Stupid about AGW!!
This is the same policy of my school district and at least a couple of others in Tulsa metro. Do other OK public schools have different policies?

Florida's new top health official issued a controversial emergency order Wednesday that lets parents choose whether their children will quarantine after they are exposed to the coronavirus.
The order, signed by Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, still requires children with covid-19 symptoms or a positive coronavirus test to isolate. But children who are exposed to the coronavirus by coming into close contact with someone who tests positive do not have to stay home if they do not have symptoms.

Same as our school and we've received emails for all our kids at least once this school year they were exposed

My kids school is the same way. Private but they went with what the public school was doing.

I'm torn. One one hand having the kids in quarantine was challenging last year. My oldest had 3 and my youngest had three. In each case, to my knowledge there wasn't a single kid that tested positive after their quarantine so I'm happy to see that if there is minimal chance of exposure we can not worry about it. For example one of the aids for the kids after school program tested positive right before Thanksgiving break last year. Based on the timing my kids had a week between when they were expose to someone who was wearing a mask and wasn't around them for an extended amount of time. They had no symptoms but had to stay home the week after break anyways. I'm ok not worrying about stuff like that.

On the other hand, the schools covid policy is pretty much to pretend it isn't going on and as someone who believes what they did last year to prevent the spread worked, telling parents it's ok to send a kid that sat next to a kid that caught it your kid doesn't have to quarantine if you don't want them to seems problematic.

This is the general policy for rural Minnesota. A week ago we saw transmission in 26 schools and a week later it's in the 90's. If we could have kept the policy from last year in place and left quarantine to the parents judgement I would have been more comfortable with it. But pretending it isn't a problem because we "want to get back to normal" is only going to delay actually getting back to normal. Hopefully it doesn't get too out of hand in the next 60 days because we are a month away from getting 5 and older vaccinated and that will make the school issue much easier to manage.

To put this into context and I’ll admit there are parts I might have wrong.

People refuse to take a vaccine that costs $20/dose. That’s been been around for 20 years. That is proven to have a 90%+ success rate.

But when they get covid they are 1st in line for a treatment that costs $2000/treatment. That’s been around for 30 years (so only 10 more years). And whose success rate is still being studied but doesn’t look like it approaches that of a vaccine.

What kind of world do we live in?
True, it ought to be open to whomever needs it based on their case. I'd prefer we end the hospitalizations however possible...and the use of this treatment for both the vaccinated and unvaccinated does that quite well evidentially. We should NOT be rationing it in any way...this is, if not the answer, one of the main answers besides the vaccine for the problem of Covid IMHO. All of the above to keep people out of the hospital....once that is done (i.e. hospitalization and death minimized) this is in all logical terms, over. One of my parents vaccinated good friends got the virus...was nearly hospitalized and this treatment was given. He wasn't hospitalized as a result and MOSTLY (some people never fully recover) recovered in 2 days after the treatment.

So, they put the vaccine in salad dressing, store it at -20, ship it out to restaurants and grocery stores that don't have -20 freezers, they sit in on salad bars and shelves, and it all becomes inactive.

What absolute morons.

It would be a pretty genius way to get Oklahomans some super immunity. It's not like anyone pays attention to what's in that stuff anyway
