- A second grade student in Sixes Elementary has contracted coronavirus after attending the first day of class.
- Now their classroom had to be closed for disinfection while the teacher and 20 other students had to be quarantined.
As Cherokee County School’s Sixes Elementary reopened in Georgia last Monday, a second grade student ended up testing positive of the coronavirus after the first day of in-person classes.
This has since resulted to their classroom being closed for disinfection by Tuesday. Also, the student’s teacher and 20 other learners in the class have been asked to self-quarantine for the next two weeks.
The incident has since prompted officials and parents to have lengthy discussions about whether reopening schools is a good idea or not, especially these days as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases continue to soar.
As of this writing, investigation is currently ongoing to determine how the virus spread in the children.
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci has repeatedly reminded the importance of implementing safety protocols as schools plan to reopen.
Wearing masks is not mandatory in the state and so at the moment, Cherokee County only encourages (but doesn’t require) students to wear masks and observe social distancing as precautionary measures to help prevent transmission of the virus.
Meanwhile, several photos taken at North Paulding High School in Dallas has recently surfaced online, showing students crowding a hallway as they move to their classes.
In the said images, only a few students can be seen wearing masks while social distancing is, unfortunately, not observed at all.
Brian Ottot, supervisor of Paulding County, confirmed that the photos are real and added they do not “look good.”
The official, however, sided with the district decision not to require the wearing of masks.
“Wearing a mask is a personal choice and there is no practical way to enforce a mandate to wear them,” said the Ottot.
