Wake Up! 1. This is about protecting the health care system so that there is medical staff, protection equipment & respirators available. How would you like to be told "we are at capacity and there are no beds available." 2. Because teachers & support staff either have been exposed or contracted the virus & have to quarantine for 14 days finding substitutes to replace them is becoming difficult. Stop thinking only of yourself! Look at the bigger picture!


Doesn't it seem odd that lately the Trib is simply reporting closings and not cases? I thought there was an uptick in cases?


Closing down the society is not going to stop the virus. Chidren per the "science" are much less likely to contract the virus with a 99.9% recovery rate. But yet we continue to live and allow the media to scare and control us.
