The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently issued epidemic prevention guidelines for reopening schools during the epidemic. The guidance recommends that schools implement reopening plans in phases, depending on the severity of the pandemic in their area, and that schools take the necessary steps when they resume in-person instruction.
However, many parents and teachers of students are worried about whether the school can really protect the lives of teachers and students.
The latest guidance issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention points out that communities with fewer than 50 new confirmed cases per 100,000 residents in the past seven days can reopen schools and teach face-to-face. However, it is also recommended that schools take masks, social distancing, wash hands frequently and other necessary when returning face-to-face teaching. Measures.
Following the guidelines, the California Teachers Union held an online press conference, and some parents and educators expressed concern about reopening schools.
A spokesman for the California Teachers Union pointed out that many schools do not have relevant prevention and control resources at present, and cannot even provide enough personal protective equipment.
Some parents said that “unbelieve that schools can make primary school students wear masks and maintain social distancing throughout”, and that “the virus variants are spreading gradually, and various circumstances show that it is too early to reopen schools”.
