

A School Reopens, and the Coronavirus Creeps In
As more schools abandon plans for in-person classes, one that opened in Indiana this week had to quarantine students within hours.

One of the first school districts in the country to reopen its doors during the coronavirus pandemic did not even make it a day before being forced to grapple with the issue facing every system actively trying to get students into classrooms: What happens when someone comes to school infected?

Just hours into the first day of classes on Thursday, a call from the county health department notified Greenfield Central Junior High School in Indiana that a student who had walked the halls and sat in various classrooms had tested positive for the coronavirus.

Administrators began an emergency protocol, isolating the student and ordering everyone who had come into close contact with the person, including other students, to quarantine for 14 days. It is unclear whether the student infected anyone else.

“We knew it was a when, not if,” said Harold E. Olin, superintendent of the Greenfield-Central Community School Corporation, but were “very shocked it was on Day 1.”

10. Definitely didn't get if from the school at least

The first day. The problem is they didn’t check before the student walked in the classroom.

3. Unpossible. Children hardly ever get it, it's doubtful they spread it, and very few die from it.

7. Send them to YMCA camp down in Georgia for pre-screening of Covid.

Then no one will get infected, children or adults.



(Google : Georgia + YMCA)

I didn't realize Condi Rice was a part of this district's administration.

11. We've got parents in several districts here protesting schools that delayed opening

or plan to open on with online learning at first. Parents. Protesting. For their children to go back to school in person ASAP. Unbelievable.

6. We were "very shocked it was on Day 1"? Unbelievable.

I just looked. This community is 30 minutes from central Indianapolis. One guess where most of their parents work? It's not in a cornfield.

8. This was predictable. It's entirely unsurprising that in a population of a certain size

there would be at least one infected child to walk through the door on the first day. Congratulations on the success of your totally unnecessary and potentially deadly science experiment, Greenfield Central Jr High. :slow clap:

9. I'd place the over-under as Labor Day for schools opening in August.

Originally, I thought Halloween, but on further consideration...

Explains why 150,000 plus are on the death toll record. If we hadn't counted them, those people would still be ALIVE?

19. The question should be

Why was a student allowed in school before the results of the COVID test was known?
Anybody who has a COVID test should quarantine until the results are known.

Children May Carry Coronavirus at High Levels, Study Finds
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/30/health/coronavirus-children.html

"The research does not prove that infected children are contagious, but it should influence the debate about reopening schools, some experts said.
It definitely shows that kids do have levels of virus similar to and maybe even higher than adults,” Dr. Heald-Sargent said. “It wouldn’t be surprising if they were able to shed” the virus and spread it to others."

"The results are consistent with those from a German study of 47 infected children between the ages 1 and 11, which showed that children who did not have symptoms had viral loads as high as adults’, or higher. And a recent study from France found that asymptomatic children had C.T. values similar to those of children with symptoms."

"The experts all emphasized that the findings at least indicate that children can be infected. Those who harbor a lot of virus may spread it to others in their households, or to teachers and other school staff members when schools reopen."

27. Awful nice of the Indiana school district to play along with our Dem fake virus ruse

If we're powerful enough to get the whole world to play along, rigging the election for Biden should be a piece of cake!
