    This is a fantasy. Kids (up to high school age) would’ve ripped open those suits and be chewing on them.

    My guess is opening schools will let covid take more kids than all school shootings combined. Over to you Dumbo.

    Not very funny. There may never be a vaccine, herd immunity may only last for 6 months, this virus may split into 2 or 3 varieties, and the virus may develop it’s own immunity to any medicine. Three years from now people may call these “the good old days”.

    Live kids can always get an education later; dead kids get nothing but grieving loved ones.

    “White House press secretary: ‘The science should not stand in the way of’ schools fully reopening”. That pretty much says it all as far as the Whitehouse attitude.
